Botox for Bunny Lines in Birmingham
MULTI AWARD WINNING LUXURY AESTHETIC CLINIC
Bid Farewell to Bunny Lines with Botox:
Bunny lines, those subtle wrinkles that appear on the sides of the nose, often make an appearance when you smile or scrunch your face tightly.
While these lines may be a testament to moments of joy and laughter, they can also become more pronounced with age, hinting at the passage of time.
Understanding Bunny Lines and Their Treatment:
As we age, fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of life.
The extent and timing of their arrival are influenced by a combination of genetics and lifestyle factors. Dynamic lines, as they are known, develop as a result of repetitive muscle movements, most notably on our faces when we engage in various facial expressions. These are the lines we target with anti-wrinkle injections.
Botox, scientifically known as Botulinum toxin type A, is a purified neurotoxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This remarkable substance works by blocking muscle impulses, effectively limiting muscle movement. The clinical-grade cosmetic Botox used at Secret Aesthetics is a prescription-only medication, meticulously extracted and purified from the original paralytic agent. Once injected, it temporarily weakens the contraction of the targeted muscle, leading to the softening and relaxation of lines and wrinkles caused by underlying muscle activity. While there’s currently no reversal agent for Botox, the body naturally breaks it down over several months, gradually restoring muscle movement.
The concept behind Botox treatment is to reduce muscle movement in overactive areas, allowing the skin to rest and recover. This process softens and eventually fades skin creases and wrinkles. The treatment is highly customisable, with adjustments in dosage and treatment frequency based on individual preferences. In the initial years, more frequent treatments may be necessary to “re-educate” the muscles.
The Importance of Early Intervention:
We recommend considering Botox before your dynamic lines transform into deep static lines—those that remain present even without expression.
The ideal timing varies from person to person and depends on factors such as genetics, lifestyle choices, and sun exposure. In essence, the earlier you start, the easier it is to correct and completely smooth out these lines, even with multiple sessions.
Botox can also serve a prophylactic role, preventing wrinkles and fine lines from becoming deeply etched into the skin. This is especially beneficial for those with a genetic predisposition.
The Botox Procedure at Secret Aesthetics:
Your journey towards smoother, wrinkle-free skin begins with a comprehensive consultation, where our doctor conducts a facial analysis and reviews your medical history and aesthetic expectations.
The treatment itself involves precisely controlled doses of Botox administered intramuscularly across the targeted areas using a microneedle. While the procedure is typically not painful, you may experience a slight stinging discomfort. Depending on the number of areas treated, the entire procedure is usually completed within 15 minutes.
Possible Side Effects of Botox:
Following the procedure, you may experience tenderness and temporary redness in the treated area, which typically subsides within 72 hours.
Some individuals may notice a headache, usually resolving within 48 hours.
Bruising at the injection points is usually minimal but can vary from person to person. To minimise this risk, we conduct a thorough medical evaluation and recommend limiting alcohol intake for 48 hours before and after the procedure to aid recovery.
Your Botox Results:
Results from Botox treatment for Bunny Lines typically become noticeable within 4 to 10 days.
If the desired outcome is not achieved within 14 days, additional treatment may be necessary. These results generally last between 3 to 6 months. In the initial stages of treatment, you may observe some muscle movement returning after one month, which is normal. This timeframe varies from person to person and may necessitate adjustments in future Botox doses. With consistent treatments over several years, clients often find they require less frequent touch-ups.
Aftercare for Botox:
To maximise the effectiveness of your Botox treatment and ensure lasting results, we recommend the following:
– Avoid lying down for at least 4 hours to prevent Botox from migrating into the eye orbit and causing eyelid drooping. After this period, you can rest or sleep in any position.
– Refrain from touching, applying makeup, massaging, or rubbing the treated areas, including facials, for 12 hours.
– Avoid exercise for 24 hours.
– Steer clear of extensive sun exposure and heat, such as hot showers, saunas, and steam rooms, for 48 hours.
– Abstain from alcohol for 24 hours.
Please wait at least 7 days before considering chemical peels, laser treatments, or microdermabrasion.
Other treatable areas with Botox include:
Forehead Lines – Also known as ‘Horizontal lines’ are lines which appear and eventually become permanent from repeated raising of the eyebrows.
Frown Lines – Lines in between our eyebrows. As the name suggests, they become apparent when frowning. Also known as the 11 lines or glabellar lines
Eye bag Wrinkles – Creases seen underneath and around our eyes more medial than crows feet. This treatment is often complimented with our 3-in-1 Eye Rejuvenation or with Crows Feet treatment
Cobblestone Chin – Ever noticed a bumpy uneven texture to your chin when you’re lifting your lips? Try pursing your lips together or pouting. If you notice dimpling of the skin that is bothering you, Botox can be injected to smooth the skin texture out
Bunny Lines – Wrinkles seen on the sides of the nose, often when smiling or scrunching your tightly.
Gummy Smile – The effects of a strong levator labii muscles, causing gums to show when smiling.
