Treating tired eyes with dermal fillers

None of us are complete strangers to tired eyes. Whether we’ve been working too hard, not sleeping enough, or have been socialising until the early hours, dark circles and under-eye hollows develop to confess all of our sleepy secrets. However, tired eyes brought on from literally being tired are often temporary and even to remedy – a good night’s sleep will usually do the job! Eye bags and dark circles that are present regardless of how well-rested we are develop through genetic predisposition and ageing skin, so sadly getting an early night doesn’t help these more permanent bags. Tired eyes and under-eye hollows prematurely age us, but could dermal fillers – and more specifically tear trough fillers – hold the keys to unlocking more awake and present-looking eyes?


Why eye bags occur

Under-eye hollows or dark circles occur in the tear troughs because of how naturally thin the skin is there. As we age, we lose proteins vital to our skin’s elasticity such as collagen and elastin. This leads skin to become thinner and less resilient, the skin resting atop of bone structure instead of being supported by its own fibres. This means our tear troughs can take on a hollower appearance because of how this thinning skin sits atop our eye sockets and cheekbones. Also, this area can appear darker because the thinning skin shows the underlying facial muscles and blood vessels through it, giving the area a purple tinge. If concealers and cucumber slices just aren’t doing the trick anymore, Pro Aesthetics Nottingham might have your solution.


Tear trough dermal fillers for tired eyes

Tear trough fillers, an advanced injecting technique, are an effective solution to minimising the appearance of tired eyes. What this treatment does is place dermal fillers very carefully beneath the thinning skin of your under-eye hollows. The targeted injections help to widen your eyes and minimise the appearance of sunken, sad, or hollow eyes and help them to appear brighter and more awake. The filler sits directly under your skin to literally ‘fill’ this thinning skin, lessening the hollow skin by giving it a little more structure and volume. Placing this treatment between the two barriers of the surface skin and the dark muscles will inevitably lessen the dark appearance of the troughs, helping your eyes appear brighter and more open.


Skin tightening for tired eyes (the non-surgical blepharoplasty)

If you’re not experiencing thinning skin but are instead seeing sagging or falling skin above or below your eyes, you might benefit from an entirely different type of treatment… Plasma technology, more specifically Plasma Pro that we use here at Pro Aesthetics, helps to tighten the sagging and falling skin above and below your eyes that are making them appear aged, tired, and a little morose. This procedure is entirely non-surgical and helps to widen the eyes for a more youthful appearance. This treatment is very different to tear trough fillers, but it still achieves exceptional results (just take a look at the before and after image on our Plasma Pro treatment page!)
