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.
Dear Skin Repair Needed:Sculptra will not help the acne scars seen in your photos. You should benefit by a series of #Bellafill treatments, and will likely see even better results if Micronnedling with PRP is employed as well. Topical creams such as Regenica, Alastin and topical Retinol, can enhance the response. All the best, Dr. Clark
Bellafill for Acne Scars.
While there are many treatments that are touted as giving reasonable results for your type of acne scarring, the best I have seen to date is Bellafill. It is actually FDA approved especially for the type of acne scars you seem to predominantly have. Bellafill will fill in your scars and help smooth the skin out for you. You may need other treatment modalities after to help with fine scars or scar pigmentation but the most cost effective treatment is to start with Bellafill
I hope that helps.
Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen
You need a combination approach with fillers, lasers, microneedling/PRP and subcision. Surgical treatment may be needed for improvement. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
You deserve to have better looking skin. Depressed and rolling acne scars respond well to a succession of Bellafill injections. Sculptra creates a deeper fill and will do nothing for your type of scarring.
