Anti-wrinkle injections, like Botox, are one of the most popular anti-ageing treatment options available. And they are also one of the most effective procedures too. From frown lines and crows feet, anti-wrinkle injections can help to reduce the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles, and also help to prevent them from forming altogether. One of the lesser known treatment areas involves the side of the nose, reducing the appearance of bunny lines. But what are bunny lines? How are these caused? And what are the advantages of Botox for bunny lines? Well, here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, anti-wrinkle injections are our specialty. As Preston’s leading aesthetic practitioners, we offer a range of anti-ageing treatments and aesthetic procedures, including dermal fillers and dermaplaning.

What are bunny lines?
So, first of all, what exactly are bunny lines? Well, bunny lines are small lines and creases at the side of nose, between the eyes. These are usually two straight lines, that resemble rabbit ears or whiskers, and point up towards the eyes.
What are the causes of bunny lines?
Bunny lines can be caused by a number of different things, including:
Natural expression – if you are prone to wrinkle your nose when you smile or laugh, its likely that these bunny lines will appear when you do so. Frequently repeating this expression, can in time, lead to more permanent lines appearing, as you age. This is because the skin loses volume and elasticity, as part of the ageing process, so may not return to its original position fully, leaving small lines behind.
Forehead Botox – if you have had frequent anti-wrinkle injections to tackle frown lines on your forehead, you may now notice these bunny lines that have appeared on your nose, pointing up towards your eye. These appear because while Botox can relax your forehead muscles, the other muscles in the face will still move to form expressions. And this can mean that you wrinkle your nose more frequently when laughing or smiling, because of the lack of forehead movement. However, its important to remember that this does not happen to everyone who chooses forehead anti-wrinkle injections.
Can anti-wrinkle injections reduce the appearance of bunny lines?
Anti-wrinkle injections are the number one option for people looking to reduce the appearance of bunny lines and wrinkles. The injection can prevent movement in the area, allowing the skin to reset in its natural position, smoothing out any lines or wrinkles that have developed. This can also be used to prevent the bunny lines from forming in the first place too.
What are the advantages of Botox for bunny lines?
So, what are the benefits of using Botox to reduce the appearance of bunny lines? Well, there are several, including:
