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, and 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 and teens 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. This is particularly common in the mid-face and under the eye areas.
how are looking less tired treatments done?
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 the cheek complex and surrounding eye area 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 may be treated for tiredness 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 lateral orbital wall (where under eye hollows extend around the side of the eye)
5) The temples (the side of the forehead)
6) The eyebrows (to help support the 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.
