Is there a way to get rid of the lines under my eyes? (photo)

I am 18 and I have two lines under both of my eyes that have recently shown up. Is there a way to fix them, or prevent more? I feel like I am to young to have wrinkles, are they wrinkles or is it something else?

Bye-Bye Under-Eye Lines

In my practice I do a significant amount of Co2 and nonablative laser (ie fraxel) to the lower eyes along with skin care and fillers. I suggest you see an expert for evaluation.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Lines under the eyes

Dear torsca:

Looking at your photos, I would recommend a combined approach a good skin care regime which includes use of daily moisturizers, sunscreen, maintenance topical retinols; chemical peels and last but not least tear trough filling with Teosyal Redensity II.  Hope this information helps.

This can be improved with good skin care. A Retin A, sunscreen, and a good eye cream with growth factors. Chemical peels are also helpful. Dermal fillers +/- Botox can help after these measures are tried for about 6 months.
