The temple filling is applied to regain the ideal volume to the temple area, which loses its volume and becomes hollow with the advancing age factor. Ageing or weight loss from the face area causes the temple area to narrow and fall down. This effect causes the eyebrows to appear lower and prepares the ground for an older appearance.
The procedure, also known as temporal filling, eliminates folds, fine wrinkles and volume loss in the temporal region, which is a normal consequence of the aging process. The aging process, anatomical structure or irregular and intense weight changes trigger the temples, which already resemble a pit, to collapse more, and accordingly, the bone around the eyes becomes prominent.
The perception of beauty varies according to the anatomical structure of the person and cultural differences. However, in the concept of ideal facial beauty, the upper face area should be more voluminous than the lower face area.
Temporal filling aesthetics is performed using thinner than normal needles known as cannulas and dermal filler. Before the intervention begins, the injection area is numbed with the help of anaesthetic cream. It is waited for 15-20 minutes to prevent pain and pain and for the cream to take effect. When the desired numbness is achieved, the area is disinfected. Then, the collapsed areas are filled with filler by entering from a single point with a cannula.
The application can be applied to all skin types between the ages of 18-65, regardless of men and women. It is possible to repeat the procedure or to melt and destroy the filler if it is not satisfied.
The amount of filler used in filling procedures will vary according to the size of the area, volume loss and asymmetry level. The healthiest and most accurate way to learn the amount to be used for yourself is to consult a specialist. However, in general, 1-2 ml of filler may be sufficient to provide the required volume to the temples.
Application time varies between 20-30 minutes. When the duration of the anaesthetic cream applied to the skin before the application is taken into account, the whole process is completed in 45-50 minutes.
One of the main points to be considered after the application is plenty of water consumption. Consuming plenty of water nourishes the filler and allows it to maintain the desired volume and effect for a longer period of time. As with any injection procedure, the procedure area should not be touched with water for 24 hours after temporal filling.
Otherwise, there may be a risk of infection. After the procedure, especially in the first week, very hot showers, baths, saunas and solarium activities should be avoided. Such environments with intense heat shorten the life of the filling. For this reason, staying away as much as possible contributes positively to the permanence of your filling. It is possible to return to daily routine after the procedure.
Since the temporal region is one of the areas that determine the facial symmetry, temporal filling is a procedure that requires extreme care and experience. For this reason, only having it done by experts and experienced people in the field will protect you from disappointing results and risky situations.
The redness that occurs during the procedure will disappear spontaneously within 2-3 hours. Mild swelling and bruises will disappear on their own within 2-3 days. However, such effects can be minimised by applying ice compress.
It is not recommended to perform temporal filling aesthetics for people with diabetes, pregnancy or breastfeeding, blood clotting disorder or blood thinning medication, skin infection, open wounds in the application area, allergy to fillers.
The quality and quantity of the filler used in filling procedures and the anatomical structure of the person play a positive or negative role in the duration of the procedure. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers have a longer permanence in immobile areas. Since the temporal region is both an immobile area and the injection is made in a large area, the procedure generally lasts between 12-15 months, although it varies from person to person.
The quality and quantity of the filler used in the procedure causes the price of the procedure to vary. You can contact us for temple filling price and more, and discuss all your curiosities about the subject.
