The eyes are often the first area to begin to show the signs of ageing, and many men and women suffer from tired eyes. Eyes appearing aged and tired could be a result of allergies or a loss of sleep, but it can also be caused by ageing or even sun damage. Those who suffer from tired eyes often have dark circles and bags below the eyes, loose skin, puffiness, wrinkles, fine lines and dark pigmentation.
As the skin around the eyes is thinner than anywhere else on the face, it is more prone to ageing and developing lines and wrinkles. For most people, this is caused by a loss of facial fat and collagen levels and elasticity of the skin over time.
Tired Eyes Treatment At Hans Place Practice
There are a number of treatments available that can help ease the appearance of tired eyes. Here at Hans Place Practice, we are experts in reviving tired eyes and complexions. We can recommend the best course of treatment for you by carrying out a skincare assessment and consultation. Our treatments that can be used to ease tired eyes include;
Botox has been around for a long time and has developed a lot over the years. It is the process of injecting prescription medicine into the muscles in the problem area in order to improve appearance of lines and wrinkles. The medicine injected will block the nerve impulses in the treated muscles which will reduce muscle activity and can help ease tired eyes.
One of the biggest causes for tired eyes is a reduction in skin collagen which leads to sagging. Dermal fillers can be used to plump up the eye area and restore the appearance. This treatment is growing in popularity and uses a clear gel which is almost identical to naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. This gel then works with the hyaluronic acid in the body to smooth the eye area and fill lines and wrinkles.
A popular non-surgical treatment for tightening the skin around the eyes is ULTRAcel. This uses handheld devices which emit ultrasound and radiofrequency to penetrate deep into the skin tissue. This encourages the body’s natural healing process to produce a new healthy appearance around the eye area.
Obagi skincare is a treatment programme designed to treat ageing skin such as tired eyes. It contains prescription-strength formulas and is only available from cosmetic doctors. The clinically proven products improve penetration of prescription and cosmetic agents into the skin barrier. This can minimise the signs of premature ageing and enhance the appearance of tired eyes.
