Are you tired of the endless sniffles and embarrassing nasal drips that escape during important meetings and romantic dinners? Do you long for the day when you can breathe freely without reaching for a box of tissues? Well, we have exciting news for you!
SLOWtox is a medical treatment that involves injecting small amounts of Botox into your nasal cavity. While the idea of injecting Botox into your nose may seem bizarre, it’s actually a medically sound approach.
If you are thinking, how on earth does Botox dry up a drippy schnoz? Well, here’s the science behind the medical miracle of SLOWtox: tiny amounts of the toxin are injected into strategic areas in your nose, targeting the very glands responsible for producing excessive mucus. By temporarily paralyzing these glands, the release of a chemical called acetylcholine is blocked as are the nerve impulses to the glands that produce mucus. This treatment temporarily puts an end to the relentless waterfall that can flow from your nostrils, allowing you to face the world with your nose held high!
In a world where Botox seems to be the answer to all of life’s problems—facial wrinkles, excessive sweating, migraines, and even overactive bladder—Botox has also been shown to be effective in reducing nasal secretions in people with conditions such as allergic rhinitis and chronic rhinosinusitis.
If you are considering SLOWtox, Dr. Yagoda suggests that you should first consult with a qualified ear, nose and throat surgeon to address any structural problems that may contribute to your symptoms. If SLOWtox is right for you, you will need a trained physician to determine the appropriate dosage for your individual needs.
Like any medical treatment, SLOWtox isn’t without its potential risks and side effects. Some people may experience mild pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, while others may experience temporary changes in their sense of smell. However, these side effects are generally mild and temporary, and most people are able to resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
As the happiest time of the year approaches, there is one red-nosed reindeer that we all know by name….. Rudolph! Rudolph is an icon of Christmas who is allowed to have a plump, red nose: That is how he saved Christmas, after all!
However, in the beginning, even Rudolph was self conscious about his nose! If you find yourself in the same predicament, Dr. Yagoda offers a solution that can serve as the perfect holiday gift: tip rhinoplasty.
Tip rhinoplasty is a form of rhinoplasty that is done to narrow the tip of the nose; define and sculpt the tip; get rid of a bulbous tip; narrow the base of the nostrils (alar base reduction); and raise or lower the tip. And, that’s not even all! The tip can also be strengthened so that it doesn’t compress onto the upper lip when pressed upon. This option usually results in a more refined and perkier nose.
Tip rhinoplasty is a good option for those who really like — but don’t 100% love — their nose. It falls into the category of “finesse rhinoplasty,” which is defined as an enhancement to an otherwise attractive nose. If you are unhappy with your entire nose (feel it is crooked/large/etc or are having trouble breathing), then perhaps you should give yourself the gift of a full rhinoplasty. Either way, you will not be disappointed!
Nose job: When you think of plastic surgery, this is probably the first thing that pops into your head, right? If you answered yes, it is for good reason. Nose jobs, also known as rhinoplasties, remain the most popular facial plastic surgery procedure for both men and women.
The nose is the focal point of the face which, unfortunately, does not guarantee you will like it. If you are one of the thousands of people who would like to change the look of your nose — but don’t want to “undergo the knife” — there is another option. Dr. Michelle Yagoda, expert NYC celebrity facial plastic surgeon — offers non-surgical rhinoplasties for her patients.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is done through fillers. It can change the shape of the nose in various ways, as well as correct prior rhinoplasty surgery that went awry or was not done perfectly (as it should be!). Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is likely the most immediate, precise, and economical way to get the results you want.
Instantaneous corrections include: lowering nostril rims; making nostrils more symmetric; slimming bumps on the bridge of the nose; and correcting a twisted nose. The best part is the cost: Instead of starting at $6,000 plus hospital costs, your new nose will likely be no more than $500 and will last around 10 months. Now you know why nonsurgical rhinoplasties are one of the MOST requested procedures of Dr. Yagoda!
