Ozempic Face Explained: What is it and How to Avoid it

Are you looking for an in-depth guide on the viral Ozempic face? Here’s everything you need to know!

Ozempic, a popular diabetes drug, is doing rounds on social media due to its striking weight loss results. Many celebrities have jumped on the Ozempic trend to alter their appearance dramatically. However, the drug is also in the news for its unwanted side effect – the Ozempic face.

What is Ozempic face?

Ozempic, the viral weight loss drug, is a prescription medication for Type 2 diabetes. Its main component, semaglutide, mimics the actions of the GLP-1 hormone in the body, which helps to regulate blood sugar levels. In multiple studies, Ozempic has been shown to be an efficient weight-loss medication. In fact, one study found that those taking the drug experienced a 14.9% decrease in body weight.

Even though this drug can help you lose weight quickly, it has some side effects. The most common unwanted effect of this drug is the Ozempic face. But what is it? It is a term used to describe the loss of fat in the face that can occur as a side effect of taking Ozempic. Rapid, significant weight loss drains the body and skin of vital nutrients and can disturb the homeostasis, or balance, of the endocrine and GI systems. Because the essential fatty acids that make up the skin barrier function are suddenly and rapidly depleted, the skin becomes thinner, loses its elasticity and appears duller. It also has a negative impact on your collagen and elastin metabolism. Your face may appear different as a result, showing deeper lines and wrinkles, as well as sunken cheeks and a thinner-looking face. Similar effects can be seen in the other areas of your body as well.

How to avoid Ozempic face?

Do you want to avoid thinning and sagging of skin after rapid weight loss? Or do you want to minimize the risk of Ozempic face? Here’s what you can do:

Dermal fillers

Since the American Academy of Dermatology Association recommends dermal fillers to restore lost volume and fullness in the face, they can be an excellent treatment option for Ozempic face. Dermal fillers work to produce a fuller, smoother appearance when injected into the face. The chin, cheeks and under-eye region are some areas where the filler can be injected.
