Acne Scar Treatment
A scar is a permanent mark left on the skin after the healing of an injury or disease. Moderate to severe acne can sometimes cause damage to the surface and underlying layers of your skin, resulting in scarring. Scarring can occur if you have a family history, or if you pick or squeeze your pimples.
Our experience and personalized approach will help to identify and treat your acne to get your skin looking and feeling great again.

The Various Treatment Methods
Fraxel Laser: Fraxel Laser treatments have been considered the gold standard in non-invasive cosmetic procedures. Nitai boasts one of the most advanced Fraxel procedures around. We apply several tiny columns of light to the area being targeted, triggering the healing response. We also offer Fraxel dual treatments, which use two types of lasers in tandem so as to treat both the superficial as well as the deep layers of the skin.
CO2 Laser: This is one of the methods preferred by the experts at Nitai for removal of medium to severe acne scarring. It involves directing focused light beams onto the affected area. We use a Carbon Dioxide Laser or a CO2 laser as it is highly effective in treating persistent acne. The heat from the laser triggers the healing response, causing the increased production of structural proteins for connective tissues over the next few months, leading to lightening and eventual disappearance of scars. You are expected to get a topical anaesthetic administered prior to treatment. CO2 laser procedures involve a fairly hefty downtime. They are suitable for the lighter skin types and generally avoided for darker skin. You must avoid suntans in the weeks leading up to the treatment and also provide tanning history to the doctor treating you beforehand.
Skin Needling: This is also effective for superficial acne scarring and involves mildly puncturing the skin at micro-level using fine needles to trigger production of essential substances for cell growth and tissue proteins.
Skin Peels: These involve the usage of chemicals to remove the skin’s outer layers, and work best for superficial scars. Skin peel is best for effectually addressing skin concerns such as acne scarring, dull, lifeless and rough skin, aging skin, sun damaged skin, congestion, and hyperpigmentation.
Microdermabrasion: Particularly useful for mild scarring, the procedure involves buffing the skin with tiny crystals, which act like sandpaper to remove the rougher, uneven outer layers and diminish fine lines, scars and pigmentation. It is a chemical procedure and has absolutely zero downtime.
