The “bunny lines” are diagonal lines on the side of the nose when certain facial expressions are made. They are due to the action of the nasalis muscle.
Some people have a complaint that this area is overactive relative to the rest of their face, and if so, can have this group of muscles treated with one of our injectable neuromodulators.
My treatment for this group of muscles is a neuromodulator (such as Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, or Xeomin). Typical treatments are 4-5 Units. Treatment of this area has the effect of relaxing the “bunny lines” when smiling and showing emotion.
Neuromodulator treatments in the office take 15 minutes (most of which is spent talking about the treatment and expectations), and the effects are seen as early as 2 days, and by 2 weeks, all of the effects have taken place. The duration of treatment typically ranges from 3-6 months, depending on the individual patient and dose used.
