A perpetually tired expression doesn’t always mean a run of sleepless nights. Puffy bags under your eyes or dark circles can occur as part of the aging process. Rather than settling for life with a worn-out look, consider brightening your appearance by investing in dermal fillers.
The Culprit Behind Tired Eyes: Aging Skin
Looking older doesn’t happen overnight. Environmental stressors like pollution and sun damage, as well as gravity, can take all take a toll on your skin’s health and appearance. Combined with the slowing collagen production that comes with getting older, it’s no wonder why we seem to lose our youthful skin texture with each passing birthday.
The development of fine lines and wrinkles can not only make patients look older – but they can also cause us to look like we’ve missed out on a week’s worth of sleep. This is especially noticeable around the eyes. Your eyes are surrounded by a muscle, the orbicularis oculi, which controls your ability to open and shut your eyes. As we get older, however, the muscle weakens, and fat fills in the extra space. This creates the appearance of under-eye bags and accentuates the groove below the lower eyelid, making patients look like they have puffy under eyes.
Why Dermal Fillers?
Recent years have seen countless dermal filler options hit the market. While many have traditionally been used to add volume to deepening wrinkles and sagging cheeks, more physicians and patients are applying fillers to correct tired eyes.
Dermal fillers are a uniquely appropriate solution for awakening and rejuvenating the eyes. Whereas cosmetic surgery can be too invasive for minor concerns, dermal fillers are administered in a highly targeted and non-surgical manner, ensuring precise care with every application.
The formula used in dermal fillers also makes this option well suited for the delicate task. Some of the most well-known dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane are made from hyaluronic acid. This naturally-occurring substance helps skin cells retain moisture and volume, restoring overall skin quality to a firmer, smoother texture. In the case of filling hollowing yet puffy under eyes, dermal fillers help gently add volume without overfilling the area. The injectable can also be administered below the weakening muscle, treating the cause of tired eyes right at the source.
What’s more, the non-invasive nature of dermal fillers and skilled application makes this the perfect solution for subtly lifting an individual’s appearance without making it look as if the individual has had extensive work done. For many men and women, the instant recovery and longevity of dermal fillers make it the perfect option for looking younger and more alert, more quickly.
