While prescription weight loss medications offer many amazing benefits, you’ve probably heard of (or maybe experienced) a phenomenon called Ozempic Face. But what is Ozempic Face and what are the best cosmetic treatments for it? Let’s find out now.

What is Ozempic?

Ozempic is a brand name for semaglutide, which is a medication that is now being used to help patients lose excess weight. While Ozempic was originally used to treat Type 2 diabetes, it was FDA approved for weight loss in 2021 under the name Wegovy.

What is Ozempic Face?

Weight loss can have a significant impact on the appearance of your skin. Losing more than 35 pounds in a short amount of time can greatly deplete the skin of essential nutrients. While these weigh loss shots do not directly impact facial fat loss, you still lose fat in your face during your weight loss. This decrease in fat can result in sagging skin that is particularly noticeable in the face, abdomen, and arms.

The fat loss can make people look older by causing sagging skin and deep folds around the mouth and jowls. Instead of supple skin, Ozempic patients are experiencing a significant decrease in elasticity, diminished luster, and thinning skin.

What does Ozempic Face look like?

Patients who lose weight rapidly have reported the following characteristics.

Hollow cheeks, eyes, and temples. The eyes appear deeper set and hollow. The cheeks cave inward and lose their plumpness. The temples are a place where the hollowness is noticeable evident as well.

Hanging skin. When it loses its facial fat support, skin literally hangs off the face. This results in loose and wrinkled skin.

Deep lines around the mouth. The skin folds around the mouth deepen with weight loss creating noticeable marionette lines and nasolabial folds.

Jowling. The fat loss and sagging skin hang over the jawline creating a “jowl.”

Turkey neck. The skin on the neck will hang and become creased with lines and wrinkles. The neck muscles can also form bands with result in loss of the sharp angle of the neck.

How can I treat Ozempic Face?

At Reston Dermatology, we offer some of the best cosmetic treatments for Ozempic face. There are several treatments that can improve the appearance of Ozempic face. We are going to focus on three today: dermal fillers, biostimulators, and laser treatments.

Dermal fillers for Ozempic Face in Reston

Best Cosmetic Treatments for Ozempic Face

Injectable dermal fillers are one of the most effective ways to restore lost facial volume. At Reston Dermatology and Cosmetic Center, we offer a large variety of hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane to treat your volume loss.

Juvéderm and Restylane fillers are designed to add volume and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. They are each available in a variety of formulas, each designed to address specific areas of the face and different degrees of volume loss.

For example, Juvéderm Voluma is specially designed to restore volume to the cheeks, so it is formulated with a thicker consistency. This adds structure and lift to the cheeks to restore their natural contours. Restylane Lyft works similarly for cheeks and mid-face contours.

On the other hand, fillers like Juvéderm Vollure are a softer gel that adds volume to the nasolabial folds. This filler enhances facial contours to create a healthier, more youthful appearance.

Biostimulators for Ozempic Face

Biostimulators like Sculptra and Radiesse contain gel microspheres that add volume and stimulate fibroblastic function. This increases collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production. Similar to HA fillers, collagen stimulators restore volume and definition. But, while HA fillers last 6 months or longer, collagen stimulators can last up to two years.

These injectables are an excellent choice for patients who have drastically lost weight. This treatment gradually restores and enhances facial contours for mor natural looking results.

Laser Treatments for Ozempic Face in Reston

We offer the latest technology here are Reston Dermatology and Cosmetic Center. This includes laser and light treatments to address concerns like wrinkles and sagging skin.

Lasers are excellent at treating deeper wrinkles and texture issues caused by weight loss. Fractional lasers create microscopic thermal channels in the skin to trigger collagen and elastin production. This results in tighter skin and fewer wrinkles.

Radiofrequency technology is another fantastic way to improve Ozempic face. These devices stimulate fibroblastic function to increase collagen, elastic fiber, and hyaluronic acid production. This tightens and firms the skin gradually. It can lift the eyebrows, chin, and neck area as well as improving lines and wrinkles.

Radiofrequency microneedling can also address the loss of elasticity and sagging skin associated with Ozempic face. This device combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to penetrate the skin and stimulate fibroblastic function.

CoolTone or EMtone are also great cosmetic treatment options for volume loss. In addition to fat loss, Ozempic can lead to muscle atrophy. These treatments target the facial muscles and build them back up to restore your youthful appearance.

A Comprehensive Approach

The best way to treat Ozempic face is with a customized, comprehensive approach. After a consultation with our specialist, you will get a treatment plan tailored to your needs. This could combine two or more treatments to give you the most natural looking, best results possible. Sometimes a combined approach is the best way to get optimal results.
