Is there anything I can do to get rid of my malar eye bags \ festoons? (photo)

I'm male, 16 years old with incredible malar eye bags. They are not sleep related, so I assume they are genetically related although no one if my family has them as bad as I do. Is there a chance they will get better as I age? Or will aging make them even worse? Eye creams, Rollers, Tea bags haven't helped. Is there anything I can do?

Hi. The dark circles are caused by a groove between your eyelid fat and cheek fat (nasojugal grooves). As you are very young the best way to improve these is using a dermal filler injected to fill up the groove. These are very safe, but are only temporary, lasting 4-6 months. You should always have something temporary first to see whether you like the effect. If you like the effect then there are longer lasting fillers, which can last up to 18 months or so.
