Temporal Hollows Treatment - Adelaide

Reverse the signs of ageing, correcting temporal hollows, by adding volume to sunken skin with facial dermal fillers.

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 on them, could use volumizing.  The goal in treating the hollow temple is to provide a better overall shape to the face and a smooth transition from the peri-orbital 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 tighten skin can accentuate the hollow temple look.


The Benefits

1. Enhanced Facial Symmetry:

Treating hollow temples can improve facial symmetry and proportions, creating a more balanced and harmonious appearance.

2. Youthful Contours:

Hollow temples can make the face appear sunken and aged. Treatment restores volume to this area, rejuvenating the overall facial profile and creating a more youthful look.

3. Improved Skin Texture:

Hollow temples can exacerbate the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the surrounding skin. Treatment helps smooth out these imperfections, resulting in a more even and youthful skin texture.

4. Customized Solutions:

Hollow temple treatments can be tailored to each individual's specific needs and desired outcomes, ensuring personalized and natural-looking results.

5. Non-Invasive Options:

Various non-invasive treatments, such as dermal fillers or fat grafting, are available to address hollow temples, offering minimal discomfort and downtime compared to surgical options.

6. Long-lasting Results:

Depending on the chosen treatment method, results can last for several months to years, providing long-term improvement in the appearance of hollow temples and overall facial aesthetics.

What causes Temporal Hollows?

Slim, active individuals often encounter temple volume loss at an earlier age compared to their less active counterparts. Factors such as sudden, significant weight loss, menopause, osteoporosis, vitamin D deficiency, inadequate protein intake, age-related growth hormone decline, and prolonged sun exposure exacerbate facial volume loss, including in the temples.

Genetics also play a significant role in influencing our facial structure. Surprisingly, many people overlook temple volume loss, focusing instead on areas like the eyes, cheeks, and mouth. However, diminished temple volume is a subtle yet significant indicator of aging. Clients typically do not request temple rejuvenation until the issue is pointed out during consultation. Restoring volume to sunken temples can yield remarkable enhancements, instantly revitalising the face for a younger, fresher appearance.

Prevention tips for Temporal Hollows

Preventing temporal hollows involves proactive measures to maintain facial volume and skin health. Firstly, maintaining a stable and healthy weight is essential, as sudden weight loss can contribute to hollowing in the temples. Additionally, protecting the skin from sun damage is crucial; wearing sunscreen daily, seeking shade, and wearing protective clothing can help prevent premature aging and volume loss. Adequate hydration and a balanced diet rich in nutrients such as vitamin D and protein support skin health and elasticity, helping to maintain facial volume.

Facial exercises can also be beneficial, as they strengthen muscles and promote circulation, contributing to overall facial firmness. Avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption is important, as these habits can accelerate skin aging and volume loss.

A consistent skincare routine, including cleansing, moisturising, and sunscreen use, helps maintain skin health and elasticity. Finally, professional treatments such as collagen-stimulating procedures can be effective in preventing or minimising temporal hollowing under the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional.
