Dark Circles, Eyelid Wrinkles/Bags -- Restylane or Belotero, Laser C02/Erbium Resurfacing, Microneedling, Viva/Intensif, Fraxel

These dark circles needs a combination of lasers, fillers/PRP, microneedling, and skin care.  The hollows do best with fillers if you are looking for a noninvasive approach.  Surgery can remove the bags but will not address the hollows unless you reposition the fat.  See an expert for options.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Baggy eyelids

Old fashioned lower blepharoplasties either by a transcutaneous or conjunctival approach should work very well for you.

Under eye area

If you are looking for a more permanent solution then you want to consider a lower blepharoplasty.  This surgery will contour the lower lid/under eye area revealing a smoother, more youthful look.  Visit with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss your surgical goals and obtain pricing, as pricing varies by surgeon and region.  Best wishes.
