Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in .
Acne scars can be treated effectively now and you can expect upto 70-80 % improvement.
Treatment modalities include dermaroller and subsicion also fractional CO2 laser can be a good option.chemical peeling with glycolic acid can be a good option.

5 to 7 sittings of any of the modality would be required for optimum effect.
The most effective treatment would be combination of dermarolller with CO2 laser.
Costs of the treatment for chemical peeling and dermaroller would be anywhere around 1.5 to 4 thousand per sitting.
Laser can be a little more costly and upto 5thousand rs per sitting would be required.
However cost depends on type of clinic and city and extent of scars.

Any dermatologist with MD credentials can provide you with these treatment.
Home based treatment is retino a cream at night time daily over scars .this will serve as priming for any procedure.
I will be available for follow up.

Hi Again,

Goels Cutis Skin Studio @ Namdar House Ground Floor, Opp Bandra Police Station, 89 Hill Road, Bandra West, Mumbai , is a good place to get treatment.

Or you can visit your nearest dermatologist with MD credentials and have a personal consultation for treatment.

Hope this helps.
