Bunny lines are diagonal and vertical wrinkles that appear on the bridge of the nose and on either side of the nose with repeated contractions (squinting and laughing) of the nasalis muscle. Scrunching up one’s nose mimics the action of a rabbit therefore, the horizontal nose lines are known as “bunny nose lines.” These lines can be considered cute until they start to be visible when the face is at rest.
Most people don’t notice these lines as they appear when they are talking or smiling. Bunny nose lines can be a vital part of an expressive face, so softening them, not relaxing them completely, is our goal.
The muscles that create the pulling of these lines, can also pull down the brow and worsen under eye wrinkles. By strategically placing a neuromodulator, these muscles relax for 3 months and disable the bunny nose lines from forming with expressions.
Most common causes of bunny nose lines include:
- Scrunching your nose,
- Laughing, and other
- Facial Movements
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
How to Get Rid of Bunny Nose Lines?
A low dose of a neuromodulator injection into the nasalis muscle can relax the contracting muscles and reduce bunny nose lines. It is important to be treated by an experienced injector because too much of a neuromodulator injection can actually cause more bunny nose lines.
Aside from a neuromodulator treatment, a healthy skincare routine will give you longer lasting results. At the end of the day bunny nose lines are wrinkles, therefore you need to apply skincare products to improve your skin’s elastin and collagen.
