Best thing for tired eyes without surgery?

+1

When it comes to correcting the look of tires eyes there
are a couple of different conditions to consider. Are the eyelids sagging? Is
the skin under the eye crepey? Do the eyes have dark hollow circles? Are there
many wrinkles? Each condition can be significantly improved without undergoing
surgery and in most cases even better than any surgery result could provide.
Here are the four treatments we recommend for the tired eye patient.


    ·Botox (wrinkles around the eyes)

    ·Dermal Filler (dark hollows + crepey skin)

    ·Thermage (sagging eyelids)

    ·eMatrix (crepey skin under the eye)

In any case it is imperative that you consult with a Board
Certified Doctor who specialized in these kinds of treatments.

For many, many individuals, microdroplet BOTOX and periocular fillers provide results that far exceed what can be accomplished with surgery. The key is finding the right person close to home. Generally you will pay a bit more for the best injecting physicians. It is my opinion that the extra cost is well worth it. This is your face and you need to get it right.

What non-surgical treatments can improve tired eyes?

+1

I can't give specific advice for you without photos or a consultation. However, in general, the three best non-surgical options for improvement of tired eyes are:

  • Botox
  • Dermal filler
  • Laser resurfacing

Botox is highly effective for treatment of lines around the eyes caused by muscle movement and can be used to shape and elevate the eyebrows. Fillers can be used to fill hollows in the undereye area of camouflage undereye bags. Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing works by removing a small amount of skin and tightening the undereye area. It is a non-surgical treatment but is typically performed by a surgeon. Laser resurfacing will help tighten the skin but is less effective than a surgical procedure during which skin is actually removed.

It would be very helpful to seek a consultation with an experienced Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist to determine which of these options will be the best fit for you.

Hi Chop. It's easier to answer the question with a photo, but without that we will make the assumption that the concern is at the lower eye.

In this case, we use Restylane injections to help with darkening or hollowing below the eye in what we call the "tear trough" area. Some examples of before and after pictures of this procedure are shown at the link below so if any of the photos mimic your concerns then maybe you should check into injection procedures. Good luck.
