How effective is Botox at treating bunny lines?

I have pretty severe bunny lines/wrinkles on the sides of my nose. I know general fillers are an option to help me with this, but my question is really specific to Botox. Is Botox an option to fix Bunny Lines or is there a better option that I should be considering?

Bunny lines on the sides of the nose are best treated with wrinkle relaxers, such as Botox® or Dysport®, rather than facial fillers. These wrinkle treatment may be considered as part of liquid rhinoplasty or a nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedure. Results develop after several days and last about three months. Recovery is considered minimal after these office treatments. Bunny lines are not treated, however, with surgical rhinoplasty. Read more about Botox and Dysport in link below.

Botox or Dysport is the first treatment option for bunny lines.  The Bunny lines usually improve quite a bit with Botox or Dysport.  But, sometimes the lines are not completely removed.
