By Dr. TRACY MOUNTFORD, MBBS MBCAM on Temple Filler
Temple fillers can transform your face by minimising fine lines and lifting your look. When administered strategically, they eradicate wrinkles around your eyes while smoothing and replenishing your upper face.
This advanced treatment allows us to restore volume to temple hollows that may have formed as you age. Your overall facial structure will also improve as your upper face is lifted and re-plumped.
It’s an ideal technique to shed years from your face while feeling like you’ve had a mini-facelift, without any surgery.
If you would like to learn more about temple fillers or other available treatments, here at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, in London and Buckinghamshire, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will be happy to discuss your requirements and book a consultation with one of our specialists.
A temple filler is a non-surgical injection of hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that is designed to rejuvenate the temple area. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in our skin that helps keep it plump and hydrated. It has the power to retain over 1,000 times its own weight in water, making it a fantastic moisturiser. It’s also clinically proven to improve natural collagen production while maintaining skin elasticity.
A temple filler boosts the skin’s natural supply of this powerful substance to fill fine lines and wrinkles while giving our face a more lifted and refreshed appearance.
Temple fillers can make your face look more youthful by replenishing your upper face with supportive lost volume. Temples help to define and shape our faces when they are plump, rounded and smooth. Full temples cushion our face from the skull bone, giving us a smoothly convex forehead that keeps our faces looking plump and full.
But as we age, we lose fat, bone, muscle and collagen in the temple areas, giving us a ‘sunken’ or ‘caved-in’ look between our brows and cheeks. This loss of structural support can also cause our skin to sag and wrinkle, thereby worsening the appearance of crow’s feet and intensifying the visible signs of ageing.
Using temple fillers can correct volume loss in this area by restoring moisture to hollowed-out areas while boosting collagen production to tighten and reform the skin.
Temple fillers can also visibly lift the face without the need for a surgical facelift. By filling fine lines with moisture, and restoring volume to sunken areas, the upper face is given a more rounded and shapely finish. This serves to lift surrounding structures like the cheeks and the side of the brow while lessening changes to the lower half of the face.
With drooping skin replenished, and upper face wrinkles filled, we can lift years from our faces with minimal effort and maximum results.
Temple fillers are suitable for anyone who wants to restore their natural face shape while minimising the look of temple-area wrinkles.
Volume loss in the temples occurs in everyone as we age, but it is often more noticeable for people in older age groups.
Slim individuals are also more vulnerable to sagging skin and volume loss in the temple areas because they have less fatty tissues in this area to begin with. Temple fillers are therefore particularly beneficial for people who fit into these categories. But everyone is welcome to request the procedure.
In all cases, our trained practitioners will listen to your personal needs before recommending the best temple filler treatment to suit you.
Temple filler injections are administered to targeted temporal areas by our expertly trained medical practitioners. The skillful placement of temple filler injections will re-plump the target area to bring back lost shape ensuring a more youthful look.
In certain circumstances, a patient may benefit from a combination filler treatment that brings back definition and structure to adjacent areas like the forehead, lateral cheeks or under-eye area. Temple fillers can also be combined with anti-wrinkle muscle relaxants or skin tightening procedures like Ultherapy to maximise potential results.
Our trained clinicians will advise upon the benefits of this approach if needed.
The vast majority of our patients find this treatment to be more comfortable than they expected. The filler itself contains a local anaesthetic to minimise pain, and patients liken the feeling of a filler injection to a series of light pinpricks.
Our expert medical practitioners are highly skilled and precise to avoid as much discomfort as possible, and a numbing cream can be used on more sensitive patients.
At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we only use premium FDA-approved fillers that are naturally biodegradable. The best fillers for temples are those with a thicker consistency, as this area loses volume on several different fronts due to the combined depletion of bone, muscle, collagen stores and fat cells over time.
Temple fillers will immediately beautify and lift your face as soon as they have been applied. The treatment is also known for its long-lasting effects, with a typical patient experiencing positive results from 9 to 12 months after their treatment.
There is little to no downtime and you can resume normal activities right away. The quick 30-minute treatment can occasionally result in some slight swelling in some patients. However, this can be easily disguised with makeup. No allergy tests are required for the treatment as hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in your skin.
Temple filler treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic start from £555.
