Hollow Temples

Treatments to fill hollow temples


Hollow Temples

As we age, fat and other subcutaneous tissue is lost from the temple areas leaving us with hollow temples. There is even bone loss. This causes a wasted or unhealthy look. Most people are surprised when we point out that this area could be used for them. The goal in treating the hollow temple is to provide a better overall shape to the face and a smooth transition from the periorbital area to the temporal hairline. The temples are the essential hanger for the entire face. Hollow temples often result in excessive skin folds in the eye lids.

Some people call a face with hollow temples the peanut-head. This area is difficult to treat due to large amounts of surface veins as well as a temporal artery running across it. Surgery is not particularly effective as the tightening skin can accentuate the hollow temple look.

Most common causes of hollow temples:

Aging is the leading cause of hollow temples. Over time we experience tissue volume loss and elasticity. As our skin ages and sags, the appearance of hollow temples accentuates. 


How to Improve Hollow Temples?

To improve hollow temples you need to replace collagen to enhance fullness. Thick dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid fillers or Radiesse are injected into your temple area to support your rejuvenation goals.

Sculptra is another excellent treatment for replacing collagen and rebuilding hollow temples. This treatment fills the area instantly. However the water gets metabolized within a few hours and you are left with calcium micro-spheres evenly distributed to stimulate your own collagen to grow. The results are slow-growing but long lasting.
