Can fillers be used to contour the nose?

Can fillers such as restylane be used on the nose to fill out imperfections? Thanks for any information. Bonnie

The answer to this is absolutely yes!  In fact, there are several dermatologists and plastic surgeons who have made this a special interest and published papers on these techniques. Restylane and Juvederm (hyaluronic acid fillers) often last longer in the nose area than other areas of the face.  Another advantage is the enzyme hyaluronidase.  This enzyme dissolves hyaluronic acid fillers and can be used if you don’t like your results with the filler.

Juvederm/Restylane  can be used to correct asymmetries or divits created by cosmetic or skin cancer surgeries.  They can also be used to improve the shape of the nose.  Obviously though, they can’t make a nose smaller.     Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
