Tired eyes will come for us all if we’ve been up all night socialising or aren’t sleeping properly. Sometimes concealer and colour corrector for the dark circles will do the trick, but only for the temporary kind of tired eyes. Under-eye bags caused by sleepless nights are thankfully just a reaction to your fatigue, which means they’ll go away once you’re recharged. Tired eyes that always look tired because of the quality of the skin that lies beneath them, on the other hand, often can’t be masked by makeup. Could tear trough filler be the key to improving tired eyes?
Why tired eyes and dark circles occur
There are two main components of tired eyes – under-eye hollows or ‘bags’, and dark circles. Under-eye hollows occur when the skin in the area is naturally thin through your own biology or through the ageing process. This thin skin can hug the eye-sockets too much, producing a sunken or hollow eye appearance. The ageing process doesn’t aid these either, as the production of collagen is stopped, and our natural reserves deplete over time to produce gradually thinning skin. Even loosing volume in the cheeks can pull down the skin in this area. Dark circles occur because the thin skin in the area becomes a little transparent. It shows through the dark blood vessels and muscles under the skin’s surface. Both of these natural occurrences can prematurely age you, which is why a lot of people seek treatment for their tired eyes, under-eye bags, and dark circles.
Tear trough filler for tired eyes
Tear trough filler is an advanced injecting technique that helps to improve the appearance of sunken, tired, and hollow-looking eyes. This treatment carefully places dermal filler beneath the eyes to add more volume and substance to the skin. This helps it to appear ‘thicker’, as it plumps the skin to create more substance between the dark muscles and the surface of the skin. Not only does it lessen dark circles, but it also plumps the skin so that it doesn’t rest atop of the eye sockets, helping the eyes to appear less sunken and hollow. In turn, tear trough filler helps your eyes appear more awake, wide, and brighter.
Is it safe?
Dermal fillers as a material are perfectly safe when injected correctly, because they contain hyaluronic acid that naturally occurs in your body. This helps them to be accepted by your skin, following some minor side effects that are to be expected, while also achieving natural-looking volume. The injecting itself needs a steady, advanced approach, so you should only seek qualified professionals to perform these treatments.
