Your facial bone structure determines your facial appearance and is therefore crucial for your overall look. As you age, your skull may slightly shrink, leading to automatic skin sagging. This is often noticeable in the temple area, which becomes hollow.
Sunken temples can give you an aged appearance and may even create the illusion of poor health. Hyaluronic acid fillers can effectively restore the hollow areas and beautifully fill the skin in the temple region. A filler treatment for sunken temples provides a fresher appearance and reduces the signs of aging. At Ageworth, we approach filler treatments with subtlety to ensure a natural-looking outcome.
At Ageworth, a filler treatment for sunken temples always begins with a personalized consultation. One of our doctors will discuss your goals, desires, and needs before the treatment. We aim to understand why you chose our clinic and what you hope to achieve. During this consultation, we may determine that other treatments, such as a brow lift or treatment of forehead wrinkles, would better suit your needs. By actively listening to you, we can develop the ideal treatment plan together. The amount of filler and the desired results will be tailored to factors such as your age and overall appearance, allowing us to reveal the best version of yourself. If you agree with the treatment plan, we can schedule the procedure, optionally right after the consultation.
Every injectable treatment starts with thorough cleansing and disinfection of the skin. Following this, the cosmetic doctor marks the injection points based on the treatment plan. The filler is then injected using a needle or a blunt cannula, depending on the area to be treated and your skin type. After the filler has been injected, the area is gently massaged to ensure proper distribution. You will receive detailed aftercare instructions to help maintain the results and enjoy a rejuvenated look for as long as possible. On average, a filler treatment for sunken temples takes 45 minutes, including the consultation.
There is no recovery period required after a filler treatment for sunken temples. You can resume your daily activities immediately following the procedure. However, you may experience some redness and sensitivity in the treated area due to the injections. In some cases, small bruises may appear, but they usually fade within a few days. During the first week after the treatment, avoid activities such as visiting the gym, using tanning beds, or going to saunas. Wait at least two weeks before seeing a beautician. UV radiation can damage the treated skin more easily, so it’s important to minimize sun exposure and always apply a sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Using a restorative and nourishing scar cream can help the skin recover faster after an injectable treatment.
Duration of Results
The results of a filler treatment are typically visible for six to twelve months. The body naturally breaks down the fillers over time. The duration of the effect varies per individual and depends on factors such as your skin type and lifestyle. If desired, a follow-up treatment can be arranged.
