Why Do I Look So Tired? How To Treat a Tired Face

In today’s fast-paced world, it is common for individuals to feel exhausted and appear tired regularly. Lack of sleep, stress, and the natural ageing process can all contribute to a fatigued appearance. However, there is a solution that goes beyond coverup by makeup and skincare routines. Facial Injectables can effectively rejuvenate your appearance, helping you look and feel wide awake. This blog will explore some common causes of a tired look and discuss how facial injectables can address these concerns.

What can cause your face to look tired? 

At the risk of stating the obvious, a lack of sleep is a significant contributor to the creation of dark circles around your eyes, puffiness, and a dull complexion. 

Aging is also up there as a key cause of making your eyes look tired and old. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and volume, resulting in sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. 

These issues combined can give the overall appearance of tiredness. Other indirect causes of looking tired include general lifestyle including; work and family commitments, your diet and exercise routine and persistent stress. 

How To Fix a Tired Looking Face? 

There are various treatments available to help reduce the look of tiredness? Facial injectables are a safe and popular option to rejuvenate a face that is looking old and tired. Here are some methods to treat a tired face:

Botulinum Toxin 

Botulinum Toxin can help by relaxing specific facial muscles, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles such as of crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines, providing a refreshed and youthful look.

Dermal Filler Injectables 

Dermal fillers help restore lost volume in key areas of your face, improving the appearance of hollowed areas, reducing shadows, such as your temples, under the eyes or across your cheeks. Fillers can be used to target and smooth the fine lines and wrinkles which contribute to a tired look, resulting in a rejuvenated and awake appearance.

Skin Rejuvenation Treatments

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) treatments like Profhilo help to rejuvenate and hydrate the skin, improving skin tone, texture, and overall complexion. 

Hybrid biostimulators such as the HArmonyCa contain calcium microspheres which can act to hydrate, rejuvenate and regenerate skin through the stimulation of the immune system, promoting a more youthful and radiant appearance. This product is particularly useful in the perimenopause and menopause. 

Always Consult Qualified & Experience Professional

Before undergoing any form of Facial Injectable treatment please ensure your medical practitioner is a fully qualified, experienced healthcare professional who will assess your individual needs and provide personalised recommendations based on your needs and medical history. 

Maintaining Results

While facial injectable treatments can provide fabulous results, it is important to remember that they are not permanent. If you are looking to maintain a refreshed, wide-awake look for the longer term then top-ups will be required. To help maintain the effects of treatment and therefore reduce how often you need to top up, it is crucial to adopt a healthy lifestyle, including getting enough sleep, managing stress levels, and practising a regular skincare routine.

Alongside addressing the root causes of a fatigued appearance, such as lack of sleep, ageing, and lifestyle factors, these treatments can help you look and feel wide awake.
