Can SkinPen Microneedling Prolong the Effects of Temple Filler Injections?

Temple fillers, such as hyaluronic acid or poly-L-lactic acid, are used to supply volume and definition to the temples or for overall facial enhancement. However, the results of these injections can fade over time as the body metabolizes the filler. SkinPen microneedling, a minimally invasive treatment that stimulates collagen production, may offer a solution. By improving skin quality and texture around the temples, SkinPen could potentially enhance and prolong the effects of temple fillers.

What Are Temple Filler Injections?

Temple filler injections are a popular cosmetic treatment that can supply volume and definition to the temple area. These fillers, typically made from substances like hyaluronic acid or poly-L-lactic acid, are injected directly into the temples to create a more youthful, sculpted appearance.

When we age, the temples can start to hollow out and lose that nice, full look. That’s where temple fillers come in – they quite literally “fill in” those sunken areas, restoring volume and giving the face a more refreshed, rejuvenated appearance. The results are usually quite noticeable, with patients reporting a more rested, lifted look around the eyes and cheeks.

The effects of temple fillers, however, are not permanent. Over time, the body gradually metabolizes and breaks down the filler material, and the treated area can begin to lose volume again. 

Skinpen Microneedling for Temple Filler

SkinPen is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that uses tiny needles to induce controlled micro-injuries in the skin. Now, you might be thinking, “Needles? Injuries? That doesn’t sound very appealing!” But hear me out – the method behind the microneedling madness.

When the SkinPen creates those micro-injuries, it triggers the body’s natural healing response, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. These are the key structural proteins that keep our skin looking plump, smooth, and youthful. By boosting collagen, SkinPen can improve skin texture, minimize the impressions of fine lines and wrinkles, and potentially even enhance the effects of those temple filler injections.

The idea is that the improved skin quality and increased collagen production around the temples could help “hold” the filler in place for longer, prolonging the sculpted, lifted look that patients desire.

Benefits of Temple Filler And Skinpen Microneedling

The anti-aging benefits of temple fillers come from their ability to “plump up” the sunken, hollowed-out temples that can develop as we age. By restoring volume to this area, temple fillers can create a more refreshed, youthful look.

When you combine this with the skin-rejuvenating effects of SkinPen microneedling, the potential synergistic benefits become quite intriguing. 

Benefits of Temple Filler:

  • Restores volume and definition to the temple area
  • Creates a more youthful, lifted appearance around the eyes and cheeks
  • Can have an “anti-aging” effect by counteracting volume loss in the temples
  • Provides immediate, noticeable results

SkinPen Microneedling Benefits:

  • Stimulates the collagen synthesis and elastin in the skin
  • Improves overall skin texture, tone, and quality
  • Reduces the impressions of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Can enhance the results of other cosmetic treatments like fillers
  • Minimally invasive with little downtime

Temple Filler Procedure

The temple filler procedure is relatively straightforward, but working with an experienced, licensed provider is still important. They’ll start by thoroughly cleaning and numbing the treatment area to minimize any discomfort. Then, using a very fine needle, they’ll strategically inject the filler material directly into the temples.

You may experience a slight pinching or stinging sensation as the needle goes in. But most patients report it’s quite tolerable, especially with the numbing cream. The actual injection process is usually quick, taking just a few minutes per temple.

Once the filler is in place, your provider will gently massage the area to help ensure an even, natural-looking distribution. You may notice some mild swelling or bruising afterward, but these side effects tend to be minimal and resolve within a week or so.

The real results occur within days and weeks following the treatment. As the filler settles in, you’ll start to see a noticeable improvement in the contours of your face. Those hollow, sunken temples will gradually fill out, creating a more youthful, refreshed appearance.

SkinPen Microneedling Procedure

Skinpen starts by cleansing your skin and spreading a numbing cream to help minimize any discomfort. Once the area is prepped, the SkinPen device—which is essentially a handheld pen with a cluster of tiny, sterile needles—is glided across the skin. As it moves, those needles create controlled micro-injuries, penetrating just below the surface.

The sensation is actually quite tolerable, often described as a light scratching or pricking feeling. Your provider will work in small sections to ensure even coverage and keep any discomfort to a minimum.

As your skin responds to those micro-injuries, it kicks its natural healing processes into high gear. This facilitates the production of collagen and elastin – the proteins that give skin its structure, suppleness, and youthful glow.

Who’s A Good Candidate?

The key is to work closely with an experienced, board-certified provider who can evaluate your individual needs and goals. They’ll be able to determine if you’re a good candidate for temple fillers, SkinPen microneedling, or a combination of the two.

Ideal Candidates:

  • Adults experiencing volume loss or hollowing in the temple area
  • Those looking to achieve a more youthful, lifted facial appearance
  • Patients interested in non-surgical skin rejuvenation options
  • Individuals with realistic expectations and a commitment to their treatments

Potential Considerations:

  • Existing medical conditions or allergies that could impact treatment
  • History of poor wound healing or keloid scarring
  • Certain skin types or tones that may be more prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding status (as these may impact treatment options)
