What Causes Tired Eyes and Under-Eye Hollows?


As we age, our skin naturally loses its elasticity and begins to thin out. This reduction in skin volume and elasticity can lead to the appearance of tired eyes. Collagen production diminishes over time, which can result in sagging skin and a more hollowed appearance around the eye area. Additionally, the fat pads under our eyes can diminish or move, leading to volume loss or even shadows under the eyes.

Lifestyle Factors

Various lifestyle choices can significantly affect the appearance of our eyes. A consistent lack of sleep can lead to dark circles under eyes, making them appear more tired and aged. Habits such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can also accelerate skin aging, causing the eyes to look more weary. A poor diet and dehydration can further contribute to the appearance of dark circles, emphasizing the need for balanced nutrition and adequate hydration.


Sometimes, the cause of under-eye hollows is written in our DNA. Some individuals are genetically predisposed to have a more sunken or hollow appearance under the eyes. This genetic trait can be noticed even in younger years and can become more pronounced with age.

Medical Conditions

Certain medical conditions can lead to changes in the appearance of our eyes. Allergies, for instance, can cause under-eye puffiness due to the body’s inflammatory response. Sinus infections can also lead to fluid retention and swelling under the eyes. Thyroid conditions can also affect the overall look of the eye area, leading to puffiness or bulging.

Treatments for Tired Eyes and Under-Eye Hollows

Restylane® EYELIGHT™

What Is Restylane EYELIGHT?

Restylane EYELIGHT is a new product in the Restylane family that offers the same reliability while treating a new area. Restylane EYELIGHT is specifically designed as a dark eye circle treatment. This under-eye filler not only offers a solution for those troubling under-eye hollows but also helps you appear as lively and refreshed as you feel.

How Does It Work?

For those seeking answers on how to get rid of dark circles and revitalize their tired eyes, Restylane EYELIGHT is one option. This treatment uses hyaluronic acid (HA), which is known for its replenishing properties. Enhanced with NASHA® Technology, the filler possesses a firm gel texture, allowing us to carefully inject it right where we want it. This precision helps to effectively reduce shadows, illuminating the eyes and giving them a rejuvenated appearance.

What Are the Benefits of Restylane EYELIGHT?

Restylane EYELIGHT is not just another tear trough filler. Its primary advantage is its specialized formula, tailored to specifically target the under-eye area. The unique composition ensures that the filler stays in place, providing consistent and long-lasting results for under-eye hollows while looking and feeling natural.

How Long Does Under Eye Filler Last?

If you have dark circles under your eyes, you want a tear trough filler that will last. With Restylane EYELIGHT, you can expect sustained results that radiate freshness for several months. Patients have seen results with EYELIGHT for up to 18 months.


What Is EZGEL?

EZGEL is at the forefront of natural facial rejuvenation, offering a distinctive solution for those battling the appearance of sunken eyes. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is at the heart of this treatment. PRF is a powerful component harnessed from your own blood, steering clear of synthetic ingredients while taking advantage of the body’s innate regeneration abilities.

How Does It Work?

EZGEL’s effectiveness for treating under-eye hollows lies in its unique production process. The treatment involves the careful isolation of beneficial cells and growth factors from the harvested plasma of the patient. This enriched concentrate undergoes a heating and cooling transformation, yielding a natural and smoothly textured biostimulating gel. When combined with EZPRF (additional PRF obtained from your blood through low-speed centrifugation), it can be strategically placed in targeted areas. The gel can breathe life into tired and hollowed eyes, and even rejuvenate other facial regions.

What Are the Benefits of EZGEL?

  • Natural Revitalization: Using the patient’s own blood ensures a 100% natural solution for those who aren’t interested in synthetic ingredients.
  • Versatility: Beyond treating under-eye concerns, EZGEL can seamlessly blend with other treatments, enhancing the efficacy of fillers or other solutions.
  • Tailored Treatments: Its adaptability allows for customized treatments, ensuring each patient receives care designed for their unique aims, from collagen stimulation to addressing specific skin concerns.

Which Treatment Is Right for You?

Addressing tired eyes requires a personalized approach, as each individual’s goals and concerns are unique. While some might benefit from the natural rejuvenation of EZGEL, others might find the precision of Restylane EYELIGHT more fitting. Evaluating your specific requirements and discussing them with a skilled practitioner will guide you to the treatment best aligned with your aesthetic goals.

Tips for Preventing Tired Eyes and Under Eye Hollows

  • Sleep Recommendations: Getting enough good-quality sleep each night is key. Rest helps reduce the look of tired eyes and keeps you feeling fresh.
  • Dietary and Hydration Tips: Eating a well-balanced diet with the right vitamins and minerals supports eye health. Drinking plenty of water complements the dark eye circle treatment, helping to lessen puffiness and shadows.
  • Skin Care Practices: Cleaning and moisturizing based on your skin’s needs can help ward off the appearance of sunken eyes. Using products with sun protection and antioxidants also helps protect the under-eye area from outside harm.
