What is a Temple Filler

A temple filler is a treatment to eliminate the look of sunken skin and sagging on the skin surface due to aging or genetic factors. Hyaluronic acid fillers are used to shape facial contours or to eliminate the signs of wrinkles. Loss of fat tissues in the temple area lead to sagging in the eyebrows and forehead. Due to the thin skin structure and mimic movements, that particular area is prone to wrinkles, affects eye muscles and creates sagging. As in various filler procedures, an experienced physician must perform the temple filler treatment. Cheekbone proportions are very important, therefore this procedure should be performed without disrupting the overall proportion of the face. It is recommended that only experts in this field should perform this treatment.

How Is A Temple Filler Done?

Depending on the overall condition of the dent and sagginess in the temple area, gradual filling may be recommended by the specialists. The filler shows its effect immediately after the treatment is over. Local anesthetic cream is applied to the temple area before the procedure, and after about 15-20 minutes when the effect of the cream has taken place, the area is disinfected as necessary. The filler is then injected with a needle, where the patient should not feel any pain. 

Recovery Process After A Filler

The healing process may vary in patients. For individuals who don’t have prominent lines with mimic movements, the recovery will be quite short. As the filler is applied as a thin layer, it is recommended that temple fillers be repeated for maximum results. The permanence of temple filling is approximately 1.5 years. After this period, the same procedure will be required again. This period may vary depending on the age and skin type of the temple area. Furthermore, products used during aftercare also affect the permanence of the filler. The use of the moisturizer that’s recommended by the physician after the filler is important to accelerate the healing process and to see the positive results.

While temple fillers provide a clearer appearance in facial asymmetry, this procedure also affects the forehead and eyebrows. Dents in the temples appear as sagging in the forehead and eyebrows. Fillers are also effective on facial contours,  so deterioration in these areas is also prevented.
