Acne scarring, Sculptra or Bellafill?
This is an often asked question and the choice is easy for me. Bellafill is a better option. It is basically WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). It is placed into the depressed scar and lifts it. The bovine collagen is replaced with your own collagen over the next 3 months. With Sculptra, the fill initially is mostly water. It is harder to be precise because you actually don't know how much of the fill is going to end up appearing down the road. Also, Bellafill is a longer solution than Sculptra. Don't get me wrong, Sculptra is a great filler when used to do a complete facial volumization. Bellafill is not nearly as robust but that is not critical in treating acne scars. Try Infini as well for the scars that aren't as deep.
