What can I do to rid myself of under eye bags that I got genetically? I am only 21 (Photo)

My mother and I both have bags underneath our eyes (hers are much more noticeable). She has been struggling for years to find a solution and I want to do anything I can to prevent mine becoming that bad when I get older. What non surgical treatment would you recommend for both of us?

Eyelid Surgery

Thank you for your question. Non-surgical treatments include one of a few different fillers. Please keep in mind that non-surgical treatments are temporary and can allow you to test drive an improved appearance. I suggest that you consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon. Best wishes,

Dark Circles, Eyelid Wrinkles/Bags Treatment -- Restylane or Belotero with Cannulas, Clear+Brilliant, Eclipse Micropen, Viva

Laser, fillers, microneedling/PRP will give improvement without surgery. Lower blepharoplasty could be a permanent solution. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Under Eye Bag Treatment in a 21 yo

In reviewing your pictures, you are a beautiful young lady.  You appear to have a depression in the transition point from your eyes into the cheek region.  This is creating a shadow or bag underneath the eye.  This area can be smoothed and improved with filler treatment.  I would start with a non-surgical option given your appearance and age.I hope this helps.  


From your photos I think skin tightening would work best. We've had success using radio frequency tightening (Thermismooth) but it might take several treatments. 
Good luck,
