Sculptra can help
Sculptra is a excellent consideration for filling in the temporal area. The results are seen in 2-3 months and can last for up to 2 years. The result should be subtle and natural appearing.
Treatment for Temporal wasting
Volume loss in the temple area is a common and often overlooked area. Replacing volume in the temporal area can significantly improve and restore a youthful contour to the face. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm can be used as a temporary filler. Radiesse and Sculptra also can be used to provide a longer lasting result between 1-2 years. A more permanent option is fat transfer, which is taking fat from one part of your body and injecting into the temple area using very small cannulas. This can provide a natural long lasting result that basically replaces fat that has been lost over time in this area.
For temporal wasting I have used hyaluronic fillers slightly diluted with lidocaine for easier injection, less pain, and I think lower risk of lumpiness. Good luck.
