The temples are an area often overlooked despite the dramatic difference they can make to our overall appearance. Youthful appearance is characterized by convex or slightly rounded temples, complementing full and prominent cheekbones – the foundation of the ‘heart-shaped face’. With age, the natural fat pads and collagen scaffold which give us these desirable features break down, resulting in a hollowed out and sunken appearance.
By replacing the lost volume with fillers in the temples and the cheeks, we can reverse the sunken and tired look and restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance. These treatments are often most effective in combination with tear trough (under-eye) augmentation.
Most types of dermal filler are composed of Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid naturally exists within the skin and it’s what helps give the face volume, shape, hydration, and elasticity. Dermal fillers can be injected into the skin to add volume to areas of the face which have lost their support and can also be used for facial re-contouring to improve facial features and rebalance profiles.
Treatment is usually quick and the results are normally immediate.
Temple and forehead dermal fillers consist of injections of clear hyaluronic acid gel in small amounts. These are injected into your temporal areas or forehead, so the gel adds volume to the area, giving a smooth appearance to the skin while reducing lines, restoring shape and giving contour to the face.
