Temple filler: Treating hollow temples for anti-ageing

Temple filler in Doncaster: Many of our patients here at KL Cosmetic Clinics consider lips, cheek, chin and jawline fillers as a treatment to help them look and feel younger.

However, many people aren’t aware that dermal fillers in the temples, can really make a huge difference to the appearance of facial ageing. This may be due to the fact that this treatment isn’t talked about as much as cheek or lip fillers and therefore, may not be as ‘trendy’ or well-known…

We have seen some astounding results achieved by placing small amounts of dermal fillers into the temples. It’s anti-ageing, makes the eyes look wider and brighter and can even lift the brows!

Why treat hollow temples?

Your temples are situated at either side of your face, just next to your eyes. The outer edges of your eyebrows finish at the very front of your temples and the upper edge meets with your forehead. As the ageing process commences, we can lose volume in our temples. Soft tissues, fat and bone dissolves, whilst the muscles and fascia (connective tissues) alter in their composition and appearance. This leads to far less structural support and volume, as well as a loss of that ‘plump’ looking skin in your temple area. This can lead to lines and wrinkles as well as outer brow sagging.

This process typically starts in your mid 20’s and will look more obvious in your 40’s. If you are someone who exercises very regularly with activities such as running and you eat a healthy, low fat diet, it’s possible that the ageing process and the hollowing of your temple region has been exacerbated.

A youthful, feminine facial shape is that of a heart-shape or oval shape. If you experience temple hollowing, your face can change shape drastically – the appearance of a wide forehead, narrow temples and narrow cheeks with a square jawline, due to skin sagging. Using dermal fillers, we can volumize and restore a ‘plumper’ appearance in the temples.

Temple filler treatment: why use dermal fillers?

Most dermal fillers are made from a clear gel-like substance and contain hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring sugar, found in the skin, connective tissues, joints and eyes and is responsible for youthful and hydrated skin. Dermal fillers vary in viscosity, thickness and longevity. At KL Cosmetic Clinics, we tend to use finer, less viscous dermal fillers in areas where your skin is delicate and smoothness is critical, like your temple area.

Generally, 1ml of dermal filler is needed per side to treat hollow temples.

A dermal filler treatment for the temples is carried out with a needle or a blunt micro-cannula injection technique and is a fairly quick procedure. A topical anaesthetic may be administered prior to the injection, so that you are completely comfortable, throughout. However, most of the dermal fillers we use here at KL Cosmetic Clinic are blended with a local anaesthetic that will significantly reduce any amount of discomfort during your temple filler procedure.

Blunt cannulas are less likely to pierce veins or artery walls, so this technique ensures there’s less chance of bruising in the treatment area. This means we can expertly place the injections more superficially into your skin with very little cosmetic downtime.

What to expect after your temple dermal filler treatment

The results will be immediately obvious after your temple dermal filler treatment. If you have any swelling, this will resolve within 2 to 3 days. However, in some rare cases, it can take up to 2 weeks for complete swelling to go down, but this is entirely normal.

After your temple filler treatment at KL Cosmetic Clinics, you’ll be invited to a 4-week follow up with your practitioner. Your results will be reviewed, and if you need a top up in our opinion, that is when you will receive it.

The longevity of your temple filler treatment will depend on several factors:

  • Your age
  • Your lifestyle (smoking, excessive exercise and sun exposure can shorten result times)
  • The amount of dermal filler used
  • The placement of the dermal filler
  • The type of dermal filler product used

Many of our patients report their results are lasting up to 12 months.
