Can collagen injections work on facial scars such as chicken pox scars? The old pock marks really bother me.

Successful treatment of acne scars usually involves using several different techniques, layered on top of one another. For instance, deep acne scars may require subcision (to raise the deepest part of the scar), filler (to further plump up the scar and return it to normal skin level), and light resurfacing, to smooth out any skin texture irregularities around the acne scar. By using a combination treatment approach, I have been able to achieve results impossible to attain by using any one method alone. For the final light resurfacing step, I have been particularly impressed by the results of the Fraxel/Mixto laser systems. I have been using these lasers in my office since it came on the market, and I find it to be an indispensable tool for management of acne scars and other scars. After one treatment with a combination Fraxel/Mixto laser systems, the texture of the skin is remarkably improved, and the acne scars are substantially diminished in appearance.
