You may not feel tired, but sun exposure, environmental allergies, and the forces of gravity over time may cause you to look that way. If you are tired of looking tired, Dr. Sean Maguire of Physician’s Center for Beauty in Louisville explains the best ways to rejuvenate and brighten your face.
Chemical peels freshen your complexion and reveal radiant skin. They boost the production of collagen, the protein that keeps skin firm and plump. Various types of peels, each with specific properties, can target individual problem areas.
There are peels specially designed for treating the delicate eye area. Some can improve fine lines and crepe paper skin, while others can reverse the signs of sun damage. Peels range from superficial to deep in their exfoliation properties.
Someone saying you look tired when you are feeling fine puts a damper on your day. The development of excess eyelid skin promotes a tired appearance. An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, makes your eyes look more open and can take years off your face.
Aging results in volume loss in the eye area. Skin loses its firmness and starts sagging. Having too much eyelid skin can run in families. If the condition made your parents look older and tired prematurely, there’s a greater risk the same thing will happen to you.
With an eyelid lift, the excess skin is removed and the eyelid’s natural anatomy is restored. Instead of tired, your eyes look vibrant. Blepharoplasty on the lower lid removes bags under the eyes by taking out the fat and removing or tightening excess lower eyelid skin. The patient appears more rested once healing is complete.
While insurance does not usually cover cosmetic surgeries, there are situations in which excess eyelid skin impairs the visual field. If there is a medical reason for blepharoplasty, your insurance may cover it. However, lower lid blepharoplasty is almost always a cosmetic procedure.
The fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes contribute to a tired appearance. The same holds true for those around the mouth or on the forehead. CO2Laser skin resurfacing can be used to treat these fine lines and the crepe paper appearance of the skin, as well as tighten the upper and lower eyelid. Plasma Pen is another skin resurfacing treatment that can be used. It is a procedure done in the office under local anesthesia and is slightly less invasive, with less downtime. This can also give great results, tightening the skin and eliminating fine lines.
