Restore Youthful Beauty
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, the region around the temple. 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 makes men and women alike look aged, if not unwell and tired. It is typically seen in individuals with thin skin or of an advanced age, and in younger patients that are very active physically. Runners are especially prone to this phenomenon.
Loss of volume in the temples can quickly and easily be remedied by injecting small amounts of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as Juvederm® or Restylane® deep in the temples.
Dermal filler injections are a very comfortable procedure. The lifting effect is immediate. Side effects are minimal, often manifesting as light bruising. As a 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.
A dermal filler injection 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 a trusted physician to do dermal filler injections in the temples.
