The benefits of temple fillers
As we age, our smile and frown lines go from dynamic, to static. Meaning our skin isn’t bouncing back after the movement. Temple filler is a great solution for people wanting to smooth or prevent smile lines, and can be administered in a way so that natural movement is still possible.
Dr Scott Allison recommends temple fillers to lift and enhance the area above your browline and out towards the hairline. With proven results, we can discuss our anti-wrinkle and anti-aging treatments. Temple fillers are one option!
How do temple fillers work?
In the span of your life, losing volume in the temples occurs naturally resulting in a hollow and aged appearance. By improving volume in the temples of your face, you’ll see a significant improvement in the overall shape of your face.
Your temples are located on the sides of the face just behind the eyes, and temple fillers are used to lift and enhance the area above your browline and out towards the hairline.
Minimally invasive and non-surgical, the injections use hyaluronic acid to improve the production of collagen in your skin.
Should I use Botox or temple fillers?
Botox contains purified bacteria that freezes the muscles. When injected into the skin, it minimises the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions.
Dermal fillers, however, usually contain hyaluronic acid that promotes the production of collagen in the skin. They also add a plumper, fuller appearance, which is why they’re used in lip and cheek injections.
As you age, your body reduces collagen production leading to the loss of bony structure in the face. Your skin begins to sag and then folds form on your temples. Both botox and dermal fillers are used for different reasons. We use temple fillers to restore volume and stimulate the production of collagen.
What goes into the procedure of Temple Fillers?
When you come in for a consultation, we examine your skin, after which we plan a tailored procedure that will help you achieve your skin goals.
During the procedure, we inject dermal fillers into the skin. This promotes the production of collagen to reduce the appearance of fine lines on your temples. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring sugar-like substance in the skin. By adding this to the dermal layers of your skin, we’re encouraging collagen production.
By improving the volume in the temples of your face, we’re also able to add structure to the cheek and create a smoother appearance between the forehead, temple and cheeks. This is also known as ‘Ogee Curve’ and is known to give you a more youthful appearance.
Just adding fillers in the temples isn’t enough to achieve this curve. Based on your individual face structure, we normally recommend adding fillers around the brow area, on the forehead and the temples. This provides uniformity and gives you a fresh look.
How long do the results last?
The results of this procedure lasts from 9 to 12 months. Simple aftercare can ensure the prolonged effectiveness of temple fillers. Most patients start seeing an impactful difference within no time.
Aftercare for Temple Fillers?
Side effects are rare but can include swelling, redness and bruising at the injection site. You might experience some discomfort after getting temple fillers but this settles very quickly. Like with other procedures, we recommend staying away from exercise for 24 hours. We also encourage staying away from makeup for as long as possible.
Getting rid of forehead lines is a benefit in itself! However, temple fillers are completely safe with little to no risks. Aftercare is easy and doesn’t require you to go out of your way to manage your skin.
