Temple Filler Scottsdale

Wrinkles are often considered one of the first signs of aging, with volume loss occurring in various areas of the face. This can make a face look tired and older than it is, especially on thin or athletic people.

The temple area is one of the most prone areas to facial thinning. It is located on the sides of the forehead near the brows and might grow hollow as one age. This might cause premature brow sagging and an aged appearance. Thankfully, dermal fillers can add volume in the temples for a more natural, youthful appearance. Injections by Megan offer the best temple filler Scottsdale has to offer.

What are Temple Filler Services?

Temple filler is a non-surgical procedure that may be used to fill up hollow or deformed temples. Temple filler is sometimes referred to as temporal filler. Dermal filler injections address signs of aging or achieve a particular look, like making the eyebrows, eyelids, or dark circles under the eyes less noticeable.


Temple filler treatment

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved several dermal fillers, but none have been explicitly approved for use in the temples. Dermal fillers are used to enhance the appearance of the temples. Reduced volume temples may be filled up using various procedures, including fat transfer, hyaluronic acid fillers, Sculptra, and Radiesse. The ideal choice of temple filler is determined by several factors, including the quality of your skin, the degree to which the temples have lost volume, any existing medical concerns, and personal preferences. They will go through these options during a consultation with the doctor or nurse injector.

Dermal Fillers in your Temples

Dermal filler injections used to address reduced volume in the temples include:

  1. Hyaluronic acid fillers
  2. Sculptra temple filler
  3. Radiesse temple filler
  4. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Injectable hyaluronic acid fillers, also known as HA fillers, are the most popular fillers used for the temple. Juvéderm and Restylane are the two most common HA fillers widely used for temple fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers are safe and may be used for neck lifts and facelifts for the under-eyelids, lips, and cheeks.

The American Board Of Cosmetic Surgery states that hyaluronic acid fillers are temporary and may last anywhere from three to 24 months, depending on the type. While this may seem a disadvantage to some individuals, hyaluronic acid fillers are an excellent starting point for temple fillers. Unlike Sculptra or Radiesse, they are also reversible.

With this procedure, the patient has more control over their appearance and can try out different looks when they get their temple filler refilled. Injectable hyaluronic acid temple fillers that are commonly used include:


Hyaluronic acid is a naturally produced chemical in the body. Juvéderm’s active hyaluronic acid component adds volume to the facial tissue to achieve its desired results by increasing the synthesis of connective tissue, which plumps the skin (collagen). Hyaluronic acid and collagen synthesis decrease with the advancement of age. This makes facial skin that is already sagging and wrinkled look worse.

Unlike other hyaluronic gel products, which have a granular texture, Juvéderm products have a smooth gel. Hyaluronic acid works by retaining water and providing cushioning at the injection site. This gives the skin a temporary volume boost and makes it look smooth. Most people need many treatments to get the best results.

The Juvéderm range of products is designed to address specific demands based on the treatment area of the face and the desired volume increase. The Hylacross technology, used in the manufacture of Juvéderm products, enables a smooth, malleable gel.

Juvéderm Voluma

Juvéderm Voluma belongs to the Juvéderm product family. It has a specialized formulation product commonly used to add volume to the temples. When injected, Voluma is somewhat firmer than Juvéderm. The results of this treatment may last up to two years.

Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft is one of the most recent FDA-approved dermal fillers on the market that is not only used for temple rejuvenation but also gives much-needed support to facial volume. Restylane Lyft gives patients both volume and lifts, restoring a smooth and naturally youthful appearance to the mid-facial area. Restylane Lyft is considered to be an aesthetic surgery product.

Restylane Defyne

Restylane Defyne is a dermal filler injected under the skin (facial). Once injected, it helps to smooth out “laugh lines,” which are wrinkles and folds that form at the sides of the nose and continue down into the corners of your mouth.

Restylane contour

Restylane Contour is a game-changer that allows professional injectors in Scottsdale, like Megan Taplin, RN, to add facial contouring and harmonization to her already well-known and highly regarded facial injection procedures.

Restylane Contour is a non-surgical gel implant (dermal filler) injected into targeted facial tissue areas. It is composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid produced by a Streptococcal bacterium species. Restylane Contour gives an improved temple and midface fullness by temporarily adding volume.

Belotero Volume

Belotero is a dermal filler product used to restore volume, smooth out wrinkles, and rejuvenate the facial look by injecting a unique filler formula into the skin’s subdermal layers. Users can benefit from a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment for age-related skin concerns with this product. The main ingredient in this filler is hyaluronic acid, a chemical found naturally in the skin and is known for helping skin cells retain moisture.

That hyaluronic acid naturally boosts collagen formation is one of the most interesting facts about this product and why this treatment is so successful. When hyaluronic acid is injected right into the skin, it makes the skin surface softer, smoother, and more hydrated.


Teosyal is an extensive range of non-animal fillers made from hyaluronic acid that can be broken down over time. These products are used to redefine the facial lines and correct any visible signs of aging. The variety of products in the Teosyal line makes it possible for doctors to personalize treatments for each patient. The injections can be done anywhere on the face, including the temples, lips, chin, cheeks, around the eyes, neck, forehead, and décolletage.

Teosyal helps keep the face fresh and hydrated while providing structural support and a more natural appearance for the skin during facial movement. The effectiveness of Teosyal products comes from their ability to maintain and/or restore the skin’s naturally occurring HA content and characteristics.

Scupltra temple Filler

Sculptra is an injectable medical cosmetic procedure used to address facial lines, wrinkles, and folds for a more natural, youthful appearance, as defined by the drugs website. Due to its long-lasting effect, Sculptra is quickly replacing other fillers as many patients’ preferred option. This filler is composed mainly of Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic version of lactic acid. The unique thing about this filler is that it works in a way that gives a smooth, natural-looking result over time.

How does Sculptra work?

Sculptra works differently, unlike other fillers. It contains Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which naturally stimulates the body to produce more collagen. Collagen synthesis helps the skin to thicken in volume over time. This gradually helps to regain the importance of facial lines and wrinkles. It is injected into the skin to help reduce wrinkles and lines on the face, giving the skin a smoother, more natural, youthful look. After therapy, patients may notice some early benefits, but it might take many months to notice the full results of the treatment. The typical course of treatment is three injections spaced out over three to four months.


Radiesse is a cosmetic skin treatment that may be used for hand fillers and facelifts. It stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen, which fills in wrinkles over time and promotes the development of new collagen in the skin.

This treatment targets areas of facial fat loss and the lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. Additionally, it addresses the backs of the hands, where volume has been reduced. Since calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) stimulates collagen formation, it is a very effective non-surgical facelift procedure that delivers remarkably natural-looking results. Radiesse is often used for patients between the ages of 35 and 60, and the results usually last approximately 15 months.

Dermal Filler Treatment Results

A study by Reuters showed that years after the end of treatment, more than 80% of patients were happy with the results. To keep the results, the cosmetic surgeon will repeat the treatment, changing the amount and number of procedures as needed. Most people can see the effects of dermal fillers immediately, and the final results can be visible three to five days after all the swelling goes down.

For Scottsdale dermal filler patients getting their first fillers, hyaluronic acid fillers are often recommended since they are the most temporary treatment lasting between six and eighteen months. Certain HA fillers, like Juvéderm Voluma, are designed to last longer and are often only used in specific facial areas, including the temples.

Since the body doesn’t absorb synthetic fillers, they often last long. Dermal fillers may be a solution for the appropriate patient, but they will need to be prepared to commit to results that won’t disappear for years; therefore, it is advised to seek treatment from a skilled, experienced Scottsdale doctor or a nurse injector whose aesthetic style is appreciated. To achieve a more desirable natural result, other non-surgical procedures may be done.

Cheek and Temple Filler

Temple fillers are frequently used with other non-surgical cosmetic treatments to achieve a more natural and long-lasting facial rejuvenation. In addition to temple fillers, one might decide to add fillers to areas like the cheekbones, brow, or beneath the eyes, which also lose volume with age.

A smooth appearance may be achieved by injecting dermal fillers into all places that gradually lose volume. Even product distribution between the temples and cheeks is critical for a more natural look.

Filler in Temples to Lift Eyes

Botox may also be used with temple fillers to address additional signs of facial aging. Botox is injected into the outer edge of the brow to lift it gently. Botox raises the upper eyelid by gently lifting the brow and shows a little bit of eyelid skin. Botox for men is a temporary treatment for hooded eyelids.

Botox is a neuromodulator that reduces dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles caused by squinting, smiling, frowning, or other facial expressions. Botox for men relaxes the communication between the nerves and muscles where it is administered, resulting in softer wrinkles during natural facial expressions.

In addition to addressing wrinkles, Botox for men may also be used for a non-surgical brow lift. This may improve the results of the injection of temple fillers.

Facelift non-surgical Rhinoplasty

In addition to temple fillers and Botox, a patient may want a facelift non-surgical Rhinoplasty. According to ResearchGate publications, Facelift non-surgical Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure in which dermal fillers are used to change the shape of the nose temporarily. It’s a solution for individuals who don’t want to get cosmetic surgery. The doctor may be able to complete the treatment in just one doctor’s visit. Typically, the effects last up to six months.

Temple Filler Before and After

Temple injections with dermal filler can refresh and rejuvenate the overall facial appearance by:

  • Creating a smooth, symmetrical face shape reduces the depth of the temple depression.
  • Supporting the eyebrow will give the brow a lift.
  • By providing structural support, wrinkling around the outer forehead region may be reduced.

All these possible benefits will lead to a face that looks more natural, younger, less tired, and symmetrical.

In addition to filling the temple, wrinkle relaxants and cheek fillers are often used to create a beautiful facial structure, lift the brow, and smooth wrinkles. This is called harmonious facial rejuvenation.

Dermal Filler Temple Recovery Time

The following factors influence temple recovery time:

  • The number of areas injected by the doctor.
  • The type of filler used.
  • The amount of filler used.
  • The patient’s overall health.

Most Scottsdale dermal filler patients may resume their normal activities immediately after receiving dermal filler injections. But the doctor or nurse injector may advise taking a day or two off from strenuous exercise or physical activity.

Skin Treatment Temple Filler Risks and Side Effects

The common side effects include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Discoloration
  • Firmness
  • Itching
  • Lumps or bumps
  • Minor pain
  • Pain or tenderness
  • Redness
  • Risk of infection

All of these side effects may go away in two to four weeks. Unprofessional treatment, such as injecting Juvéderm into a blood vessel, causes severe side effects such as scarring, visual problems, blindness, and stroke. So, it’s essential to pick a doctor carefully and ensure they have the required training, certification, and license.

The Cost of Temple Filler in Scottsdale

The cost of injectable temple fillers in Scottsdale might vary based on the doctor’s qualifications, the patient’s location, and the number of syringes required. However, the cost per milliliter varies from $500 to $1,500. This non-surgical procedure is usually not covered by health insurance because it is a cosmetic treatment.


All procedures around the temples should be cautiously handled due to the area’s delicate epidermis and lack of connective or fatty tissues. If not done appropriately, there is a risk of disrupting blood flow, loss of sensation, and possibly blindness. When performed by a highly experienced specialist, these risks are decreased tremendously. At Injections By Megan, temple fillers are administered by a certified aesthetic nurse injector with extensive knowledge of anatomy around the temple.
