Word of mouth
Now my brother who is 3 years younger than me also has prominent eye bags. His cause however is not due to strong muscles but loss of fat between his eye bag area and the side of his nose. Botox is not need, but I placed some dermal filler ( I used Juvederm, but one can use Perlane- Restylane).
Bottom line- you need a good assessor and some one who can perform all procedures - as this area can be technically challenging to get just right.
All the best

How to Find and experienced injector
Finding An Expert & Experienced Physician Filler Injector Anywhere
The following are some suggested general recommendations for finding a suitable injector, with the understanding that there are always exceptions to any rules
First, it might be wise to avoid non-physician injectors and med-spa injectors who might not be under the tight supervision of the titular "medical director" of the spa..
Stick to only board certified aesthetic core physicians: i.e. cosmetic dermatologists, plastic surgeons, ophthalmic plastic surgeons, ENT plastic surgeons, etc.
It might also be prudent to exclude non-core (non-aesthetic) physician injectors, i.e. podiatrists, dentists, nurses, PAs, gynecologists, cardiologists, breast surgeons, etc. i.e. those who have likely learned a few basics--like Botox for scowl lines and Restylane for smile lines--at some one or two day didactic sessions and who are trying to grab a slice of the aesthetic pie by setting aside a few hours a week outside of their fields to aesthetics around and between their regular medical practices.
Be wary of those given to heavy advertising and marketing and those making what may sound like "too good to be true" promises or guarantees of results.
Ask a trusted family physician or internist for recommendations
Check with your local county medical society for the names of several nearby board certified aesthetic physicians, and then consult with and vet them. Be sure to ask to see their before and after photos specifically of patients of theirs whom they have injected under the eyes.
Don't brush aside any gut feelings in helping you to determine your level of confidence and trust in a particular physician.
Finally, don't forget that you must "wear" your face all the time, so if it turns out that you need to travel a bit for the proper treatment, in this day and age, traveling outside your city to be treated by the right doctor is not such a big deal and is done all the time by so many people that, if my own practice is any indication, it is more the norm these days than the exception.
I wish you the best of luck.

I would see Dr. Wayne Carey or Dr. Arthur Swift. Both have a great deal of experience.

So, I know a lot of folks out there are injecting Juvederm or Restylane in this area, but I personally prefer Voluma or Lyft (off-label use). Why? In the deep plane, it lasts the longest and is the best investment, gives the most natural results by "building up" the deficient malar bone, draws in less water than the others, so your results at the end of the treatment are your end results, and some other reasons. That being said, I only know of a couple people injecting this product the way I do it, although more articles are starting to come out. If you're in New York some time let me know. I have someone I trust I could refer you to, to do it right.
Eye Injections and Experienced Injector
The best way to find an experienced injector is to see their qualifications and ascertain if they are injecting on a daily basis. Both Belotero and Restylane are great injections for the under eye area. Best, Dr. Green
