Interest in aesthetics procedures of the upper-third of the face has significantly increased. One way to rejuvenate the face and optimize facial harmony and symmetry — while maintaining facial identity — is to perform a nonsurgical, aesthetic technique called Temple Augmentation to replace natural volume in the temples, which hollow out due to loss of fat over time and create a skeletal appearance. Dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid can be injected into the skin to reduce the effects of aging on the skin.
When Dr. Hamilton uses dermal filler to subtly and meticulously replenish volume lost in her patient’s hollowed-out temples, the results include producing the optimal contour of the temples, re-establishing temporal balance and symmetry, and providing a smooth transition from the peri-orbital area to the temporal hairline — all of which create a soft, youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
Patients can combine Temple Augmentation with other Non-surgical Facial Optimization Procedures (using injectable fillers and Botox) that target other parts of the face and the neck to create a more comprehensive rejuvenation of the face and neck as well as profile balancing of the overall face. The areas that can be treated non-surgically include the lips, under-eye tear troughs, nasolabial (smile) lines, marionette lines (from the corners of the mouth to the chin), cheekbones, chin, jawline, around the mouth, nose, and neck. In addition, Surgical Facial Optimization Procedures — such as a facelift, eye lift (blepharoplasty), brow lift, and buccal fat pad reduction (from the lower-cheek regions) — can also be performed with the procedures listed above to further accentuate an individual’s natural beauty for beautiful rejuvenation of the overall face and neck.
