Our skin is composed of layers that hold specialized fibers called elastin and collagen. These proteins work to keep our skin healthy and vibrant by allowing for stretching and the retention of moisture. When collagen and elastin naturally begin to dissipate over time, the effect is that our skin starts to dry out, sag, thin and wrinkle. Without sufficient collagen and elastin, the skin is unable to maintain proper elasticity and , in effect, our skin looks older and less healthy. This occurs on our earlobes in the form of elongation, wrinkling, drooping, drying and thinning – the problem is amplified for women who wear earrings(particularly heavy ones).
Earlobe rejuvenation ( sometime referred to as an earlobe lift) is designed to help with this very problem. The process involves a cosmetic treatment that takes the necessary steps to repair the damaged skin of the earlobe, fix elongation, and improve texture. Typically, injectable fillers are used. Products like hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers can be injected into the earlobe in order to smooth the area’s skin, plump tissue and lift the lobes for a more youthful appearance. Earlobe rejuvenation treatment using injectable fillers also helps to make an earring hole smaller , if it has become stretched with time, and repair excessively large piercings.
