Botox Works Well For Under Eye Crinkles And Horizontal Fine Lines
If found necessary, a small amount of a Belotero Balance, a hyaluronic acid filler with little tendency to cause the unwanted bluish discoloration known as the Tyndall Effect (seen occasionally when other hyaluronic acid fillers are injected too superficially or into very thin skin areas, such as under the eyes). A tiny amount of the latter might be enough to provide sufficient volume to lift and smooth the area. Only an experienced, board certified core aesthetic physician with extensive experience in treating this region in this fashion should be trusted with the job.
Botox for the lower lids
Trust your face to a board-certified facial plastic surgeon or a board-certified dermatologist or general plastic surgeon.

Maybe a little
Lines that close to the eyelid edge can be difficult to treat. Likely a combination of a small amount of filler and some type of laser resurfacing (like fractional CO2) would make a nice improvement. You look young enough that your lower eyelid would have good tone which should prevent the lid from pulling down after laser. Best of luck.
Botox for lines under eyes
The lines you are referring to are right under the eyelashes and they are present at rest. These are "static" lines. Botox works best in reducing "dynamic" lines meaning lines with expression or squinting. However, sometimes there is a "resting tone" to the muscle creating some of these lines. A small drop of #botox may help reduce these lines. It will also make the white sclera under your eye's colored iris show up more which is not a great thing so the pros and cons have to be discussed before proceeding. I do thousands of these injections and I can tell you that you should find someone very experienced. This is an advanced technique.
Botox can be helpful to relax the Banana Roll immediately beneath your lower eyelashes.

Botox and under eye lines
A small amount (tiny) of Botox should correct these under eye lines. I have also found the eMatrix invaluable at helping to reduce these small lines under the eyes. Please consult with a board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic result.
