How to Eliminate Bunny Lines with Botox or Dysport?

Do you get the fine lines when you wrinkle up your nose? Well, they are the bunny lines. The name sounds cute, but it is another type of wrinkle that does not look so nice.

Like crow’s feet, bunny lines show up when you make certain facial expressions. They are not a big concern when you are young. Your skin loses elasticity and bounciness with aging. These straight and somewhat diagonal lines get deeper with age. They hang around your nose even when your face is relaxed. But No worries, Botox and Dysport can help.

How Botox & Dysport Can Help Treating Bunny Lines?

Botox blocks the impulses that make the facial muscles contract. An injectable expert injects it into muscles to temporarily block signals from the nervous system to prevent the appearance of bunny lines.

Dysport is made of the same protein as Botox and equally effectively treats the bunny lines. It has been used in Europe for several years and got FDA approval in 2009. Your injectable expert can guide you regarding how many units of Botox or Dysport you need to eliminate the bunny lines.

How Long Botox or Dysport Last for Bunny Lines?

You can expect the results of Botox or Dysport for bunny lines to last for 3-4 months after the initial treatment. After the multiple sessions, the bunny lines become less and less prominent.

If you wonder what will happen to your expression lines after getting the Botox or Dysport, then don’t worry. When injected by a trained physician, you will be able to smile and display your other typical facial expressions normally.

Some people have the impression that Botox can cause bunny lines. Well, this is somewhat true but read on to understand it better.

How Botox or Dysport Causes the Bunny Lines?

Botox or Dysport does not directly cause bunny lines. But if you had the injectable treatment done around your upper face, you may find it challenging to make certain facial expressions. When you try to force them, it will lead to activating new muscles in your face that can cause bunny lines.

After Care

Treating bunny lines with Botox or Dysport is a minimally invasive procedure with no downtime. However, you will experience a slight numbness or stinging after the session at the injection site. These side effects fade in a day or two.

The treatment is quick, and you can go back to your normal activities immediately afterward. However, it would be best to avoid exercising for a few hours after injections. But within 24 hours, you can resume all your regular activities.

Are There Any Side Effects of Botox or Dysport for Bunny Lines?

Botox or Dysport is entirely safe for most people. There are no potential side effects. Mild swelling, bruising, bleeding, or discomfort is common that subsides in a few days. The severe complications from the treatment are extremely rare.
