Temple augmentation with dermal filler –
Temple lift also known as temple augmentation can help stop the loss of volume in the temple and achieve a more balanced and youthful appearance. Although temples are a critical area for volume restoration in ageing faces, they are not as obvious as other facial folds or wrinkles and maybe sometimes be overlooked by the patient. However, with dermal fillers, augmentation of the temples can alter the upper and mid-face and stop loss of volume which results in a skinny, wasted appearance.
When discussing treatment options for managing volume loss in the face, Stacey recommends considering the potential benefit of temporal fossa augmentation with dermal fillers.
What filler do we recommend for temple augmentations?
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure itself takes about 20 minutes.
How does temple lift work?
Belotero Intense® dermal filler is made of a material called hyaluronic acid, or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it plumps and fills in hollow temples, allowing immediate and smooth correction.
How soon can I expect results? How long the results last?
Instantly! and individual results may vary, but Belotero Intense® temple augmentation may last up to one year.
Does it hurt?
As with all needle injections, there can be some discomfort associated with the procedure. Stacey can discuss ways to manage any discomfort during the procedure.
How is the treatment performed?
Belotero Intense® dermal filler is injected into the skin in a simple, quick procedure using a fine micro-cannula. It can even be done over your lunch hour.
Is temple augmentation safe?
Belotero Intense® dermal filler is approved in New Zealand and Australia, and has undergone testing in clinical studies to prove its safety for use in the human body.
Are there any side effects?
Just like any injection, you may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising or tenderness at the injection site.
How long is the recovery time?
There is very little to no downtime associated with a Belotero Intense® temple augmentation procedure. In fact, most patients return to their normal daily activities right after their visit. Every patient is unique, so be sure to discuss your plans during your consultation.
