The temples lie at the side of the face, just lateral to the eyes. The tail of the eyebrows finishes at the front of your temples. During the ageing process, we all lose volume in our temples. A hollowing of the temples is a natural part of the ageing process. Soft tissue and bone dissolves while muscles and under-skin fat change. This leads to less structural support in the temple area, which results in folds, wrinkles and volume loss.
Typically this process starts in your mid 20’s and will become more obvious in your 40’s. If you exercise regularly, eat well and run, it’s possible that the ageing process and the hollowing of your temple region has been exacerbated. These changes can cause an appearance that looks similar to a ‘peanut’ – a wide forehead, narrow temples and narrow cheeks. But there is a solution; the volume in your temples can be replaced using dermal fillers.
Dermal filler treatment is very effective for temple hollowing. We use dermal filler injections to re-volumise and restore your temples.
Many dermal fillers are made from a clear gel composed of a substance that is naturally found in skin. Dermal fillers vary with viscosity, thickness, and longevity. We tend to use finer fillers in areas where your skin is fine and smoothness is critical, like your eye area and temple area.
Our dermal filler treatment for temples can be done with a needle or a blunt micro-cannula injection technique. A needle temple filler technique involves a single puncture with a needle. This is passed through the top section of your outside eyebrow to a single point near the bone. We then inject dermal filler downwards to smooth and fill the area out.
The procedure is not painful but an expert is needed to deliver the treatment in a safe manner, as this region can be dangerous to treat.
At DD CLINICAL all our practitioners have had the appropriate training, and have safely delivered hundreds of procedures.
