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.

Are there natural remedies that would help flatten deep scars due to chickenpox especially on the face part?

I once had chickenpox when I was on my High school days and it took me a week or 2 to recover from it and most of the time I can't really stand the itchiness that I felt so I just scratch or sometimes just tapping it to lessen the pain. Then at that time when I'm almost recovered from it, I notice the deep scars that it left on me. I once tried over the counter lotions or something you just put on your skin and leave it like that but still there's no change that happen and it really bothers me especially because its on the face. That is why I'm taking a moment to search for solutions that will eventually help and so I found this hope you and this site could help me. I still haven't read the article because this message just pops up and then I followed with it. Nevertheless, mine is like 2 1/2 years ago when I had chickenpox and until now I still haven't cured it well I prefer natural than going to a dermatologist and having check up, well that will still cost me so is there a natural remedy that would help me cure deep scar which occurred longer and have not yet treated because some said that its not a fresh scar anymore so it will be a permanent one which I do not want to accept.
