Nose Botox: Everything You Need to Know About This New Aesthetic Trend!

Botox NYC

Most people aren’t 100% satisfied with their facial appearance. Some might wish they had bigger eyes or a less gummy smile. Others might regret plucking their eyebrows too thin or getting the wrong shade of lash tint. However, regarding profile complaints, the nose tends to be the most targeted facial feature. It’s not uncommon to dislike the shape or size of your nose and want to do something about it. That’s why nose Botox has become a hot new aesthetic trend.

You’ve undoubtedly heard of Botox before. It’s the most popular aesthetic treatment in the world. It can minimize the appearance of wrinkles and enhance treated areas. It turns out this versatile treatment can also improve the appearance of your nose in a natural-looking way. Botox injections in the nose can subtly improve nose shape by making it appear slimmer and less boxy. It can also prevent the nose tip from drooping downward when you smile. Here’s everything you need to know about this hot new aesthetic trend!

What Is Nose Botox?

Nose Botox is just regular Botox injected strategically in and around the nose. Botox is a neurotoxin that has a paralyzing effect on the targeted muscles. It helps relax the muscles so they no longer hyper-contract and cause wrinkles.

When injected in the correct location, Botox can improve the shape and overall appearance of the nose. Your injector will carefully place the injections based on your overall aesthetic goal.

It’s natural to have questions about neurotoxin injections. Many wonder, “How much is Botox for the nose?” or “How long will my results last?” You’ll find answers to these questions and more in this guide.

The Incredible Advantages of Botox Injections in the Nose

Nose Botox is getting a lot of hype these days, and for good reason! This remarkable treatment is an excellent alternative to a rhinoplasty. Traditional nose surgery is risky and can result in infections, excess bleeding, and other potential complications. Plus, nose surgery is permanent. So, if you don’t like your new nose, there’s not much you can do about it unless you want to undergo another corrective surgery.

Unlike surgery, Botox injections in the nose deliver temporary results. That means you don’t have to worry about being stuck with the outcome forever if you don’t like your new look. Fortunately, most people love nose Botox so much that they continue to receive maintenance treatments. Here are some of the incredible advantages of Botox injections in the nose:

  • Minimally invasive treatment
  • No downtime or painful recovery period
  • Provides subtle, natural-looking results that make a big difference
  • More affordable than rhinoplasty
  • Fast and convenient 30-minute treatments

In addition to the above benefits, Botox injections in the nose also provide highly customized results. Your injector will place the injections right where needed to get the desired outcomes. Just ensure you go to a skilled and qualified injector to get the best possible results.

What Can Nose Botox Treat?

Botox injections in the nose can treat many different aesthetic issues. Here are some of the most common reasons people receive this treatment.

Droopy Nose Tip When Smiling

Does the tip of your nose dip downward when you smile? This common problem occurs when the depressor septi nasi muscle contracts. This muscle causes the nose tip to dip downward when you smile. If you have this common problem, ask your injector about droopy nose tip when smiling Botox treatments.

Botox injections can fix a nose dip by relaxing the depressor septi nasi muscle and lifting the nose tip. This makes the tip of the nose appear perky and lifted when you smile instead of getting pulled downward toward the mouth. Make sure you see a provider who knows where to inject Botox for nose lift purposes.

Wide Nose When Smiling

Overactive dilator naris posterior muscles can cause the nose to spread outward while smiling. If your nose looks wider than normal when you’re happy, now you know why. Botox for a wide nose when smiling can reduce nasal flare and help your nose look slimmer when you smile. When injected properly, nose Botox targets the dilator naris posterior muscle and prevents it from over-contracting.

Bulky Nose Shape

Another common reason to get Botox injections in your nose is to help it appear slimmer. Many people have bulky or boxy noses and need surgery to correct the problem. But that simply isn’t true! Expert Botox injections can help your nose appear more slender and attractive without incisions.

Nose Wrinkles

Some people think nose wrinkles (bunny wrinkles) are cute and add personality. They tend to develop after years of smiling, squinting, or frowning. If you like how your nose looks when you smile or laugh, there’s no need to change anything.

But if you don’t like the way those lines on the bridge of your nose look, Botox injections in the nose can help. Your provider can smooth out those undesirable nose wrinkles by injecting neurotoxin into the nasalis muscles on both sides of the nose. After treatment, your nose will continue to look smooth and youthful while you make various facial expressions.

How Long Does Nose Botox Last?

Everyone metabolizes Botox differently. Some people’s results last longer because their body breaks down the neurotoxin slower. Others may need to get touch-ups more frequently. However, the results of Botox injections in the nose last between 4-6 months for most people.

You may wish to receive regular maintenance treatments to maintain your new and improved nose longer than six months after treatment. Work with your provider to determine how frequently you should schedule those appointments. Many people choose to have Botox re-injected twice per year. Of course, you can also choose not to get maintenance treatments if you don’t mind your nose returning to its pre-Botox appearance.

What Is Nose Botox Aftercare Like?

After your nonsurgical Botox “nose job,” your provider will give you aftercare instructions. Following the instructions will help you maximize your Botox results. After your treatment, it’s natural to experience minor swelling, bruising, redness, and discomfort. These symptoms should all be short-lived and subside on their own. To enhance your recovery process, follow these instructions after treatment:

  • Stay upright for at least four hours. Some experts believe that lying down too soon could increase your risk of Botox migration. This is when the neurotoxin travels from the treated area to nearby areas.
  • Avoid strenuous activities for the first 14 hours after treatment. You can engage in gentle walking and other non-strenuous activities.
  • Stop drinking alcohol at least 24 hours before and after your injections. Drinking alcohol can contribute to bruising and potentially exacerbate post-treatment discomfort.
  • Don’t massage, scratch, or rub the injection site for at least four hours after your appointment. You should also avoid getting facials for a few days while the area heals.

If you experience unusual or worsening side effects after Botox injections, talk to your provider. You may have an infection or an allergy to the neurotoxin.

How Much Is Nose Botox?

As with all aesthetic treatments, the cost of Botox nose injections can vary. If you’re wondering, “How much does nose Botox cost?” the answer depends on your provider and treatment location. The price of your procedure can also depend on how many units of Botox you need to achieve the desired results for a nose lift.

What Is Bunny Nose After Botox?

Botox injections in the nose can reduce bunny lines caused by smiling, squinting, and other facial expressions. But in rare cases, nose wrinkles can become more pronounced after neurotoxin injections. This doesn’t usually occur directly due to Botox injections in the nose. Instead, it tends to happen after Botox injections between the eyebrows. This is a popular Botox injection location because it reduces the appearance of glabellar lines (those “11-shaped lines between the eyebrows”).

Unfortunately, the glabella muscle sometimes becomes too relaxed after forehead injections. When this happens, the muscles on the sides of the nose may try to compensate for the underactive glabella muscle. This can cause them to scrunch up and make the bridge of the nose look excessively wrinkled.

Your provider may reverse this effect by carefully injecting Botox into the nose along the sides of the nose. You can reduce your likelihood of experiencing Botox complications like bunny nose from happening in the first place by choosing a skilled injector.
