BUNNY LINES

BUNNY LINES

‘Bunny lines’ are the wrinkles that form on the side and upper part of the nose. Contractions of the underlying muscle also known as the nasalis is to blame for the appearance of these fine lines. These lines include dynamic or static wrinkles. When we form a facial expression, the muscles contract and causes the skin to follow, making up dynamic or ‘movement’ wrinkles. Static or ‘at rest’ wrinkles develop due to the gradual breakdown of elasticity within the skin as it follows the muscle.

Botulinum toxin injections into the affected area can help diminish the nasalis muscle’s hyperactivity.
