The temple is the region on each side of the face between the top of the cheekbone and start of the brow bone next to the eye. Sometimes a loss of volume in the temple region can create an unflattering shadow effect that can contribute to a dark, dreary appearance of the face and eyes and make the face appear aged. Most people do not look in the mirror and worry about their temples; however, increased volume in the temples can have a stunning effect on improving the youthful appearance of the face! Dermal fillers are effective at filling in the temples and the best one will depend on your specific case, the amount of volume loss you are experiencing. Longevity of results depends on the individual, as well as the specific facial filler used, however, most injectable filler treatments last an average of 9-12 months in this region. Most patients return to work and other daily activities right away. There may be some redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising after the treatment, but these side effects should subside within a few days.
