Treatments for “Ozempic Face”

Ozempic, a new type 2 diabetes medication, has generated buzz on social media as a potential weight loss tool. It has shown great success in helping individuals control their weight and improve overall health by lowering appetite and reducing carbohydrate absorption. However, significant weight loss, whether from Ozempic or other methods, can lead to changes in skin appearance and structure, often referred to as “Ozempic face.”

Losing facial volume and collagen is a natural part of aging, but can be accelerated by sudden weight loss. If you are experiencing volume loss, also known as Ozempic face, here are some treatments at Revive that can help with mitigating its effects.

What is Ozempic Face?

“Ozempic face” refers to the rapid weight loss that comes with taking Ozempic (semaglutide). Originally designed to manage type 2 diabetes, this medication was later approved for weight loss under the name Wegovy. Ozempic works by reducing appetite and slowing down how fast your stomach empties, leading to significant weight loss. However, this quick weight loss can also reduce the layer of fat under your skin that helps keep it firm and elastic. As a result, you might notice hollow cheeks, sunken eyes, and sagging skin. This rapid fat reduction accelerates the aging process, making your skin look older and less resilient much faster than if you lost weight gradually or naturally.

Does Ozempic Face Go Away on its Own?

Yes, Ozempic face can improve over time, especially if proactive measures are taken. While the initial rapid weight loss can cause noticeable changes in facial appearance, maintaining a stable weight and following a good skincare routine can help mitigate some of these effects. Additionally, facial fillers, fat transfer procedures, and even non-surgical facelifts can significantly restore volume and elasticity to the skin.

How to Reverse the Look of Ozempic Face

Reversing the effects of Ozempic face can be effectively achieved through several treatments designed to restore facial volume and improve skin texture. Here are three popular options:

Facial Fillers

Facial fillers are a widely used solution for addressing volume loss due to Ozempic face. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, can restore volume to the cheeks, temples, and around the mouth. These treatments help give the face a fuller, more youthful appearance.

Facial Filler


Sculptra is a unique treatment that stimulates the body’s natural collagen production over time. Unlike traditional fillers, Sculptra gradually enhances facial volume, leading to long-lasting improvements. It is particularly effective for subtle and gradual volume restoration in areas like the cheeks and temples.

Reunvà is a revolutionary treatment designed to restore facial volume and rejuvenate the skin. This treatment uses advanced bio-stimulatory techniques to enhance collagen and elastin production, offering a natural and youthful appearance. Reunvà can target specific areas of volume loss, such as the cheeks and under-eye regions, providing a comprehensive solution to reverse the effects of Ozempic face.


Radiesse can deliver immediate, natural-looking results while offering long-term benefits. Radiesse is made from calcium hydroxylapatite that integrates into the skin to regenerate tissue by promoting collagen and elastin production.  A firm network of collagen and elastin fibers forms which provides the skin with renewed function, strength, and long term structural support. By promoting a fuller, smoother, and more hydrated appearance, Radiesse effectively combats signs of aging, improving overall skin quality and leaving skin visibly plumper and rejuvenated.


Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment combining microneedling with radiofrequency energy. This treatment stimulates collagen production, tightens skin, and improves texture. It is effective for reducing sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles, making it a great option for combating the signs of Ozempic face.

In addition to these treatments, maintaining good skincare habits is necessary. Using high-quality, medical-grade skincare products can improve skin elasticity and hydration. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water and consuming a protein-rich diet can also support skin health and resilience.

Filler Treatments

Facial fillers are a popular option for addressing volume loss and the effects of Ozempic face. Depending on your skin type and the extent of volume loss, different types of fillers can be used.

These fillers can add volume to the cheeks, lips, and under-eye areas, and smooth out deep lines around the mouth.
