Hyaluronic acid is used to fill wrinkles and can also smooth out uneven places on the bridge of the nose, making it relatively easy to correct an unwanted bump, for example.
What are bunny lines?
Like frown lines, forehead lines and eye wrinkles, bunny lines are expression wrinkles caused by the activity of the surrounding muscles. The lines often extend from the bridge of the nose to the corners of the eyes and, when they reach a certain depth, may also be visible when the muscles are at rest.
How can bunny lines be treated?
Bunny lines are treated with botulinum injected into the skin or muscle by a doctor using very fine needles. The active substance temporarily reduces the transmission of stimuli from the nerve to the muscle. This relaxes the muscle and the line is smoothed out. Initial results can usually be seen after two or three days. The maximum effect develops five to six weeks after the injection.
How can irregularities on the nose be treated?
It’s possible to make a nose more attractive without surgery. Hyaluronic acid injections in the appropriate places make the nose appear more beautiful and smaller. Visually unappealing characteristics of a nose, such as a plunging nasal tip, a dimple at the tip of the nose or a hump on the bridge can often be hidden effectively.
How soon after treatment can I resume my everyday activities?
The treatment lasts 30 minutes in total (consultation, information, preparation and administration of treatment) and you can then resume your usual activities with no restrictions on your social life. Any needle-entry points that remain visible for a short time can easily be hidden with make-up.
What do I need to be aware of after treatment with botulinum toxin?
You should AVOID the following activities for 24 hours after treatment with botulinum toxin:
- Visits to a sauna or Turkish bath
- Excessive sports activity
- Extreme positions held for a long time (head stands, power yoga)
- Facial massages
- Wearing swimming goggles
What do I need to be aware of after treatment with fillers?
The treatment is generally well tolerated. The doctor discusses possible side effects individually with the client before every treatment. They are generally mild and do not last long. Possible side effects include small, temporary bruises and brief redness or swelling at the injection site. Blood-thinning medicines such as aspirin should not be taken during the week before treatment as this may increase the risk of bruising. We also advise against treatment during pregnancy.
Andrea K.’s treatment outcome
Andrea’s nose had a slight hump before the bridge was treated with hyaluronic acid. It was possible to fill the area between the hump and the root of the nose with hyaluronic acid, and the bridge of the nose is now perfectly straight without requiring surgery. The filler lasts about 1.5 to 2 years before it is broken down and the hump becomes visible again.
