What Are Bunny Lines And How Can They Be Avoided?

The Bunny ls just a name used to describe wrinkles, lines, or creases between the brows and nose bridge. Sort of like when a rabbit scrunches up its face. Wrinkles and lines are a part of aging for most adults as we age. While there’s no set age to look for these fine wrinkles, lines, and creases in the face or other parts of the bodother factorshat have nothing to do with age. According to the Mayo Clinic, constant sun exposure on your skin, smoking, and pollutants can also play a role in getting wrinkles, lines, and creases.

Although those with fair skin tones are the most likely to get wrinkles, some with darker skin may also be affected. Sometimes, using a cream or serum with a sun protection factor (also known as SPF) or other ingredients, like collagen, can temporarily dissolve the look of fine lines on your skin. However, regardless of what medical advertisers try to tell you, there’s no over-the-counter product that eliminates wrinkles or lines permanently.

One reason is that wrinkle removal aging creams and cosmetics, so they don’t undergo the same scientific medical screening required for pain relievers or other drugs. Also, no matter how much money you spend, the cost or use of unusual ingredients is not a factor in its effectiveness. At best, you may be able to reduce the look of rabbit lines or marionette lines but this would require using every single day.

People who take the time to learn about facial rejuvenation often receive the best results. Many cosmetic practitioners with years of medical training can give advice and perform these procedures in a safe environment. These people take pride in delivering quality to their patients and have nothing to gain from offering a hard sell. They also use modern cosmetic facial treatment techniques and medicine to make the process as painless as possible.

What People Need To Know About Botox, And Other Facial Fillers in Scottsdale AZ

Botulinum toxin type A, better known as Botox, has been around for years.  Although its history dates back to the late 1800s, it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1989 for use in medical procedures.  In facial skin rejuvenation, this substance is injected into the facial muscle where it temporarily stops movement.  It also blocks certain chemical signals from nerves that mostly cause the muscles to contract.  Today, it’s the most popular treatment in cosmetic procedures, as it has few side effects in a small number of patients.

Dysport has some similarities to Botox, as both are a botulinum toxin and are injected into the muscle to reduce neurological function that causes wrinkles, lines, and creases.  The differences between Dysport and Botox are few. These treatments are made by different manufacturers and while some claim Dysport works faster than Botox because it has less protein, this hasn’t been fully verified by medical or surgery professionals.

Juvederm and Restalyne are FDA-approved dermal fillers used in the treatment of bunny lines in Scottsdale AZ. These hyaluronic acids are also natural components of the skin’s connective tissue.  These two treatments are non-invasive, have almost no recovery time, and take just a few minutes.

Radiesse is kind of the new kid in town, as people want to what it’s like compared to the other treatments.  Instead of hyaluronic acid, it’s made from calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres.  This ingredient works with your body’s own collagen to create connective tissue, resulting in a somewhat natural filler for eliminating wrinkles, lines, and creases.

Hyperdiluted Radiesse uses saline solution and Lidocaine with regular Radiesse to create a thinner solution.  Although it works the same as Radiesse treatments, the Hyperdiluted Radiesse treatment results can last up to two years.  Megan uses this product on anyone who’s are a candidate for this hypoallergenic and nontoxic cosmetic option.  It’s also a malleable cosmetic solution that can be formed into the shape of the patient’s preference for maximum results.

Which Botox or Filler Treatment Is Typically Used For Facial Rejuvenation And What Are The Differences between Botox and Dysport?

  • Botox Treatments – laugh lines, bunny or forehead lines, around the eyes, and parts of the lower face.  Patients see anti aging results from these injections, including eliminating bunny lines, wrinkles, creases, and other lines.  The results from these treatments show up roughly 72 hours.
  • Dysport Treatments – upper and lower face, as well as the eye area.  Most patients report seeing treatment results in as little as 24 hours from the time they were injected. Dysport is also good at eliminating wrinkles, creases, and lines. 
  • Juvaderm Treatments – cheeks, lips, mouth, and nose facial areas. While there are several types of Juvaderm (e.g. Voluma XC, Ultra XC) used for different treatment areas of the face, anti aging results and elimination of wrinkles, lines, and creases are typically noticeable immediately after injection.
  • Restalyne Treatments – cheeks, lips, and mouth facial areas.  It can also be used to reduce the appearance of dark circles around the eyes.  While local numbing cream to relax the muscles and skin is commonly used, patients usually recover quickly with visible anti aging results, such as the elimination of lines and wrinkles in a short time span.
  • Hyperdiluted Radiesse Treatments – areas around the mouth and nose, as well as the skin on hands that may have lost elasticity.  Results are immediately visible and include the elimination of wrinkles, lines, and a more youthful look to your skin.

As far as costs go, generally speaking, will vary based on the target facial areas and how often the treatments need to be performed in a year.  Also, keep in mind that most insurance plans don’t cover cosmetic surgery but there are sometimes exceptions.  Here’s a rough breakdown for each facial filler solution from –

  • The cost for Botox runs between $300 and $600.  Treatments are needed every three to six months.
  • Dysport averages somewhere between $325 and 450 per session.  Results are immediate and last around four months.
  • Juvederm injections run about $650 with immediate results that last from one to two years.
  • Restalyne runs between $375 and $700, depending on the number of vials needed for each session.  Also, it may take up to a week to see results but this can vary from one individual to another.  Patients may not need another treatment for another 6 to 18 months.
  • Radiesse in its simple form runs between $650 and $800 per syringe used. Hyperdiluted Radiesse patients may see a difference in as little as three days but sometimes it can take up to a month.

How Long Is The Recovery Time from Botox Bunny Lines Treatment?

Botox and Dysport have almost no recovery time once the treatment is completed.  According to Wexner Medical Center at Ohio State University, it’s best that patients don’t massage or rub the skin treated area for a few days after the treatments.  Those with deep lines or wrinkles may be asked to be cautious about making extreme facial expressions over the next few days after being injected.  However, post-treatment protocol varies by each individual case.  Most patients can resume their normal activity either the same day or 24 hours after the procedure is completed.

Since both Juvederm and Restalyne are noninvasive facial cosmetic procedures, they also have very short recovery times.  However, Hyperdiluted Radiesse can take longer to recover and see results.  If you’re prone to skin bruising, you may want to ask Megan about using the Accuvein laser tool to reduce bruising or bleeding.

On Average, How Long Do The Botox Results Last on your skin? 

Botox and Dysport injections last somewhere between four and five months.  Juvederm and Restalyne patients maintain their anti aging results at an average of nine months. Radiesse can last up to two years, however, this product is expensive compared to most dermal fillers. Sometimes the duration of the treatment depends on the area receiving injections, as well as other individual factors. Those with faint lines or wrinles may be able to go longer before needing another Botox, Dysport or Dermal Filler treatments.

What About Bruising And Other Possible skin related side effects from Botox?

Megan is part of a small group of specialists that uses an advanced technology called Accuvein.  This laser tool allows the person performing the procedure to see a map of each patient’s veins.  Because the face is one part of the body with a vast number of blood vessels, this tool reduces the likelihood of post-injection bruising.  Accuvein also helps to reduce the pain most patients receive after getting dermal fillers or injections.

While Megan works hard to ensure that each patient experiences little discomfort during Botox for bunny lines in Scottsdale.  You can also read her glowing online reviews from real patients.  You’ll see that lack of unnecessary pain is the reason they return and refer others to her clinic.  However, there are some side effects that are normal for anyone.  If you experience pain or discomfort for more than a week (or beyond the estimated healing time) after your injection, consult a doctor immediately.

Some users can expect these temporary side effects  —

  • Botox – skin redness, swelling, numbness, or pain in the mouth area.
  • Dysport – minor pain and swelling on your skin.
  • Juvederm – bumps, itching, swelling, and tenderness of your skin.
  • Restalyne – skin bruising, headache, infection, and swelling.
  • Radiesse – itching, pain, redness, and skin swelling.  Those who’ve received injections in their hands occasionally report a loss of sensation, limited movement, and lumps or nodules.

Is There Anything I Need To Know Before The Botox Bunny Lines Treatment?

Although there are many dermal options for consumers, it helps everyone when the patient is realistic about the results desired.  Most reputable clinicians will not risk their careers by performing a procedure that shows caricature-like results.  A good specialist works with the patient’s natural bone structure and makes suggestions.

What Other Botox and Filler Services Are Offered in Phoenix and Scottsdale?

Lip fillers done by Injections by Megan are meant to give lips a smooth appearance and add natural volume. According to the Cleveland Clinic, lips may flatten or shrink as we age or may change due to smoking, genetics, or prolonged sun exposure.  In the past, collagen was used to give lips a fuller appearance but some patients reported having an allergic reaction.  Today, hyaluronic acid, which works with your natural collagen, is injected into the lips for a youthful look.

Many who have this procedure done no longer worry about lipstick bleeding and the results may last for several months.  One thing most patients like about lip fillers is if they don’t like the final result, the procedure can be reversed.  When done by a trained professional, this procedure won’t damage the lips nor cause an infection.

What is the difference between Botox and Dysport Treatment?

The most significant distinction between Botox and Dysport Treatment comes in the formulations of the cosmetic injectables. Dysport is considerably more diluted and extends fast compared to Botox. This makes it great for larger facial and skin surface areas like the forehead. Botox is considerably more concentrated, making it effective for treating small facial areas and bothersome wrinkles and lines like Crow’s feet.

What Else Do I Need To Know About Getting Facial Fillers Treatment?

Overall, you must be in good health before beginning any procedure.  If you have a medical condition that affects the nervous system, this affects the outcome of your procedure, since you’re having a foreign substance injected into your neuromuscular system.  When receiving any type of medical treatment, you should be honest about your COVID status. If you’re allergic to bacterial protein or any other substance, please reveal this at your first appointment.  You should also note any medications and/or supplements you take regularly.

According to the Mayo Clinic, anyone with a suppressed immune system or taking anticoagulants (blood thinners) should not undergo facial filler treatment. Also, the FDA has imposed age restrictions for various cosmetic procedures.  For instance, you have to be at least 21 to receive a lip filler by any licensed or credentialed practitioner in the States.
