Loss of volume in the temples can have a profound impact on the appearance of the face, making us appear much older. Injecting dermal filler into the temples can replace that lost volume and minimise the appearance of ageing. In fact, filler in the temples can dramatically improve the appearance of lines around the eyes by giving a mini-facelift that “stretches and lifts” the skin at the outside and upper edges of the eyes.
What product do we use for Temple Filler?
The product we use for Temple Filler is Juvéderm Voluma, which is a FDA-approved injectable gel filler that is designed to instantly add volume beneath the skin’s surface, which provides lift and contour to temple area. Juvéderm Voluma provides natural-looking and long-lasting results.
Are there side effects?
Recovery is usually rapid and treatment results are normally visible immediately. Regular activities can resume straight away, with many patients going back to work on the same day. However slight tenderness, bruising or swelling can occur for the first couple of days. Ice can be applied immediately after treatment to minimize these effects. Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen or advil for 2 days after treatment – AVOID them for 1 week prior to treatment. Avoid excessive exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
How long will it last?
Treatment results will vary with the individual; however most patients will enjoy refreshed and younger look for an average of 12 months.
