Temporal hollow correction and augmentation in Chicago
What is temporal hollow correction and how is it done?
Temporal hollowness and indentation usually show up at the sides of your head just in front of your hairline when you reach your 40s or 50s. As you run your fingers down the sides of your head in front of your ears you might feel an indentation. This area is referred to as the “temporal hollow” or the “temple.” Some patients think it gives them a skeletal, aged look. This can be easily corrected by injecting the temples with dermal fillers, which can consist of hyaluronic acid, bio-stimulating volumizers like Sculptra or Radiesse, micro-fat injections, or PRP (platelet rich plasma). Any of these products are intended to correct and volumize the indentation and unsightly scalloping of the temporal hollowness.
How long does using facial filler to correct temporal hollowness take?
The procedure usually takes anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes.
How soon can results be noticed?
You’ll notice results immediately, and depending on the filler used, results can continue to improve in the weeks following the procedure.
How many sessions are required to correct temporal hollowness?
Different fillers can last different amounts of time, but for normal visible results, most patients treat the temples about twice per year.
