Dermal fillers have a wide range of uses to create a more youthful appearance. Temple fillers are one option that patients may overlook, however they can help create a natural-looking, rejuvenated appearance. Dr. Chetty offers temple fillers using injectable products such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Belotero or Teosyal RHA at Cerulean Medical Institute in Kelowna, BC to help patients achieve a balanced and youthful look. Below are just some of the top temple filler benefits.


1. Create a more youthful appearance

The primary benefit of temple fillers is that the procedure yields a more youthful appearance. Over time with ageing, the fat in the face is naturally depleted and redistributed. As you age, volume in areas like the temples and cheeks shifts to the lower part of the face. By adding volume back to the temples, a youthful appearance can be restored.


2. Achieve facelift results without surgery

Volume loss at the temples can cause the brows to sag, resulting in a tired, angry, sad or simply older appearance. Temple fillers can create a “liquid facelift” effect, signaling lifting the brows and creating a rejuvenated appearance. To complete your nonsurgical facelift, Dr. Chetty may suggest fillers in other areas of the face, such as the cheeks, under eye area, jawline and chin as well. Botox can also be used to soften lines around the newly lifted brows, complementing the results of your temple fillers.


3. Fill out sunken areas and improve face shape

Temple fillers can improve the balance of your overall face shape. Patients who receive temple fillers achieve a more oval or heart-shaped face, which is often sought-after in women. Men who choose the procedure can also achieve a stronger brow area and improved, masculine face shape. The beauty of temple fillers is not to change your appearance drastically but adding some volume to the temple area can subtly improve the overall shape of your face for a natural but enhanced appearance.  By carefully balancing the temples with the cheekbone area using fillers, Dr. Chetty can create a natural, symmetrical, and harmonious look.


4. Temple fillers are natural looking and subtle

While the stigma surrounding cosmetic procedures is diminishing, many people still want to be discreet about the treatments they have. The results of temple fillers cause a noticeable rejuvenation, but are still subtle enough that nobody would immediately know you’ve had a procedure. Patients who receive temple fillers often find that their friends, coworkers, or family members notice that they look refreshed, more awake, or more youthful, but don’t immediately assume they’ve had a cosmetic procedure.  Instead, those around you may assume that you look refreshed because you are getting more sleep and are healthier and happier overall.


5. Side effects are minimal and temporary

Like all injectable treatments, temple fillers cause very mild, temporary side effects and require no downtime. After receiving your injections, you will likely see some swelling and redness. These side effects quickly dissipate, and results are immediately noticeable. Following your appointment, you can immediately return to your normal routine, including work or school. However, it is typically advised that you avoid strenuous activity and exercise for about 24 hours to prevent bruising at the injection site.  We also recommend that you avoid drinking alcohol for about 1 week after your injections to avoid slowing the healing process.


6. Temple fillers are long-lasting

Temple fillers are not permanent, but the results are long-lasting. Some filler options have results that last for up to two years or longer. After the filler has broken down, you can choose to have maintenance injections to keep up your results.  During your consultation, Dr. Chetty will recommend the dermal filler product that will work best for you and explain how long that product’s results typically last. From there, you can choose to schedule maintenance injections as needed.


7. Temple fillers help stimulate your own collagen production

Temple fillers help to reflate lost temporal volume improving and the peri-ocular anatomical structures including lifting of the brows, eyelids and softening dark under eye circles.  Temples fillers help to promote neocollagenesis or production of your own collagen which ensuring long lasting natural looking results


8. Temple Fillers can be combined with other non-surgical procedures for further facial enhancement

Patients frequently combine temple fillers with other non-surgical cosmetic procedures for more complete and holistic rejuvenation.

In addition to adding fillers to the temples, you can choose to add filler to areas such as the cheeks or under-eyes, which similarly lose volume as you age. By injecting dermal fillers into all of the areas that lose volume over time, you can achieve a more seamless look. One important consideration with temple fillers is a smooth, even distribution of the product between the temples and cheekbones for a natural appearance. For this reason, Dr. Chetty may recommend adding some fillers to the cheeks to ensure your results look natural.

Dermal fillers are also frequently injected near the mouth to smooth nasolabial folds or smoker’s lines. Nasolabial folds are also known as parentheses lines, and are the wrinkles that run from the nose to the mouth. Smoker’s lines are the fine lines that form around the mouth especially if you move your lips. Dermal fillers can gently boost volume in these areas to smooth lines.

Botox can also be paired with temple fillers to address other signs of aging in the upper part of the face. Botox is a neuromodulator which works to reduce dynamic wrinkles, or the wrinkles that form when you squint, smile, frown, or make other facial expressions. Botox relaxes the communication between the nerves and muscles where it is injected, meaning that your wrinkles are softer during natural facial expressions. Dr. Chetty employs modern and advanced techniques to create lift and natural looking outcomes and avoiding a “frozen” look. In addition to treating wrinkles, Botox can be used for a non-surgical brow lift. This can enhance the results of your temple fillers.


Am I A Candidate for Temple Fillers?

If you notice that your temples appear hollow or sunken, you can likely benefit from temple fillers. Another common sign that you may benefit from temple fillers is a drooping brow and sagging eyelids.

Before choosing to have dermal fillers of any kind, you should be in good overall health. It’s also best if you are a nonsmoker, as smoking can slow healing after an injection and causes aging signs like wrinkles, which can affect your results. Before receiving temple filler injections, you should avoid taking blood-thinning medications including aspirin or certain supplements. Some patients with severe allergies may also be poor candidates for dermal filler injections. Before you receive temple fillers, Dr. Chetty will review your health history and recommend whether or not fillers are a safe and suitable option for you.


What Fillers Are Used for the Temples Reflation?

Many dermal fillers can be used as temple fillers. At Cerulean Medical Institute, we offer a wide range of fillers to suit each patient’s needs. Some options include:

Belotero Volume, another hyaluronic acid filler which is often used to increase volume in the temples as well as the jawline, cheeks, chin, nose, or lips. On average, Belotero Volume lasts about two years.

Juvéderm Voluma, a specialized formula that is most commonly used to add volume to the cheeks. Voluma has a slightly firmer consistency when injected compared to Juvéderm. Results can last up to two years.

Juvéderm, a popular hyaluronic acid based dermal filler that is useful in many areas of the face because of its smooth, gel-like consistency. Juvéderm fillers typically last about six months to two years, depending on the injection site and your metabolism.

Radiesse, which uses calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) to stimulate collagen production. This makes it a highly effective non-surgical facelift solution with incredibly natural-looking results. On average, Radiesse results last for about 15 months.

Teosyal is another hyaluronic acid filler which can be used for the temples. In particular, the Teosyal Ultra Deep, Teosyal Ultimate or RHA4formulas are recommended for this area. Teosyal injections typically last about one to two years.
