Juvederm Restores Volume to Rejuvenate Aging Earlobes
Years of wearing earrings coupled with the effects of gravity leave many of us with softer, floppy, deeply grooved earlobes with an unattractive elongated hole. The side effect is that earrings tend to droop forward and actually attract attention to this problem. Just like the rest of the body, ear lobes are affected by gravity and loss of collagen. The ears aren’t the typical part of the body we think of when we think of fighting the signs of aging, but over time your earlobes will lose collagen, thus lose elasticity and plumpness. We have the solution and it’s so simple!
The great news is that this can be significantly corrected with the use of injectable dermal fillers to plump the earlobe. We prefer to use Juvederm – the same filler that we use on the face – to correct the shape and strength of the earlobe.
This added support from Juvederm plumps up the ear lobe to its former shape and makes the earring hole not look so stretched out so your posts will be seated better.
The Ear Lobe Rejuvenation Procedure
- Juvederm injections are used for the procedure, and done in our skin care office in a single appointment.
- Topical numbing is all that is necessary to keep you comfortable through the procedure. Arrive for your appointment 15 minutes early to begin numbing.
- Juvederm is injected with very small needles for the comfort of the patient.
- The time of the procedure is only about a half hour.
- Best results are seen if filled to recommended and prescribed volume.
Downtime and Post Procedure
- There is no down time and you can return to your day immediately after the procedure.
- You may only see a little redne
- Price for the procedure depends, of course, on the amount of filler needed for each patient.
- Most procedures only require one syringe, which is $500.
- As corrective procedures go, this can be a very inexpensive fix for something that is bothering you. If you achieve full cosmetic correction most patients never need to repeat the treatment!
The results are long lasting rejuvenation of the lobes, keeping these tell tale hints of age at bay. There is virtually no recovery time, and you can show off those great earrings again immediately!
