Bunny lines are fine lines and wrinkles appearing diagonally on both sides of the nose resulting in a “bunny-like” appearance. If you are wondering how to identify bunny lines, just scrunch and see lines appearing diagonally on both sides of your nose.
The lines begin near the eye corner extending downwards and inwards/horizontally on your nose. Bunny lines are most noticeable when a person crinkles their nose during a smile or laugh.
Bunny lines can be traced to three main causes. They include;
Individuals who repeat certain facial expressions tend to form bunny lines. There is a link between wrinkling and facial expressions. Individuals who are very expressive (have distinct facial expressions) tend to get facial wrinkles over time as their skin adjusts to certain repeated movement and muscle contractions.
The same way crow’s feet form after decades of smiling is the same way bunny lines form after years of a repeated contagious laugh.
Bunny lines can also form as part of natural aging. This is true, especially when they form later on in life.
Injectables are a popular solution to wrinkles. However, when the wrong injectables are administered, or professionals aren’t involved, injectables can cause wrinkling. Some studies suggest that injectables can cause wrinkles.
Bunny lines can make someone self-conscious about how they look, resulting in many other problems like low self-esteem and stress as you find ways to hide the lines. So, how do you stop bunny lines from forming?
If you’ve witnessed the misery that comes with unwanted facial wrinkles, you may want to be proactive about the issue. Luckily, there are methods you can explore to prevent bunny lines.
Since exaggerated facial expressions when laughing and smiling are leading causes of bunny lines, you may want to consider conscious expressions. You can avoid crinkling your nose or scrunching when you laugh to avoid bunny lines from forming faster than they should.
It is possible to be as expressive and/or animated as possible while taking inventory of natural facial expressions. Knowing you make exaggerated facial expressions is a good starting point for practicing relaxed facial expressions.
Since bunny lines are wrinkles and a common cause of wrinkles is loss of elastin and collagen (structural protein in the skin), engaging in habits that slow collagen and elastin loss can help.
For instance, avoiding overexposure to sunlight and practicing healthy habits like sleeping enough, and avoiding cigarette smoking can help slow down collagen and elastin loss, slowing down the natural wrinkling process.
Simple habits like applying sunscreen and sleeping 7 to 9 hours daily can avoid indirect triggers of wrinkles like stress and UV radiation.
While you can use the above information to slow down formation of bunny lines, what should you do when they appear? One of the most important effective bunny lines treatment is Botox/Xeomin.
Botox injections work by halting facial muscle movement. By administering Botox around the nose on lines/wrinkles that contribute to the formation of bunny lines, these lines reduce in appearance or disappear completely. Botox is approved by the FDA in the treatment of various health problems making it a safe treatment.
While Botox is an effective treatment for facial wrinkles, including bunny lines, there is a better alternative – Xeomin.
