The eyes are the windows to our soul, and never a truer word can be said than at this time.
Many of us have felt significant effects of the past year. Patients at our London, Essex and Hertfordshire clinics have spoken about a lack of or broken sleep these past 12 months. Dr Anita Dhunna has never been busier, correcting and perfecting the look of tired eyes and dark circles.
Tired eyes can make us look older than our years, and Dr Anita offers a range of injectable and holistic treatments, as well as expert advice on how to revitalise your eyes and take years off, by following some simple steps.
Tired eye treatment – dermal fillers
Dermal fillers are an incredible tool in Dr Anita’s cosmetic armoury when treating dark circles, eye bags and sunken eyes. Made from a substance called Hyaluronic Acid, which plumps the skin and hydrates the skin tissues, dermal fillers can be injected in small quantities underneath the eyes and in the creases of eye bags to lift the skin and give a lighter skin appearance to this area.
There is minimal discomfort with the treatment, as Dr Anita uses exceptionally well-perfected techniques and numbing ointments if required. There’s minimal downtime with fillers, but you might experience some puffiness of the eyes, tenderness and slight bruising for a couple of days afterwards. However, you can return to your daily routine immediately after your treatment. Patients can use mineral makeup to disguise any bruising that may develop, and the use of an ice pack and arnica can minimise bruising.
The great news is that results can be seen immediately, as dermal fillers physically plump and support the skin, fill crevices and volumise hollow areas. This lunchtime treatment is ideal for those who want a non-surgical approach and fast results.
Combining fillers with Botox
Not only are dermal fillers perfect for restoring vitality to the eye area, but Dr, Dhunna can use them in conjunction with anti-wrinkle injections (Botox®). Botox® is a neurotoxin that temporarily relaxes the muscles, which create expression lines and dynamic wrinkles.
Injecting Botox® around the creases of the eyes, can lift these wrinkles and give a smoother appearance to eye bags and dark circles. Using dermal filler and Botox® in combination around the eyes can offer significant results which can last many months.
Preventing dark circles and tired eyes
Using injectable products to enhance or correct the eyes is a sure-fire way to improve your appearance. However, Dr Anita Dhunna also advises on keeping your skin in tip-top condition and taking preventative measures to avoid further dark circles.
Using a high-quality, pure cosmeceutical skincare brand with highly effective ingredients can help your skin become more resilient, smooth and youthful-looking. Dr Anita Dhunna will advise you on the type of products you could be using to maintain the beautiful results achieved with Botox® and dermal fillers.
A healthy lifestyle is one of the best ways to reduce the look of tired eyes and maintain soft, smooth and resilient skin. Eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains and healthy protein can help your body repair itself if you aren’t sleeping well. Regular exercise helps with sleeping patterns, as does holistic therapies such as massage. Yoga and meditation can help relieve stress and outside activities such as simple walking or light jogging.
Drinking at least 2 litres of water a day will help flush out toxins and help restore your skin’s hydration and using a high-factor SPF will protect your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays.
Clinic-based treatments are always going to be a win-win when it comes to looking and feeling great. However, Dr Anita Dhunna believes that for optimum results, following a healthy regime and investing in great skincare can optimise your results and help you feel more balanced in your mind, body and skin. She can offer you a wealth of advice in a no-obligation consultation and skin analysis at our clinics in Hertfordshire, London and Essex and will create a tailored plan to suit your unique and individual requirements.
