Dark circles, bags, and heavy eyelids can often make someone appear sad, tired and years beyond their age. People are often more receptive to fresh, young and energetic appearances, and possessing these qualities is often associated with positive self-image, self-esteem, and success in the workplace and interpersonal relationships. The sad, tired look can start for some as early as their 20s, but becomes progressively noticeable as we age into our middle-age years  and beyond. There are many cosmetic options that range from injectables, to minimally invasive out-patient surgery that can serve as a shot of espresso for your tired appearance.
