Men and women have this concern but many don’t understand it. That’s why it’s important to choose the right providers who are not simple injectors but rather facial sculptors and artists.
WHY Temple Injection with filler is amazing!
Here are the 5 reasons how Temple filler injection can help achieve:
- Eyebrow lift
- Eyelid lift
- Balanced facial head shape or no “peanut head”
- Cheek lift
- Jowls lift
Temple area is very often avoided for injection because of fear of now knowing how what and where to inject. It also has to be the right patient and the right technique as this injection should only be performed by very well-trained, experienced, and knowledgeable master injectors.
The most common type of patient who benefits greatly from a Temple filler injection is typically a very thin and active individual like a runner.
Even celebrities have this issue and one of the best examples of this is the Sarah Jessica Parker photo below.
Sunken temples make her face look longer and she almost always wears her hair down to hide this facial flaw.
How is Temple filler injected?
Dr. Avaliani is a master expert injector and safety is her top priority. Temple filler injection is her most favorite area to inject. She uses a vein finding technology of AccuVein and only injects using microcannulas for added safety for her patients. The entire procedure takes less than 10 minutes.
What type of filler is the best for Temple area injection?
Dr. Avaliani considers Sculptra Aesthetic filler as the “gold standard” for temple injections. This particular filler gradually replaces lost collagen and restores support of the outer eyebrow area, creating a filling and lifting effect all in one.
Does injection of filler into the temple area hurt?
Absolutely minimal discomfort is felt as this is done via microcannula and one should only expect a tiny one prick on each side of the cheek.
How much bruising to expect after filler injection into Temples?
Almost zero bruising is possible as there are only 2 tiny injection points.
What is the recovery after Temple area injection?
There is typically a little swelling as Sculptra Aesthetic comes with fluid needed to spread the PLLA particles in the injection. This fluid takes about 1 day to be absorbed and recommended facial massage after this injection also helps to absorb the fluid faster leading to super-fast recovery. There may be mild tenderness in the area for 1 day after the procedure, but it’s self-resolving, and taking a little Tylenol or NSAID if needed should help with the discomfort.
What are the side effects and risks of Temple area injection with fillers?
The most common side effects are tenderness, redness, swelling, and bruising. The not so common are potential nodule formation and delayed allergic reaction to the PLLA stimulant present in the Sculptra Injection. The unwanted side effects are infection and intravascular injection into a blood vessel. Dr. Avaliani is very aware and very knowledgeable with the anatomical landmarks as well as the best techniques for this area and that’s why she utilizes AccuVein and microcannula technique for this injection area.
Trust your face to an expert and an artist and always ask any and all questions which may arise before your procedure.
