As well as plumping out fine lines and wrinkles to make skin smoother and more youthful looking, dermal fillers can also be used to transform and correct facial contours and features, for example, the nose. Dermal fillers can be used in several instances to improve and define the nose without invasive surgery including;
· Building up a flat nose.
· Straightening hook-shaped or slightly crooked noses.
· Lifting a droopy nasal tip.
· Redefining a nose after the patient has had unsuccessful surgical rhinoplasty (a nose job).
· Adding height to the bridge or tip of the nose.
Prior to your treatment we will discuss your desired results at your consultation. Whilst the treatment is non-invasive and doesn’t require a general anesthetic, we do apply a numbing agent to minimize any discomfort. Once your nose is numbed, we inject small amounts of the dermal filler into the area of your nose that requires reshaping and then massage it into place. The whole procedure takes less than an hour and you are free to go about your day afterwards but we do recommend that you do not wear heavy glasses or sunglasses for 2 weeks afterwards. The result lasts around 6 to 12 months and then you can choose whether or not you want the procedure repeated.
There are two types of dermal fillers that we use for this treatment, Hyaluronic acid based Juvederm or Restylane and Radiesse, calcium hydroxlapatite microspheres suspended in a gel carrier. Our Hyaluronic acid based fillers plump and hydrate the skin whilst the Radiesse creates ‘scaffolding’ under the skin to lift and create shape and definition. All of our dermal fillers are FDA-approved, are non-permanent and have excellent safety profiles.
As well as being quick, safe and non-invasive, our non-surgical nose jobs give predictable, subtle results that look natural and are a fraction of the price of surgical rhinoplasty. To find out more about this or any of our other treatments, contact us today and speak with a member of our team.
