Sleep apnea can dramatically curtail the healing power of sleep and it causes a diminution of its positive effects. Facial appearance can provide telltale signs that someone isn’t getting enough quality sleep. Deep, dark circles under the eyes and saggy facial features are areas of concern that show clearly the detriments of a lack of sleep. Sleep apnea is characterized by pauses and interruptions of sleep which make it nearly impossible to enjoy its healing benefits.
