Yes, you appear to be young. Getting 1 cc of Juvederm in this area would probably go a long way.
You may also consider adding a filler to your cheeks. This also can give a subtle lift to the nasolabial folds.
To see what might be 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 these treatments.
I hope this helps.
Volumizing Fillers Are An Ideal Treatment For Early Nasolabial Folds (Smile Lines)
The smile lines in the photos provided do not appear to be particularly deep and would likely respond nicely to a half of a syringe for each side. It is important to be sure that NO attempt be made to erase the smile lines entirely (even young children have them) since that could result in a strange-looking appearance that has been termed the expressionless "simian" (monkey-like) look.

Also, despite the fact that several plastic surgeons answered this question with "see a plastic surgeon", cosmetic dermatologists usually have more experience with fillers than plastic surgeons. Plastic surgeons can also do a great job, but only if they spend a good amount of their day perfecting their injection technique rather than doing surgery most of the time. You are also more likely to have their nurse inject you when you go to a plastic surgeons office than have the surgeon do it.
