Pretty ears have always been in style. From statement earrings to studs we always like to make our ears look pretty. However, what happens when our ears start to droop? Or, when signs of old age show not just on your face, but also on your ears? Dermatologists and anti-aging specialists have dominated the face, neck, and chest areas of the body so aging does not have to show. The only next obvious area to start is the ears. Here at WellMedica we provide ear lobe fillers for our patients who want to keep their ears looking fresh and rejuvenated.
Ear Lobe Fillers
Of course you’ve probably heard of facial fillers that work to smooth over fine lines, and add volume to give a more youthful look to patients. However, for those that are concerned about their ear lobes we have been using ear lobe fillers for years. It’s a quick in-office fix that you can see results instantly. This beauty trend has become increasingly popular across the country, and can help women to feel more confident and beautiful. Individuals use ear lobe fillers to smooth out the lines and creases, and minimize the appearance of large piercings that can become unappealing throughout time.
Which filler is right for me?
Types of fillers used include Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero, Radiesse, Sculptra, and Bellafill. Which filler Dr. Dima will recommend for you depends on your condition, and desired outcome. Therefore, we encourage everyone to come in for a consultation with the doctor to create a customized treatment plan based on your needs.
What causes sagging ears?
One reason for ears to sag more so than others is if you are guilty of wearing heavy earrings. Heavy earrings can stretch out the ear lobes so much that they are far beyond using anti-aging cream to reverse the effect. Luckily, fillers help protect ears from heavy earrings and can actually prevent delicate lobes from ripping with extra cushion. Another reason for sagging ears is of course aging. Like our face, and neck with time our skin starts to sag.
What to expect?
As noted earlier ear lobe fillers are a very quick procedure usually taking around 5 to 10 minutes. Fillers are virtually painless, but if worried a topical anesthetic can be applied to the area prior to treatment. Many state that during treatment they don’t even know they are being injected, and it’s “over before you know it.” Results are immediate, and ears should feel firmer and thicker and look brand new. Dermal filler results last longer in the earlobes because there is no dynamic muscle movement like in the face. However, we recommend touch-ups throughout the year to keep your desired look.
Are ear lobe fillers safe?
Fillers are safe when an expert physician with the right qualifications is the one injecting patients. Here at WellMedica Dr. Dima does all injections and dermal fillers, and is considered an “expert injector.” Expert injectors are physicians who have undergone extensive training in performing injectable procedures. As mentioned before Dr. Dima has been injecting fillers into the ear lobes for years, and has received fabulous results. Many describe Dr. Dima as an “artist” when she injects as she looks at cosmetics and aesthetics as an art form.
When can I wear earrings again?
A few hours after treatment patients are able to wear earrings normally. One may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising after injection which is totally normal. This should only last a few days.
