Nose shape correction is one of the most frequently performed procedures on the face. In cases of small defects, a much cheaper and less invasive alterantive is to improve its appearance with fillers based on hyaluronic acid, with the effects lasting up to 2 years.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the tissues of all living organisms, including hair, joints, gums and as a component of a tear fluid. It helps maintain flexibility and proper hydration of the skin, protects against damage by external factors and accelerates wound healing. It is a polysaccharide (complex sugar), having a huge ability to bind water molecules – one molecule of hyaluronic acid can bind even 250 of them.
Hardly anyone of us is a nose-holder from which he would be completely satisfied. Most often, we complain about the lack of symmetry and proportionality in its construction, too protruding tip of the nose. We do not like our reflection in the mirror, we pay attention to the shape of our nose by watching our photos or videos too often. The aging process also does not spare our nose, whose tip often falls downwards over time. Research shows that the shape of the nose is one of the most common sources of complexes in the background of appearance of both women and men. At the same time, we are afraid of surgical correction of nose shape, high invasiveness and pain associated with the surgery. We are also concerned about the lack of predictability of the final effect and its irreversibility.
The non-surgical solution
Nose modeling does not have to involve surgery and irreversible changes. People who want to change the shape of the nose are more often offered a non-surgical correction, which uses a filler based on hyaluronic acid. A large part of these “defects” of nose can be improved in just a few minutes.
How it works?
The preparation is injected into areas requiring intervention, and fingers model the substance to achieve the patient’s desired dream. An inoperative correction of the nose occurs. Importantly, during the procedure, patient can observe its effects in the mirror and report on the new shape. As a result of this treatment, the face becomes more harmonious and features soften. Compared to surgery, nose correction with the use of filler is safe and practically painless. After several minutes, patient leaves with a new, nice nose and can return to daily activities. Usually, there are no visible marks after the treatment. The nose can be slightly, but not noticeably enlarged, rarely appear small bruises or hematomas, disappearing after a few days, easy to hide under the make-up. Therefore, patient does not undergo unpleasant convalescence, as in the case of any surgical procedures.
The effect is visible immediately after the treatment, but for the final result patient should be waiting about two weeks. The effect of non-surgical nose correction persists for about 12 months. After this time, the procedure can be repeated and desired shape of the nose can be maintained.
Nose reshaping treatment contraindications:
This type of treatments are quick, convenient for the patient and gives immediate effect. Its essence is the injection of a jelly-like preparation in selected areas of the nose or lip in order to model it. During modelling, we assess which sites should be filled with acid to obtain the optimal effect and best fit of nose & lip to the face. For example, correction of nose nasal hump involves injection of the acid in three places: before and after hump – which optically conceals bulging bone and at the tip of nose – which gives the effect of elation and gives the whole a suitable shape. Lip filling using hyaluronic acid influences the contour underlining, filling the volume, balancing the mutual proportions of upper and lower lip, raising corners and reducing the shadow at mouth corners.
