Have you tried to look more refreshed and awake, only to still have people think you are tired all the time? No matter what you do, your face still seems sunken or drawn, and those under eye bags just won’t go away. Makeup won’t cover it, and skin care products just don’t seem to be giving you the results you desire. When you get to this point, you may need to start exploring other more effective options besides just trying to cake on more concealer. What are some culprits that cause you to look worn out and tired, and how can you fix it?

Wake up your eyes. The eyes really show whether you are tired or not, so you want to make sure your eyes look awake and refreshed! When you age, you can develop bulging fat and excessive skin under your eyes (you can also just get this from genetics) – which causes the under eye bags that just do not go away. Lower blepharoplasty(lower eyelid surgery) is a common procedure to fix the problem. Another problem is that your upper eyelids start to sag as well. This can impair your vision, and make you look tired all the time. If you can’t open your eyelids fully, everyone will assume you are sleepy! That is where upper blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery) comes in. Generally, eyelid surgery is a quick procedure and recovery time is minimal. Read more about blepharoplasty here.

Energize your face. When you age, you lose volume in your face. This loss of volume is especially noticeable around the lower cheeks and temples. When you are tired, or stressed – this loss of volume will be enhanced even more. Your face will look even more drawn, sunken, and hollowed out. To restore volume in your face, most facial plastic surgeons would recommend a facial filler such as Juvederm, Radiesse, or Sculptra, depending on your aesthetic goals and unique facial featuers.

Another way to rejuvenate your face is to improve the quality of your skin. Hyperpigmentation as well as fine lines and wrinkles will also make you look older and more tired. Remember that great skin you had when you were younger? Or maybe you were acne prone as a teen? Get better skin or clear up your acne scars with a physician applied peel. Don’t underestimate the amount of correction that a chemical peel can restore! It can correct many common skin problems such as fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne and acne scars, rosacea, and many more. With the new line of medi-peels that we are now carrying, you can expect your downtime to be very minimal. A peel will help remove dead skin cells, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and give you a fresh new start!
