Could chickenpox scars leave on our face for the whole life or will it fade away by it self?

I have lots of chickenpox' scars on my face and my body, what is the best way to fade away all the scars?

They will mostly fade away on their own over a few weeks or several months depending on how superficial or deep they are because of your skin's physiologic ability to heal itself. Atrophic scars are deeper scars (pitted scars) mostly due to chickenpox which makes your skin's ability to heal itself more slower and longer while some severe atrophic scars remains visible after many months or years. Light rounded scars caused by chickenpox are mostly lighter and superficial which makes your skin's natural ability to regenerate itself more faster to a few days or weeks to completely rid of these scars. The efficient way to properly deal with these types of scars is a combination of topical scar remover creams or home remedy topical solutions, skin lotion rich in vitamin E and Aloe Vera and with proper hydration (8 to 12 glasses of water daily) and nutrition especially on fruits and vegetables. The skin lotion rich in Aloe Vera and vitamin E effectively nourishes and improves the skin's ability to regenerate and the fruits (especially citrus fruits) and vegetables contains essential vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients which strengthen your immune system.

If I use contractubex on my deep chickenpox scars, how long would it take to get rid of my deep scar?

How long till my chickenpox scar disappear if I use contratubex, and is it okay if I use it on my face?

Contractubex is effective, but you would really need to use it patiently over a period of time for you to see results. If your scar is very deep, you may need to do it much longer. Average time is about 3 months for a regular scar and you need to be ready to continue it further if you have a worse condition.

Was this helpful? Yes | No

The way you would apply Contractubex will also help a lot in its effectiveness. Many people will apply Contractubex last, which is wrong. What you need to do is before applying any other product on the affected area, you have to put Contractubex first so that you are sure that it actually gets fully absorbed.

Our skin has patterns, after getting hurt the skin tries to regenerate that pattern. Deep wounds which are left unhealed especially in a small age, become part of skin pattern. Hence, the natural regeneration or products that boost natural regeneration doesn't work in such cases. But cosmetic surgeries can help in this matter.
