Hello,
Thanks for the query,
Microneedling is one of the procedure of scar removal.
Even LASERS can be used for this.
However the treatment modality depends on the type and depth of scar.
I would like to see a photograph of your face showing the scars.
This will help me in giving you best guidance.
I can suggest you everything regarding treatment modality, cost and where to get it done in bangalore.
Even I have a clinic in bangalore.
All these things can be decided only after seeing the photograph.
So please upload it as soon as possible.
waiting for your response.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the photograph,
Yes these scars need microneedling ( dermaroller).
It is done once a month and you will require at least 6 sittings for complete removal of scars as your scars are deep.
You can come at my centre.
The details are given in my profile.
At present I am out of town but other doctors are available.
You can call and tell my name to book an appointment.
The cost will be around 4000 per sitting.

Another option is Dr XXXXXXX at brigade road.
He is good in LASERS.

Regarding pigmentation,

This hyper pigmentation can be removed by using skin lightening creams.
Various creams are available like melalite xl, lookbrite, Lumaglow etc.
You can take any of them.

The following should be procedure to use it.
1. Wash your face in evening around 7.
2. Dry face and apply cream all over your face.
3. Keep it for one hour.
4. Wash face again.
5. Apply some moisturising cream and sleep.
6. In morning apply a sunscreen with spf at least 30.

Do this for a month, you will see the results.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you
