Look less tired - Dr Jake Sloane

i want to look less tired

Looking tired is one of the most common reasons people seek out cosmetic treatments. It's never nice to told that you look tired, but it's particularly hurtful when you're not.


It's really important to understand that whilst working hard, looking after your baby or having a rough nights sleep might make you feel tired, these issues won't change your anatomy. You will not develop hollows under your eyes or permanent eye bags because work has been a bit crazy. So don't blame yourself for looking tired, it's very simply your anatomy that creates the look and it can be treated.

what makes us look tired?

As we age, our faces lose volume. The youthful plumpness to our cheeks and under eye areas slowly fades over time and we start to some predictable, visible signs, sagging and hollows. This is particularly common in the mid-face and under the eye areas.


When we see under eye hollows and bags, we associate this with looking and feeling tired - but it's important to understand that the two aren't linked. Children and teens can have deep tear troughs and under eye hollows but these obviously aren't created by childen being tiredness - proof that our genes also play a key role in how we look.

how can we reduce signs the of tiredness?

By re-contouring the peri-ocular region (the area surrounding the eye) we can hugely improve the signs of tiredness.


It's important to understand that whilst the most obvious signs of tiredness might be directly beneath the eyes, in Dr Jake's experience often the entire cheek complex and surrounding eye area will need some form of support. Areas that may be treated include:

1) The cheek bones

2) The front (fleshy) part of the cheek

3) The junction between the cheek and the eye lid

4) The tear troughs (the deeper groove under the eye)

5) The temples (the side of the forehead close to the hairline)

6) The eyebrows (to help support to lateral eye)


Every face is different and so there's no such thing as a set price for any fillers.  Instead, your face will be examined during your consultation to diagnose how best to improve your signs of tiredness and the minimum amount of filler to make a difference.
