Temple hollows are one of the less commonly talked about signs of ageing; mainly because our eyes are usually drawn to lines and wrinkles caused by volume loss, rather than the volume loss itself. Temple hollowing is the loss of volume from your temples (the area between the corner of your eyes and hairline). With age, or sometimes due to the natural structure of your face, there is a hollowing of the temples which can result in a dropping of the brow and you may feel like you have developed a more gaunt appearance. Dermal fillers can be the perfect solution to smooth out the wrinkles and provide you with the volume required to lift the area for a natural, more lifted look.
How does it work?
Hollow Temples can be treated with dermal fillers, so as to re-establish the natural volume of your temples and lift the eyebrows. Dermal filler is a substance that is injected into the dermis of your skin in order to fill and hydrate the area. Dermal fillers can have different structures and consistencies that make them more suitable for treating different areas. For example, when treating your temples, we use a filler that is smooth and volumising.
What results can I expect?
Your temples will appear smoother and more lifted, if a hollowing temple is an area of concern, your skilled injector can treat the area so you can see an enhancement to the structure of your face however this will very much depend on your treatment plan and what it is you want to achieve from the treatment.
What is the recovery period like?
Most possible side effects are related to the action of injecting your skin, not the product itself. These include: redness, minor swelling, itching, tenderness around the injection site and potential lumps in the treated area. These can be reduced by massage and our skilled Doctor and Nurse injectors are specifically trained in practices which keep these side effects to a minimum.
Will I need a consultation?
Every new client coming to the clinic for lip filler is required to have a consultation with the Doctor or nurse injector they will be receiving treatment from. This is a very important part of the process as it allows the injector to build a picture of exactly what it is you want to achieve. You can find more information about our consultations on our injector consultation page.
Before and Afters
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
Temple filler treatments start from £325. The total cost of the treatment depends on the type and amount of filler used, this will be determined by your treatment plan. We have a range of finance options which can be discussed at your consultation.
How long does it take?
We advise you to allow 1 hour for treatment, this gives us 30 minutes for LMX numbing cream to take affect and 30 minutes to administer the filler.
Is the procedure painful?
We all have different tolerance levels of pain so some people experience minor discomfort while others are more sensitive however we do offer a numbing cream for all our clients before treatment to minimise the discomfort. Once this is applied you will be able to wait in our private pre treatment lounge until it has taken effect.
What filler products do you use?
We use the Juvederm range, your Doctor or Nurse practitioner will select the best product or combination of products in the range for your treatment. Juvederm is the number one most popular filler with Doctor and Nurse injectors and is praised for its natural looking results. If you are used to something different you can mention this at your consultation and our Doctor and Nurse injectors will be able to discuss the different end results with you.
How long will the filler last?
We recommend treatment intervals of 6 months although results can last longer than this depending on factors including the area of the filler treatment, your lifestyle and aftercare.
How qualified are your injectors?
Five of our dermal filler injectors are fully qualified Doctors and we have a sixth injector who is a qualified Nurse. All six injectors receive frequent dedicated training sessions in the latest techniques in dermal filler injections including sessions dedicated to achieving natural results in individual areas of the face.
Will I have a follow up?
Yes, all our clients receive a free of charge follow up consultation 4 weeks after treatment, this will be with the same Doctor or Nurse injector you were treated with. Should you have concerns about your treatment our front of house team will work with you to bring your consultation forward.
What happens if something goes wrong?
All of our Doctor and Nurse injectors are fully qualified and trained to identify complications which prevent medical emergencies from happening. Should a complication arise during or after your treatment our team are on hand and have the facilities and equipment to be able to provide you with emergency medical assistance.
Will the results look natural?
Many of our clients come to us wanting to make small alterations rather than dramatic changes, we dedicate a lot of resources into making sure we can achieve natural results for our clients including dedicated training sessions for our Doctor and Nurse injectors into methods to achieve natural results and fine details along with careful product selection ensuring we use filler products which are specifically designed to produce a natural look.
Why don’t you use collagen?
The filler products we use are based on hyaluronic acid rather than collagen. Hyaluronic acid contains naturally hydrating properties, these promote a faster healing time than collagen. In addition to this, results from Hyaluronic acid based fillers can be seen immediately and tend to last longer before being reabsorbed into the body. Hyaluronic acid also promotes the natural production of collagen so collagen production will increase naturally rather than artificially.
Can filler be removed?
Yes, we provide a treatment called Hyalase, which is designed to fully dissolve filler. The treatment costs £200 and can be administered by one of our Doctor injectors. Please contact us for more information.
Do I have to be over 18?
Yes, we do not treat anyone under the age of 18 for filler treatment as we have a duty of care to make sure the client is making an informed decision.
How much is a consultation?
You will be asked to pay a £50 deposit to secure an initial consultation with one of our Doctor or Nurse injectors. This deposit is fully redeemable against any of our injectable treatments.
Am I suitable for filler treatment?
During your consultation the Doctor or Nurse injector will ask you questions to find out exactly what it is you are looking to achieve from filler treatment both physically and emotionally, if the injector thinks a different treatment would be more effective at getting the results you want, they will discuss this with you and make their recommendations in your treatment plan. They will also ask you relevant questions about your medical history, as our fillers are based on Hyaluronic acid, there are very few health conditions which make you not suitable for treatment but a limited number of conditions such as certain types of diabetes may have an affect on your treatment plan.
