I want to know if laser procedures would cure my dark circles (photo)

I am a brown skin toned African American with really dark circles around my entire eye (both eyes). Would laser procedure remove them?

It can be difficult to lighten skin in people with darker skin tones.  When we use IPL or one of the other lasers which can lighten skin, a person with darker skin may actually get darker after the treatment.  You look like you are pretty hollow under the eyes which will make the skin appear darker.  Try putting some filler into this area which should help.
