Treating Your Temples with Juvederm and Other Dermal Fillers
When is Filler a Good Treatment Option for the Temples?
Often, the area around the temples will sink with age or after significant weight loss. This helps exaggerate the bone structure of the face and can sometimes make someone look a bit sickly. Hollowness in the temples can also create an unflattering shadow around the eyes and face, contributing to an overall dark or dreary appearance. “Fillers in the temples help to smooth these areas and remove this shadowing,” says Dr. Miriam Hanson, a board certified Dermatologist and cosmetic expert at Sanova Dermatology. Most patients, even those with thin skin, are good candidates for this minimally-invasive procedure.
What Positive Aesthetic Effects Does Dermal Filler Have for Facial Rejuvenation?
A filler treatment near the temples is very similar to using filler elsewhere in the face, in that it helps make the skin appear fuller and smoother. This increases the youthful look of your features by helping to remove shadowing and the sunken appearance that results from it.
How is Dermal Filler for the Temples Performed?
Dermal filler treatments for the temples are performed in the same way as other dermal filler treatments. “A dermatologist will work with you to decide the best filler or mix of fillers to use, then inject it to help achieve the desired contour,” Dr. Hanson shares. Downtime for this procedure is minimal and many patients can return to work and other activities right away. Any side effects such as redness, swelling, or tenderness should subside within a few days.
