The temple is the region on each side of the face between the top of the cheekbone and start of the brow bone next to the eye. Sometimes a loss of volume in the temple region can create an unflattering shadow effect that can contribute to a dark, dreary appearance of the face and eyes. Increased volume in the temples can have a stunning effect on improving the youthful appearance of the face.
How Do Fillers for Hollow Temples Work?
Through the use of dermal fillers, the hollow temples are strategically filled in to highlight the eyes and eliminate unflattering shadowing. Many types of dermal fillers are effective at filling in the temples and the best one will depend on you. The fillers use a substance that is naturally found in the body, hyaluronic acid, to replace lost volume and contour. Depending on your doctor’s evaluation, you may benefit more from multiple injections.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with all procedures that involve an injection through the skin, infection is possible. The most common being bruising, swelling, and tenderness.
