It’s a myth that your nose continues to grow as you age. This is technically incorrect. In actuality, your nose changes shape as you age. It might look like it’s growing bigger, but it’s not. Your nose changes shape due to the effects of aging.
These things will affect the shape, and possibly size, of your nose:
- bone structure
- cartilage formation
- weakening skin elasticity
Usually, this means that your nose gets flatter and wider with age. The tip of your nose may also start to droop a bit, giving you a witchy look that you might not like.
What you can do about it
To revitalize the contours of your nose, you may not need to consider a nose job. It’s easier than that!
A quick and easy way to make your nose look younger is with Juvéderm, a hyaluronic acid injectable filler. The treatment takes about 20-30 minutes. An injection of this product can be made into the dorsum, which is the line that runs straight down the center of your nose. By adding a bit of height here, your nose will look slimmer and less flat. If you have bumps on your bridge, the treatment can also smooth them away.
