Nose slimming & lifting with anti-wrinkle injections?

March 03, 2024

Did you know that anti-wrinkle injections can help change the shape of your nose?

Injecting certain points of the nose can lift the tip, reduce nasal flaring or wide nostrils and soften the bunny lines across the nose.

What is anti-wrinkle or muscle relaxing injections?

It is a neurotoxin created by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, and has been used since the late 1970s to treat various muscular conditions and other ailments, such as migraines, excessive sweating, and eye squints.

Muscle relaxing injections operates on the same principles in all applications: it is used to block muscle movement or significantly reduce it.

 

What can muscle relaxing injections do to the nose?

It can lift the tip of the nose, slim the nostrils, as well as reduce bunny lines, depending on each individuals needs and the muscle injected.

 

Suitable indications for use

This is indicated in patients with a mild drooping of the nasal tip. It will not improve a severely nasal droop. This procedure is a mild “finesse” technique.

 

Lifting the nasal tip

The depressor septi nasi muscle located under the middle of the nose, immediately beneath the mid septum. This muscle naturally acts as an anchor to the tip of the nose pulling it down. As we age the tip tends to pull down further.

When injected with muscle relaxant, aimed specifically at the depressor septi nasi muscle, it reduces the pulling down effect, so lifting the tip of the nose. With all treatments every patient can have varying results.

 

Reducing Nasal Flaring

For patients who are unhappy with the large size or frequency of their nasal flaring, injections to both sides of the Alar nasalis muscle can help reduce the flaring. Injecting the dilator naris anterior muscle can help narrow the nasal tip and lastly, treating the compressor narium minor muscle can help lift the tip of the nose.

 

*Please note that all treatments may vary and no guarantee can be made as to the outcome of each treatment.
