Hello Doctor Just a doubt... I've seen many articles mention that botox can be used to "raise" the tip of the nose. What I wonder is: does it actually raise the tip of the nose to a point? or does it just AVOID the nose from drooping *when the person talks or smiles*? Depending on the dose of botox, could botox actually raise the tip some millimeters? Is the muscle that pulls down the tip of the nose one that can work and pull the tip down even when the person is not talking or moving his/her face? Hugs!!
I rarely do this technique. However, you are correct, you can actually raise the tip of the nose a bit even when you don't smile. It lasts about 2 months in many cases and I think it is unpredictable and a waste. It can also spread to the upper lip and drop the lip a tiny bit and also can affect the nostrils by slightly splaying them at times as well. hope that is clear. best, sml
