Fillers To The Temple

What are temple fillers?

There are numerous products that make up Temple fillers, the most common and simplest classifications are the popular HA (Hyaluronic acid). We only use World leading TGA approved brands in our clinic.

How do Temple Fillers work?

Temple fillers are used to help restore volume loss in this region and help to slightly lift the brows. The temporal region is the area just above and to the sides of the outer brows. Fillers are strategically placed to help achieve volume restoration, fullness, and lifting where every injection will be based on the individual and the desired outcome of the patient.
HA fillers are dissolvable which means you can always reverse their effect if you ever change your mind.

Who should get temple fillers?

temple fillers are suitable for all genders and when strategically placed, result in either masculinization or feminization of the face.
Generally women tend to have greater bone loss in the face associated with hollowing of the temples which may augment droopiness of the brows, eye lids or skin. Some women who present with overfilled cheeks as this can lead to more prominent hollowing or narrowing of the temples.

With the use of world renowned premium grade TGA approved products, facial fillers help too:

  • Provides a more youthful appearance, helps restore volume loss, provides structure support and lift to the brows, eye lids and aspects of the mid and lower face. This appropriately helps contour the face to provide an adequate balance and facial ratio.
  • Enhancing shape and definition to the face.
  • Hyaluronic acid injected directly into the facial tissues stimulates the production of collagen.
  • Help produce a symmetrical appearance as symmetry is associated with attractiveness.


Treatment Risks

Mild Swelling at injection site


Infection- very rare

Asymmetry, one sides may be more responsive to treatment than the other

Headaches may occur, more likely to occur on first time treatment

Temporary drooping of the eyebrows or eyelids in less than 1% of cases; this may occur with anti-wrinkle treatment near these structures and may last for a few weeks and then spontaneously self resolves.

Spock brow; occurs when the outer part of the brows becomes too elevated and produces a small crease above the lateral brow when lifting them. This may occur when your injector is attempting to maximise the brow lift, however, every individual is different and some patients may strongly to this resulting in a strong lift of the outer brows. This is simply corrected with a free follow up treatment using small amount of neurotoxin at no extra charge.

Pain Relief

Most practitioners and patients prefer to have some form of pain relief. There are multiple options available for your convenience;

  • Initially, a topical numbing agent such as emla cream or lmx, is applied to the area of treatment. Common additional forms of pain relief:
  • Local anaesthesia using a nerve block is a fantastic method to achieve almost no pain at all, however this does vary based on individual. This is quite similar and sometimes used interchangeably with the term dental block. Most dermal fillers also contain local anaesthesia and hence any pain experienced during treatment generally tends to improve throughout
  • Laughing gas (also known as happy gas or Nitros oxide) is also available.
  • Applying ice to the area prior to treatment can also help reduce the pain, and applying ice after the procedure also helps reduce the swelling.

After the pain relief is applied, cleaning agents to minimise infection risk, such as alcohol swabs or Chlorhexidine is applied to the area. Dermal fillers are applied by injecting the product and inserting accordingly at different layers beneath the skin


Right After The Procedure

After treatment Some bruising, redness and swelling maybe present and self resolve over the next few days. Generally the swelling tends to provide a slightly enhanced effect due to the increased volume associated with this, which tends to disappear eventuate into a more natural appearance. Some patients tend to enjoy the swelling effect, however others may prefer the more natural effect.

Treatment Risks

Risks and side effects of Dermal fillers


Swelling in the injection region


Asymmetry. One side may have a better outcome than the other. This is often due to the fact that faces have a great degree of asymmetry and people often tend to focus more on their face after treatment where these asymmetries become more obvious to the individuals. With many patients, one side of the face tends to be healthier and respond better to treatment providing more structural support and better outcome.

Infection; rare but is always a possibility when there is any opening of the skin

Necrosis (cells death due to obstruction of a blood vessel): Rare complication. This may potentially lead to worse outcomes.

Blindness is an extremely rare outcome.
