Botox for undereye crease
I consider this a slightly more advanced Botox treatment and so I recommend you go to someone who does it frequently.
Botox under the eyes
Lower eyelid muscle hypertrophy and crepey eyelid skin
Your eyes are beautiful and deserve to shine! The Botox appears to have raised your lateral brow nicely framing your upper lids, lashes and blue colored eyes distinctively.
While the lower eyelid muscle thickening does not bother me, it does bother you. Botox may thin or atrophy the muscle but then you are left with thin skin. Consider a lower eyelid blepharoplasty to properly frame the lower half of your eyes and achieve the look you want.
A caveat, lower eyelid surgery is performed by many but achieving the best results is performed by few. Please consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Ophthalmologist who has the experience, skills and talent to evaluate and perform the correct procedure(s).
All the best!

Did this exist prior to botox?
A combination of Belotero, Botox, and eMatrix will solve this problem. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Microdroplet Botox May Help For Under Eye Muscle Hypertrophy & Crinkles
You would do well to discuss this with the physician who injected you. If he/she is not comfortable or familiar with this more advanced injection technique, then you might be wise to seek consultation with a board certified aesthetic physician with expertise and experience in the advanced uses of Botox (and other muscle relaxants).
Good luck to you
