The temple is the region on each side of the face between the top of the cheekbone and start of the brow bone next to the eye.
Sometimes a loss of volume in the temple region can create an unflattering shadow effect that can contribute to a dark, dreary appearance of the face and eyes.
With age, as well as because of the natural structure of a persons face, hollowing of the temples results in a drooped appearance.
Not only this, but because of fat and other subcutaneous tissue loss from the temple areas, it leaves people with a look that is "wasted" or looks "unhealthy".
Dr. Ash Labib likes to provide a better overall shape to the face and a smooth transition from the peri-orbital area to the temporal hairline.
Dermal fillers are effective at filling in sunken temples. The amount of filler needed depends on the amount of volume loss you are experiencing.
Due to the drooping of the brow and a more gaunt appearance, we will ensure that by using dermal fillers, we'll fill and hydrate the area.
We use a filler that creates a smooth look and increased volume.
Across many years, Dr. Ash Labib has built back the confidence of hundreds of women and men across the UK and world-wide, through our injections for temple hollows.
By choosing Dr. Ash Labib for your treatment, you will be gaining the benefit of a highly experienced ear, nose and throat surgeon, leading cosmetic specialist and international Ambassador for Allergan. This means only the highest quality products will be used to provide a natural result, for your treatment.
After cleansing, you’ll receive a number of small injections in the muscle around your temples.
At your free consultation, we will take a medical history and discuss your areas of concern. Sometimes we may advise a combination of treatments to achieve the result you are looking for.
Within two weeks after your treatment, we will invite you back for a check-up, just to make sure you’re comfortable and are having no problems.
Being a delicate area, it will hurt a tiny bit but we do administer a topical anaesthetic to minimise discomfort.
Treatment visibility takes around a week to show, and it will take a few days before the temple hollows are reduced.
This will depend on the individual, as well as the specific facial filler used, however, most injectable filler treatments last an average of 9-12 months.
There may be some redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising after the treatment, but these side effects should subside within a few days.
