What are chicken pox scars and what causes them?

Chicken pox scars are depressed, indented, sunken areas of the skin that appear following an attack of chicken pox. Chicken pox is a virus that results in inflammatory lesions on the skin, usually at a young age. The inflammation can be so severe that it causes a loss of collagen, elastin and supportive elements of the skin as the chicken pox inflammatory lesion resolves and the skin heals with a depressed, sunken, scarred appearance.

Can I treat chicken pox scars? And if so, how can they be treated?

Chicken pox scar patients can be treated with a variety of techniques and procedures at SpaMedica Toronto Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre by Dr. Stephen Mulholland, Toronto cosmetic plastic surgeon. One of the more common and more successful treatments for chicken pox scars includes fractional carbon dioxide and fractional erbium laser resurfacing. These fractional laser resurfacing treatments send columns of laser beams into the chicken pox scar, resulting in thermal heating, stimulation and formation of new collagen and elastin that plump the appearance of the chicken pox scar. Alone or in conjunction with fractional laser treatments the chicken pox scar can be treated with injectable soft tissue fillers injected under the Chicken pox scar to plump it up from below. Injectable fillers used commonly for chicken pox scars include: Sculptra, Radiesse, Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, Teosyal and fat grafting. Quite commonly, Dr. Stephen Mulholland, Toronto cosmetic plastic surgeon, will use a combination of fractional lasers from the top and injectable soft tissue fillers from below to “Sandwich” the chicken pox scar and optimize the smoothing and flattening of the chicken pox scar. Fractional needle rejuvenation using fractional RF technology like the eMatrix or fractional needle ablative treatments can also be used to improve the appearance of Toronto Chicken Pox Scar Patients.

SpaMedica Toronto and Dr. Stephen Mulholland, have been serving Toronto chicken pox scar patients since 1997 and are both one of Toronto and Canada’s oldest, most experienced, recognized and reputable cosmetic plastic surgery centres and Toronto plastic surgeons.

If I have my a chicken pox scars treated will they come back? How can I prevent this?

Chicken pox scar patients that are treated by Dr. Stephen Mulholland at SpaMedica Toronto using a variety of the fractional laser resurfacing devices and injectable soft tissue fillers will generally achieve nice results and recurrence or worsening of the chicken pox scar is very uncommon. As patients age, with loss of subcutaneous tissue and elasticity, the chicken pox scars can look enlarged and elongated and repeat treatment can be performed with topical fractional lasers and soft tissue fillers, in combination with little mini lifts of the face, brow or cheek and the skin repositioning procedures are performed to tighten and smoothen the skin supporting the chicken pox scar.
