Non-surgical nose jobs using Botox represents a new alternative available to those who want to change the shape of their nose without going under the knife. The benefits of using Botox for a nose job are faster results, reduced pain, and a faster recovery time. If you want to change the shape of your nose but don't want to go through surgery, a non-surgical nose job with Botox may be the right option for you. This is a great option for those who want minor to moderate changes in their nose shape.
A non-surgical nose job involves using an injectable material, of which Botox is one of the most popular options, in order to reshape the nose. Botox injections, normally used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, can now be used to even out bumps or other imperfections in the contours of the nose.
The Botox procedure
It takes the doctor about 15 minutes to inject Botox into targeted locations in the nose. Using a fine needle, these injections require no anesthesia and are relatively painless. Following this single-session treatment, Botox relaxes the muscles of the nose. This can have a variety of effects depending on the exact placement of the injections. For example, it may turn up a 'drooping' nose tip or smooth wrinkles on the nose. The results of a nonsurgical nose job using Botox last for six months to two years, after which time the nose will begin to regain its previous appearance.
Botox is used for non-surgical nose jobs because it causes facial muscles to relax. This injectable is also used to treat frown lines and other facial wrinkles, where it acts as an alternative to facelifts and other invasive surgical procedures. The injection of Botox contains a weak toxin to cause controlled weakening of facial muscles. When used for a non-surgical nose job, the Botox causes the muscles in the nose to relax by blocking signals from the nerves to these muscles.
After the treatment and side effects
After Botox injections to any area of the face, do not rub the treated area or lay down for 12 hours, which can transfer the injection to other areas of the face. The most common side effects include numbness, tingling, or temporary bruising. There is no recovery time; patients who receive non-surgical nosejobs using Botox injections can return to their normal life nearly immediately, with no bandages over the nose.
