Bunnies are undeniably cute. Bunny lines… not so much. While there is nothing wrong with bunny lines, many patients have come in to complain about the appearance of troublesome little wrinkles around their nose. At San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we specialize in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, so naturally we help patients get rid of bunny lines in no time. So how do you get rid of bunny lines?
What Are Bunny Lines?
Before we get into how to get rid of bunny lines, it is important to define what exactly constitutes “bunny lines”. Bunny lines are small wrinkles that go from the inside of your eye to the bridge of your nose. One easy way to see an exaggerated version of bunny lines is to look into a mirror and scrunch up your nose like you just caught a whiff of something smelly. The wrinkles that reveal themselves when you make this face that surround the nose are bunny lines. These lines at first only show up when making this face, but over time may become permanent.
What Causes Bunny Lines?
In most cases, bunny lines come simply from aging. As you age, your skin gets less elastic and loses collagen, making it more susceptible to wrinkles. These wrinkles form in areas that are the home to constantly contracting muscles under your skin, creating permanent reminders of the gesture. So if you scrunch your face up a lot, you may develop bunny lines.
A more rare cause of bunny lines are Botox injections to other areas of your face. Botox works by freezing the muscles in a target area of your face, and this can cause the surrounding muscles to work harder when you attempt to make certain facial expressions. So if you get Botox in another area of your face, bunny lines may appear from the strain of trying to frown with just your nose.
What Gets Rid of Bunny Lines?
While in some cases Botox can cause bunny lines, it also happens to be the most effective way to treat bunny lines. However, the main difference is that the Botox will directly target the bunny lines, with injections going into either side of the nose. If you visit a Botox professional, they can get rid of your bunny lines without any collateral damage to any other part of your face.
