Would a scar revision be an effective treatment for facial scars from chickenpox?

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 09 August 2011


I have a few fairly shallow as well as small in diameter (1-3mm) facial scars from chickenpox. Would a scar excision be an effective treatment and if so, do you carry out this procedure? Many thanks!


Scar excision is not a good choice for this type of problem.

Scar subscision in combination with surface treatments or filler injections is likely to provide better results.
