Bunny Lines

What are Bunny Lines?

Bunny lines are horizontal wrinkles that form across the ridge of the nose. People commonly have more than one bunny line; they are caused by everyday facial expressions and as the years pass, they become more noticeable. As we get older, bunny lines tend to form naturally, as an effect of years of smiling, frowning, and forming other expressions with the face.

Bunny’ is a reference to the distinctively wrinkled and twitchy noses of rabbits. It’s endearing when a rabbit twitches its nose, but not so with the unflattering deep wrinkles that are formed when we do it.

Can Bunny Lines be treated?

Yes!

We use a cosmetic injectable that is proven to be effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. It relaxes the muscles in the face, decreasing the amount of facial creases that form – giving patients a smooth nasal bridge.

How does the treatment work?

A series of small injections are administered to muscles around the nasal bridge. These injections block signals travelling between the nerves and the muscle.

This in turn prevents the muscles contracting and stops lines and wrinkles from forming.

What product is used?

We use a product by Galderma called Azzalure – Botulinum Toxin Type

Will it hurt?

You may feel some mild discomfort from the needle but apart from that the treatment is relatively pain free.

How long does treatment take?

Around 10 minutes.

Are there any side effects?

As with all non surgical procedures performed by a medical practitioner, the risks are very low; however there are some side effects that are possible (although there are usually very few from this procedure).

  • swelling
  • bruising
  • bleeding

When will I see results?

You will begin to see results 2-10 days after treatment, and 21 days to see the full effect.

How long do results last?

Results last around 4-6 months. This is when most of our patients come back to see us for a top up.
