Treating Ozempic Face Sagging Skin with Dermal Fillers | Restoring Lost Facial Fat Support without Plastic Surgery

Welcome to non-surgical facial rejuvenation, a dynamic field that addresses challenges such as those posed by weight loss medications like Ozempic. Today, we delve into advanced solutions like the Eyerise and Baselift filler procedures, designed to reverse facial fat loss and counteract the effects of taking Ozempic, often termed “Ozempic face.”

The Science of Aging and Facial Structure

Aging naturally impacts not only the skin,  but significantly the tissues under the skin such as muscle, fat, and bone as well as collagen and elastin. Taking semaglutide medications like Ozempic accelerates these facial changes, especially with fat and muscle loss in the face – leading to significant facial volume loss. These areas, especially affected by rapid weight loss, lose their youthful fullness, altering facial aesthetics dramatically. This leads to significant foundation loss in the face, resulting in sagging skin and wrinkles. 

A well-supported facial structure is key to aesthetic vibrancy and youthfulness. Significant weight loss from Ozempic may result in making you look older, making interventions a practical option to restore facial architecture and shape.

How Does Ozempic Work?

Ozempic is a type 2 diabetes medication that slows down digestion by increasing the time it takes for the food to leave the body, It works by mimicking a naturally occurring hormone. As these levels rise, the molecules signal to your brain that you’re full. 

Recently, Ozempic and other GLP-1 medications have gained popularity for their off-label use to lose a significant amount of weight quickly. Rapid weight loss may result in the skin on the face looking gaunt. 

Treating Ozempic Face with Dermal Fillers and Reversing Results from Ozempic 

What is Eyerise?

Eyerise specifically rejuvenates the under-eye area and mid-face, which is prone to hollowing from rapid fat loss due to Ozempic. The procedure involves techniques that replenish lost volume and reduce the appearance of being tired, giving a fresher, natural  and more vibrant under eye contour. 

What is Baselift?

Baselift targets the entire face, focusing particularly on the eyes, cheeks, smile lines, and jawline—areas  most susceptible to “Ozempic face.” This procedure is pivotal for restoring definition, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, and countering the sagging effects of rapid weight loss.

How are the Baselift and Eyerise different from traditional surgical facial procedures?

Cosmetic filler procedures add back support so the skin is lifted and recounted back closer to its original resting position. Surgery, on the other hand, involves cutting, moving tissues, and stretching the skin to new positions. Plastic surgery effects are more profound, often leading to altered appearances.

How Fillers Can Reverse the Side Effects of Ozempic 

Types of Fillers Used

When restoring lost architecture in the face, a blend of softer hyaluronic acid fillers combined with longer-lasting, firmer fillers like Radiesse or Sculptra, which are selected for their deep tissue support and ability to stimulate collagen production. 

Mechanism of Action

Fillers act as a scaffold beneath the skin, compensating for the volume loss induced by Ozempic. The strategic injection of these fillers not only maximizes lifting effects but also enhances facial contours, restoring a more youthful appearance.
