There are no good non surgical treatments of bags under eyes. The only option would be to use a filler in the nasojugal groove (tear trough) to minimize the appearance of bags under the eyes. Please remember it is not removing the bags, just creating an optical illusion that there are no bags.

(those depressions along the lower orbital rim that cause the skin and tissues above
them to appear as bags) generally form as the cheek descends as we age. While
surgery is one way to correct them, filling them frequently provides an
excellent correction. The filler can be either an off the shelf product or fat
from elsewhere in your body. You need to be careful, however, who injects this
area, as it is very easy to make the problem worse if done by someone without
significant experience. Also, not all fillers are appropriate for this area.
Some absorb water and can worsen the problem. Choose only an Expert Injector.
There are a number of treatments for the bags under the eyelid that are non-surgical. There are the hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm, Restylane and Belotero. These last up to about 12 months. There are a couple of medium term fillers that last up to 2 years and then there is the filler Artefill that lasts at least 5 years. Artefill works very well under the eyes as long as it is injected by experienced physicians.
I hope that helps. Best regards.
Hi Lusong. Without a picture it's difficult to tell what we would suggest for under eye treatments, but if you do not want to consider the surgical route, then perhaps dermal fillers like Restylane would be an option for you. Again, a picture would help clarify the possibilities. You can view patients that have had Restylane injected under the eyes at the link below.
Hard to know exactly what you mean by eyelid bags without seeing a picture. Sometimes a hollow tear trough will make it look like you have "bags". Using some filler into the tear trough will help to make a smoother transition from cheek to lid and make the hollow less apparent.. This will also help to camouflage any excess fat in the lid. For extra skin laser will often be helpful. Make an appt. for a consultation so a surgeon can see exactly what you might need.
experienced artistic plastic surgeons have a variety of procedures, both
non-surgical and surgical, at their disposal to produce excellent cosmetic
results in the appropriately selected patient: temporary fillers, micro-fat
grafts, skin tightening technologies, and blepharoplasties. There is no one best procedure. Each has benefits
and drawbacks and what is beneficial in any particular patient depends on desired outcome and individual anatomy.
Following the advice of anyone who would presume to tell you what to do without
seeing photos and without taking a full medical history, examining you,
feeling and assessing your tissue tone, discussing your desired outcome and
fully informing you about the pros and cons of each option would not be in your
best interest. Find a plastic surgeon that you are comfortable with and one
that you trust and listen to his or her advice. The surgeon should be certified
by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American
Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). You should discuss your concerns
with that surgeon in person.

Sometimes patients present for removal of lower eyelid "bags" or "dark circles" which they think are caused by excess fat bulging below the eye. Many times excess fat is not the cause of this look. In many instances, especially in young woman, volume loss around the eye gives the appear of "bags". Filling areas with dermal fillers such as restylane will correct problem areas like the "tear troughs" and periorbital hollows restoring a smooth appearance to the lower eyelid without surgery. Good Luck
