When you scrunch your nose, lines may appear on the sidewalls of your nose. These are often called bunny lines, as they resemble a rabbit’s nose. While the name is cute, most people do not want lingering bunny lines across the bridge of their nose or wrinkles on their nasal sidewalls. Botox® injections can be the solution for etched nasal sidewall wrinkles. At pēkomd®, we offer Botox for bunny lines at our cosmetic surgery center in Toledo, OH.
If you have a habit of scrunching your nose or squinting, you may be creating nasal sidewall lines repeatedly. Over time, those dynamic lines can be etched in the skin. As your skin loses elasticity with age, wrinkles may become permanent. The underlying muscles can trigger these lines, even when you are not making the facial expression. If you have bunny lines across your nose, the solution may be relaxing the muscles to smooth the dynamic lines in your skin.
Eliminate Nasal Sidewall Wrinkles
Botox works as a neuromodulator by blocking nerve signals to the muscles that cause dynamic lines. Once the muscles are relaxed, the lines and wrinkles diminish for a smoother, more youthful appearance. Dr. Koltz is a Botox expert who can carefully place injections to only affect the muscles that cause bunny lines on the nose, creating the desired result.
Botox treatment is quick and comfortable. The injections are not painful, and there are very few side effects beyond the desired result. Some patients may experience some swelling or slight bruising at the injection site, but these effects dissipate in the days following treatment. The smoothing of the nasal sidewall wrinkles can last for 3-4 months before another treatment may be needed to maintain the effects. Botox can be used long-term to keep your nose free from lines, and it may prevent the lines from becoming more pronounced with aging.
