Dermal Fillers for Hollowed Temples
Cosmetic surgery can work wonders for your appearance, though more and more people have become interested in non-surgical treatments for anti-aging and rejuvenation. These non-invasive cosmetic procedures mean no scarring and little if any downtime. Cosmetic injectables have become particularly popular, and Jefferson Plastic Surgery offers a wide array of options.
The team at our Philadelphia, PA practice would like to consider how hollowing of the temples can lead to signs of advanced age. We’ll then go over the benefits of using dermal filler injections to treat this aesthetic problem.
How Aging Affects the Look of Your Temples
When we’re young, our faces tend to be round and ovular. Over time, we lose facial fat and bone density, which can leave the face looking thinner and much different in shape. Around the temples, this change in shape can be pronounced. It makes the forehead appear more prominent, and gives the face a more concave, skeletal appearance.
Combined with the thinner face, pronounced wrinkles, and major facial lines, hollowed temples can leave you looking years older than you would like. This might make you self-conscious about your looks. Thankfully, there are ways to address these cosmetic issues that do not involve major surgery.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic injectable that adds volume to different parts of the face. These cosmetic solutions are tested for safety and surgeons can ensure that patients will experience no allergic reactions to their fillers.
When dermal fillers are injected into the temples, they add volume to the sunken parts at the sides of the forehead. The upper portions of the face will be rounder, giving a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance the lips, cheeks, and other parts of the face.
Ideal Dermal Fillers for Hollow Temples
There are many different dermal fillers a cosmetic surgeon can choose for filling out the temples. Generally, these three hyaluronic acid-based fillers are ideal:
- Sculptra® Aesthetic
- JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel
Each of these fillers offer numerous benefits in terms of their ability to enhance and add volume to different parts of the face. We can determine the ideal dermal filler for your needs during the consultation process.
How Long Will Results Last?
The results of dermal filler injections can last for several months. This depends on the type of filler used and the patient’s circumstances. This means that for roughly half of a year, a patient’s upper face will appear fleshed out, ovular, and more youthful.
Once the dermal filler results have worn off, a repeat dermal filler treatment can be performed in order to prolong the cosmetic benefits for several more months. You and your cosmetic surgeon may decide to try a different dermal filler to see if the results are better for you.
Are Dermal Fillers the Ideal Treatment for Me?
Dermal fillers can accomplish a lot, but they are not always the most ideal treatment option. This is why the in-office consultation is so important. During your visit to our practice, we can discuss the pros and cons of various treatment options for the temples. This information along with our honest insight will help you pick the ideal option for your needs.
