Abstract

Injectable fillers allow for augmentation of soft tissue deficiencies caused by aging, trauma or other scarring. Placement of injectable fillers can be performed in the office, safely and with minimal patient downtime. In order to avoid complications from injection of filler substances, the injector must have a thorough knowledge of the applied anatomy. The temple and forehead are often associated with aging changes. This article describes the anatomic layers of the forehead and temple, and discusses the various planes for safe injection of fillers.
