As we age, our temples naturally start to hollow out. In time, this can lead to an unbalanced facial structure and a less youthful appearance. Temple filler can bring back balance to our facial structure.
What does putting filler in temples do?
Fortunately, temple filler gives us a non surgical way to restore lost volume. At Dr.Derme, we use dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid for temple filler. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in our skin and can hydrate and plump the area treated.
What is the best filler for the temple area?
Firstly, we use medium thickness dermal fillers for the temples. The amount of fillers needed varies from person to person depending on the degree of volume loss in that area. Generally, a single syringe of dermal filler should be enough to restore lost volume in the temples. However, if the area is severely hollowed out then multiple syringes may be required. If there are other areas of concern such as brow drooping then again more dermal filler will be required.
Is Temple Filler Painful?
We use a numbing cream before performing any procedure to ensure maximum comfort for you. During the procedure, most find that they experience very little discomfort due to the precise technique used by our doctors when injecting dermal fillers. In addition, we use only premium quality dermal fillers that contain lidocaine - an anaesthetic - further aiding patient comfort during treatment.
Will filler in temples lift jowls?
By replacing the volume lost in the temples using expert techniques we can lift the lower parts of your face including the jowls. By adding filler to support the brows we can create a brow lift and refine the shape.
Temple filler can help bring back harmony to your face. The best way to know whether or not you need temple filler is by booking a consultation with our doctor. We can assess your face and recommend the best treatment for the results you want.

Frequently asked questions
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to add volume to the lips. The most common type of filler is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the human body that helps keep skin hydrated and plump. When HA is injected it adds volume and definition to give them a youthful look.
How painful are dermal fillers?
The pain level will vary depending on the type of dermal filler being used and the area being treated, but dermal fillers generally cause some minor discomfort. Most patients describe dermal fillers as just uncomfortable, with a burning or biting sensation when the filler is injected into the tissue. Fortunately, we offer numbing creams or local anesthetics, which can help minimize any discomfort experienced during dermal fillers.
Are there any risks involved?
Like any medical procedure, there are some risks associated with dermal filler injections—namely bruising, swelling, redness and pain at the injection site. However, these side effects should subside within a few days after treatment. Lastly, it's essential that you find a reputable cosmetic doctor who has experience administering dermal fillers so that you get optimal results with minimal risk involved. Dr Thuva Amuthan trains many healthcare professional across the country in his expert techniques.
What to avoid after dermal fillers?
After dermal fillers treatment, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your doctor. Generally, it is best to AVOID:
- Touching the area or applying any make up for at least 3 hours
- Hot drinks or enviroments such as baths, steam or sauna for at least a day
- Drinking alcohol or strenuous exercise for the first day
- direct sun exposure for the following week
- Additionally, it is advised not to massage or apply pressure to the injection site in order to give the filler enough time to settle and achieve desired effects.
How can you make the reults last?
Dermal fillers are a great way to look energetic and refreshed, but many people want to make their dermal fillers last as long as possible. One of the best things you can do to extend the life of dermal fillers is to take preventative measures, such as:
- staying hydrated
- wearing sunscreen
- avoiding cigarettes and excessive alcohol.
You should also visit your doctor for regular follow-up appointments. This will help them monitor the dermal filler’s progress and provide assistance if there are any issues. Additionally, it is important to set realistic expectations about results and timelines as it does take time for dermal fillers to fully set in. Taking all these steps will enable dermal fillers to last longer than originally anticipated.
