Can vitamin c injections in specific nose areas mimic non surgical Nose job results?

I was wondering that, because vitamin c is good for colagen production.... couldn't it be used for facial fillers?

Thank you for sharing your question.  Unfortunately Vitamin C injections will not mimic a nonsurgical nose job result.  Only through the use of dermal fillers can an appearance change take place.  See an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon in consultation.

No, only facial fillers (Voluma, Restylane, Juvederm) could be used to improve symmetry of the nose, but surgery would be needed for the nostrils/shape. See an expert for a formal evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer
