I am 22 years old and have bad indents under my eyes. Can lasers help improve tear troughs? If so, which lasers?

I am 22 years old and have bad indents under my eyes (not bags). From doing a little reading on this site, I am aware that fillers are recommended most often for treating tear troughs. However, I would feel more comfortable with a laser treatment since I have had positive experiences with lasers in the past. Are there any lasers available to reduce the indents under my eyes?

Tear Troughs and fillers

The tear troughs are a delicate area and no laser can fill in an indent.  The eMatrix laser and Fraxel laser are excellent at helping fine lines around the eyes with Botox.  The only way to fill in these indents or hollows are with fillers. I would suggest you consult a board certified dermatologist about Belotero or Restylane injections in that area.  Please make certain they have a lot of experience with this procedure.
