These are wrinkles that result from scrunching up one’s nose while frowning or laughing. These lines are located near the top of the nose and can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal in appearance. Many people feel that having these wrinkles can make them look older than their true age, angry-looking or worried even if they are not. Fortunately, there are treatments available in order to reduce and lighten bunny scrunch lines.
Muscle relaxants are used to weaken overactive nasalis muscles so that the nose can achieve a smoother contour and a rejuvenated appearance. If the repeated muscle movements that cause the wrinkles are prevented, then the lines caused will become less prominent.
At Total Face Group, we have clinics around Melbourne that are dedicated to offering skin treatments such as bunny scrunch treatment to enable patients to look and feel the way they want.
WHO ARE THE POTENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR OUR BUNNY SCRUNCH TREATMENT?
Ideal candidates are those who are concerned about bunny scrunch appearance at the sides of their noses and can be performed on all adults who are in good health.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A Bunny scrunch treatment with us will take just a few minutes in one of our Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Canberra clinics. During the treatment, 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. Multiple injections may be needed depending on the extent and severity of the wrinkling.
Immediately after our bunny scrunch treatment, 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. 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 10 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.
POSSIBLE RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS
After injections into the target area, it is normal to experience redness, bruising, swelling and soreness. These minor side effects will disappear in just a few days and can be concealed with make-up.
