How Ozempic Makes You Look OLDER!
- Posted on: Feb 1 2023
Have you heard of Ozempic? It and its sister drug Wegovy (both have the same active ingredient called semaglutide), are all over the news because so many people are taking them to lose weight. But can it make you look older?
There are reports of a phenomenon called “Ozempic Face.” People who have taken these medications and lost weight are reporting that they look older and gaunt in the face. One person even claims that she doesn’t recognize herself in the mirror anymore! Is there anything to Ozempic Face?
Anytime a person loses weight, they can lose weight (or fat) in the face. It happens to virtually all of us. Combine this with the fact that loss of fat occurs naturally with aging (especially visible in people with more narrow shaped faces like me), and losing weight MIGHT make a person look technically older.
That being said, there are many options if this happens to you. You can undergo fat grafting, where fat is harvested from your hips, thighs, or tummy and injected into the face to replenish the lost volume, or you can consider injections of filler. There are plethora of injectable fillers which are great for adding volume back to the face, including Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Vollure, Restylane Contour, Restylane Lyft, and Sculptra.
Other than the general loss of facial fat that can occur with ANY significant weight loss, there is no evidence that taking Ozempic or Wegovy will cause your face to unexpectedly change. Ozempic Face is just a clever term some doctors are using to make news.
