Botox is a toxin produced by clostridium botulinum and is able to weaken or paralyze the muscle. In small doses it can prevent the muscle in the area from moving. By doing this it reduces fine lines and wrinkles as well as makes the muscle in the area smaller due to the lack of movement. With botox nose slimming, the muscles on the sides of the nose can appear slimmer by limiting their movement with botox.
Who is a good candidate?
Those that notice that their nostrils flare as they smile or that the nose droops downward causing it to appear very wide may be a good candidate. Correction of the flaring and lifting the droopy nose tip will create an aesthetically pleasing thinner look. This treatment is not meant for people that are trying to physically alter the shape of the nose.
