When lines form across the nose bridge and down the sides of the nasal wall, they can resemble the nose and whiskers on a rabbit. Often called “bunny lines,” these nose wrinkles can be a distracting feature and make the face appear unhappy or older. At Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, we offer Botox® for bunny lines to smooth away nose wrinkles for a more pleasant and youthful appearance.
While bunny lines may sound cute, they are not a desirable feature. These wrinkles become more pronounced when smiling or scrunching your face in displeasure. Over time, the lines remain even when your face is at rest. This can create the appearance of disgust or disagreement on your face that can send the wrong message to people around you. To smooth away these dynamic lines, a neuromodulator like Botox is used to target the muscles that create the nose wrinkles.
Get Rid of Bunny Lines
Botox injections work for dynamic lines by relaxing the muscles that cause these lines to form. The neurotoxin in Botox blocks nerve signals to the targeted muscles on either side of the nasal wall. In a few days after Botox treatment, the muscles stop contracting and creating the nasal wrinkles. Your facial muscles can still move as needed, but the nasal wall wrinkles will be smoothed away. The Botox treatment lasts for about 3-4 months before it needs to be repeated to maintain the results.
Botox injections are very safe and require no downtime. Our Botox treatment for bunny lines only takes about 15 minutes to complete. The most common side effects are slight swelling or bruising at the injection site, which will quickly go away in the following days.
Do not let nasal sidewall wrinkles make you look disgruntled or angry. Bunny lines can be gone in just a few days with Botox treatment.
