Ozempic Face is Real But We Can Fix It

Couple seeking BHRT.

Losing weight is often celebrated as a significant achievement, but it can sometimes come with unexpected consequences, such as volume loss in the face that contributes to an aged appearance. A new phenomenon has recently emerged called Ozempic Face.

With the rise of celebrities (both admitted and accused) from Scott Disick to Oprah on weight loss medications like Ozempic, we’ve seen these unwanted effects amplified right on the big screen. Fortunately, advancements in cosmetic procedures and the skill of our aesthetic experts like providers at NeoGen Lift offer solutions to combat these concerns.

If you feel your weight loss has accelerated the hands of time, NeoGen Lift offers a revolutionary treatment that restores volume loss and tightens your skin leaving you rejuvenated.

In this blog we’ll uncover:

  • How weight loss affects facial aging and appearance
  • Whether “Ozempic face” is a real condition
  • Non-surgical treatment options for facial aging after weight loss
  • Ways you can keep a youthful appearance throughout your weight loss journey


How Does Weight Loss Affect Facial Appearance?

Weight loss, whether achieved through diet, exercise, or medication, can lead to volume loss in various parts of the body, including the face. This occurs due to the reduction of fat deposits beneath the skin’s surface, causing a hollow or gaunt appearance. Semaglutide, a medication used to manage blood sugar levels and treat obesity, may also contribute to facial volume loss as a side effect.


Is “Ozempic Face” Real and What Does It Look Like?

While the use of semaglutide in weight loss drugs such as Ozempic and Mounjaro certainly contributes to loss of volume, the gaunt look associated with these GLP-1 receptor agonist medications can also happen with rapid weight loss – and even regular, slow dieting.

It’s important to note this does not occur to everyone taking weight loss medication and potential side effects are highly dependent on your change in body weight and structural integrity of your skin.

Loss of fat and massive weight loss often results in a range of unwanted yet common side effects:

  • Loose skin
  • Sagging facial skin
  • Hollowing of cheeks
  • Sunken eyes and undereye bags
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Change in fat distribution
  • Overall, more aged appearance


How Can Saggy Skin and Facial Volume Loss Be Treated?

In many cases, being at a higher body mass often camouflages some effects in the natural aging process that are then revealed when reaching a healthy weight. Depending on the amount of weight loss you’ve had, many will find they have some degree of extra skin and a hollow appearance.

To combat these facial side effects, there are a range of non-surgical methods available to help restore volume and improve the appearance of saggy skin.


Collagen Stimulation with NeoGen Lift

NeoGen Lift uses fractional plasma technology, with protocols specially developed by Dr. Mark Anton at AestheticsMD in Newport, CA. The cosmetic procedure deeply remodels the skin and addresses various concerns, including volume loss by stimulated collagen production. Unlike traditional treatments, NeoGen Lift is the only treatment shown to regenerate skin, improving signs of facial aging such as loose elastin fibers.

In addition to combatting volume loss, skin tightening is also achieved with this in-office facial, helping to restore youthful facial structure and plumpness to dehydrated skin.

Because NeoGen Lift stimulates your body’s natural healing response, the results are long-lasting, improving the overall health of your skin and staving off further aging.





Facial Augmentation with Dermal Fillers

Injectable fillers are a popular treatment option for those looking to restore lost volume and structure to the face. Often made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body and helps maintain hydration and elasticity in the skin, facial fillers can be used as an alternative to fat transfers.

However, because this treatment only adds subtle volume to the face, it is not an appropriate treatment to address excess skin or significant sagging. Additionally, hyaluronic acid-based fillers do not directly treat or improve the health and integrity of the skin and need to be repeated as they naturally dissolve over time.


Healthy Diet & Lifestyle

While it may sound counterintuitive to combat the effects of facial weight loss through diet, getting an adequate amount of protein and essential nutrients plays a significant role in the long-term health of your skin. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats can help support collagen production and maintain the elasticity and firmness of the skin.

Maintaining an active lifestyle also contributes to the overall health and appearance of the skin. Regular exercise improves blood circulation, which helps deliver important nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells, aiding in collagen production.


How Does NeoGen Lift Work?

For those looking to address facial aging after either taking prescription weight loss medication or achieving regular weight loss, NeoGen Lift in Newport, CA is among the best non-surgical treatments.

During a NeoGen Plasma treatment session, a handheld device delivers controlled bursts of plasma energy to the targeted areas of the skin. This energy creates micro-injuries in the deeper layers of the skin, triggering the body’s healing response. As the skin repairs itself, it produces new collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in firmer, smoother, and more voluminous skin.
