Look less tired - Dr Jake Sloane


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!


IWhen we see under eye hollows or eye bags (puffiness), we usually associate this with looking tired - but it's important to understand that the two aren't linked. Children, teenagers and young adults can also have deep tear troughs or under eye hollows so our genes also play a key role in how we look.

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. As a result, we start to see some predictable, visible signs including hollowing or bulging of the eye bag areas. 


How can injectables make me look less tired?

By re-contouring both the cheek and the surrounding eye areas in a blended fashion, 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, the cheek complex and surrounding eye areas will also need some form of support. If you think of the area like a tent, each wall of the tent needs to be supported to created an overall, solid structure.


Areas that might need to be treated to improve the signs of tiredness include:

1) The cheek bones (the provide lateral support and better facial shape)

2) The front (fleshy) part of the cheek (to stabilise eye bags from beneath)

3) The junction between the cheek and the eye lid (to smoothen shadows)

4) The tear troughs (to soften the dark groove in the corner of the under eye)

5) The lateral orbital wall (where under eye hollows extend around the side of the eye)

5) The temples (to provide extra lateral support to the eye area and soften hollows here)

6) The eyebrows (to help support the lateral eye and reinflate volume loss here)


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.
