Does Temple Filler Migrate?

By March 27, 2023 No Comments
Temple filler consists of dermal fillers injected into the temple area. This helps to address hollowing in the temples due to age, weight loss, or genetics. It can also help lift the eyes and create a more heart-shaped face. Since temple filler is still not common among the casual filler patient, patients often have questions such as, “Does temple filler migrate?” Any filler injected in any area of the face has the potential to migrate. Overall, filler migration is rare and if it does occur, it generally does cause any major effects and can be dissolved and reinjected. However, in the temple, the bone structure makes it extremely hard for the filler to move anywhere. Temple filler migration likely indicates the filler was injected too superficially and not deep enough so that the temporal boney fossa can hold it in place. As long as hyaluronic acid fillers are used, the filler can be dissolved with hyaluronidase injections and reinjected correctly.
