Deep eye wrinkle/crease only when I smile. How can I reduce this with creams? (Photo)

I get this deep wrinkle/crease under my eye when I smile. However it is not really visible if I am not smiling. I have attached two pics to show the difference. Any idea what this is and how I can reduce this with creams? Thanks!

Under Eye Rejuvenation Requires a Combination with fillers, lasers, microneedling/prp

This requires a combination approach. I suggest fillers, lasers, microneedling/PRP for improvement to this area. See an expert for a formal evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer.

Thank you for sharing your question and photographs.  This hollowing and creasing can best be treated with careful placement of a thin dermal filler such as Volbella, Belotero, or Restylane.  Be sure to see an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon in consultation in order to maximize your results.

Improving the eye area when smiling

This can be improved with the combination of Botox and fillers. I use Restylane with blunt cannulas for this. Botox is placed in the crows feet area. RF might be helpful too.
