Concerned about Sunken Temples?

Our modern treatments for Sunken Temples are designed to not only restore lost volume but also rejuvenate your facial appearance.

What are Sunken Temples?

As we age, fat depletion and loss of volume under the skin occur in all areas of the face, and the temples are no exception. This can lead to a hollow look as the bones of the skull appear more pronounced. Sunken temples are most noticeable in lean individuals with naturally low body fat, high cheekbones, and in older people.

Hollow temples should be assessed alongside other areas of volume loss due to ageing to achieve aesthetic harmony across the face.

Several treatments are available to address Sunken Temples

Dermal fillers are an excellent way to add volume lost in the temples, providing a natural-looking result by softening the contours of the face. The safest types are made from hyaluronic acid, a non-permanent substance naturally found in the body. Hyaluronic acid filler is suitable for people with busy lives because it has lower risk and less downtime, but not everyone will be suitable for treatment, so a consultation with Dr Sabika is essential.

By consulting with Dr. Sabika Karim at Skin Medical, you can explore the best options for restoring volume and achieving a more youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

All of the questions you need to ask about Sunken Temples?

Why do my temples look sunken?

Sunken temples often result from a natural loss of fat and muscle volume in the face as we age. Other factors can include significant weight loss, dehydration, or certain medical conditions that lead to the depletion of facial tissue.

What do sunken temples indicate?

Sunken temples typically indicate a loss of volume due to ageing or weight loss. They can also be a sign of dehydration or underlying health issues that cause tissue wasting. It is essential to consult with a medical professional to rule out any serious medical conditions.

What is the best treatment for sunken temples?

The best treatment for sunken temples involves restoring lost volume through dermal filler injections, such as hyaluronic acid fillers. These fillers provide immediate results, improving facial symmetry and giving a more youthful appearance. Other options include fat transfer procedures and collagen-stimulating treatments like Sculptra.

Are sunken temples normal?

Yes, sunken temples are a normal part of the ageing process for many individuals. As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, leading to a reduction in volume and firmness. While common, treatments are available to address this concern and restore a fuller, more youthful look.
