As we age, we lose volume throughout our face. This shows most prominently by the accentuation of nasolabial folds and melolabial folds. We often fill these areas for an immediate improvement in appearance; however, it’s important not to overlook other areas of volume less. The temples are an important area not to overlook.
Youthful temples are flat to slightly concave or slightly convex. As we get older and lose bone, muscle, and soft tissue mass, the temples become concave and sunken. This is especially noticeable in people in their late 30’s and early 40’s who are showing early signs of age related hollowing of their temples who also have low body fat due to diet and exercise.
Fortunately, filling the temples is a fairly easy procedure to go through. I prefer to use Radiesse since this product is particularly good for volumizing deep hollows. I also like to use Radiesse, Voluma, or Restylane Lyft for re-volumizing the cheeks. Results with Radiesse usually last 10 – 15 months and tend to last a little longer in the temples.
