What are Bunny Lines?
Bunny Lines are the tiny wrinkles that can appear on either side of the nose. These fine lines get their nick-name from similar wrinkles that rabbits will develop from continuously twitching their nose. Located between the eyes, on either side of the nasal bridge, Bunny Lines are the result of age and repetitive facial expressions, such as squinting or smiling. These wrinkles can be vertical, horizontal, or even run diagonally down either side of the nose. Either way, they will appear in the same place on either side of the nose.
Botox – Both a Cause and Cure:
Although Bunny Lines can be caused by years of facial expressions, in some cases they are a clue of something else. They can be a side effect of Botox use, and occur for several reasons. For one thing, when Botox Cosmetic provides a smooth forehead and eradicates Frown Lines, more emphasis may be put on the remaining wrinkles by the nose, which simply did not draw as much attention before. Additionally, the paralyzing abilities of Botox may put the surrounding facial muscles harder to work. In some individuals, the muscles by the nose will be used more once other areas of the face have been treated with Botox, thus leading to noticeable wrinkling.
Botox Cosmetic can wipe out dynamic facial creases, including Bunny Lines. Botulinum Toxin Type A works well for those pesky fine lines around the nose. Botox will temporarily weaken the Procerus muscle, giving these wrinkles a chance to smooth out and relax. After several small, carefully placed Botox Cosmetic injections, Bunny Lines will retreat for up to three months.
