Do you feel like you look tired no matter how much sleep you get?

We all know that ‘tired look’ – heavy lids, haggard skin, and hollows beneath our eyes and cheekbones. Aesthetic treatments, such as anti-wrinkle injections and subtle fillers, can remedy these problems.

After all, you often feel better when you look better – and you don’t need to go under the knife. While most cosmetic procedures can make you look more youthful and relaxed, I recommend a few specific aesthetics treatments when someone feels tired. The best options for a tired look often include Botox, Profhilo skin booster injections, and tear trough filler.

We’re Getting Less Sleep Than Ever

Working from home, taking care of kids, and keeping up with housework, all while trying to eat well and have some ‘me’ time and maybe even a social life. So, it’s no wonder many of us struggle to get enough sleep!

According to a 2020 YouGov poll, more than three-quarters of Brits get fewer than 8 hours of sleep each night. Without enough sleep, you start to look a bit ragged, with hollows around your eyes, dehydrated skin, and increased wrinkles.

Does this sound familiar? If you aren’t getting enough rest, your sleep hygiene should be your first ‘fix.’ However, no matter how well-rested, some people always look tired and worn out.

At my London aesthetic clinic, I see many patients who want to look younger, fresher, and more alert. With these popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures, I can help them do just that. These procedures are non-surgical and minimally invasive – I use an artistic eye to create subtle changes that look natural and effortless. My patients love that there is little to no downtime so that they can head straight back to their daily routine.

Popular Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures To Help You Look Well-Rested

Check out these aesthetic procedures that will have you looking your best in no time at all. After all, you may not be able to get 8 hours… but you can look like you did.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

As we age, fine lines and wrinkles start to form. Over time, these features can make our face look aged and tired. However, treating areas such as the frown, forehead and around the eyes can make us look more youthful.

A good aesthetics doctor will examine your facial structure and decide where to inject the anti-wrinkle treatment. Commonly known as Botox, it works by relaxing the muscles between, so that fine lines and wrinkles soften. As an added bonus, your skin will appear smoother and less wrinkled.

Botox can also be used to give a brow lift. I can apply a lift to the outer edges of each brow, which gives that sleek and sexy ‘fox eye’ look that is so popular with people like the Kardashians and the Hadids.

Profhilo Skin Booster Injections

Profhilo is a newer treatment that my patients request by name. It makes them look rested, hydrated, and glowing, so it’s no surprise it’s growing in popularity. This injectable treatment is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), which is naturally occurring in human joints and connective tissue.

HA is used in many topical serums and creams because it increases the skin’s elasticity and ‘bounce.’ However, it is even more effective when injected directly into the skin. I inject Profhilo via very fine needles into specific points around the face, and the HA starts to work through your tissue.

It stimulates collagen production for different types of collagen in your skin, providing instant results. Profhilo continues stimulating collagen for up to a year, giving you firm and dewy skin and helping you look less tired.

Tear Trough Filler

Tear trough filler is another excellent way to look like you’ve had a good sleep. When we’re tired, we lose volume under our eyes or see heavy, sagging bags. That’s when fillers can really make a difference.

For my patients with deep tear troughs, I inject dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid gel, the same active ingredient in Profhilo. HA boosts collagen production and gives you a smooth and full under-eye area so that you look rested and rejuvenated.

The results from tear trough fillers are really remarkable. People look great immediately, but the results get even better over the next weeks and months. Over time, patients notice that their previously exhausted undereye area is more hydrated and looks softer and more refreshed.

Are You Tired Of Looking Tired?

If you’re tired of looking tired, you’re not alone. My patients want to look well-rested, and these treatments can help. Aesthetic treatments like the ones above are non-invasive, affordable, and safe.

With so many innovative new ways to make your skin look younger and more radiant, it’s no wonder that many men and women are turning away from the traditionally invasive facelifts and other plastic surgery treatments.

After all, why go under the knife when you can find minimally-invasive procedures that don’t involve hours of surgery and extensive downtime? We’re talking about non-surgical facelifts, which give you the same results as traditional facelifts but with much less fuss. But how do you prepare for these procedures?

There are several different types of non-surgical facelift methods available to you, and each one has different requirements you should meet before your appointment.

What Is A Non-surgical Facelift?

A non-surgical facelift is a cosmetic procedure that is either minimally invasive or non-invasive and is used to rejuvenate the skin and complexion and combat signs of aging. These facelifts are used to address a variety of skin issues including wrinkles, fine lines, enlarged pores, volume loss, creases, and more.

Different types of non-surgical facelift include Dermal Fillers, Botox, ThermaLift, UltraLift, and chemical peels, and laser resurfacing.

How Should You Prepare?

Preparation for a non-surgical facelift depends on the kind of treatment you are getting. For this reason, the first steps of preparing for your appointment should be research and consultation. As mentioned above, there are a number of different non-surgical facelift options you can try, so preparation will vary depending on the treatment you choose.

First, you should get familiar with these different facelift treatments so you know how these options work and who is the best candidate for them. Once you’ve done a little research you should reach out to a dermatologist or practitioner of nonsurgical facelifts near you and arrange a consultation. They can help to review your options, and give you an informed, professional opinion on which option is best for you based on criteria such as your general health, age, loss of volume in the skin, and desired outcomes.

Once you know which treatment you want to go with, you will have a clearer understanding of how to prepare and will be given further instructions by your practitioner once you’ve booked an appointment. Possible treatment and preparation should include:

Fillers

  • When getting fillers you should avoid anything that thins the blood 24 hours before your treatment, as blood-thinning can result in heavy bruising after treatment. This includes alcohol and certain medications and supplements, which you can check with your practitioner.
  • Avoid laser hair removal, laser resurfacing, tweezing, or exfoliating 48 hours before your session.
  • Depending on where you are being treated and what fillers you are using, you may need a numbing cream or local anesthetic applied beforehand.

Botox

  • Avoid coffee, caffeinated beverages, and alcohol 24 hours before. Alcohol can thin your blood and caffeine can raise your blood pressure, both of which may exacerbate bruising or bleeding after treatment. The same goes for any blood-thinning medications or painkillers.
  • Avoid tweezing, waxing, bleaching, or depilatory creams 48 hours before.
  • Don’t use topical products that can break your skin as this may cause infections after treatment. These include Glycolic Acid, Retinoids, Retinols, and Alpha Hydroxy Acid.

Ultralift

  • Refrain from wearing make-up or other skincare products 24 hours prior to treatment.
  • Discuss potential pain medication/numbing agents with your practitioner before treatment.

Thermalift

  • Make sure your face is fully cleansed before treatment.
  • Thermalift requires less preparation than most nonsurgical facelifts. No pain management is needed, but you should discuss the skincare products you currently use with your practitioner to make sure they won’t affect treatments.

Chemical peels

  • In the week leading up to treatment, avoid hair removal treatments on the treated area such as waxing, electrolysis, and depilatory creams.
  • Avoid exfoliants, face masks, skin-lightening products, and any self-tanning products for 48 hours prior to treatment. You can discuss any other topical agents that should be avoided with your practitioner.
  • Use broad-spectrum sunscreen generously for a month prior, to keep pigmentation even.

Laser resurfacing

  • Avoid smoking prior to treatment as it can interfere with the healing process.
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory medications and certain supplements which can cause excess bleeding after treatment.
  • Discuss topical treatments that you use with your practitioner, as some you may have to stop using them. You should also mention any skin issues, such as acne or cold sores, that might interfere with treatment.

Hopefully, you are now more aware of what preparations and precautions you need to take before you look for a service that provides non-surgical facelifts near you. Once you’ve found the right practitioner, they will be able to discuss these preparations in even more detail.

It’s important to know exactly what preparations you should take before facelift treatment so you can get the best results without further complications.
