I have really dark circles /under eye bags, and I am only 21, they are making my life miserable.

What could you suggest that is cost effective and could remove these dark circles?


For the dark circles the treatment is different then for the under eye bags.

For them to be a very prominent feature of the age of 21, there usually has to be a degree of underdevelopment of the upper jaw and orbit, and therefore there is limited to support to the lower eyelids.

In terms of choosing the type of treatment, it is a matter of evaluating the problem in a consultation, because different degrees may be suitable for milder or more substantial intervention. The skin type also matters in the choice of treatment.

Skin treatments for the pigmentation typically involve bleaching agents or laser, whereas the contour problem may need to be addressed with injectable fillers, fat transfer or surgery.
