So, you’ve read all about fillers for plumping the lips; filler used for emphasising cheekbones; and maybe you’re even across filler being used to define the jawline.
But how much do you know about Temple Filler? Why is this a thing?
When we look at the facial structure, there are certain points from which the facial skin tends to sag more due to loss of collagen (which happens naturally with age) providing less suspension for the skin. One such area is the temple region.
Have a look at your photos over the years. You likely started out with a smooth, gentle curve from forehead to the top of your cheekbone. Now have a look in the mirror – can you see a concave where this spot dips inwards?
That’s because the collagen and fat pads beneath the skin have depleted and the skin is no longer supported and cushioned the way it used to be. With a decrease in elasticity as well, the skin doesn’t bounce back as successfully and is now less taut.
Hollowing of the temples is a subtle yet certain giveaway to the appearance of ageing. It’s often associated with gaunt or unhealthy looks, and it’s also prevalent in older people.
Temple filler is a very discreet treatment to have! It’s the kind of area that people aren’t usually consciously aware of. Yet, when it’s been treated, the result is an undeniable improvement – but also difficult to detect. Just what you want from your cosmetic enhancement!
Most commonly, a Temple Filler treatment is recommended for the purpose of providing an instant eye-lifting effect. It’s sometimes even nicknamed ‘the temple facelift’.
With the cavity at the temple plumped back outwards with precise placement of dermal filler, the skin is subtly lifted upwards and outwards. More of the eyelid can be visible and your overall eye area appears more awake and refreshed.
