I have these fine lines under my eyes just above cheek bone. (photo)

It depends on what's causing the lines.
Good question! Lines like these can have a number of causes, including sun damage. Based on your photo, I think you may get good results from laser resurfacing or even a strong chemical peel. Some filler or BOTOX treatments may also help, especially in tandem with resurfacing procedures. As always, be sure you're wearing plenty of sunscreen during the day to keep these lines from getting worse. See a board-certified dermatologist for a more thorough review of your options.

I definitely recommend that you have thorough consultation with a doctor who specializes in non-surgical treatments as the treatments that you will likely need are non-surgical in nature.
I hope that helps and best regards, Dr. Sapijaszko.

Botox and Fillers will not help Facial Fine Lines. Use retinoids, exfolliation, peels, UV protection.
Thanks for sharing your photo. Based on the limited information and picture, I agree with you. Fillers will simply expand the cheek without stimulating an adequate amount of collagen repair. Botox will not help static epidermal fine lines. Below you will read more of the options available. My best recommendation is to seek the advice of a Certified ZO Skin Health Team for proper rejuvenation and maintenance of your skin.
The process of aging is the passive inability for your body’s tissues to repair and regenerate themselves. The act of rejuvenation is to actively reverse and dynamically assist the repair of your tissues on a daily basis. When significant laxity exists, surgical skin and soft tissue redraping or lifting are required.
Facial Aging develops from the 5 different layers of the skin, fat, muscle and bone.
During the first 20 years or so of life, the body genetically determines how to mature and repair a constantly changing “face” including all these layers (as it does elsewhere in the body). Thereafter it remains robust in repairing itself from injury but the accumulation of environmental, health and nutritional exposure will add to the passive inability for the body to care for itself after 30. This is when physical changes such as skin laxity, irregular pigmentation, lines and wrinkles and skin diseases occur. We now have many options to rejuvenate the layer or layers of the face which need care or stimulation to reverse the aging trend.
1. The top layer or stratum corneum of the epidermis is the rough, pigmented layer of the skin; creating most of the depth of the wrinkle.
-Exfoliation is best for this using:
-Retin-A (ZO Obagi Skin Health System), which also renews and regulates improved function of the deeper epidermis,
-Some lasers and chemical peels.
2. The second layer is the dermis which thins with aging. The natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (which hydrate and toughen the skin) are thickened by the use of:
-fillers (Restylane and Juvederm), or
-Retinoids (ZO Obagi Skin Health System), which also renews and regulates improved function of the deeper dermal skin cells.
-Sculptra properly managed is the latest sensation to stimulate firming and thickening of the dermis
-Thermi RF is a non – surgical option. Use ThermiSMOOTH superficially or ThermiTIGHT to tighten THE skin using a micro-invasive technique.
3.The next layer or fat also thins or droops with age and maybe:
-filled (Restylane and Juvederm), fat grafting or
-redraped (threadlift, short-scar, traditional, endoscopic face / neck / brow lifts / cheek)
- LipoContouring of the face and neck with or without fat grafting may provide the balance and contour you seek without general anesthesia.
4. The muscle which creases the skin into wrinkles and folds is weakened and rebalanced with
-Botox or similar injectable muscle relaxers like Dysport or Xeomin.
Chemical peels and laser tightening are single, “static” attempts to “jump” the repair system into collagen formation. They should be performed every 3 months in order to achieve a more dynamic stimulation of the immune system.
Everyone needs one or more layered improvement and in personalized combinations to achieve their optimal result.
All surgical, minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures and their combinations should be discussed following a proper examination with a well versed, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who performs all of these options so you will not receive a biased approach because he limited in his skills.
I hope this is helpful. All the best!
