A Beauty Secret

Temples aren’t often the first area people think about in correcting an aging face, but in fact the temples are one of the first areas to be affected by aging, particularly in slim Caucasian people. The temples are a key factor in signaling a young face versus an older face. Hollow temples can make your whole face look sunken, fatigued, or sickly, even if you feel great. 

Temples also affect how proportional the entire face looks and act as a support for the brows and upper eyes. When the temples lose volume, this can accelerate sagging in the whole upper face and create a “peanut” like appearance to the face.

How Dermal Fillers Can Help

Though the temples have an outsized effect on how the face looks, there is a simple fix: adding volume with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are viscous substances of varying thicknesses that add volume and structure to the areas in which they are injected. This scaffolding is effective but temporary, and maintenance is required to maintain peak results.

The best dermal fillers to use for temple hollows are those made of hyaluronic acid (a substance that exists naturally in the body), as well as the Ca++ based Radiesse and poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA-SCA) Sculptra. At The Spiegel Center, we often use any of these FDA-approved fillers to rejuvenate the temples and upper face. Hyaluronic fillers are pliable and can be contoured with ease, provide very natural-looking results, and often work well in combination with bio-stimulating fillers like Radiesse and Sculptra.

What Happens During A Temple Filler Session?

The initial step to temple revitalization is a consultation with one of the highly-qualified members of the aesthetic non-surgical team. During the consultation, your cosmetic goals and concerns will be discussed in depth. A careful examination of your face will be conducted, along with a thorough review of your medical history. 

With that information, a custom plan is made to meet your needs. Administering dermal fillers takes less than 30 minutes and is done in the comfort of our well-appointed clinic. A topical anesthetic as well as other means can be applied as needed to ensure that you are comfortable at every step of the way. 

Next, the dermal filler is carefully injected into the target location and gently massaged into the area.  Patients can resume most regular activities that same day, though they are advised to avoid touching their face and direct sunlight for a few days. Slight swelling and redness are common but not long-lasting.

Experience Is Important

It cannot be overstated that a seasoned professional is vital when injecting anything into the face. Dermal fillers need to be used in the correct amount and placed in the right areas, which only a highly trained practitioner can do. Each patient requires a unique touch, and only those with years of clinical practice have the discernment to know the best approach. 

Plus, if something goes wrong or the patient is unhappy with the results, a qualified injector knows how to reverse the effects of the filler and ensure that the patient is safe and comfortable. When it comes to the face, the best deal on the market might end up costing you more in follow-up repair visits. The Spiegel Center doctors have the expertise you can trust.
