Botox for Bunny Lines
Bunnies are cute, but bunny lines on your nose are not always welcomed. These diagonal or straight lines across the bridge of the nose can appear due to aging or other causes, affecting your appearance. The best way to smooth away these lines without surgery is Botox® injections. Our cosmetic dermatology team at LM Medical NYC offers Botox for bunny lines at our upscale clinic in Manhattan.
What Causes Bunny Lines?
Bunny lines, or nasal sidewall wrinkles, like most lines and wrinkles, can be caused by lost elasticity in the skin due to aging. When you laugh or scrunch up your nose, you may have lines that appear as the skin and muscle moves. Over time, the skin loses elasticity, and these “bunny lines” are permanently etched in place, even when the face is relaxed.
In some cases, bunny lines can become more noticeable or pronounced in people who have had Botox injections for the treatment of frown lines or the “11’s” between their brows. When the brow muscles are relaxed, the nose muscles may be more expressive or noticeable. Ironically, the best way to smooth the bunny lines is not with less Botox, but differently placed injections to relax the muscles on either side of the nose.
Botox injections can be used to eliminate nasal sidewall wrinkles in a quick procedure at our clinic. World-renowned dermatologist Dr. Morgan is one of the leading experts in Botox cosmetic treatments, ensuring the best results for our patients. The treatment can be performed in less than a half hour with no downtime required, and results can last 2-4 months.
