Wide Awake About Tired-Looking Eyes
Many people have concerns about a tired appearance around their eyes. Even when they are full of energy, they appear tired because of dark circles, hollow eye appearance, or sagging eyelids. These symptoms can be caused by various genetic and environmental factors. With advances in medicine, there are now treatments to address each of the issues that cause tired-looking eyes.
Issue #1: Dark Circles
Dark circles can be caused by genetics and, as we age, thinner skin around the eye can make dark circles more prominent. Working an eye cream into your beauty routine is a good way to combat dark circles. Many eye treatments will also have a positive effect on fine lines and wrinkles. We recommend NeoCutis’ LUMIÈRE Bio-restorative Eye Cream. If allergies play any role, we suggest using anti-histamines to help with eye inflammation. Adequate sleep and hydration are always beneficial as well.
Issue #2: Hollow Appearing Eyes
With age, faces lose volume; this can lead to a hollow appearance under the eye. These hollow areas often cause shadows on the cheek, resembling dark circles. Hollow areas can be treated with injectables. Products like Restylane and Juvederm are used to gently plump the area. Patients love the immediate and natural looking results without the downtime.
Issue #3: Sagging Eyelids
When skin starts to lose elasticity, patients may find themselves seeking more dramatic results. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can be done on the upper, lower, or both eyelids to remove excess skin and fat deposits. In some cases, sagging skin can even obstruct peripheral vision; eyelid surgery can remove these obstructions. Lower eyelid skin texture and lines can often be improved by microneedling, Fractora, or small amounts of botulinum toxin (Botox/Dysport)
