I recently had chicken pox and it has left ugly scars and spots on my body. What can I do to get rid of them forever?

Chicken pox is a common summer disease and often leaves pesky scars on the body. While you will be able to hide a few which are on the stomach or back with your clothing, scars on the face or other exposed areas are easy to spot by others. These scars can be notoriously difficult to treat. However, with the advent of lasers, dermatologists have many options at their disposal to help treat these scars. You should consider getting fractional ablative laser resurfacing done which will help you get rid of those scars. Otherwise, microdermabrasion can also be an option.
