Thank you for sharing your question and I am sorry that your results have not been what you anticipated.  I am not sure if you are having a complication or issue from your filler placement and would discuss this with your injector to ensure all is well.  Depending on the filler placed you would want to avoid a potential infection from setting in.  Needling can stimulate collagen formation but usually requires several treatments and in the nose is not an effective means of achieving a change in shape or position.  Hope this helps.

I'm not sure I understand, but rather than microneedling-fillers can be used to lift the nasal tip along with botox.  I suggest seeking the advice of a cosmetic specialist who is an expert in filler treatments.  Best, Dr. Emer.
