I want to look less tired

Treatments by Dr. Kate Aesthetics, Cockfosters, North London

Aesthetic treatments can indeed help you look less tired by addressing specific facial concerns and rejuvenating your appearance. Feeling tired can often show in the face through dark circles, puffiness, and sagging skin. 

How can I look less tired?

Here are some aesthetic treatments that can assist in reducing the tired look and giving you a more refreshed appearance:

  • Under-Eye/Tear trough Fillers: Dermal fillers can be used to address hollowed or sunken areas under the eyes, which can create the appearance of dark circles and tiredness. By adding volume to this area, fillers can make the eyes look more youthful and less fatigued.
  • Anti-wrinkle injections for Crow’s Feet: Crow’s feet are the lines that form at the outer corners of the eyes when you smile or squint. Anti wrinkle injections can relax the muscles causing these lines, reducing their appearance and giving a more refreshed look.
  • Brow Lift: As we age, the eyebrows can start to droop, making us appear tired. A brow lift, with anti-wrinkle injections, can lift the eyebrows and open up the eyes, making you look more awake.
  • Treatments for around the eyes: Polynucleotides or light eyes mesotherapy can be used to treat the area under and around the eyes and can help diminish the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and shadows, making the eyes look brighter and less tired.
  • Skin Rejuvenation Treatments: Lumecca IPL, morpheus8 resurfacing, chemical peels, and micro-needling can improve skin texture and tone, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness. This can lead to a more refreshed and youthful complexion.
  • Dermal Fillers for Volume Loss: As we age, we can lose volume in various areas of the face, which can contribute to a tired look. Dermal fillers can restore volume to areas like the cheeks and temples, providing a more rejuvenated appearance.
  • Jawline Contouring: Jawline fillers can improve the definition of the jawline and chin, making the face look more sculpted and less tired.
  • Lip Fillers: Enhancing the lips with fillers can provide a subtle lift to the face and create a more youthful appearance.
It’s important to remember that aesthetic treatments are not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Ensuring you get enough rest, staying hydrated, managing stress, and maintaining a balanced diet can all contribute to a more refreshed and energised look.

There are many factors that can contribute to tired-looking skin, including:

  • Ageing: As we age, our skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin decreases, which can lead to a loss of firmness and elasticity, making the skin look more tired and wrinkled.
  • Dehydration: Dry skin can also look dull and tired, as it is unable to reflect light as well.
  • Sun exposure: Sun damage can also cause the skin to look tired and prematurely aged.
  • Stress: When we are stressed, our bodies release cortisol, a hormone that can break down collagen and elastin.
  • Lack of sleep: When we don’t get enough sleep, our skin doesn’t have enough time to repair itself.
  • Poor diet: A diet that is high in processed foods and sugar can also contribute to tired-looking skin.
  • Smoking: Smoking damages the skin’s collagen and elastin, making it look more tired and wrinkled.

There are a number of things you can do to improve the appearance of tired-looking skin, including:

  • Exfoliate regularly: Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, revealing the brighter, fresher skin underneath. It can also help to stimulate collagen production. Aim to exfoliate 2-3 times per week, using a gentle exfoliator.
  • Moisturise well: It is important to keep your skin hydrated to prevent it from looking dull and tired. Choose a moisturiser that is appropriate for your skin type and apply it twice daily.
  • Wear sunscreen: Sunscreen is essential for protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, which can cause premature ageing and premature ageing. Choose a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and apply it liberally to all exposed skin, including your face, neck, and ears, every day, even on cloudy days.
  • Get enough sleep: Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night.
  • Eat a healthy diet: Eating a healthy diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help to improve your skin’s overall health and appearance.
  • Avoid smoking: Smoking damages the skin’s collagen and elastin, making it look more tired and wrinkled.

There are a number of good skincare products available that can help to improve the appearance of tired-looking skin. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Exfoliators: Look for an exfoliator that contains gentle ingredients, such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs). These ingredients can help to remove dead skin cells without irritating the skin.
  • Moisturisers: Look for a moisturiser that is rich in ingredients that help to hydrate and brighten the skin, such as hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and vitamin C.
  • Serums: Serums are concentrated skincare products that can be used to target specific skin concerns, such as tired-looking skin. Look for a serum that contains ingredients that help to boost collagen production, brighten the skin, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
