Why Do We Need Fillers in the Temples?

Temple is subject to thinning and formation of undesirable dips in the face; this could, however, be masked by dermal fillers. This article will help you understand why you need temple fillers, the best fillers, the benefits of the fillers, and their cost and side effects.

Dermal fillers are injected into different face tissues to reduce wrinkles that appear with aging. Temples above your crow’s feet align with the ears and forehead. They are located on either side of the face. They lose volume due to age, chronic fat loss, or other congenital diseases that affect the face’s overall look. Clients need the temple fillers because they are nonsurgical, rejuvenate the face, soften the forehead’s sharpness and bring balance to the mid-face, which gives the entire client a general facelift. 

Best Fillers for Temples

Fillers exist in different types and formulations. According to Salti&Rauso (2015), Hyaluronic filler is the most common type used for temples due to its immediate results; the ingredient used in this filler is generally safe. When choosing the best filler, consider your requirements, longevity, components used, and the injected area. Hyaluronic acid gives consistency, effective when filling hollow temples and face rejuvenation.

Benefits of Temple Fillers

Here are the benefits of temple fillers;

Youthful Look

Aging reduces collagen production in the body, which depletes fat in the face. Temple fillers enhance the face because the hollow temples make the face round or oval making a face look more youthful. They improve the face balance without face drastic and dramatic changes. 


Temple fillers are an easy, quick, and safe way to get a facelift without going through surgery and complex procedures, consistent with Rubin et al. (2014). Fillers require less healing time, unlike surgeries that take a long to heal and could have side effects.

Natural Looking

Temple fillers bring a noticeable change in facial appearance but are still subtle. People will notice the difference because you are more likely to look younger than before. The fillers give a refreshed look without changing your entire face. 

Side Effects Are Minimal and Temporary

Like any other filler, side effects are experienced because of the injection, but the results go away after a few days. After the injection, a little downtime is required because of the swelling and redness in the injected area. The doctor will also recommend things to avoid during the recovery period.


Temple fillers are not permanent, but the result lasts longer than makeup or fillers are done in other areas like the lips (Kapoor et al., 2021). The filler results last up to 2 years, depending on the amount and type of filler you choose. The cosmetic expert should recommend the best filler for you. Fillers can also be re-touched for longer results.

Stimulation of Collagen Production

Temple fillers stimulate collagen production in the body. Collagen is responsible for making the skin more elastic and firmer. As we age, less collagen is produced in the body, making the skin sag and brows drop.

Can Be Combined

Temple fillers can be combined with other nonsurgical procedures for more rejuvenation (Loh, 2016). Combining with cheek or under-eye fillers can help achieve a smooth look through the face. A botulinum toxin injection is parable with temple fillers for wrinkles, squints, and frowns. The ant-wrinkle injection relaxes the muscles and nerves, making the wrinkles look softer during facial expressions. 

Cost of Temple Fillers

The price of temple fillers varies depending on the type of filler used and the professional. The average price of temple fillers ranges from $500 to $1000. The period the filler will last also depends on the price. The longer the stuffing stays, the more expensive it is. Most people need two rounds of injections to achieve the desired results, which is a big investment. When going for this type of filler, it is important not to look at the price before the person’s qualification. Cheap is expensive. Choose a costly but experienced medical expert to ensure safety.

Side Effects of Temple Fillers

Some side effects are a common aspect of temple fillers; they include; 

· Redness

· Swelling 

· Bruising

· Itching 

These side effects are normal and mostly occur due to the impact of the injection. These side effects last between 1 to 2 weeks. Some patients also experience serious complications such as filler leaking, infection, nodules inflammation, and blood vessel injury, which could threaten their health. If such complications occur, visit your medical expert for correction and advice.

Frequently Asked Questions about Temple Fillers

Are Temple Fillers Safe?

Fillers are generally safe because they are nonsurgical and quick. Temples are one of the most difficult places to inject because of the vessels in the area. Be sure to visit a professional expert for the filler to avoid the wrong injection technique that could lead to severe complications and blindness.

Are Temple Fillers Painful?

Temple fillers are not very painful, but the medical expert should apply numbing cream before the procedure to ease discomfort during the injection. The procedure also leads to tenderness, but it goes away with time.

Am I a Candidate for Temple Fillers?

If your temples are sunken or your brows have dropped, you could be a good candidate for temple fillers. Before having temple fillers, you should be in good health. Your medical expert should examine you to ensure your body is okay and you have no allergic reactions. Patients should inform their cosmetic doctor about their medication before getting the injection; some medications, like blood thinners, could undermine the healing. Clients with conditions such as diabetes do not qualify for this procedure. If you are a smoker, healing after the injection could take some time, and the results will likely last for a short time. 


Temple fillers are worth it if you would love to look youthful. Before the procedure, research what you are getting yourself into, the side effects, and the whole process. The injections are also expensive; plan your finances prior to the procedure. Before the process, go for consultation to examine the place and check if the doctor is certified to do the procedure to avoid complications. If you are under any medication or supplements, inform your doctor before to prevent reactions after the process.
