Juvederm or Radiesse for Temporary Scar Filler?

Hello! Needing some advice regarding a depressed scar on the side of chin. I would like to start off with a temporary filler and see how the results are first before doing anything more permanent.
Restylane or radiesse
In a scar, either one may be fine but if you do not like the result, the restylane can be dissolved fairly easily.
Filler to raise a depressed acne scar
When treating depressed scars, especially when they are small in diameter, using hyaluronic acid gives an advantage that Radiesse doesn't, specifically, if you are unhappy with the result, hyaluronidase can be injected to remove the Restylane or Juvederm, but Radiesse would have to be removed surgically. There are times though that the latter two fillers could create a bluish color of the skin and this might happen if more of it needs to be injected, especially superficially, to raise the scar further. If the scar is wide and deep, Radiesse might be more effective .

If I had to choose one filler, I would choose Radiesse because of it properties.

Lifting a Depressed Scar
I think you are going about it the right way.
For the scar to be lifted, its tethering inferior attachments ("roots") need to be divided (SUBCISION) and a filler placed. If the choice is between Juvederm or Radiesse, I would pick Radiesse. Another option is Perlane. These are thicker formulations which would resists a downward retraction of the released scar.
Radiesse would be my first choice as a scar filler
Because Radiesse is thicker and stays where you but it I find it works better on scars. Juvederm is a great product because is so smooth and goes in so easily, but this also makes it less than ideal for raising a depressed scar as the material will diffuse out around the tight scar and not lift it as well. Hope this helps.
