You might know how dermal filler injection help in enhancing the appearance and volume of lips, but did you know you can also improve the appearance of your temples?

Surprisingly, the temple is the area that often gets overlooked during facial treatments and procedures. Loss of volume around temples can have a major impact on the overall facial appearance and make the skin appear aged.

You can restore the lost volume in your temples by getting temple hollow filler treatment to rejuvenate your face and getting a youthful and refreshed look.

Causes of Volume Lose in Temples

The firmness and fullness of the convex or round temples play a major role in creating a youthful appearance of your face. The temples create the basic structure for the rest of your features. However, with age, the face naturally loses bone mass mainly around temples, under eyes, and in cheeks.

The natural facial fat also starts reducing, especially around the temples, eyes, and cheeks. While you might think that fat loss is a good thing, but when you lose fat in areas that support the skin, it loses its youthfulness.

Aside from losing bone mass and facial fat, the skin produces less collagen as you age. This protein is responsible for keeping your skin tight and smooth to prevent signs of wrinkles and fine lines.

Without the support of collagen, fat, and bone mass, your skin starts sagging and forming hollow temples, under eyes, and cheeks. As a result, your bony ridge around your eyebrows becomes more pronounced, highlighting the crow’s feet around the eyes.

This loss of volume can be restored with dermal filler injections in the temples. It results in a refreshed and youthful appearance by reversing the tired and sunken look. This effect is subtle but still drastically enhances the facial appearance.

Benefits of Getting Temple Hollow Fillers

Aside from adding volume to your temple area, there are several other benefits of getting the temple hollow filler treatment. Some of them are highlighted below:

  • Improvement in the overall structure of your face, which prevents potential wrinkles and fine lines, as well as sagging skin.

  • Enhanced skin hydration as the dermal fillers includes hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced in the skin. It offers the right nutrition and hydration your skin needs to maintain its good health. When the hyaluronic acid levels increase, it also increases the moisture in the skin that results in a well-nourished and radiant appearance.

  • Dermal filler injections are a non-surgical and quick procedure to add volume to your temples. You will be done within an hour and resume your daily routine. It has minimal downtime and aftercare. However, it is essential to make sure that an experienced practitioner performs the treatment to avoid any complications that generally arise due to untrained practitioners.

  • The results are reversible. If you are not happy with the results, you can easily have the filler remove from your temples. Since the dermal fillers include hyaluronic acid, they can safely be dissolved by using the hyaluronidase process.

You can get glowing and younger-looking skin just by enhancing the volume in your temple. Make sure to discuss the process with your practitioner to determine how many fillers you need to get the results you want.
