Temple fillers and forehead fillers could solve a multitude of concerns brought about by ageing.
A youthful face has a lot of fullness, and most of this could be due to the structure of the temporal region and forehead area. There is not a lot of volume within the temple and ageing means you could lose more volume. Your forehead can also lose volume and lines and wrinkles may appear deeper and more visible there, making you look older and more stressed.
If you have been affected by this, you may be interested to know that forehead fillers and temple fillers can be used to great effect on these issues, restoring the shape of your face, and allowing you to regain a youthful, more refreshed look.
Temple fillers and forehead fillers consist of injections of clear hyaluronic acid gel in small amounts. These are injected into your temporal areas or forehead, adding volume to the area, giving a smooth appearance to the skin while reducing lines, restoring shape and giving contour to the face.
Temple fillers, when administered by a medically trained, experienced professional, can reduce lines on your forehead and reduce the hollows that ageing can bring to your temples. This type of filler treatment can reduce any shadowing and ageing effects, smooth out the skin, and leave you looking more youthful and vibrant.
There could be a variety of reasons that people are unhappy with the shape of their face and the look of their skin as they age. Whether the temples are sunken in, casting shadows on the face and causing drooping, or there are lines and wrinkles on the forehead that make us look sad, worried or angry, all these issues, as well as lines around the nose and mouth, the shape of the cheeks and more could be addressed with temple fillers.

The forehead filler treatment involves the very precise injection of dermal fillers (hyaluronic acid-based injection) into targeted areas of the forehead. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body, in high concentrations in the skin, which adds volume, hydrates the skin and refreshes the forehead.
The treatment is useful to restore the youthful curvature of the forehead and helps to reduce hollows and shadows (which can make the face look more masculine).
For many patients, forehead fillers are a suitable treatment to improve facial symmetry. Dermal fillers are administered to treat scarring and/or to balance areas of asymmetry, adding volume where desired to specific areas. It is a useful treatment option to contour the forehead, to counter the causes of a receding hairline, bony ridges, sloped/concave foreheads, hollowing caused by ageing, or genetics.

During the ageing process, we all lose crucial elements of the skin – its ‘building blocks’ – for example, collagen and fat. These prevent the skin from sagging or becoming loose, which in turn causes wrinkles and fine lines.
Over time, our skin becomes thinner, and lines and wrinkles appear. Bones and fat pads shrink, which accelerates the development of folds and deep wrinkles.
Temple fillers replaces the lost fat, whilst also helping to restore your skin to its former youthful appearance.
Dermal filler is carefully injected into different layers of the skin. The type of filler and the depth of the injection depends on the patient’s concerns and needs. Thicker dermal fillers are typically used for deep folds and wrinkles. A smoother filler is used to plump fine lines and wrinkles.
The ageing process occurs quicker and in a more pronounced fashion in some people. For example, volume loss can particularly affect slimmer people, with less volume. It can be noticeable in athletic people more than in others. Prior to any treatment, you will have an initial consultation and analysis for suitability.
Most people find temple filler treatments to be a comfortable treatment, with less discomfort than other filler treatments.
After your temple dermal filler treatment, the effects will be immediately obvious. Some patients experience swelling, but this ought to resolve within 2-3 days. However, some patients experience swelling for up to 2 weeks. If you have any concerns, please do contact our friendly team.
Temple filler results are expected to last between 9-18 months, and varies from person to person.
The most important point to note is that what may be right for someone, might not be right for you. There is no one size fits all for dermal filler treatments. However, if you would like to discuss your suitability, your concerns with wrinkles, blemishes, improving volume and texture, then one of our expert clinicians will be happy to assess and advise if a dermal filler treatment is right for you.
You will always start with an initial consultation, where you will discuss your concerns with your doctor. They will assess your appearance and concerns, in particular the temple and surrounding areas to assess the most suitable treatment for you, and whether temple fillers will help to achieve your goal.
During the treatment, your doctor will administer small amounts of dermal filler into precise locations on your temples. You can hold a mirror during the treatment to see the results as they take place, and seek reassurance throughout.
The procedure will take approximately 30 minutes.
After any treatment, you will be provided with detailed aftercare instructions specific to your treatment. This will enable you to know what to expect, and what not to do after your treatment. Typically, with most dermal fillers, you should avoid:
To help reduce any potential bruising, you can apply ice and arnica cream to any bruising. It may be beneficial for you to take arnica tablets a day before your treatment and everyday for a week after your treatment.
During your consultation, we will advise you on the best treatments and products for you to use at home.
