Dermal fillers are safe, gel-like injectable substances that smooth creases, fine lines, and wrinkles to rejuvenate your skin and add volume and fullness to your face. Dermal fillers can be used to enhance your lips, fill your cheeks, straighten out your jawline, soften grooves underneath your eyes, and many other cosmetic alterations to reduce the visible effects of aging. Dermal fillers do not fill in wrinkles but rather add volume to the desired area in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in your skin. One popular use for dermal fillers is to correct the appearance of hollow temples.
Over time, the temple area of the face can tend to lose volume and fat which can lead to a sunken in, hollow appearance. Fortunately, dermal fillers can be made with different formulas and solutions to target various areas and issues, even hollow temples. If this is something you are looking to have done, we recommend a dermal filler like hyaluronic acid to help restore volume to the temple and brow area.
The lifespan and overall effectiveness of your dermal filler treatment depend on your physiological makeup which is why we recommend consulting your doctor before beginning treatment. Most dermal fillers last between six and 12 months before they are absorbed back into the skin and the results start to fade. Typically, most FDA-approved dermal fillers are also infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during and after treatment. Injecting cosmetic dermal fillers only takes a short amount of time to complete, and most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.
