It is no surprise that our eyes are the focus of attention when interacting with others. We can infer a person’s age by looking at expression lines around the eyelids, laxity of the skin above and below the eyelashes, and excess tissue that creates bags or shadows (dark circles). These signs also seem to convey a wrong message. Your friends and colleagues may ask if you are upset, sad or just need rest; however, you may feel young and energetic! These “tired-looking eyes” are mainly caused by skin laxity, herniation of fat, and loss of volume. We can start noticing theses signs in our thirties or even our twenties depending on the color of our skin and, of course, our genetic background. Our eyelid specialist can help you target these problem areas to achieve a rested appearance.
