How to get rid of chickenpox scars in adults?

I am 25 years old, I got chickenpox a month back and I still have a lot of scars on my face, breasts, back and waist. Sadly, the scars on my face are bigger and uglier, though thankfully fewer. I don't know how to get rid of them? How long does this process take? Is it possible to completely get rid of them, if you get chickenpox as an adult?

The length of time it takes to heal your chickenpox scares depends on what kind you have. Refer to the VisiHow article below to determine which kind of chickenpox you have, as well as the treatment options available for each type. For instance, if you have atrophic scars (which look like craters on your face) you will have to go to a dermatologist to discuss more medically-thorough options to fix your scars. However, if you have scars that look like dark acne marks, you can use some of the home remedies and over-the-counter medications listed in the article below to heal your scars.

How do I get rid of my raised chickenpox scars?

Hi! I got chickenpox when I was 12, and ever since I've had chickenpox scars; but they aren't like the two listed: they are raised, firm, and dark pink. What can I do to get rid of them?!

If you wish to get rid of the scars instead of masking them, then you will need to see a scar-and-laser specialist, such as a dermatologist, or a physician with a scar-treatment background, as you need a complex microneedling and laser treatment. The treatment involves flattening the scars first, changing their hue with microneedle resurfacing, and using anti-inflammatory injections. You will only need several visits to the doctor to get rid of the scars permanently. Unfortunately, folk remedies or ointments like Contractubex will have little or no effect on those scars.
