Loss of volume in the temple can result in a gaunt, wasted appearance. Dermal filler augmentation of the temples can counteract volume loss and achieve a more balanced and youthful appearance. Although the temporal fossa is a critical area for volume restoration of the aging face, published information is limited. The authors retrospectively describe the treatment of 20 female patients who sought facial rejuvenation and received small gel particle hyaluronic acid (SPG-HA) injections for temporal fossa augmentation. The authors discuss a rationale for their choice of dermal filler and provide a detailed, illustrated injection technique guide for restoring volume in the temporal fossa region with SPG-HA. There is a need for prospective, controlled studies investigating safety, efficacy and persistency of hyaluronic acid fillers in this area of the face.
