Temple Filler

The temples round out the face and play a vital role in the overall appearance of the eyes and face shape. As the face and skin lose volume, the temples can indent, making the upper face narrow. It is a subtle but impactful difference, making the eyes and face appear older. To restore a more youthful appearance, temple filler injections can be used to address sunken temples, a treatment available at Dr. Sedgh Facial Plastic Surgery in West Hollywood, CA.

Youthful temples have fat under the skin that keeps them plump. With age, it is common to lose facial fat and the skin loses collagen and volume, which can allow the temples to indent on the sides of the face. Dermal fillers are an excellent option for replacing lost facial volume, including sunken temples.

The most popular dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance in the body that collects and retains moisture. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid quickly plumps the area. The molecules act like sponges, expanding and creating volume. Over time, the hyaluronic acid breaks down and is eliminated naturally, but it can last for several months or more.

Eliminate Sunken Temples

Temple filler treatment can have a wonderful rejuvenating effect on the eyes, brows and overall youthfulness of the face. Once the temple volume is restored, the upper face is slightly wider and the skin around the eyes and brow is tightened. This can have a lifting effect for the outside of the eyes and brows while smoothing some lines and wrinkles.

Temple filler injections only take about 15-20 minutes to perform. If a hyaluronic acid filler is used, the effects will be almost instantaneous. There is no downtime needed after temple filler injections, and most patients have minimal side effects. The most common are slight swelling or redness at the injection site.
