‘Bunny lines’ refers to the straight, slightly diagonal lines, that run either side of the upper end of the nose, when someone smiles, laughs, or ‘crinkles’ their nose. Over time, due to repeated muscle contractions, and as the aging skin loses collagen and elastin, these bunny lines may also occur at resat. Bunny lines are very easy to treat. Through the use of small amounts of wrinkle relaxants into the muscles on either side of the nose, bunny lines can be significantly improved, or even eliminated altogether.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
A full facial and medical assessment will be carried out prior to treatment. A local aesthetic can be applied before injections, the injections for this area generally take a few minutes
The muscles to each side of the nose called nasalis muscles are injected with a muscle relaxant. It works by blocking the nerve signals going to the muscles, resulting in a controlled weakening. As the muscle relaxes, the affected skin becomes smoother and the bunny scrunch lines fade away. The muscle relaxant is delivered through a thin needle directly into the nasalis muscles.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD?
Patients can resume their normal activities since there is little affect to the treated area with no downtime. Muscle relaxant injections continue to become a famous “lunchtime rejuvenation” option for those seeking for a quick change in their appearance without worrying about the recovery period.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Within a few days, significant relaxation of the muscles at the sides of the nose and a smoother appearance can be observed. The full results take effect within 14 days and lasts for 3 to 4 months. Patients need to undergo periodic injections after the effect of the muscle relaxant wears off to maintain their rejuvenated appearance.
