Temporal Volume Loss Restoration in Ottawa
Several aging changes occur in the upper third of the faces.
- Forehead wrinkles appear.
- Deep lines between the brows develop (resulting in a constant angry or intense look).
- Brows descent or drop.
- Eyelashes become thinner and shorter.
- Fine lines around the eyes (Crow's feet) are seen.
- Sunken eyes and deeper tear troughs make us look tired even when we are not.
We can address all of these aging issues with a combination of Botox treatments, Dermal Filler treatments and Latisse eyelash growth treatment for a full upper face rejuvenation.
One of the areas that has been neglected in the past was the lost of volume on each side of the upper third of face i.e. the temple areas. This is referred to as Temporal volume loss or Temporal hollowness.
More than any of the other signs of aging, loss of volume in temples not only make woman and men older looking but also unwell or sickly.
Loss of volume in the temples is typically seen in individual with thin skin, advanced age and also in younger patients that are very active physically. Runners are especially prone to this phenomenon.
Loss of volume in the temples can be quickly and easily remedied by injecting small amounts of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane deep in the temples.
Injection of dermal filler such as Restylane or Juvederm in the temples is very comfortable procedure. The lifting effect is immediate. Side effects are usually minimal and involve mainly bruising.
And as an added bonus, when we add volume to the temple, this also tends to accentuate the brow, creating a brow lift, as the dermal filler provides more structure to the underlying skin.
This is a more delicate procedure and should only be done by a physician with advanced training with dermal fillers. Dr. Tosoni is nationally recognized as one of the industry's most experienced physicians in medical aesthetics. She is a certified advanced injector of Botox® Cosmetics and Dermal Fillers and as such is trusted physician to do dermal filler injections in the temples.
