In brief: Varies by cause

Dark circles under the eyes can be caused by brown pigment in the skin, thinning of the skin so that the blood shows through, or by the shadow cast by a "bag" under the eye, or by a combination.
The skin can be lightened by microdermabrasion and skin lighteners. The bag can be surgically improved with a lower lid blepharoplasty. Not much to offer except concealer for thin skin. Good luck!
