Bunny lines are the small diagonal lines that appear across the nose when one scrunches up their face. Similar to crow’s feet, these lines are caused by repeated facial movements and expressions, particularly those involving the upper-third of the face, such as the eyes and eyebrows.
Causes of Bunny Lines
Bunny lines are often the result of lifestyle and environmental factors. Poor skincare habits, such as neglecting to moisturize or failing to protect the skin from harmful UV rays, can cause premature aging and the appearance of bunny lines. Smoking is another factor that can worsen bunny lines, as it accelerates the aging process and reduces the skin’s elasticity. Some cases may be due to increased activity of the nasalis muscle when trying to make a frowning expression if the other muscles of the upper face have been frozen due to high strength injections of Botox. However, this is an easy fix.
Treatment Options for Bunny Lines
If you’re concerned about bunny lines, there are several effective treatment options available. The best option to start with is to use Botox, which can temporarily relax the muscles responsible for the bunny lines and prevent them from becoming more prominent.
Preventing Bunny Lines
Preventing bunny lines is always better than treating them. To prevent bunny lines, you can use a high-quality moisturizer and protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays with strong SPF and antioxidants can also help prevent the development of bunny lines. Avoidance of smoking and a healthy diet is also a good way to look after yourself and your skin.
