When a scar leaves a severe depression and discoloration in the skin it is best to consult with a dermatologist about your options for having the depression filled.

A scar with a depression, like you describe may respond to dermabrasion, which is the process of burnishing the scar with a wire brush to injure the area slightly so it will generate new skin cells to fill up the crater left by the chickenpox scar.

A technique called punch grafting, in which skin is removed from behind the ear to fill in the scar is also effective, but the discoloration in the depression may still remain.

Non Ablative laser Skin rejuvenation stimulate collagen in the crater of the scar so that collagen is encouraged to grow and fill it with new skin cells, just achieving the look of smoother skin.

One of these solutions may work for you. The least dangerous of all of the procedure is the Non Ablative laser skin rejuvenation as it does not cause any bleeding in the area being treated.
