Fillers in the hands of expert injecter may help to mask the "bony horns". Filling the depressions will eliminate the shadow effect and will make it look smoother. I will also recommend to use longer lasting fillers like Voluma.
Fillers for Forehead augmentation.
Hello HealthInfo101, thank you for bringing up this interesting topic. The forehead bony prominence creating shadows underneath can certainly be contoured with fillers to make it appear smooth. The technique of camouflaging those forehead bumps requires vertical placement of small amounts of (.05cc) fillers right on the bone avoiding the vascular zone. The forehead fillers placement is not routinely done by most injectors, you have to find an experienced physician/surgeon who can help you.
Forehead Fillers are appropriate
Treatment of forehead volume loss with facial fillers is appropriate in a situation like yours. A smooth convex forehead is aesthetically pleasing. I learned an excellent technique for forehead rejuvenation from Canadian plastic surgeon Dr. Arthur Swift over a year ago and have utilized this method regularly with great results.
The technique involves using an HA filler mixed together in a 50/50 blend with 1 percent lidocaine. I typically would use either Restylane Silk, Belotero, or Juvederm Ultra for forehead augmentation. The blended product is then back-filled into a 0.5 ml insulin type syringe. This leaves this small caliber needle untouched so that serial puncture into the mid-forehead is less painful (the lidocaine helps as well). The filler is injected through the frontalis muscle and deposited on the periosteum to safely avoid vascular structures.
The treatment area is tailored to individual regions of volume loss. In your case, this would be around and beneath the “bony horns” that you have noticed. The goal would be to feather in around these areas of prominence and create a softer, more youthful appearing forehead.
I hope that this information helps and best of luck to you!
