As we age volume is lost in the face and this can become noticeable around the temples, also known as the ‘temporal hollow’. Loss of volume in this area can give a gaunt look to the face and make people appear older than they are.
How to treat the temples with dermal filler
Dermal filler is a product which occurs naturally in the body. It can be injected into the ‘temporal hollows’ using a small needle. The dermal filler reduces the depth of the temporal hollows giving fullness to the temples.
