Treating the under eye area
Wrinkles and botox
Neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are commonly used to treat "dynamic wrinkles"....wrinkles that appear with movement. "Static wrinkles" or wrinkles that are always present require a different treatment. Sometimes minimally invasive Pelleve can be effective (several treatments), but a more permanent solution to crow's feet wrinkles is with CO 2 laser resurfacing. To minimize recovery time, a light laser setting over 1-2 sessions can eliminate the wrinkles and also tighten the skin beneath the eyes.

Combination treatment would be best.
Treatment of the crows feet area with Botox is very satisfying for most patients. Also a few units carefully placed below the lower lids should soften the smile lines below your eyes. From what I can see in the photo, you have some early volume loss below the eyes and combining Botox with a small amount of filler would look fabulous. You mentioned prevention which is wise. Early treatment slows the process before deep creases develop.

Undereye wrinkles and Botox injection
Great question. A small amount of Botox (0.5 - 1 unit) injected into the lower eye lid muscle can reduce the lines that you see with motion. It is an advanced injection technique and I recommend you see an experienced injector for this. It should not be done in someone with a weakened orbiculares oculi muscle. That being said, it can be safely performed in the appropriate patient by the "appropriate" injector. For undereye lines at REST, there are several treatment options including non-ablative and ablative lasers, fillers (Belotero, Restylane) microneedling, energy based skin tightening devices such as Ultherapy and Thermage, certain chemical peels and of course surgery. I always recommend a home skincare regimen which in a young patient like you should include a sunscreen and antioxidant for prevention and a retinol.
