Bunny Lines Treatment - Adelaide
Bunny lines are the small lines that we all have across the nose. Anti-wrinkle injections can be a very effective way to reduce their visibility.
If you read the phrase ‘bunny lines’ in any other context, you’d probably assume it was referring to lengthy supermarket queues during Easter or something you’d buy in a pet store.
In fact, this cutesy name has nothing much to do with rabbits at all. ‘Bunny lines’ describe straight, slightly diagonal lines that extend from both sides of the nose, beneath the bridge, when someone smiles or laughs. Presumably, they’re named as such because they vaguely resemble a pair of rabbit ears or whiskers.
Like many facial expression lines, they can occur naturally if someone regularly crinkles their nose when they laugh, or through the process of ageing. However, bunny lines can also appear following anti-wrinkle injections.
Frequently Asked Questions
Anti wrinkle injections are a purified natural protein chemically derived from bacteria that can be injected into a muscle to cause temporary muscular relaxation. It can be used to treat the appearance of frown lines, worry lines, and laughter lines. Anti wrinkle injections typically reduces the appearance of wrinkles by about 80%, leading to a more youthful, fresh appearance.
Like all other prescription medicines, if used with precision and accuracy by a trained and experienced individual, like that of Dr Targett. Anti wrinkle injections are a very safe drug, with minimal side-effects and complications.
No, Anti wrinkle injections take between three and 14 days to take full effect.
It is wise to wait until the previous dose has worn off before receiving another treatment. We generally advise a minimum of three months between repeat treatments.
An integral part of the treatment is the consultation. Together, you and Dr Targett, will discuss problem areas, the possible treatments, and any of your concerns will be addressed. We will then require you to sign a consent form and to take pre-treatment photos. Dr Targett will then apply numbing cream to the area. At this stage, she will mark the sites to be injected, and after cleaning the area the treatment will be administered in the form of fine injections. Anti-bruising cream is then applied to the treated area(s).
We understand that many of our patients may be apprehensive about being on the receiving end of a needle, so while we reassure you that this is a relatively painless procedure with minimal side-effects, we do apply numbing cream to the area to be treated beforehand.
It is common to have small raised bumps of skin at the injection site; these may be slightly red and will go down about 20 minutes after the treatment (please feel free to wait in our waiting room enjoying a cup of tea until these go down!).
Bruising at the injection site may occasionally occur; this will resolve quickly.
It is quite common to experience a mild headache after anti wrinkle injections to the face. This can be easily treated with over-the-counter painkillers.
