Earlobe Fillers: What do they do and how long do they last?
Earlobe Rejuvenation, West Malling, Kent
Fillers have long been used to restore volume, firmness, and structure to the skin, but many people don’t realise the benefit they can have for the earlobes. As we age, the loss of collagen, pull of gravity and years of wearing big heavy earrings often result in stretched out, droopy, thin, wrinkled earlobes.
Earlobe rejuvenation can be very beneficial in renewing the earlobe appearance without the need for invasive surgery. It involves injecting a dermal filler into the earlobe to plump it up and restore volume. Read on to understand exactly what earlobe filler is, how it works, and how long it lasts.
What is Earlobe Filler?
Earlobe filler is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that involves injecting a dermal filler into the earlobe. The filler is made up of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found in the body and helps to keep the skin plump and hydrated. Hyaluronic acid fillers are popular in cosmetic treatments because they are safe, effective, and produce natural-looking results.
Earlobe filler is used to plump up the earlobe and restore volume lost due to ageing or other factors such as wearing heavy earrings. You only need a small amount of fillers strategically injected around the pierced hole and earlobes, the results are instant and immediate, making the earlobe firmer and thicker which helps studs stick out straight and allows your diamonds to catch the light and display your earrings perfectly.
Why our ears are important
The skin on the ear is the same as everywhere else and is often neglected, especially in terms of sunscreen, as very few people remember to apply it to their ears. Therefore, it’s crucial to apply anti-aging skincare products outward to the ears, similar to how we use them on our face and neck. As we age, we lose volume in our lobes, similar to our face. Sun damage, wrinkles, and a loss of collagen and elastin can change the shape of the earlobe, causing it to expand and the piercing to hang lower.
Skin cancer on the ears is quite prevalent, particularly on the outer part that is more exposed to the sun. Hence, it is crucial to apply sunscreen regularly and have a dermatologist examine anything that appears rough, scaly, or pigmented.
Avoid wearing heavy earrings frequently, because it will cause dragging on the piercing. What we see as we age is an elongation of the hole itself, so the hole can get wide and long. The second thing we see is the lobe itself can get very thin. There are only two options for this: fillers or complete lobe repair.
How long does Earlobe Filler last?
The duration of earlobe filler depends on the type of filler used, the amount injected, and the individual’s metabolism. Typically, earlobe filler can last anywhere from six months to a year.
The longevity of the results can be extended by avoiding wearing heavy earrings or other types of ear jewellery that can stretch the earlobe. In addition, avoiding smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and exposure to the sun can help to prolong the results of earlobe filler.
