THE PERFECT SOLUTION
It can be quite daunting to have a gummy smile, where you notice it every time you look in the mirror. A gummy smile is when the upper lip is stretched out over your teeth to then show as a line rather than your normal full lips.
Anti-wrinkle treatments can be injected into the right places to allow your muscles to relax so that your upper lip appears more when you smile!
Now you’ll have nothing to be self conscious about – let yourself smile!
Contact us today to book in for your bunny lines treatment at our Aesthetics Clinic in Birmingham.
Bunny lines are the fine lines that appear on either side of your nose, usually in horizontal lines, these appear when you wrinkle your nose.
When you repeatedly use the same facial expression, over time these wrinkles will appear.
A chemical is used to inject bunny lines. Once this chemical has taken it’s effect on your muscles, it temporarily blocks signals from your nervous system which normally would tell your muscles to move.
The serum will relax the muscle surrounding your nose, which leaves you with smooth skin – no bunny lines!
After you’ve had your treatment, you may notice some stinging or slight bruising where the needle was injected. These effects are temporary and will subside.
Anti-wrinkle injections can take several days to take effect, don’t worry if nothing happens in the few days after your treatment. This is normal.
