Chicken Pox Scars
Indented chicken pox scars are usually caused by a loss of structural collagen deep within the dermis of the skin as a result of an acute chicken pox vesicle. Atrophic chicken pox scars are noticeable months and years after the onset of chickenpox and rarely resolve on their own. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian uses a Hidef scar revision protocol for chickenpox scars that includes subcision, fractional laser, Venus Viva, Ematrix, fillers, and TCA Cross to help even out deeply indented scars.
Venus Viva and Ematrix are excellent fractional RF treatments for deep chickenpox scars. Unlike fractional laser, Venus Viva and Ematrix cause less skin damage and thus have shorter periods of recovery.
Earlobe Scars and Repair
Injuries to the earlobes can occur after wearing heavy earrings or as a result of trauma. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian specializes in the repair of torn earlobes under local anesthesia or twilight sedation. Torn earlobes can be sutured using a less invasive approach that minimizes downtime.
