What does botox do to the nose?
Botox also called botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin used in aesthetic medicine for years. Known worldwide for its benefits as an anti-aging treatment for erasing facial fine lines and wrinkles. This non-surgical procedure also called a non-surgical nose job, does also wonders to correct the nose and improve its overall look with no downtime and the same results as with traditional rhinoplasty.
Why Might You Need Botox For Your Nose?
Botox injections can help improve the overall look of the nose in so many ways and helps you erase your insecurities without undergoing any surgery. The most common one being the droopy nose tip (nose pulling down from the upper lip). It can be fixed with an injection of botox right underneath the septum of the nose. The Botox injected acts to paralyze the depressor septi nasi muscle (the muscle right beneath the nose), allowing the nose to perk up. A single session is usually enough for beautiful results that last up to 6 months.
Bunny lines are another issue that can easily be fixed with botox injection on the nose. This horizontal line located just across the side or ridge of the nose is usually due to facial expressions leading the nasals muscle to contract repeatedly. Botox injection can help erase it with the help of a few units.
Excessive nasal flares are another issue patients may have. Botox injection along both sides of the nose can help fix it and keep the nostrils from expanding too widely.
Why Non-Surgical Nose Jobs Over Surgical Nose Jobs?
The non-surgical nose job is getting more and more popular thanks to its benefits compared to traditional rhinoplasty, as it offers no major downtime and much fewer risks. Painless (thanks to a topical numbing cream applied before the injection), the procedure takes only one session. No anesthesia, no bruising, or edema.
It is also a temporary treatment. What can be a downside to some as you need to repeat the injections every 6 months or so, in order to keep the desired nose shape, is also an asset to others, as they can see what their nose can look like with the improvement, before considering a traditional rhinoplasty.
