What Causes a Tired-Looking Face?

A tired face often manifests through various signs, including dark circles, sagging and thinner skin, and deep wrinkles. Aging, stress, and inadequate sleep can contribute to a worn-out appearance. The causes of a tired face extend beyond mere fatigue. Loss of facial volume, diminished skin elasticity, and the effects of gravity can amplify the weary look. Dr. Rizk recognizes that each face is unique, and his approach involves a comprehensive understanding of the individual’s concerns to determine the most effective solutions.
