As we age, we lose volume in our temples resulting in a hollow and aged appearance. This can often be exacerbated by focusing on volume replacement in the cheeks. If overlooked, it can result in the appearance of a wider forehead, hollow temples and full cheeks, which may be undesirable for the patient. Replacing volume in the temples provides a significant improvement in the overall shape of the face and a more youthful appearance.
What we can Enhance
The temporal hollow
By treating the depression in this area we can improve the hollowing in the temple area to give a more youthful outcome.
Shape of the brow
As we age, that outside portion of the brow can fall away due to the resorption of bone in the temple area which is one of the subtle tell-tale signs of ageing. This can be improved and the brow supported by treating this area.
Sagging of the cheek area
By replacing volume to the temple area above the cheek we are able to add structure to the cheek and create a smoother curve between the forehead, temple and cheek. This is known as the ‘Ogee Curve’ and is considered to give a more youthful and beautiful appearance to the face.
