Everything You Need To Know About Non-Surgical Nose Thread Lifts

Do you want a straighter, higher and more defined nose without any surgery but not sure if threads or fillers are right for you? Get all your questions on non-surgical nose thread lifts answered here.

What Are Nose Threads Made of? Are They Safe?
The threads used for nose thread lift are made of polydioxanone (PDO) and they are completely absorbed over time. In fact, PDO is a synthetic absorbable thread that surgeons use to stitch wounds after a surgery. It is completely safe and bio-compatible with the human body.

What are the possible results I can expect with Nose Threads Lift?

  • Straighter Contour Definition
  • Raising the Nose Bridge
  • Lifting the Nose Tip

How is the procedure done?
The procedure is simple and takes about 30 mins to complete. Numbing cream will be applied to ensure that the procedure is almost painless. Using a blunt cannula, I will create a small puncture at the tip of the nose to insert the threads.

Is There a Risk of Blindness After the Nose Thread Lift Treatment?
Threads used are inserted using blunt cannulas to achieve the desired height and projection of the nose by building a scaffold using the threads. Nose threads also does not cause any migration, spreading or blood vessel occlusion, so there’s virtually no risk involved.

How soon can I see results?
You should be able to see visible result in 1 session as long as the correct type of threads are used and placed.

How long do the Effects Last?
The results can last from 1 to 2 years. Repeated treatments are possible and yields even better results.

Is there any downtime?
You can resume work almost immediately with no downtime except for some soreness and swelling which will last about 3-5 days.

Why Are Some Nose Thread Lift Prices Out There So Much Cheaper?
It takes an experienced doctor to determine the number of threads required in order to see the desired outcome. Apart from the doctor’s skills and experience, the result of the treatment is also dependent on the following:

  • Thickness of threads
  • Length of threads
  • Type of anchor on the threads

I use only threads that are FDA and HSA-approved, supported with numerous clinical studies to show its effectiveness.
