Dark circles under eyes at 25
I have never heard about the laser activated injections so cannot comment on this.

Looking at your photos you look significantly younger than 25.
I agree that you have a rather prominent tear trough at the transition between your lower eyelid and cheekbone, but it does not look like you have significant extra fat or skin in that area. The dark circles can be caused by shadowing in the depression of the tear trough, or darkened pigmentation in the skin, or from allergies (commonly called allergic shiners).
If it is truly a pigmentation issue, laser would be helpful, though I am uncertain about the procedure you describe injecting vitamins under the skin and then activating with a laser. I have not read about this technique in the medical literature. If the area is bluish the IPL can be effective. If it is more brown or darker pigment a CO2 or Erbium laser can be helpful.
If volume is the issue, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm , Restylane or Belotero can be an easy fix.
I would be hesitant to recommend a blepharoplasty on someone your age unless there was a definite problem with fat or redundant skin under the eye.
I would recommend evaluation by a board certified facial plastic, plastic or oculoplastic surgeon who can give you a good opinion on the best treatment.
