Fillers for Earlobe Rejuvenation
What woman doesn’t love her earrings? The myriad shapes, styles, colors—most have a pair to go with any and every outfit. The problem is, as you get older and the effects of time start to catch up with you, your trendy earring wardrobe may be the culprit behind drooping and sagging earlobes. As we age, the earlobes will eventually become thinner and less firm than they were. With numerous procedures and treatments that have been developed over the past few decades to treat sagging and wrinkling in the facial area, luckily cosmetic dermatologists have a solution for droopy earlobes as well. Enter, fillers for earlobes.
Dermal fillers injected into otherwise thin, wrinkly or drooping earlobes are giving women a whole new perspective on their ears. Your earlobes don’t have to reveal your age. They can be firm as well as show off that latest pair of hot new earrings in the most fabulous way possible. This is where dermal fillers come into play.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers have been used for quite some time now particularly on the face. They are naturally derived or synthetic materials that are injected into certain areas in order to create more volume and an overall firmer and healthier look. Numerous patients undergo this treatment in the hopes of minimizing wrinkles, making depressions vanish and even plumbing up the lips. Different from Botox, dermal fillers when done by the best dermatologists, can last up to two years—they have more long term effects than you would get with Botox.
As far as safety and side effects, fillers are 100% FDA approved and can be done in the office during your lunch break even. There may be some redness at the injection site, and in rare cases patients experience some pain and headaches, but often this is not the case. With dermal fillers, you begin to see the results almost immediately.
Why Do Earlobes Sag?
It really is about time and age. As we get older we lose a great deal of the elasticity and collagen in our skin. This subsequently causes skin to hang more loosely, as that healthy, firm look gradually disappears. Especially with earlobes, because they have been used to support earrings, often heavier, bulkier ones for years on end, the skin simply loses its capacity to ‘snap’ back into shape. Dermal fillers have become a great way to remake the overall look of that otherwise fading, wrinkly earlobe.
What is Involved with Fillers for Earlobes?
The procedure, just as with any other dermal filler process, is quite easy. Since the earlobes don’t have all of the blood vessels that are otherwise present in the face, the treatment is even simpler when done in this area. It really is important however to first consult with a board certified cosmetic dermatologist so that you carefully go through all important details.
The lobe is injected in several areas to maximize volume, plumpness and reduce the look of wrinkles. The results are immediate and stunning. As more and more women are wearing their hair shorter, the ears are obviously quite noticeable. What we have found with this procedure is that those women who were previously self conscious due t the undesirable look of aging and droopy earlobes, are instantly filled with more confidence and are excited to wear earrings again.
How long do fillers last?
As with any dermal filler treatment, the effects can last from six months to two years, with most patients coming in for a touchup after about a year. Whether or not this is the right treatment for someone will depend on the type of results they desire. Overall, we have found that dermal fillers for sagging earlobes really do help women feel better about how they look. It is a safe, effective and easy way to make a big impact on your overall appearance, and of course, it enables you to keep wearing those gorgeous earrings you love so much!
