Be wary of injectables for non-surgical Rhinoplasty
Botox can be used on the nose to treat some of the wrinkles that are created when the muscle of the upper nose contract. This won't change the shape of the nose at all, though. The shape, size, proportions will look exactly the same as it did before.
So what is the "nonsurgical nose job"? Some people have been promoting the injection of filler materials, such as Restylane and Radiesse, to change the appearance of the nose. This has been referred to as a "nonsurgical nose job."
I would caution you to be very wary of this. Remember that fillers can only add volume. Injecting them under the skin of the nose will simply lift up that area of skin. The "nonsurgical nose job" (injecting the nose with filler) in 100% of cases therefore makes the nose bigger. The material injected is amorphous or like a gel, and so, it is impossible to "sculpt." Any results you see will be temporary, lasting until the material dissolves.
For these reasons, its pretty unusual for this to be a good choice for someone who wants to look better. I would suggest you (and others who read this), get more than one opinion if you are considering this. Make sure to visit with at least one surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty. It is considered perhaps the most difficult operation in all of plastic surgery. The aesthetics of the nose are nuanced. You deserve to see someone who devotes their practice to rhinoplasty, with years of experience helping people improve the appearance of the nose.
Unusual to use Botox for non-surgical nose job
Botox could be used to change the angle of the tip of the nose relative to the upper lip. Is this what you had done? If you didn't have this particular manuver -- I'm not sure exactly how Botox would make a meaningful difference in your nose.
Generally, a nonsurgical nose job uses some kind of filler (Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse) to fill a deficit in some part of the nose. A very experienced surgeon may offer silicon as a permanent filler, and this can work very well when performed correctly. This works well if the nose has a pushed in appearance on one side or the other. If the nose has a mild to moderate hump it can be softened quite well by injecting filler just above and below the hump. Some tip contouring can also be performed with filler.
How much does something like this cost? Well, that depends on what filler is used, what part of the country you're in, and the particular surgeon you're dealing with. Having said that, I'd count of paying at least $750 to $1000 for a well done procedure.

Cost Price of Non Surgical Rhinoplasty , Liquid Rhinoplasty , Liquid Nosejob , Fillers, injectable nosejob
Of these injectables, all are good options, but one must realize the limitations of performing an injectable rhinoplasty / nosejob. Unlike a surgical rhinoplasty, nothing can be removed or taken away. Volume can only be added to certain areas in order to camouflage shadowing or provide better and smoother contours. If this is done on a nose with already high features, it can be problematic. Another thing to be cautious about is building up the projection or length of the nose which is often required when building up the dorsum or top of the nose. Over injecting tight skin can be quite risky. Non surgical or liquid rhinoplasty is easy to do in general and can be very rewarding, but you must always remember that it most definitely has its limits.

Restylane better than Botox for nose shaping
Botox can slightly lift the nose tip, but actual reshaping is done best with Restylane in the hands of an experienced injector. The best part is that it usually requires only 0.4cc and this will cost only about $300-400. It will last at least 6 months, often one year.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty done with filler materials
Botox can be used on the nose to accomplish two things: diminish "bunny lines" and occasionally lift the tip slightly. A non-surgical rhinoplasty, however, is accomplished using filler material like Restylane. These materials can be used to improve a dorsal hump, camouflage a crooked nose to make it look straighter, lift the tip slightly and smooth out some contour irregularities. The filler material is injected under the nasal skin to create these improvements. But, this is not a procedure to be done by inexperienced injectors, since catastrophic consequences can occur if the nasal blood supply is occluded with filler. Make sure your injector is skilled, both in injection technique and knowledge of nasal anatomy.
Cost of a non-surgical nose job
First of all you will need a detailed consultation to see whether or not this is suitable for you. Remember that the results are not permanent and last 6-12 months maximum. The treatment is useful if there is a small dorsal hump or slight drooping of the nasal tip. Some slight deviation of the nasal bridge can be 'straightened' but the nose will be slightly wider. However, the overall appearance of the nose will be more aesthetically pleasing.
It is a highly skilled procedure and detailed anatomical knowledge is necessary to help minimise complications. It does not always treat the same indications as a surgical rhinoplasty.
In my practice the fee starts from £500.

Botox Can Raise the Tip
This muscle can be activated with smiling and it pulls the tip down.
A little BOTOX in this area can stop the active pull down with smiling and raise the tip slightly at rest. The result is only for some months while the BOTOX is working. A more permanent solution for the muscle tension tip is to trim the muscle from the inside of the lip.
