Look refreshed at VIVA Skin Clinics
Many of our patients come to us without specifically knowing what treatment they need, although something we hear frequently is ‘I just look tired’. Tired eyes are a common complaint and can be made up of a number of conditions including; dark circles, eye bags, puffy eyes, drooping eyelids and wrinkles.
As we age, the production of collagen and elastin in our skin becomes impaired and this can be a primary cause of many ageing related symptoms. The skin around our eyes is particularly delicate. Under the eye in the hollows (tear troughs), the skin is very thin and coupled with decreased hydration, this causes it to appear darker and make us look tired. The eyelids may begin to sag which makes our brows drop and our eyes look less wide and alert as is associated with youth. The use of dermal fillers to replace these lost proteins and restore volume is our popular approach to a lot of these concerns. Additionally over time, repeated smiling, laughing and even talking – all perfectly normal day to day functions – can also contribute to wrinkles around the eyes as the muscles form crevices that the skin settles in and presents as a wrinkle.
