Here at Dr Hennessy botox training Liverpool we know that Botox can be used on various areas of the face, ranging from the forehead to the frown lines between the eyes and the crows feet.
This series of posts looks at the other possible uses for Botox that aren’t traditionally better known by the end user. Today we’re looking at Nasal flare reduction.
As we know that botox is useful in paralysing or weakening muscles, it generally isn’t recommended for nasal injections. We know that their are many muscles that may act on the sidewalls and the base of the nose. Unfortunately those muscles may also affect the your smile. Although it can be argued that Botox can be used to prevent dynamic changes in the shape of the nose. Most commonly, Botox can keep the nostrils from flaring during facial expressions or keep the nasal tip from drooping when you smile (as it does for some people). As always results are temporary which is both good and bad.
As discussed Botox injections can change the dynamics of your smile but it will not change the size and shape of your nose. The nose should be evaluated with the face at rest.
