What are bunny lines?
Bunny lines is quite a common symptom that some of us, but not all of us, have. These are lines that scrunch up when you wrinkle up your nose; like a bunny.
If you look into the mirror and frown, some of us push down from our forehead and that makes the lines across the nose. Some of us often express by bunnying up; screwing up our noses – a lot. I do it, and this is what makes the lines across the top of the nose and the fanning on the sides of our noses making it look like bunny lines.
If we don’t treat these bunny lines while treating other lines on our face, these begin to look stronger and deeper while other lines lighten up, creating an uneven and less attractive appearance. So for some, it’s a great treatment to have done by your Registered Cosmetic Nurse.
