Bunny lines are wrinkles that appear on the nose, particularly on the bridge of the nose or around the side due to repeated contractions which include frowning or squinting. Bunny lines aren’t visible on everyone’s skin but some people decide to reduce them with Botox if they do have them.
If you have bunny lines and are looking for a potential treatment, this article will discuss the causes of them, how to prevent them, and the possible treatment options we offer for best results.
What Causes Bunny Lines?
Bunny lines can become visible for a number of reasons. They usually become more apparent when we smile, laugh, or squint our eyes. Another common cause of these lines is age. As we age, collagen and elastin present in our skin drastically reduces. This means the face doesn’t easily bounce back from expressions and movement. Finally, genetics is a contributing factor to bunny lines, if your family members have them, there’s a higher chance you will too.
Preventing Bunny Lines
There are a number of ways to prevent bunny lines from appearing or getting worse. You can follow these steps if you haven’t had any treatment or if you have and don’t want bunny lines to reappear.
Keep away from too much sun
UV rays from the sun can damage the collagen in our skin, if we are exposed to it for a long period of time. This then speeds up the ageing process and can result in more wrinkles on the face. It is good practice to wear sunscreen all year round and wear protective clothing when it’s especially hot.
Quit smoking and stay hydrated
Water helps to retain moisture in our skin which promotes elasticity. This results in the appearance of fewer wrinkles. Smoking reduces the circulation and blood flow to your face which prevents your skin from getting all the minerals it needs.
Get plenty of sleep
Lack of sleep and stress both contribute to damaged skin. Skin cells are restored and healed during sleep but are damaged by stress. Getting a quality sleep each night not only prevents stress, but allows your skin to heal from damage that happened during the day.
How Do We Treat Bunny Lines?
As we know, prevention is only helpful before the issue is apparent. In this case, a great solution for bunny lines is Botox. Botox is an injection which relaxes the facial muscles, smoothing out wrinkles or crease lines to create a more youthful look. Botox injections help to reduce facial movement allowing the lines in the face time to ‘heal’. Botox can help more than just signs of ageing in the face but also functional factors such as lifestyle and environment.
