Pitted acne scars are formed on the skin mainly due to incorrect acne treatment or acne extraction. There are also other causes for pitted scars on the skin such as past injuries, burns & scalds, chickenpox...

Both resulted from acne or injuries; however, pitted scars are extremely different from post-inflammatory skin hyper-pigmentations. Hyper-pigmentations can fade with time and can be treated with topical products while pitted scars cannot. Therefore, the best way to get rid of pitted scars is through clinical treatments. 

At ROHTO AOHAL CLINIC, our pitted scar/acne scar treatment strictly follows the Japanese standards in safety and quality. If you are looking for a good skin clinic to help with your acne scars, ROHTO AOHAL CLINIC is definitely worth a try!


At ROHTO AOHAL CLINIC, we use Fractional CO2 Laser technology to treat pitted scars/acne scars.

The mechanism of the treatment is using a laser beam with a wavelength of 10.600 nm to target both the epidermis and the dermis of the skin. The laser beam is divided into thousands of tiny but deep columns into the skin, called microthermal treatment zones (MTZs). By using the MTZs, the laser only targets and treats intensively within the zone while the surrounding healthy tissues remain intact and unaffected. 

The laser beam creates microscopic fake wounds on the skin, triggering the body's natural healing response. The healing response then leads to new collagen formation and collagen remodelling on the treated area.  

Therefore, Fractional CO2 Laser is a great method for stimulating collagen production and resurfacing the skin. The treatment works especially well on pitted scars/acne scars. The ideal treatment interval is once a month. In general, customers will achieve smooth skin, free from pitted scars/acne scars after 3 - 5 treatments (the result may vary, depending on each customer's condition).
