Bunny lines are wrinkles that form along the side of the nose as a result of facial animation and movement.
When someone smile or snarls, the muscles in the nose contract. The overlying skin then bunches up in several different folds which in time can create unwanted ‘bunny lines’.
Botox in this area can reduce these lines and give you a more symmetrical and in turn, youthful glow.
As with our anti-wrinkle injections, we target only the small, specific muscles responsible for the unwanted bunny lines and wrinkles, meaning that your normal facial expressions will remain unaffected and a subtle smoothness can be achieved to restore and retain a youthful complexion.
Results can take two weeks to reach their full effect and then last up to four months. However, this varies depending on a number of factors which will be discussed with you at your consultation.
The injections are virtually pain free and require no downtime as the procedure requires no cuts, incisions or stitches. Many of our patients describe the sensation as a very small scratch from a tiny needle.
We believe that keeping your facial muscles active after the procedure will help the treatment to take effect but try to avoid any unnecessary touching of your face during the 24-hour period directly after your treatment to avoid infection.
We also suggest that you should not consume any alcohol or pain medication immediately after the anti-wrinkle procedure, and avoid air travel for 48 hours. We do not recommend undergoing any electrical rejuvenation treatments in the week following your Botox treatment.
