Thank you for your question lb21840. Botox can be used to address certain aspects of the nose. For example some people have bunny lines when they scrunch their nose. A small amount of Botox (2-4 units) per side can be injected to relax the muscle and improve the bunny lines. This treatment generally does not affect the size not shape of the nose. Botox does not change the shape or size of the nose. Fillers and surgical rhinoplasty will address the shape and size of the nose. Botox is commonly used for hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, in the underarms, palms of the hands, and soles of the feet. I have not heard of its use in the nose. Oil reduction on the nose and elsewhere on the face is best addressed with topical retinoids such as Retin-A, Differin, Tazorac, or reintol. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
