For many people, the earliest signs of aging appear directly below the eyes. Dark circles, sagging skin, and hollowing occur as the skin loses elasticity and volume loss progresses with aging. The unfortunate result is a more aged and tired appearance.

Correcting the hollowness in the temple area is easier than ever with Ca++ based fillers like Radiesse™, poly-L-lactic acid synthetic polymer Sculptra™ and Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm®, Revance® RHA, Restylane®, and Versa®.

In some instances, the procedure may involve reducing the large masseter muscles to further narrow the area.
