Temple FILLER IN TULSA
As we age, our temples lose volume, creating a hollow appearance or "peanut head". The roundness of the upper face we see in our mid 20's becomes depleted as we approach our 40's. Temple fillers are used to replace this volume, creating a more youthful look. It also helps lift the brow and the lower face. We are all unique, and your distinct anatomy will play a role in determining if you are a candidate for temple filler, as well as the type of filler and technique used. At Soul, we specialize in delivering results that meet your goals and enhance the natural beauty within you.
Temple Filler: CONSULTATION & TREATMENT
Before treatment, you will undergo a thorough consultation to determine if you are a candidate for temple filler, or if another service is a better fit. If you are a candidate for temple filler and time allows, we can complete treatment on the day of your consultation. Typically, a separate appointment is scheduled for treatment. The entire process takes an hour, on average.
After the consultation and prior to injections, before photos will be taken and a topical numbing cream will be applied. Once you are numb, the injection process takes about 15 - 30 minutes. The majority of patients report minimal pain and are able to continue their daily activities after treatment. Swelling and bruising are the most common side effects of any dermal filler treatment and can last anywhere from 48 hours up to two weeks.
TEMPLE INJECTIONS: DOWNTIME
At your appointment, you will be given after care instructions and a follow up appointment will be scheduled to assess your results. We always educate our patients on the healing process, which lasts up to 14 days. During the initial two weeks following your injections, it is normal to experience swelling, bruising and an uneven appearance. It is common for one side of the face to swell more than the other, and this should subside within two weeks.
TEMPLE FILLER: RESULTS
Dermal filler results are immediate. However, you are likely to experience the side effects above and full results may not be visible until two weeks following treatment. Temple filler can last 12-18 months, depending on the filler used. At your two-week follow up appointment, we will take photos and make any needed adjustments.
