Anti-wrinkle injections using botulinum toxin have been in use since the Carruthers' publication on them in 1992, and the company that makes Botox, “Allergan”, produce 250 vials of this stuff *every minute*, so there is little doubt that the people have spoken - it works!
However, the effectivenes this treatment would produce in your own case depends exactly on the nature of your wrinkles, your age, your skin quality, your general health, and importantly your expectations.
Botulinum toxin is a tool: like any other, it is highly effective when used in the right situation and is useless in the wrong situation. Nothing wrong with screwdrivers, but you can't hammer a nail with them.
If you want to improve wrinkles around your eyes, Botox is generally a first-line approach, and will almost undoubtedly soften and improve those wrinkles substantially. Beware, though, that if you push to use Botox to *eliminate* your wrinkles it is likely you would get a dose that would *also* look unnatural: better is better, but too much looks weird.
Needless to say, stop smoking!
Treatments ae generally done every three months. To get more duration that this generally requires a *lot* higher dose, which means you would be too frozen most of the time. Smaller doses more often is better than bigger doses less often - you will look more natural and you will spend less money.
Hope this helps
