Dealing with the aftermath of significant weight loss can present unexpected challenges.
This becomes more apparent with “Ozempic face”, a term that has gained attention in pop culture.
It begs the question – can you reverse Ozempic face?
Yes, you can. While plastic surgery is an option to address this concern, what if a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative could provide a solution as well?
Enter dermal fillers.
In this post, we’ll discuss Ozempic face and how fillers play a role in its reversal.
What is the Ozempic Face?
Ozempic face is an informal term used to describe a specific set of facial side effects that can occur when using the medication Ozempic. These effects typically involve changes in the face, such as a reduction in facial fat and signs of facial aging.
But this isn’t just about looks; it can also affect self-esteem and confidence.
Not everyone who takes Ozempic will have these changes, and if they do, it can vary from person to person. But it’s important to be aware of the possibility and understand why it can happen.
Why Does Ozempic Face Happen?
The changes we see in the face when using Ozempic aren’t really surprising when you look at the reasons behind them.
Studies on how the face changes as we get older reveal that it’s all about the way the shape and structure shift over time. That’s why people in their 40s and 50s are more likely to notice the effects of “Ozempic face,” no thanks to a drop in collagen production.
But there’s more to it than that.
The quick weight loss caused by this medication is the key player here. The skin doesn’t have enough time to bounce back and regain its shape as fast as the pounds are dropping off.
This is what creates the perfect storm for “Ozempic face” to happen.
To sum it up, Ozempic face happens when the aging face (which is a normal part of growing older) meets rapid weight loss triggered by taking Ozempic.
Can You Reverse Ozempic Face?
Yes. However, its reversal requires a medical professional’s consultation on how best to approach management.
One of the best options to reverse Ozempic face is through the use of dermal fillers.

So, what exactly are fillers, and what’s the deal when you get them?
– What are Fillers?
Dermal fillers are crafted from hyaluronic acid or specific bioactive ingredients. They are skillfully formulated for injection into the skin, with the primary goal of restoring lost volume.
What’s great about them is that they are compatible with our body’s biology, which makes them well-tolerated and have a very low risk of causing adverse reactions.
Fillers can be used for the cheeks, lips, under the eyes, nasolabial folds etc.
Some well-known filler materials are:
- Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA): E.g., Radiesse
- Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA): E.g., Sculptra
- Hyaluronic acid: E.g., Restylane, Juvéderm, Belotero
– What to Know About Getting Fillers
It all starts with your consultation, where we talk about what you want — your goals, concerns and expectations. We’ll help you choose the right filler and discuss the cost.
The cost is determined by factors such as the type of filler you get, the number of syringes recommended to achieve your best look and so on.
In addition, an informed consent will be taken.
The procedure is usually quick, and we’ll make sure you’re comfortable. You’ll see results right away, which can last from 6 to 12 months.
But there can be some temporary side effects, like swelling, bruising, redness, and mild pain, which will heal and settle over the two weeks following the treatment.
We’ll also give you some instructions to follow the procedure, like staying upright for 4 hours and not touching the treated area.
