Botox: A Simple Solution For Bunny Lines

Do you experience creases on either side of your nose when you smile or laugh? Known as bunny lines, these fine lines and wrinkles can be some of the first to appear on your face as you age. Their appearance may annoy you, making you feel less youthful. For some, wrinkle fillers and creams help ease bunny lines, but there's actually a better, more effective solution: Botox. 

What is Botox?

There are a lot of misconceptions about Botox and what it really is. Botox is not a dermal filler like collagen. And having it injected is not a surgical procedure. Botox is a toxin made by a certain type of bacteria, which when injected under the skin, deactivates certain nerve endings so that the tiny muscles under that part of the skin can no longer contract. When the muscles are relaxed, they take up more space beneath the skin, which eases the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, such as bunny lines.

Why is Botox a good choice for bunny lines?

Botox is a good choice for these lines because it's a treatment that is easy to scale. You only need a little bit of volume added to this area to erase bunny lines, and too much will just make your nose look puffy. A dermal filler, in most cases, would be going too far, and you probably don't want to undergo plastic surgery for this tiny imperfection. It's easy enough to have a doctor inject just a little Botox on either side of your nose. You'll be in and out of the office in under an hour, and there's no significant pain or discomfort associated with the injections.

What results can you expect?

For a day or two after the Botox injections, you can expect the sides of your nose to be a little red and puffy. Since this is such a small area, it's pretty easy to camouflage this with makeup and go about your day. Once the swelling dissipates, you'll notice that the area is smoother and that when you smile or scrunch your nose, you don't get those bunny lines anymore. 

Botox tends to remain effective for about three to six months. When it wears off, you can have another set of injections, if desired.

Bunny lines may be small and localized, but they can really age your look! Talk to your doctor about using Botox injections to ease their appearance.

Preparing for a Stem Cell Transplant

About six months ago, my wonderful father discovered he had an aggressive form of lymphoma. At this time, his doctor informed him he would need to undergo six rounds of chemotherapy. My dad’s physician also told him he would need to have a stem cell transplant immediately after he completed the chemotherapy. To prepare for the stem cell transplant, my father was put on a special diet. His doctor recommended he eat a lot of protein. My dad was also told to drink plenty of water and exercise regularly.
