Are you noticing volume loss, sagging skin, or recesses developing on the temples? One of the facial areas that often changes with age, gravity, and collagen loss are the temples, the area on the side of the head beneath the brows. While the temples are often rubbed or stimulated in the case of headaches or pains, this is an often-forgotten concern when it comes to anti-aging solutions.
The temples and the top of the hands are the two most significant areas outside of the face and neck that show our aging. Many patients notice themselves developing fine lines, wrinkles, or other age-related skin concerns in this area.
Unfortunately, not many beauty or cosmetic treatments focus on this area, making addressing it difficult and embarrassing for some. At the Bengtson Center, we hone in on this area with services designed to help brighten and volumize the temple and brow. Board-certified plastic surgeon Brad Bengtson, MD, FACS, was voted "Best Plastic Surgeon - Grand Rapids" for nine consecutive years by the Grand Rapids Magazine. Patients can schedule a consultation with us to learn more about our facial rejuvenation procedures and how you can target areas like the temples.
What is Temple Rejuvenation?
One of the first areas on the face to lose volume typically from loss of the temporalis muscle mass and become affected by collagen and elastin loss are the temples. Ironically, it is one area that gets the least attention, and most aren’t even aware they can prevent or reverse signs of aging here.
Much like the rest of the face, however, it can respond well to cosmetic treatments that can focus on the problem to provide natural-looking results with fillers. Temple rejuvenation treatments will target the temples or the area around them, such as the brow, to help tighten, lift, or fill out the skin. You can treat recessed temples and wrinkles with different methods, including fillers or fat grafts.
To help address these concerns and balance out your appearance, Dr. Bengtson offers the highest quality cosmetic solutions available in Grand Rapids.
Our goal is to help deliver successful treatments that improve your contours and eliminate skin concerns, such as wrinkles or fine lines. Depending on the type of treatment, you may see an improvement in the skin’s elasticity and appearance in the surrounding areas, such as the brow or upper cheek area. When combined with other full-face enhancements, patients will see a lifted profile that is brighter and more youthful than before treatment, you can take years off of your appearance.
The temples are a very delicate area with a slight indent near the eyes, and they can serve as stress relief or a relaxation point when pressure is applied.
When addressing aesthetic concerns with this part of the face, it is essential to find a qualified cosmetic surgeon who makes you feel comfortable and explains all your options thoroughly. At the Bengtson Center for Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of facial rejuvenation methods to address temple concerns.
Dermal fillers are one the most common facial enhancement treatments, as they can deliver natural-looking results using ingredients found in the body naturally, like hyaluronic acid and collagen. This can activate the body’s production of tissue strengthening cells, helping to tighten any loose skin. It also fills recessed areas with a gel-like substance that volumizes the site to deliver a beautifully refined facial contour.
If you have more severe symptoms, don’t respond to other treatments, or want to see a more permanent solution to temple issues, cosmetic surgery can help you see the results you desire! Dr. Bengtson can tailor a facelift or brow lift procedure to trim away and lift excess skin.
Another injectable approach includes using your body’s fat to fill out sunken temples and smooth the skin. Fat grafts are perfect for anyone who wants to avoid any risk of allergy or foreign ingredients.
At our facility, we require all patients seeking cosmetic treatments to be in good general health and a stable weight with realistic expectations and a thorough understanding of the procedure.
Patients don’t need to have a perfect image in mind, as you can work with Dr. Bengtson to tailor an approach based on his professional opinion during a consultation. Ideal candidates include men or women who have noticed their temples appear sunken or have developed sagging, drooping skin near the eyes. Physically active individuals tend to have a higher risk of seeing this change develop in their appearance as they age. You may have a slim, disproportionate facial contour towards the upper portion of the face.
