I'm 20 and have big bags under my eyes since I was 7. What are my best options? (Photo)

Any topical, non-surgical treatments are temporary, at best. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can fix bags, dark circles, droopy eyelids, and tear trough issues.
Dark Circles, Eyelid Wrinkles/Bags -- Restylane or Belotero, Clear+Brilliant/Fraxel, Eclipse Micropen, Viva/Intensif
It looks like you have some fat loss under the eyes.Your bags can be treated with lasers, fillers, microneedling/PRP and skin care. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Bags under eyes
Lower eyelid bags
At your young age, your lower eyelid "bags" are hereditary. They are the result of prominence of the lower eyelid fat pads. Given you good skin tone and texture, you can consider hyaluronic acid (i.e. Belotero, Restylane) filler to the tear trough (just below the "bag") but this is not a permanent solution and runs the risk of making things looks worse. You need to find someone experienced in injecting this region of the face. Injection in this are is off-label. You would have the best, most long-lasting result if you considered surgery. You are a great candidate for a transconjunctival (incision inside the lower eyelid) blepharoplasty with conservative excision of fat. This would lead to the most natural-looking results. Good luck!
