Bunny lines, named for the bunny’s characteristic nose twitch, are lines and wrinkles that appear at the top of the nose as we age. The board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology commonly treat patients who wish to diminish the appearance of bunny lines with Botox injections.

What are Bunny Lines?

bunny linesBunny lines are fine lines and creases that develop on the top portion of the nose. They are nicknamed “bunny lines” because they resemble the wrinkles that form on a bunny’s nose when it twitches.

The presence of bunny lines differs greatly from one person to the next. Some people hardly notice them with fine lines only appearing on the nose when it is scrunched. Others, however, have noticeable bunny lines that are visible with common, everyday facial expressions.

Botox for Bunny Lines

Patients who are bothered by the deep bunny lines on their nose should schedule a consultation with the expert injectors at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology to see if Botox treatment can help. Onabotulinum toxin A is a neuromodulator that stops nerve impulses from contracting the muscles into which it is injected. When the doctor injects it into precise locations on and around the nose, the muscles causing the bunny lines will stop contracting, resulting in a smoother, more youthful look.

For especially deep bunny lines, patients may experience optimal results through a combination of neuromodulator, laser, and facial filler treatments. Discuss your options with the doctor during your consultation and he/she will develop a treatment plan customized to your unique needs.

Botox for Bunny Lines Frequently Asked Questions

It can be hard to determine which cosmetic treatment will best help you attain your desired results, so our Botox experts at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology have answered some of the most frequently asked questions about eliminating bunny lines to help make the process easier.

Q: Are Botox injections painful?

A: Injections are generally painless, however, the doctor can apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area prior to injection if the patient is concerned about feeling the injection.

Q: How long do the results last?

A: The length of time a patient experiences optimal results from neuromodulator injections depends on a couple of factors. First, it will depend on the amount of units used as deemed appropriate by your doctor. Finally, each person’s body metabolizes differently so individual results will vary. Results typically last between 4 and 6 months and the treatment can be performed again once results wear off.
