Hairloss and dermal fillers

The basic answer to this question is NO.  If this is done by a qualified MD who has experience in dermal fillers, this is not something to be worried about.  Also I might recommend Sculptra for the temporal hollowing.  It gives better results and lasts longer.  

Good luck

Fillers will not cause hair loss

Fillers will not cause hair loss. I would like to suggest that a magic needle be used for the injection as it is blunt and there is virtually no pain and bleeding.

Will dermal fillers cause hair loss?

Filler will not cause hair loss in the area it is injected, and you should have nothing to worry about. I would recommend choosing a board certified and experienced facial plastic surgeon, plastic surgeon, or dermatologist to perform your injections. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Dermal fillers should not cause hair loss if properly injected

Dermal fillers, whether we're talking about hyaluronic acid, Radiesse or Sculptra, should not cause beard or temporal hair loss. I cannot envision a scenario where that would happen following treatment by an experienced injector. Temple injections are usually very deep and placed far below the hair follicles. While beard area injections are performed more superficially they should not damage the hair follicles and you should not experience any loss of beard hair. I hope this information is helpful.
