Many, many Sculptra injections have been used safely in the temporal area

Since Sculptra has been released for HIV patients years ago, it has been used safely in the Temporal area.

The technique is a little different, but as trainers we always train certified injectors how to do the temporal area.

sculptra is probably as good a collagen stimulator for the temples as there is...and it's a lot safer than the rest since it has the consistency of a liquid which allows the doctor to aspirate and make certain it won't be injected directly into a vessel...sculptra for the temples is a great choice

Sculptra can be an excellent choice for the temporal area.  Often overlooked, treatment of this area can make a nice difference in making the face more youthful.

Sculprta for loss of volume in the temple area.

Sculptra is an excellent choice to give volume to the temple area.  Often this part of the face is overlooked.  Some volume placed well can make a nice difference.  Talk to your well trained and experienced injector.

Sculptra in the temples

Sculptra works very well in the temple area and can provide a long lasting improvement in the filling out hollowness in this area.  Even a  subtle correction here can have a rejuvenating effect.  It is important that the injections be deep and avoid the vessels that course through the temple area.  Also diluting the product adequately will help avoid development of any visible nodules.

Sculptra Works Very Well in Temples

I am quite impressed with the results provided by Sculptra in the temples; I have not encountered any problems with its use.  Replacement of lost volume occurs gradually and lasts for about 2 years.

Depressed temples

The best fillers for the temple area are Sculptra or fat.  The injection of either is safe as long as the surgeon is familiar with the temporal artery and facial nerve.  Sculptra needs to be done over several months and fat needs a minor surgical procedure.

Sculptra for the Temples

Sculptra is good for the temple area. It creates collagen and may provide long lasting correction to this location.

I like it at dilutions that tend to avoid bumps and find that 3-4 injections (each containing a full bottle of product) work well. Space the injections out by about a month. In some patients, I will use other fillers in this location. One other nice thing about Sculptra is that it provides a long lasting correction.

Sculptra Excellent for Temples

Sculptra is actually a great choice for the temples. No other filler or voluminizer can duplicate its ability  to give a soft, rounded, youthful look. The temples are one of the most underestimated areas in facial rejuvenation and Sculptra can correct this. It is safe as long as the injector can avoid the numerous blood vessels coursing through this area.

Sculptra for temples

Sculptra is one of my favorite products for the temples as it becomes one of the longer lasting solutions, and over time, one of the most cost effective.
