One area that has a dramatic impact on the overall youthfulness of the face is the temples. Often overlooked, the temples play a significant role in the shape of the face. As you age, fat and collagen are lost in the face, especially in the temple region. This loss of volume makes the upper third of the face look narrow, creating an older appearance. At RIVKIN Aesthetics, we offer a non-surgical temple enhancement that can rejuvenate the face at our facility on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles.
The loss of volume in the temples is a subtle change in facial shape. It is hard to pinpoint the difference, but the face begins to look more gaunt, tired and aged as the temples shrink. A youthful face has a wider top portion that tapers down to the chin. When the temples shrink, the face is more oval and less heart-shaped, a telltale sign of aging. By adding volume to the temples, the youthful face shape is restored for a rejuvenated and energetic appearance. With advancements in cosmetic injectables, you can replace facial volume without the need for surgery.
