Why use Dermal Fillers for the Temples?
Dermal fillers are a pretty standard go-to for patients looking to improve the look and feel of their skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hollows without undergoing invasive surgical procedures. “Fillers help to plump up the skin, restoring volume that’s lost whilr smoothing out the surface and giving it back a youthful roundness,” explains Dr. Kellie Reed, board certified Dermatologist at Sanova Dermatology. Fillers work great for smile lines, lips, cheeks and the lines around the mouth, but can be especially effective when used in the temples.
Injecting a dermal filler into the temples works much the same way as injecting it elsewhere in the face. However, the dermatologist performing the procedure must have a good working knowledge of the anatomy of the area they’re injecting and will need to inject the filler quite deeply in order to achieve the proper results. For this reason, it’s best for a patient to see a specialist if this is the kind of treatment they want.
“Hollowing of the temples is a common sign of aging or severe weight loss, and has the effect of making the face look drawn or sunken, especially if the natural structure of the face is more lean and angled,” says Dr. Reed. Using dermal fillers for the temples often shows dramatic improvement in the look of the face, making longer, leaner faces appear fuller and lifting the brows which results in a younger, more rejuvenated look.
