Why using Temple Fillers ?
Hollow temples are a cardinal sign of ageing but fortunately it is easy to address this issue with temple fillers.
On the two pictures below it is easy to see that the correction with temple fillers reopen the eye by giving support to the eyebrow. Also, the shadow area has disappeared and now the temple is convex. This means a much better light reflection. The whole area looks much healthier and younger.
It is possible to use different types of fillers for the temple area:
- Hyaluronic acid (such as Juvederm)
- Plla (Sculptra)
Fat can give good results but it is definitely not very practical to use, the harvesting and preparation is difficult and the re-injection is a bit traumatic meaning lot of swelling, bruising and downtime for the patient.
For these reasons we use either sculptra or juvederm. The choice is a question of strategy and costs.
The temple area is sometimes very hollow and deep and a large volume may be required for the correction. It is also common to have different areas ( temples, mid-face, chin) to correct during the same session. For these patients we recommend to use Sculptra because it will allow more work than a simple syringe of juvederm.
On the other hand, when the volume needed is not very important and when more superficial work is needed ( to lift the eyebrow for instance) we will recommend a Juvederm filler such as Voluma or Volift.
A topical anaesthesia with Emla cream is used for a better comfort, less bleeding and a more precise correction.
