Fig. 5.57a,b. This patient was submitted to BNT-A in the glabella, forehead and crow's feet. Note that during animation, there is no contraction of the m. nasalis. After blocking the specific muscles, bunny lines appeared due to the blocking of upper third muscles of the face except the m. nasalis
Fig. 5.58a,b. This patient showed bunny lines while frowning, before treatment. In these patients it is recommended that the bunny lines are treated at the same time as the glabella. After injection with BNT-A an improvement in both glabellar and bunny lines can be observed
