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.

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:

Ageing 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 Get Rid of Hollow Temples?

Thick dermal fillers can be carefully injected into the temple area. Avoidance of blood vessels is key. A microcannula technique can help with this. By using a blunt ended microcannula, blood vessels are pushed aside and not pierced as they would be with a needle.

Sculptra is another excellent treatment for replacing collagen and rebuilding hollow temples. This treatment fills the area instantly and once the liquid it was mixed and injected with has dispersed, you are left with calcium micro-spheres that stimulate your own collagen to grow. The results are slow-growing but long lasting.


Treatments for Hollow Temples

At Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic, we offer non-surgical treatments to fill hollow temples. We can also combine treatments for longer lasting results, while smoothing your skin.

Dermal Filler injectables add volume to hollow temples and plump up the skin as a result. This solution can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles around your temples.
