Beauty routines often overlook the temples, yet they quietly play a crucial role in shaping our facial aesthetics. As we age, these unassuming features undergo changes, losing volume and altering the contours of our face. Temple filler is the solution for both men and women. Male dermal filler face lifts usually will need this treatment.
The temples, situated at the edge of our brows, running up to the ears and back to the hairline, begin to shrink with age. This natural concavity is accentuated as fat pads, collagen, and bone diminish, creating a sunken appearance. Certain factors, such as intense cardiovascular activity, make certain individuals more prone to temple hollowing.
Well not quite on their own but as a compliment of dermal fillers and PDO threads, absolutely! Temple fillers emerge are non-surgical solution that revitalises the temples and lifts the eyes and jawline. Administered through injections our fillers use biodegradable CE approved hyaluronic acid (HA) restoring moisture and volume to the temporal area.
Temples contribute significantly to the upper face’s contoured appearance. Temples define youthful features. Full temples play a key role in cushioning the face from the bone, contributing to a desirable ‘heart-shaped face’ in women and a well-defined upper face in men. As we age and the temples lose volume the face begins to have a skull like appearance which add years quite unnecessarily. Temples are often ignored by practitioners but they are a crucial part of any facial rejuvenation using dermal fillers.
The temples, situated at the edge of our brows, running up to the ears and back to the hairline, begin to shrink with age. As we become older the temples experience bone, muscle and fat loss, compounded by a gradual reduction in collagen. The combination of these three factors leads to sagging and hollowed of the skin. Forming a concave or ‘sunken’ depression between the brows, hairline, and cheeks. Men tend to suffer much earlier which makes it very important to address in a person’s transgender feminisation journey.
Temple fillers offer a range of benefits, including a more youthful appearance. Yet the main attraction is that subtle and natural-looking enhancement. It’s that tweek that looks great but no one can pinpoint. The treatment’s minimal side effects, long-lasting results, and collagen-stimulating properties make it an appealing option. What could be better?
Unlike surgical alternatives, administering temple fillers is a quick procedure with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Temple fillers involve minimal recovery time, allowing individuals to resume their routine immediately after the injections. You will be in our clinic for no more than an hour. Most of that time is spent doing a very detailed consultation. The procedure itself take around 10 minutes.
While temple fillers have minimal side effects, common reactions include temporary swelling, redness, pain, bruising, rash, and itching. Pain can also be felt in the jawline area. All of this will resolve itself within 2 week. Rare but serious side effects are possible which is why Lorena keeps open communication with all her patients due to the importance of post-injection care to minimise risks.
There are no specification on what filler should be used in the temple area. This means that different practitioners will use what they’re most comfortable with. We highly recommend using Hyaluronic Acid (HA) temple filler treatment to restore volume to the temples and achieve natural-looking results. Your body will absorb these fillers over time. We do not use permanent fillers in our clinic because of the dangers associated with them. We use a soft filler because this is such a sensitive area and safety is our first priority. All our fillers are CE marked and of the highest quality.
We may also discuss with you filler in other areas of the face in order to achieve the look that you’re looking for:
Individuals with hollow or depressed temples, a drooping brow, and sagging eyelids are potential candidates for temple fillers. Good overall health, non-smoking habits, and avoiding blood-thinning medications are considerations for candidacy.
While temple fillers are temporary, our patients tend to need a top up every 18 to 24 months. Maintenance injections can be done for to prolong results. We like to see you around every 12 months at which time we will tell you if you need a top up or not. Fillers are metabolised at different speeds on different parts of the face.
Prices start at £250 per ml. Temple fillers offer a non-surgical and transformative solution to address age-related volume loss in the temples.
