Tired of Looking Tired? These Cosmetic Treatments Give You a Refreshed Appearance
If you’ve been in a low mood and have seemed to be feeling constantly tired throughout the stay-at-home orders and social distancing of the past year, you’re not alone. This feeling is known as “Pandemic Fatigue” or “Quarantine Fatigue,” and it’s causing many people to report experiencing increased irritability, depression, sleep difficulties, lack of motivation, and a generally run-down quality. Although it’s important to take some simple steps to put yourself in a better mood—such as exposing yourself to natural light, sticking to a daily routine, and practicing self-care—cosmetic procedures such as wrinkle-relaxing injections from our Newton-based team can also improve your confidence. Skin concerns such as facial hollows, shadows, drooping brows, dark circles, a lackluster complexion, and fine wrinkles around the eyes are signs of exhaustion and stress that show up on the skin. The following treatments can make you appear well-rested again, especially when combined with positive changes to your lifestyle.
Wrinkles such as crow’s feet and glabellar lines can make someone appear perpetually sad, tired, or worried. Botulinum toxin injections to the upper third of the face can make these wrinkles look less noticeable and give your skin a smooth and rejuvenated appearance. BOTOX® can also be used for an eyebrow lift to open up the eye area and make you look more awake.
Facial fillers can be used in combination with neuromodulators to provide a fresher and brighter appearance by lifting and adding volume to the cheeks and reducing the severity of deep facial folds around the lower face. Certain types of fillers can also be used to volumize hollowed tear troughs and hide dark circles.
Peels rejuvenate the face, including reducing periorbital hyperpigmentation (dark under-eye circles) along with small wrinkles beside the eyes by removing damaged skin, encouraging skin cell turnover, and promoting collagen production in the delicate skin of the area. These skin rejuvenation treatments give your general skin texture and tone a more clear, radiant, and uniform appearance.
