Do you need Temple Filler?

Temple filler is a type of cosmetic injectable treatment that can be used to create a more balanced facial appearance for those with hollow temples.

This procedure involves injecting dermal fillers into the temporal area, which is an area located at the sides of the head above your ears and extending down to your temples.

It can help to improve a person's appearance by restoring volume and contouring the face for a more youthful look.

Temple dermal filler can be useful for those who want to reduce or eliminate hollows or deep wrinkles in their temple areas caused by the natural ageing process, sun damage and other factors.

It's also commonly used as a way to create definition in the temples, helping give you a more sculpted, balanced look.

The results are often seen immediately after treatment, with lasting results of up to two years.

The procedure itself generally takes around 10-15 minutes and requires minimal recovery time compared to more invasive surgical methods such as facelifts and brow lifts.

While there may be some redness and swelling around the injection sites initially following treatment, these should subside within 1-2 days.

Overall, temple filler treatments offer an effective way for people to achieve long-lasting improvements in facial appearance with minimal downtime or risk involved – making it an ideal choice for those looking for subtle yet significant changes in their facial features without undergoing surgery.

Who Is Likely to Get Temple Hollows?

Hollow temples typically affect men and women over the age of 30.

The temple area hollows—which are caused by loss of facial fat, skin laxity and skeletal changes—typically appear beneath the temples and can make your upper face look aged and tired.

This is why Dr Chike may suggest temple fillers.

People with thin or shallow facial features may be more likely to experience temple hollows due to their bone structure.

Additionally, those who have suffered significant weight-loss or have undergone dramatic facial surgery can also be susceptible to this condition.

Consulting with a qualified provider is the best way to determine if you have temple hollows and what treatment options are right for you.

What product is used for Temple Fillers?

The products used for temple fillers primarily contain hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in your skin that aids in keeping it hydrated and supple.

Once the hyaluronic acid dermal filler is injected into to the soft tissue in the temporal region, these substances are able to attract and retain water molecules while providing lift and plumpness to the treated areas.

This process restores volume and contours the face so that it appears more youthful appearance with a well-defined shape.

Why Do We Lose Volume in Our Temples?

At a certain age, our skin tends to thin out and lose its youthful fullness.

This is particularly noticeable around the temple area, where skin loses much of its elasticity over time.

Age-related hollow temples can make people look tired, gaunt or older than they actually are.

Sun exposure, smoking and lifestyle factors like lack of sleep are some of the more common contributing factors that lead to volume depletion in our temples.

Significant weight loss may also cause this issue after rapid fat reduction occurs across the face and throughout the body in particular hollow temples in the upper face.

Finally, genetics can play a role as well – some people simply have a natural tendency towards thinner skin with less fat deposits to fill out their faces as they get older.

How Does Temple Filler Effect the Overall Appearance of Your Face?

Dermal filler injections are a popular cosmetic treatment used to improve the contours of the temple region and restore lost volume in hollows and wrinkles.

The filler is injected directly into the temples and helps create a more balanced facial structure, as well as a smoother, younger-looking appearance as well as increasing the skin firmness.

For example, by replenishing volume loss in hollowed-out cheeks or temples, temple filler treatment can help enhance bone structure for a more defined look.

As dermal fillers work to attract and retain water molecules within treated areas, they also help to provide lift and plumpness – resulting in a softer facial silhouette overall.

Finally, dermal fillers can also act as muscle relaxers when administered in small quantities.

In this way, temple filler can produce a more youthful aesthetic with improved definition across all areas of the face.

How Safe Are Temple Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a safe and effective way to restore temple hollowing, helping to achieve a smoother and more balanced facial structure.

The procedure is minimally invasive, with most patients reporting only minimal discomfort when the filler is being injected.

There may be some temporary swelling or redness around the injection site, which should subside within a few days.

Patients are advised to avoid intense activities that could cause trauma to the face for 24 hours after the procedure.

In general, dermal fillers have been deemed very safe when administered by a trained professional who has alot of experience in facial aesthetics such as Dr Chike.
