Ageing affects everyone in unique ways, and while some get lines, wrinkles or sagging skin, others show signs of ageing differently. Over time, the levels of fat and subcutaneous tissue in the face is reduced, and this can cause a number of different effects on appearance. One common complaint of ageing is hollow temples, which is where the area around temples becomes wasted.

Hollow temples are caused by a loss of volume in the face through reduced fat combined with skin losing its elastin and collagen levels. For some, ageing can even lead to bone loss which can further the appearance of hollow temples. Having temples that are sunken by ageing can affect the overall shape of the face and also leave you looking unhealthy or gaunt.

The leading cause of hollow temples is simply ageing, as over time tissue volume is naturally lost and skin is not as tight as it used to be. As skin sags and ages, it can accentuate the appearance of hollow temples. If you are concerned about hollow temples caused by ageing, then there are treatment options available.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are non-animal based gels which are created to be nearly identical to hyaluronic acid,  which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. They are used to plump up areas where fat has been lost, and skin has aged, such as hollow temples. Dermal fillers will help to reduce the appearance of hollow temples by working with the body’s own hyaluronic acid to plump out the area.

The area around the temples can be difficult to treat as there are often a large number of surface veins as well as a temporal artery. Dermal fillers are carefully administered by our professionals to provide the best possible results for you. We recommend that anyone who is considering dermal fillers for hollow temples books in for a skincare assessment and consultation before making a decision.
