BUNNY LINES AND BOTOX®
REDUCE WRINKLES ON THE SIDES OF THE NOSE WITH NEUROMODULATORS FOR NEWTON AND THE BOSTON AREA
While some people aren’t bothered by facial wrinkles, others dislike the way lines and creases make them look older or feel self-conscious. For patients who specifically want to minimize the pesky diagonal lines that appear beside their nose when they make certain expressions, the best solution may be “bunny lines BOTOX® ” at the Boston area’s Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics.
WHAT IS “BUNNY LINES BOTOX®?”
Nose-area wrinkles are commonly referred to as “bunny lines” because they appear when you scrunch up your nose—just like a rabbit. These wrinkles are very common and look more prominent when you’re laughing or smiling, but may not be as noticeable when the face is at rest.

Bunny lines on the nose are known as expression wrinkles, which develop over time as you repeat certain facial expressions. Wrinkling your nose or crinkling up your nose when you laugh can cause bunny lines to develop right below the nose bridge. Sometimes having too much BOTOX® in the area between the eyebrows can cause the nasal muscles to overcompensate, which is another way bunny lines can occur.
It can be difficult to prevent nose wrinkles from developing in the first place, since it isn’t realistic to try to avoid scrunching the nose at all—and we can’t prevent the natural aging process. “Bunny lines BOTOX® ” can soften these existing wrinkles and can also act as preventative BOTOX® to limit repetitive facial expression and stop lines from deepening.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR “BUNNY LINES BOTOX®?”
Although skin care products or topical treatments can be helpful, the most effective way of treating bunny lines is BOTOX® , since the nose wrinkles are caused by the underlying muscles.
“Bunny lines BOTOX® ” works the same way as it does for other types of expression wrinkles: It blocks certain chemical signals to temporarily limit the movement of specific facial muscles. A small amount of BOTOX® is injected into either side of the nose to reduce the wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause the skin to bunch up. Results from “bunny lines BOTOX® ” can be seen in a few days and last for three to four months.
WHICH BOTOX® TREATMENTS ARE AVAILABLE ASIDE FROM “BUNNY LINES BOTOX®?”
BOTOX® is used for a variety of other cosmetic concerns in addition to “bunny lines BOTOX® ,” including moderate to severe forehead wrinkles, glabellar lines, and crow’s feet. It can also treat fine lines above the lips, a square jaw, drooping eyebrows for a modest brow lift, a gummy smile, pronounced neck bands, dimples on the chin, and downturned corners of the lips. The injectable can also alter the shape of the outer part of the nostrils and has medical applications for migraines, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and teeth grinding or jaw tension.

BEYOND “BUNNY LINES BOTOX®“: WHICH TREATMENT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR WRINKLES?
Dermal fillers at Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics work by adding volume or plumpness to certain areas of the face as a way of minimizing static wrinkles or enhancing the contours of the face. Along with “bunny lines BOTOX® ,” patients who want to address bunny lines on the face may want to consider skin rejuvenation procedures such as chemical peels and microneedling, which help maintain a youthful appearance and vibrant skin. Using ingredients such as retinol and applying SPF to the sides of the nose can also help to minimize these wrinkles.
