Filling Hollow Temples With Fillers

Facial hollowing is one of the most distressing signs of ageing for many people, and can be aggravated by sudden or severe weight loss. Due to this, many patients report that they look more tired and drawn than they actually feel.

Men and women who come to Lynnette Allen, NP-C to treat signs of facial aging and volume loss at the temples aren't always aware how much their hollow temples are adding years to their appearance.

The temples form a framework that supports a healthy, youthful face shape. However, some men and women lose significant facial volume as they age, and this may include the temples. When the fat in the temples shrinks, the face can take on a gaunt appearance which we associate with old age. Lynnette Allen, NP-C uses several different fillers at her Long Island, New York practice to treat this area.

Sunken Temples and the Aging Face

The temple is naturally concave, but this indentation is covered by a fat pad that creates a smooth contour and youthful face shape. With age, the fat diminishes, leaving some people with a sunken hollow at the temple, which makes the skull bones appear more pronounced. This "skeletal" appearance is a hallmark of old age, and can make you look stark and unhealthy, even if you feel vibrant and energetic

Lynnette Allen, NP-C uses fillers for filling the temple area that are well-suited for deeper injections and which the results are long lasting. She takes special care to make the injections in the correct plane, under the muscle, close to the skull, and away from the larger blood vessels. This minimizes the chance of complications and creates a superior, predictable and consistent result.

Temple injections can restore softness and shape to the temples, for a face that looks healthier and more youthful.

What other treatments are commonly paired with Loss of Volume?

Since hollows at the temples are associated with significant volume loss, it's not uncommon for patients to opt for volume enhancement in the cheeks, the nasolabial folds or under the eyes for a more complete facial rejuvenation.

Understanding it’s not the filler, it’s the Filler

Choosing a skilled cosmetic filler injector is key to achieving natural results.  There are very few providers in the New York or Long Island area, who have Lynnette Allen’s level of skill coupled with the artistic eye needed for sculpting facial contours with fillers, and even fewer who regularly perform filler injections to the temples. She has dedicated herself to the mastery of dermal fillers – both the art and the science. She also offers innovative injection techniques, which allow for a more refined control and artistic delivery of the filler on her part. This in turn allows for a more comfortable experience with faster recovery along with minimal bruising and swelling for you.
