Why choose Barstable Medical Clinic for your temple filler?
Temple fillers are an often overlooked treatment due to the gradual ageing of this area. However, when carried out by a medical professional, temple filler treatment can dramatically improve wrinkles and ageing around the eyes. The treatment smoothes the skin, giving the appearance of a ‘mini face lift’ by stretching and lifting the skin around the cheeks and upper area of the eye.

About temple fillers
Many people tend to find that their temporal areas hollow out as they get older, giving rise to a ‘peanut-shaped face’ that’s associated with ageing. It is however possible to remedy this using a hyaluronic acid filler. This acts like an air cushion, supporting tissues that have lost their elasticity and volume, restoring a more youthful appearance.
The temporal area is very delicate, and so it’s essential that this treatment is carried out by a medically qualified professional, such as the team at Barstable Medical Clinic.
Dr Ciara wrote an in-depth article about temple fillers for the Aesthetics Journal, where she advises her professional colleagues on the the anatomical considerations and best injection techniques for treating this complex area.
Temple fillers - frequently asked questions
It is unusual for patients to attend requesting temple filler, as this is a commonly overlooked part of the face. However, our experienced doctors often advise to treat this area, when completing a facial assessment, to reverse the signs of ageing.
As we age, the temple area recedes and the bones around the eye (orbital bones) also begin to resorb or degrade. As a result the skin and tissues around the eye and eyebrow sag, due to this loss of bony structure. By filling the temple you can subtly lift the eyebrow as well as revolumising an area that is a tell-tale sign of aging.

However for some patients, their individual temporal anatomy dictates that we use a cannula to administer the filler. Feel free to ask us more about the differences in these methods when you attend for your free consultation.
Bruising is the most common side effect, due to the thinness of the temple skin and/or swelling. In addition, some patients also describe the injected area as being tender for some hours after the procedure.
