In my opinion, Juvederm is not an ideal lower eyelid filler.
I do not think that you should have a CO2 laser resurfacing. This is really not an ideal method of firming the lower eyelid skin. In my opinion, I would start by having the excess filler removed.
Hope this information is helpful.
Loose skin in lower eyelid
Proper evaluation of each individual patient is required before a specific treatment modality can be recommended. Some patients could benefit from skin excision, while other’s could get an undesirable result from that. Some patients require a skin resurfacing with Laser, while others could get some pigmentary or other healing issues. In your particular case, with your prior history, most likely you could be a candidate for CO2 laser resurfacing of your lower lids. Make sure you seek out an experienced blepharoplasty surgeon that could properly evaluate and treat you.

'Loose wrinkly skin' on lower eyes, what to do?
-Botox stops the muscles from moving, so when you smile or animate your face, the area under the eyes does not appear 'wrinkly'.
-Juvederm or other fillers are great to fill in the transition area where the eyelid skin becomes cheek skin, camouflaging the 'bags' and makes the eyes appear less tired.
- You mentioned your had a lower bleph (lower eyelid procedures), I assume they removed some of the protruding fat under the eyes, this further makes the eyes appear less tired.
- The best option for the 'crepey' skin is to perform some kind of resurfacing procedure, what that does is remove part of the top layer of skin- the epidermis- and stimulates it to regenerate with newer tighter, less crepey appearing skin. The deeper you go with the resurfacing, the better the results. I usually perform a CO2 laser resurfacing of the lower eyelids for the best results. I do tell my patients that there is about a week of downtime, with some peeling of skin, like with a sun burn, but the results are wonderful.
