Lower eyelid wrinkles
A combination of CO2 laser and Juvederm Voluma would be a good option for you. A small ridge of orbicularis muscle under the lashes is youthful - so I would not recommend taking out tissue - just tightening with Laser. An Oculoplastic surgeon experienced with CO2 Laser and injectibles would be idea. Best wishes with your decision!
A laser might tighten the lower eyelid skin but you are also hollow in this lower eyelid.

Thank you for the question. I would consider use of retin A at bedtime to "prime" your skin and pursue CO2 resurfacing. Good luck!
Tightening loose lower eyelid skin
Thank you for the photographs from different angles! It is likely that CO2 laser would soften the creases beneath your left eye, and it certainly would smooth out skin that has a crepe-like texture. If you still have a true excess of skin at the lower eyelid, you may need further skin removed surgically to improve this area further. I believe you would also benefit tremendously from upper blepharoplasty since you have a visible excess of skin that is folding over toward the upper lash line. In order to decide whether further lower eyelid skin could be safely removed or if CO2 laser would be more appropriate, it is essential to have an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience in both. It is important to closely assess not only the texture and amount of lower eyelid skin, but also the overall tightness of the lower lid. Best wishes for a beautiful result!
