I am having laser treatment in both eyes next week for glaucoma will this fix the problem?

Loose skin in lower cheeks and under eyes just at an age of 21, what should I do.I can't afford laser treatment, what are the natural alternatives?

Loose skin in lower cheeks and under eyes just at an age of 21, what should I do.I can't afford laser treatment, what are the natural alternatives?
