I have deep eye wrinkles, Im very worried since Im only 22. Ive tried many creams and serums but with none of them Ive seen improvement. They show up more when I smile. So, Ive tried to avoid smiling. I also use sun blocker and moisturizer everyday, but since I have polycystic ovaries and I have acne I use gel products, the makeup I use is very expensive of known brands as well. Please help!! Should I start with botox from now?

Botox and Fillers Can Resolve Eye Wrinkles
Relaxing the orbicularis oculi -- which allows the eyes to squint and can cause crow's feet – with a small amount of Botox will allow you to smile and laugh normally without wrinkling. Depending on your particular case, I might also fill in some of the wrinkles under your eyes very lightly with a hyaluronic acid filler, such as Juvederm or Restylane Silk. Consulting with a board-certified dermatologist will allow him or her to evaluate your wrinkling pattern and decide on the best treatments for you.
BOTOX® can help.
First of all, I’m glad to hear you consistently use sunscreen on your face. This is arguably the most important step you can take to ensuring your skin will remain healthy. I am sorry to hear about your concern over premature wrinkles around the eye area, but you are correct in assuming that BOTOX® is likely a good solution. The wrinkles you’re showing in your photos are the result of dynamic muscle contractions that occur when you smile. BOTOX® can help by prohibiting the contraction of the muscles that are creating these wrinkles on the skin. Carefully choose your BOTOX® practitioner. Just because someone has the credentials to inject this product doesn’t mean they’re highly experienced or will deliver the best results. Keep up the use of sunscreen and a healthy skin care regimen, too. This will help keep your skin looking its best.
Botox in your 20's
In my opinion there is nothing wrong with getting Botox in your twenties. Especially if this is preventing you or causing insecurities when smiling. Please do your homework and find a professional in your area.
