Importance of temples in facial rejuvenation:

Friday, January 11th, 2013

One of the most over neglected and under appreciated parts of the face when it comes to facial rejuvenation are the temples. As we age, the temples tend to narrow and hollow out, shifting the balance of the face downward towards the mouth and lower cheeks. This gives our cheeks the appearance of it drooping and sagging and changes the harmony of our face. Injecting either filler or fat into the temples is a quick and simple way to give the face a more youthful harmony. Carefully examine your old photos when you were younger and pay close attention to the width of the temples compared to now. It is possible to pick up subtle differences even in your 20's.

Temple rejuvenation usually goes hand in hand with both upper eyelid and brow rejuvenation as well as with cheek rejuvenation. It is important to keep these structures well balanced and in harmony with one another otherwise treatments can look unnatural and fake.
