Temple fillers, the understated secret tweakment
Fillers seem to be as common as moisturiser these days. According to a poll conducted by VICE, 59% of participants asked, viewed medical aesthetic treatments comparable with going to get a haircut. So, does it come as a surprise that the latest technique of injecting hyaluronic acid filler into the temple area of the face is taking the aesthetic industry by storm?
Temple fillers can be used for a number of reasons. Adding volume to the temple area to create a softer silhouette to the face, and to soften fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, resulting in an enhanced, lifted, youthful appearance. Another common concern for temple fillers is to fill any hollowing of the temple area.
We spoke with our Aesthetic Doctor and cosmetic surgeon, Dr Paul Effiong and this was his view on temple fillers…
‘Temple fillers can be a great way of softening the overall look of the face. They can add volume to the upper facial area, giving a great youthful look as the appearance of the whole face is lifted. As both women and men age, they lose volume in the face due to a lack of collagen, this can give the face a hollowing appearance which can be aging. By adding a cushion to the temple area, you can bring that volume back and give the face a more contoured and lifted look’.
Temple fillers are considered to be a relatively safe procedure; however, with any medical aesthetic treatment there are risks. It is always recommended to choose a medical aesthetic professional with plenty of experience.
Whilst it may not be one of the most common areas of filler requested, according to the Victorian cosmetics institute, it is the hidden secret to enhancing your face. with the current trends we seem to be seeing in the clinic and most recently in Vogue, could 2021 be the year of the temple filler?
