There is nothing more adorable than a soft, cuddly rabbit. The long ears, supple fur, and of course that cute little bunny nose. However, as an adult, no one wants to have those same, tiny wrinkles around their nose, what are lovingly called bunny lines. If your appearance makes your kids suspect that you are the ‘real’ Easter Bunny, the culprit behind your ‘bunny lines’ may actually be your wrinkle-reducing injectable.
‘Bunny Lines’ – a Potential Side-Effect of Too Much Botox
While Botox Cosmetic is a fabulous wrinkle-eliminating treatment, it can come with a surprising side-effect. Used to treat dynamic wrinkles, or those caused by repetitive facial movements, Botox is the number one choice for Crow’s Feet, forehead lines, and Frown Lines. The ‘just-right’ amount of Botox Cosmetic, placed between the eyebrows, will relax the targeted muscles, smoothing Frown Lines for up to three months.
However, if too much Botox is placed in a particular muscle, unexpected changes in the appearance can be seen. Over injecting Botox in the glabellar muscle can cause the face to unnecessarily rely on the surrounding muscles. This then causes ‘bunny lines’ to form along the sides of the nose. If Botox is the cause of your ‘bunny lines’, remember that the injectable will wear off in three to four months, and these frustrating crinkles will once again be gone. Next time, put your trust in an experienced, certified Botox provider.
What if ‘bunny lines’ appear, but you have never had Botox Cosmetic?
It is not uncommon for people to contract the muscles along the top part of their nose while smiling or squinting. Over time, use of the alaeque nasi muscle can cause the tiny ‘bunny lines’ to appear. Luckily, Botox – the possible cause of ‘bunny lines’ in some patients – can also be the answer for these wrinkles occur naturally. Relaxing the offending muscles, Botox can safely put an end to ‘bunny lines’ for up to three full months.
