Dermal fillers can be used to restore volume to many areas of the face including cheeks, chin, lips and more. However, we often forget about the temples! Volume loss in the temples occur as we age because of the loss of bone, fat as well collagen in the skin which is vital for firmness and elasticity. This leads to a hollowed-out appearance as well as sagging in the upper face. Temple fillers and injections can reverse volume loss and restore the natural roundness of the face while providing a mini facelift leading to a more youthful appearance.
What are temple fillers used for?
Temples are small flat areas at the edges of brows. Plump temples give us a smooth appearance and youthful look. But as we age, we tend to slowly lose the volume in our temples.
Temples are often a forgotten area when it comes to dermal fillers. However, the loss of volume in the temples can negatively affect the rest of the face. Therefore, temple hollows can also be treated with dermal fillers in a non-surgical way.
The purpose of temple fillers is to rejuvenate and recontour this area of our face. Also, temple fillers help with restoring the loss of volume and skin elasticity. Rejuvenated temples also impact the surrounding face structures, so with temple fillers you can restore face roundness and get a more youthful appearance.
Benefits of temple fillers
Temple fillers are a relatively safe and non-invasive procedure with numerous benefits. Here’s what you can expect from temple fillers:
- Reduced temple wrinkles by adding volume to the temple area
- Restored loss of volume and structural support in the temple area by filling in hollow temples
- Improved skin firmness providing a more youthful look
- Quick procedure with minimum downtime
- Long-lasting effects
Who’s an ideal candidate for temple fillers?
Some individuals are more vulnerable to the loss of volume and structure in temples than others. Usually, an ideal candidate for temple fillers is a person that lacks the fatty tissues in the temple area that serve as a structural support. Also, if a person has lost a lot of weight, that loss of volume can be visible on their temples, which makes them a great candidate for temple fillers.
Typically, the loss of structure in the temples becomes more noticeable as we age, which is also the case with all other areas of the face.
What to expect in our clinic?
At Misk Beauty, we always offer consultations prior to any treatment. After checking your medical history and ruling out the possibilities of allergies to dermal fillers, we then assess if temple fillers are the right solution to your skin condition or not. After that, we propose a custom treatment with the right dosage and targeted areas.

Temple filler procedure
The procedure itself is non-invasive, quick, and usually painless. Prior to the treatment, the targeted area is cleansed to remove makeup or any bacteria. We also use numbing cream to the target area to minimise any discomfort. We use sterile syringes and gently apply the syringe to the target area. A brief pinching sensation may occur when the needle goes in. And finally, after the procedure, a gentle massage of the area may be needed to reduce the possibility of creating bumps.
After the treatment, it’s important not to sleep on your temples or put any pressure on them in the first few days after the treatment. Avoid touching your temples until all discomfort or swelling goes away. Also, avoid intense physical exercise for around 48 hours after the procedure.
Side effects and risks
Common side effects are swelling, bruising, redness, mild pain and itching. In very rare cases, more serious side effects can occur, which can require an urgent examination by a doctor.
Frequently asked questions
What is the cost of temple fillers?
At Misk Beauty, our temple filler treatments start at $599 for the first ml, then $499 for any extra ml. The initial consultation is $100 which is deducted of the total if you proceed with any of the treatment options.
What causes temples to hollow?
As we age, the temporal region slowly loses fat tissue as the structural support. Also, our skin loses collagen as we age, which has a role in keeping our skin firm and smooth. That all leads to sagging skin and hollow temples.
How long does filler in the temple last?
In general, the results of temple fillers can last between 9 to 12 months. The accurate number depends on the metabolism of the patient, aftercare, lifestyle, and type of dermal filler used.
