Nose Threadlift is growing in popularity in the enhancement of Asian noses. This is not at all surprising since it has its advantages over Nose Filler, such as:
- Giving greater definition to the bridge while still looking natural,
- Straightening the nose bridge in some cases,
- Creating a higher nose bridge,
- Lifting the tip to make it sharper in a way nose tip filler cannot do,
- Reducing the nose tip ala for a smaller looking nose tip.
Yes indeed, it is amazing what the Nose Threadlift can do that a Nose Filler may not be able to achieve.
The Nose Threadlift procedure is certainly growing in demand due to the limitations of nose filler augmentation. If you are wondering how it is done, here is a detailed and comprehensive description of the procedure and results!
What is Nose Threadlift?
The threads used for the Nose Threadlift procedure are called PDO (polydixanone) threads. The PDO threads have been scientifically proven to be fully absorbed by the body after some time. As the PDO threads dissolve over time, they create new collagen, and tissue fibroblasts in the skin, which results in tighter skin, hence enhancing the nose’s definition and contour.
This is what the threads look like:
In addition, once inserted, the Nose Threadlift act as a scaffolding structure which immediately helps to contour, give definition, sharpen, lift and or shape the nose as desired without surgery.
If you want to have a higher and straighter nose without invasive nose implant surgery or the risks of Nose Filler, Nose Threadlift may be your answer.
How to do a Nose Threadlift? How is the Nose Threadlift done?
The process of Nose Threadlift is actually a simple one and can be completed in under 15 minutes. It is relatively painless, especially since numbing cream and local anesthesia is always used for every Nose Threadlift procedure.
The specifics of the Nose Threadlift procedure may vary between doctors, as skill and perception differs. We have studied all the possible applications of the Nose Threadlift and found the most effective one for the best results before recommending it to all our clients.
We give a brief description below on how the procedure is easily executed:
Step 1: the ideal point for placing the Nose Threadlift is located and marked. This is vital for placement of the Nose Threadlift for best results.
Step 2: local anesthesia quickly numbs the entire nose area in preparation for the Nose Threadlift treatment.
Step 3: a small injection is placed at the correct point on the nose before insertion of the Nose Threadlift.
Step 4: The threads are placed horizontally into the nose bridge and vertically into the nose tip. The procedure is now painless because of the anesthesia and is over in under 15 minutes.
Result: the bridge is enhanced and higher; the tip is smaller and sharper in appearance, without much downtime. 😉
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long does the Nose Threadlift last?
The results of the Nose Threadlift generally last from 1 to 2 years.
It should be noted that there is a partial effect that is semi-permanent. This is because the Nose Threadlift creates new collagen within the skin and tightens the skin as time goes by.
For best results, 1 repeat treatment at 6 to 12 months is highly recommended.
As to the number of threads required for optimal results, it depends greatly from one individual to the other. The optimal number of threads will be advised by our doctors after consultation.
What are the possible side effects of Nose Threadlift?
There is very little side effect and almost no downtime at all, since it only involves a single injection site at the tip of the nose.
As compared to Nose Filler, migration or broadening is far less common and risk of lumps almost nil. Some discomfort is expected for the following week, just like in a Nose Filler, but it mostly resolves within a fortnight.
The risk for infection with any implantation procedure is present, albeit low. Care with sterility during the procedure is of utmost importance to avoid infection, as well as after care – please do not apply makeup or facial products on the treated area until at least 3 hours after the procedure.
Does the type of Nose Threads used matter?
It certainly does!
Apart from the doctor’s skill, the results of a Nose Threadlift procedure is also much dependent on the type of threads used.
A lot of threads currently in use today are short and smooth mono threads, which gives no or minimal results because they are too thin and smooth and therefore are unable to provide sufficient scaffolding to lift the nose sufficiently. On the other hand, threads that are too thick are more likely to cause scarring.
On the other hand, the screw cog nose threads used by us are different from usual threads because the screw cog nose threads are peppered with cogs, maximizing the scaffolding, lifting, and contouring effect of the nose. Only 1 treatment session is required to see visible good results with little downtime or side effects, as compared to repeated treatments required for other types of threads, therefore minimizing pain, time and cost.
Why do some Nose Threadlift not give sufficient result?
Short thin threads do not give a good result, if at all, and you may very well be wasting your time and money. Threads that are too thick can leave a scar at the injection point. Threads with the correct type of cog gives the best lift and effect for the nose bridge and tip. One must choose wisely. 😉
If you have attempted Nose Threadlift before but does not think the results good at all, it is likely due to any of the below:
- Wrong type of Nose Threads used
- Wrong number of Nose Threads placed
- Wrong technique of placement of Nose Threads to maximize its potential lifting effect.
This is what the threads should look like. Notice the cogs along the length of the threads, which are necessary for the lifting effect:
The right thickness and the presence of cogs are essential to an effective nose threadlift. Otherwise, the procedure only acts to firm up the skin of the nose, rather than give a lifting effect.
Is the Nose Threadlift procedure suitable for men too?
Nose Threadlift is a very good option for nose augmentation in men, especially in conjunction with Nose Filler, to give a high and defined result. As males tend to be bigger in build, the number of threads required may be more, as compared to an average female.
This procedure can be done for both men and women with good result of nose bridge lifting and nose tip sharpening.
How many sessions are required to achieve a good result?
Only one session is required! The results are dependent on the type and number of threads used rather than on the number of sessions. As long as sufficient of the right type of threads are used, the results will be visible right after a single procedure.
Which to choose: Nose Filler or Nose Threadlift?
This depends very much on your objective and desired nose appearance. For nose bridge height adjustment, filler is still the better option; whereas for creating definition and contouring, threadlift is the choice.*
Better still, combine both the nose filler with the nose threadlift for a full and complete nose makeover – if dramatic is what you are looking for. For a sharper, smaller looking nose tip, I also highly recommend a combination of both nose filler and nose threadlift.
This latest innovation in beauty medicine is fasting gaining ground in South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore because it is proving to be a viable alternative to other methods of nose augmentation – and in some cases, the better choice. It is certainly an option to consider, apart from nose filler augmentation or nose implant rhinoplasty, due to the low risks and good results!
