What is ‘Ozempic Face’ And How To Fix It?
The Downside Of The Most Talked About Weight-Loss Treatment
After massive weight loss, many people are left with sagging, gaunt skin on their faces – a condition that has been dubbed “Ozempic face.” This condition is becoming increasingly common, as more and more people turn to weight loss medications like Ozempic to help them shed pounds quickly.
Ozempic is the newest weight loss drug on the market and it’s been shown to be incredibly effective. In one study, participants who took Ozempic saw a 14.9% decrease in body weight. If you’re considering using Ozempic or a similar medication to lose weight, be aware that you may end up with Ozempic face – and be prepared to deal with the sagging skin that comes with it.
By using Ozempic, a person may lose 2-4 kg a week, which is primarily fat loss. With significant fat loss you lose fat from your face. The more rapid the weight loss, the less likely it is for the body to balance the weight loss. Therefore, you suddenly start to notice:
- Rapid face ageing signs
- Skin laxity and sagginess
- Dull appearance
- Dry dehydrated skin
- Dark under eyes
- Sagginess around the jawline and mid-neck area
Once significant weight loss occurs, the body not only uses all available fat, but also stops producing other resources necessary for healthy a skin appearance such as collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin as it goes in preservation mode.
How to improve the effects of ‘Ozempic face’?
Skinboosters such as Juvederm Volite, Profhilo, NCTF 135HA are excellent for it. Read more about skin boosters.
Second, repair the structural loss of collagen in extracellular matrix – collagen biostimulators such as Sculptra, Lanluma, Ellanse, or MESO-Radiesse. Read more about collagen biostimulators.
Collagen biostimulators are excellent for skin toning and tightening. They are also less likely to be affected by continuing weight loss as compared to hyaluronic acid, which gets metabolised much quicker.
Stemcells boost your dormant skin cells to produce more hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen. An excellent option is exosome facial rejuvenation.
Finally, energy-based devices such as ND: YAG or Photofacial (DYE: VL laser), will increase available photons energy in the skin to accelerate cell renewal processes. It is an excellent choice to get the immediate glow, tone up and re-energise your skin. If you want targeted skin tightening, may also want to consider Ultraformer3 for deeper muscle toning and prevention of sagging jowls.
Finally for overall wellbeing and helping your body replenish itself, IV nutrients with vit B, vit C and other necessary ingredients are the way to go. IV Therapy will help your body to maintain metabolic processes without slowing down. An excellent choice is our fat burner drip, which will immediately detoxify the liver, remove all excess metabolic waste from increased fat metabolism, and give you more energy.
In conclusion, after a significant and rapid weight loss, it is important to replenish used resources in the skin and stimulate cellular energy processes. The principle is to get out of ‘saving’ or dormant cell phases, in which your body naturally goes during significant weight loss.
