The temple is the area between the top of the cheekbone and the brow bone that is next to the eye. Volume loss in this area is often overlooked. Through the aging process, you can develop sunken, hollow temples. Most temples do have a slight concavity, but excess concavity disrupts the frame or contour of the face. You can replace volume loss and contour the temples using dermal filler. Dermal fillers used in this area include, Juvederm Voluma®, Restylane Lyft®, and Radiesse®. Treating hollowing of the temples with filler will give your face a more youthful appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the benefit of temple augmentation?
Face temples are the small flat areas that sit at the edge of your brows, running up to the tip of your ears and back to your hairline. They help to define and shape a youthful face when they are plump and full. When filler is injected, the temporal area is noticeably recontoured and brought back to its youthful appearance.
Why do we lose volume in the temples?
A hollowing of the temples is a natural part of the aging process. Soft tissue and bone support diminishes, while muscle and fascia (your connective tissues) change. This leads to less structural support in the temple area, which results in volume loss and concavity.
How long do the effects of temple augmentation last?
The longevity of temple filler will vary, but many patients see results lasting up to a year or more.
