How to Not Look Tired, Even When You Are
- Posted on: Jan 29 2020
Most of us are tired… but none of us like looking it! Whether you’re a supermom, busy business woman, or perhaps guilty of binge-watching Netflix all night, lack of sleep can age you faster. When home remedies like cool cucumbers under the eyes and drug store face masks don’t bring your skin back to life… it might be time for more effective solutions! At The Skin Center, we’ve got solutions for just about every problem.
Problem: Forehead Lines & Crow’s feet
When we’re in our teens and twenties, maybe even our thirties, crow’s feet are only temporary. These little lines appear at the outer corners of the eyes when we laugh or squint. They appear because the skin and superficial tissue bunch up when muscles move a certain way. When we rest the face, the lines disappear. When the dermis gets depleted of collagen and elastin sometime during our thirties or forties, the lines that were once only temporary become etched. Botox is a great solution for crow’s feet. A couple of injections will keep the muscles around the edges of the eyes from contracting strongly and, within about a week, crow’s feet will be smooth.
The lines etched on our forehead from constant movement, too much sun exposure, etc can cause us to prematurely age and look tired. Botox relaxes those muscles for a smooth forehead and slight brow lift for a refreshed, well rested appearance. The Skin Center is proud to be ranked Top 10 Botox Provider in the Nation.

Problem: Hollows under the eyes
Solution: Dermal Fillers
Most adults realize their skin will change as they age. What may come as a surprise is the fact that fat and bone tissue on the face also change. For some, this can lead to a hollow appearance under the eyes. Where the eye sockets are hollow, there may be shadowing that looks like dark circles. For this problem, an experienced provider may recommend dermal fillers. Treatment is safe, quick, and results are immediate.
Solution: EyeQ Eyelift
In some cases of mild puffiness, a patient may choose to have dermal fillers to achieve temporary improvement. Injecting the tear trough that separates the lower eyelid from the upper cheek smooth the crease, disguising puffiness. If the puffiness (aka “fat pads”) are extreme enough, the best solution is an EyeQ Eyelift! This minor surgical technique actually removes the fat pads and trims excess skin.
Whether you need a Botox refresh, volume plump with Filler, or to say goodbye to your eye bags, we’ve got you covered! Schedule a free consultation in one of our Pittsburgh medspas or Columbus OH location!
