Can fillers be used on chicken pox scars? Which fillers would be most effective?
Fillers can occasionally be used for chicken pox scars. Often the base of the scar needs to be released before the filler is placed. Usually we will use one of the hyaluronic acid fillers for this, Restylane, Juvederm. Since these fillers are temporary however, often we will recommend surgical excision of the scars as this offers a permanent solution and often the result is excellent.
