Thank you for sharing your photos and questions.
I think your best option is surgery (and I know this is not what you want to hear!!!)
The bags under the eye show some of the fat in your eye socket is bulging out (more on your right eye than the left). The best way to treat the herniated fat is with surgery. This surgery is usually done through the inside of the eyelid (so there are no external scars). Laser to improve the skin will help with skin texture and tightness. It can be done in conjunction with the surgery for the herniated fat. In my opinion, laser to the lower eyelids, by itself will not full address your bags.
Surgery will give you a longer lasting result, with better improvement than other procedures.
Eye bags and fat herniation are part of the normal process of aging. Some people have more propensity to develop eye bags (because of genetics and anatomy). If you are having symptoms of allergies, such as runny nose or itchy eyes, you should consider getting tested for allergies. However treating your allergies will not reverse the eye bags.
Another option would be to do filler injection to the lower eyelids. Filler is temporary (you usually need to redo it every 3-6 months). You can camouflage the eye bags by using the filler. It will smooth the area under your eye and can give you a very nice improvement. You can consider doing the filler and the laser for your lower eyes to avoid surgery.
Hope this helps.
Consult a surgeon in your area
Lower blepharoplasty with fat grafting
Surgery continues to be a very important option.
Lower eyelid bags
Under eye bags
Looks like you have prominent under eye fat pockets. Fillers alone to fill underneath the fat pockets (along the infraorbital rim) may be sub-optimal. You may require lower lid surgery though. You should seek a consultation with a plastic surgeon that has extensive experience with eyelid surgery for your options. Best of luck.
Under eye treatments
There are different laser resurfacing options that can help improve the appearance if you are not ready for a surgical procedure. To be sure what is best for you, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment.
I hope this helps.
