The temple area can become hollow due to the loss of fat and the wasting away of the subcutaneous muscles over time.
The temple area can be filled with injections of hyaluronic acid and tissue inducers (calcium hydroxyapatite) such as Radiesse. By filling the temple area, we can gently lift the tail of the eyebrow, which consequently opens up the expression. This is the area where the Charpy fat pad lies. Here, an accurate injection of hyaluronic acid will lift the deep facial structures and camouflage the underlying bones.
The expression is rejuvenated and the facial curves look more harmonious, less bony. In the temple area, Doctor James Schinazi performs hyaluronic acid injections superficially with a cannula or deeply with a needle. The skin on the temples is often thin and is covered with many veins and nerves, so the injections must be extremely precise. Also, for a comprehensive anti-aging approach that addresses the whole face, we can combine them with injections into the cheekbones and tear trough, to give a gentle lifting effect in the middle and lower thirds of the face. Please note that, following these injections, we can often see the pattern of blood vessels under the skin on the temples (veins and venules) as the deep facial structures have been lifted. This is completely harmless and rarely lasts more than 4 to 5 days.
The fee charged for this type of treatment depends on the amount of product injected but starts at 350 euros per blister of hyaluronic acid.
