Textured Ceiling

We need to have a few areas on the ceiling's in a bedroom and adjoining bath were the texture has flaked off. One place because of a water leak- where it left a water stain. The other is where the texture has come loose and fell because of moisture in the bath.
What I am wondering, does the entire ceiling in the two rooms need to be scraped, fixed and resprayed ?
or Can the individual spots be scraped, painted with Kiln's and then the whole ceiling be professionally re-sprayed.
Any advise out there

If the texture is "popcorn" and it has been there for a while it is probably deteriorating to the point that it will continue to come off. The most direct approach is to remove it and apply something less extreme like an orange peel texture. Removal is fairly easy, albeit messy. Just spray the ceiling with water from a small spray bottle, let it sit for a few minutes, and scrape the texture off. Work in small sections.
You may want to have someone texture and paint for you.

Texture in a bathroom is poor practice. Remove and prime/paint with a quality oil base made for bath areas. A rough nao roller could give you some orange peel texture that is nice looking and practical.

Are you sure the leak repair is permanent? If so, remove old texture and redo as you wish, retextured, plain paint, tin ceiling tiles, whatever.
