Smoking is not conducive for healing.

Smoking is not conducive for healing. Although, Many patients smoke and have had treatments with zero negative effects. 

It should not be concerning at this point.

While smoking is an overall health risk, it should not affect a dermatologic procedure such as injectable fillers.
You should be fine.

Smoking and fillers

Smoking in general is not good for wound healing, etc.. But for fillers it usually has no specific impact on treatment.  Best of luck. Always best to ask your treating physician to be sure.

As long as your lower eyelids are not significantly swollen, this should have absolutely no adverse effects on your treatment.
