Tired Eyes Make You Look Older

Known as the window to your soul, your eyes can reveal a lot about you and your clients. One major revelation is age. Delicate, thin skin around the eye area is one of the first areas to age. Dark circles, crow’s feet, bags and swelling can make you look exhausted and angry when you’re not—and years older. It’s probably not surprising to find out that eyelid surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in women. Additionally, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) reports that in 2016, facelifts, browlifts, and blepharoplasty (eye lift) were the three most commonly performed procedures in adults over 55.


 According to the AAFPRS, everyone is laser-focused on the impression our eyes are making. In fact, 62 percent of facial plastic surgeons report in the annual survey that patients requesting eyelid procedures to look less tired is a rising trend.

If clients are at the end of the rope with their tired eyes, but are not ready for surgery, there are several intermediate steps you can offer for them that make a big impact—and as explained below, may not require surgery.

There is literally something for everyone, of almost every age and with almost any combination of wrinkles, sags and bulges.

  1. Fillers (to lessen dark circles)
  2. Botox (to relax muscles around the eyes and lift a heavy lid)
  3. Light therapy (non ablative fractional lasers tap into the power of light to grow new collagen)
  4. Microdermabrasion (to smooth out crow’s feet)
  5. Chemical peels (to boost collagen)
  6. Serums and anti-aging creams (to nourish and hydrate)

However, for most people with a history of sun exposure and improper care of the sensitive tissue in their early middle age, the blepharoplasty (eye lift) which removes the excess skin on upper eyelid and lifts lower eyelid to raise circles under the eyes or a brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, which reduces wrinkle lines, improves frown lines, raises sagging eyebrows and and eyelids placing the eyebrows in a youthful position is the best answer.

  • "Dr. Hochman, Kim, and the entire staff have saved my life. I've never had a doctor so genuinely interested in my health and wellbeing. My migraines rule my life, but because of Dr. Hochman's treatments, I am able to have a measure of freedom again. I cannot recommend him enough for migraine treatment. He is compassionate, caring, professional and, frankly, family at this point."
  • "Dr. Hochman and his staff have been caring for our daughter and treating her Port Wine Stains for over 10 years now! He is a world renowned Dr and in high demand, but the brat part is he LOVES our child and that makes him the best! We consider Dr Hochman and his staff one of our greatest blessing and thank God for them!"
  • "To be honest, I couldn’t have had a better experience. From start to finish, Dr Hochman and his wonderful staff took the BEST care of me. I had a VERY large basal cell area removed from the side of my nose and cheek. They referred me to a wonderful dermatologist who got me in right away. After the Mohs procedure, Dr Hochman did my repair three days later, right in his own office with a fabulous anesthesiologist and super nurse. And now, twelve weeks later, you can hardly tell anything was done. Beautiful job!" -
  • "We absolutely LOVE Dr. Hochman! Our 16 month old had a large hemangioma removed from his forehead and you can’t even tell it was ever there! He did such a great job there isn’t even a visible scar. He is honest, to the point and was beyond helpful after hours when we needed him. We are beyond happy we found him!" -Laurie

  • "If every doctor and staff strives to be as caring and generous as you, the world would be filled with more smiles and laughter. You and your team took care of us as if we were the most important people on earth. We appreciate and value your outstanding expertise and care. Surgery, even elective, is scary. We would like to thank you for making this such an amazing experience." -MW & WB
