Known as bunny lines or wrinkles alongside the nose, these creases are typically caused by repeated facial movements in the area. While the name may sound cute, their appearance is nothing like it.
Bunny lines typically appear as straight or diagonal lines that form from either side of the nose. They are usually most noticeable when someone laughs or smiles. To rid your face of these wrinkles, try an anti-aging treatment like Botulinum Toxin (or more commonly known as Botox).
How Do You Get Bunny Lines?
If you have bunny lines, you may be wondering what caused them. Anyone can develop these wrinkles without realizing it. Like most types of expression lines, these creases develop over time due to repeated facial movements, such as wrinkling your nose.
Some people are more prone to developing these lines due to the way they make their facial expressions. For example, some people crinkle up their nose when they smile or laugh. This can cause the bunny lines to become more prominent.
How Can I Get Rid of Bunny Lines?
Unlike other types of wrinkles, bunny lines cannot usually be treated with store-bought wrinkle creams and similar wrinkle reduction treatments. This is because most people will continue to make the same facial movements which prevent the products from working successfully long-term.
The key to reducing the appearance of bunny lines is to target the muscle responsible for creating those wrinkles. Botox in Singapore is an effective way to paralyze or weaken the muscle that causes the noticeable bunny lines.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is a safe and commonly used treatment for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It has been FDA approved since the late 1980s for a variety of conditions, such as strabismus (lazy eye) and blepharospasm (uncontrolled blinking). In 2002, Botox was approved by the FDA for use on moderate-to-severe frown lines that develop between the eyebrows.
Today, Botox is used on areas all over the face to smooth creases. In short, a Botox injection temporarily relaxes the signals from the nerve to the muscle which causes the muscle to no longer contract. As a result, the wrinkle is softened.
How Is a Botox Treatment Performed?
Botox takes just a few minutes to complete and no anesthesia is typically required. During the treatment, a fine needle is inserted into specific muscles which may cause minor discomfort.
If you are hesitant to have Botox because of the fearful frozen and unnatural look, rest assured that this is preventable. If Botox is injected properly and with the right dosage, it provides a naturally youthful look.
Quick tip: Look for a conservative aesthetic doctor in Singapore who has a long track record of providing natural results. Also, don’t forget to get referrals from people who had amazing results such as your friends or even in social media forums who do not mind sharing all the info of their procedures.
The full effects can be seen at least after two weeks. Botox side effects may include temporary bruising, redness of the injection site or headaches that resolve after a few days.
You should not undergo Botox if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or suffer from a neurological disease.
