Temple Volume – The aesthetic pitfall that no one really talks about
Aesthetic symmetry is one of those things that you never really think about until you need to. Temples are a great example of this. You just don’t think about them, unless you’re feeling a headache there, but over time they can actually lose volume for a number of reasons and this will greatly affect your appearance.
Today we’re going to explain that in a little more detail, so that you know what happens when temple volume isn’t ideal, as well as what kind of legacy and modern treatment options are available and what you can expect from them!
If something has seemed a little ‘off’ when you look in the mirror, it might just be that a Temple Volume treatment is just what the doctor ordered – read on and we’ll tell you all about it!
Temple volume – it’s all about balance
Temples are one of those facial areas that we really don’t think about much. You might rub them sometimes in stress, touch them with your thumb and finger in a ‘thinking’ pose, but beyond interactions like this you really don’t have much reason to think about them.
The thing is, your face is a work of art that encompasses an expected symmetry, and like other spots on your face, temples can change in volume and the effects can be seen in one or more of the areas of your face. We’ll list them below and elaborate a little on each:
- The brow
- Your Cheeks
- The temporal hollow
As we get older, the outside areas of the brow experience a slow, measured resorption in the bone in the area of your temples. It’s subtle, as it’s a very slow process, but it tends to add a bit more angular of a look at the brow, rather than smooth, youthful curve.
When temples ‘hollow’ out a little, skin is loosened overall in the face, and this can add to the sagging of the cheeks. You wouldn’t think that this would be a factor, but any changes in your face will impact overall symmetry in one or sometimes a dozen little ways.
The Temporal hollow
A final effect is sometimes called a ‘sunken temple’, but this is where you are seeing pronounced hollows in your temples that can give them sort of a ‘gaunt’ appearance. This happens to everyone over time and even if you aren’t older, there are scenarios that can produce this effect and it’s one of the most noticeable changes that can happen on your face.
Losing volume in your temples – why does it happen?
Losing volume at the temples may occur for a number of reasons, although the first and most common reason is simply getting older. As we age, bone and soft tissues slowly lose a little volume, and we also develop pockets of fat that will move in response to this. While these fatty pockets are very small, when they move it creates a more pronounced effect, such as saggy cheeks, hollow temples, folds in the skin, and the telltale wrinkling that we associate with getting older.
It’s not just age, however, that can cause changes in volume. Illness can cause it, whether you get better or not. A new fitness plan where you end up losing a bit of weight through diet and exercise reduces a little volume in the face over time, and folks who’ve made healthful changes can become frustrated when the temples develop a slight or pronounced hollow.
This is sometimes referred to as ‘peanut head’, as the concavity produced in the temples causes a symmetric imbalance that is similar to a peanut’s contours and concavities. Thankfully, in this day and age, you don’t have to accept this scenario at ALL – you’ve got some options and we’ll detail them in the next section!
What kind of treatments are available for temple volume?
Treating temple volume imbalances is actually quite easy with modern medicine. Two of the most popular treatment options for this are dermal fillers and the more modern PDO thread treatments. In this section, we’ll tell you about both so that you know a little about what the procedures are like, recovery time, potential caveats, and how long you can expect the results to last.
This will help you to make an informed decision if you would like your own temple volume treatments and give you an idea of how quick and easy you can make unwanted ‘hollow temple’ or ‘peanut head’ aesthetic challenges a thing of the past. Let’s take a look and see what you think!
Dermal fillers are one of the oldest treatments for temple volume issues and the premise is simple, but effective – by placing filler materials, such as hyaluronic acid into place at different spots on your face, sagging can be reduced, the skin can be tightened, and for the duration until the filler dissolves this will provide a marked improvement.
Dermal fillers may be inserted in the temporal hollow, for instance, to fill that area, or placed in the temple area just above the cheeks, to smoothen and enhance the curvature and symmetry in the areas of the forehead, cheeks, and temples. Dermal fillers also allow for reshaping of the brow, as well, so that wherever it is needed, the overall face may be reshaped and made more youthful.
Typically a dermal filler session is fairly quick, taking just under half an hour, but this will vary from patient to patient depending on how much work is required. Recovery is fast – typically within 24 to 48 hours – and the results last for as long as the filler you’ve selected, which could be months or years depending on the half-life of the filler.
PDO thread treatment
The most popular treatment for temple volume issues these days is a PDO thread treatment and it’s effective enough that some practitioners are referring to PDO threads as the ‘new injectable’. So, how does it work? Well, PDO thread lifts are a non-surgical type of facelift that takes about half an hour and this earned it the nickname of the ‘lunchtime lift’.
Dissolvable PDO threads are put into place in the face and instead of relying on a filler material, they pull and lift so that what you have is your natural face, but tighter, and as a result, more youthful in appearance.
That’s not all, though. PDO threads produce active effects while they are in place and slowly dissolving. They increase the production of collagen and elastin in your skin the whole time that they are there, rather like some sort of ‘time release’ skin vitamins. At the subdermal layer, they also help to encourage natural lipolysis, so that those pesky fatty pockets we develop over time can be slowly and surely reduced or in some cases, essentially erased.
PDO lift treatments can definitely help with the temples and other areas of your face, so to give you a better idea of PDO thread lift options, here are 3 of the most popular methods, starting with the temples, and we’ll tell you a little about each one below:
- Temple and brow PDO lift
- Jowls and lower face PDO lift
- PDO Jawline and neck lift
Temple and brow PDO lift
At the temples we have fat pads that help to support the facial structure and when bone resorption occurs and as fat lessens, you can end up with hollows at the temples. With a PDO thread treatment, collagen-stimulating PDO threads are placed at the brow and temples, so that the upper portion of the face is lifted and youthful contours may be restored. Instead of adding a filler, the area is tightened and the improved collagen production helps to restore the skin naturally. When necessary, filler treatments may even be used in conjunction with a lift of this type, but that all depends on what is needed and what your doctor recommends.
The process is very quick – usually done in a matter of minutes – and the results are instantaneous. Recovery time is about 24 hours, although you shouldn’t do any heavy lifting for 2 to weeks, depending on what your doctor says. You can see the procedure being performed here if you like to see how it’s done. It’s quick, effective, and the results may last up to 2 years, if you are using quality PDO threads such as V Soft Lift.
Jowls and lower face PDO lift
With this type of PDO lift, PDO threads are inserted around the cheek area in angles so that they create a supportive mesh to lift and hold, while also stimulating collagen production in the skin and lipolysis to help dissolve fats that have developed through the years. Like the previous procedure, recovery is 24 hours with no heavy lifting for 2 – 3 weeks, provided that you’ve used superior threads (and we’ll tell you more about these shortly so that you may ask for them for your own procedure).
PDO Jawline and neck lift
For this treatment, PDO threads are inserted at the neckline, in order to help tighten and support the skin so that your jawline and neck look more youthful, without the sagging that can develop from changes in health, exercise and diet regimens, or simply the passage of time. The procedure and recovery is the same with all PDO thread treatments – in and out in less time than most lunch breaks and an overnight rest, with no heavy listing for a few weeks for good measure.
The PDO thread you choose is important – and V Soft Lift PDO threads are the BEST!
For a temple volume treatment, 6 V Soft lift PDO threads are employed with a 20g weight and 40mm thickness. This is important to know, because other PDO threads don’t have the tensile strength of V Soft, so additional threads may be required if you use them. V Soft is produced by the largest PDO thread manufacturer in the world and its tensile strength is 10 – 20 times what you get with other threads on the market. Other advantages to choosing V Soft lift for your procedure include:
- Longer lasting – Results lasting as long as 24 months, compared to 1 or 1.5 years with inferior threads.
- Enhanced collagen production – V Soft threads provide the MOST collagen production of any threads on the market and you’ll get that benefit longer, since these robust threads outlast the others.
- Fat reduction – At the subdermal layer, V Soft threads also help stimulate lipolysis, to help remove excess fats underneath the skin and this lasts until they dissolve.
- Less threads required – The enhanced tensile strength of V Soft lift threads, means you’ll need less threads for the procedure, which in turn means a faster and more comfortable recovery.
These are just a few examples of the perks and you can find out more with V Soft’s injectors manual. There’s a reason that V Soft is the PDO thread choice for clinics around the world – it’s the strongest, longest-lasting, produces the most collagen, and frankly, it’s simply the best on the market and you deserve nothing less than the BEST!
Some closing words
Today we’ve talked about temple volume and how it affects the symmetry of your face, as well as what kind of treatments are available to remediate any hollows or sagging as a result of loosened skin or bone density changes in the temple area. While dermal fillers will work, the most popular treatment today is a PDO thread lift for the Temple and Brow and for good reason.
With this type of treatment, rather than relying on fillers being placed by the doctor, your face is simply tightened so that youthful aesthetics are restored and while the dissolvable PDO threads are in place, they’ll be producing collagen to enhance your skin like time-released vitamins.
Whatever method you choose, temple volume issues aren’t something that anyone needs to suffer from anymore, so be sure to research filler and especially PDO thread options on your own to see what you think.
In less time than a lunch break, you can turn back time and those temple volume troubles will be well behind that new, youthful you!
