Gone are the days where cosmetic surgery was the only available option if you wanted a nose job. Over the last few years, medical aesthetics researchers have made significant improvements in aesthetic treatments. This is evident when doctors are able to provide patients non-surgical options to enhance the nose without the need to go under the knife.
Because of the natural results and the safety profile of PDO Nose Thread Lift, we are seeing an increase in the number of Asian patients requesting for non-surgical nose thread lift over the last few months. Considering a nose thread lift to enhance your nose but you have some questions? Radium Medical Aesthetics answers some frequently asked questions to give you a better understanding of the treatment:
How Does A Non-Surgical Nose Thread Lift Work?
This non-surgical treatment uses threads made of polydioxanone (PDO). After assessing the nose, the doctor will start by administering anaesthesia so that the treatment will be more comfortable for you. When the anaesthesia sets in, the doctor will begin by inserting PDO nose threads precisely into the nose, where they act as a scaffold or structure to give the nose a higher bridge and better definition.
What Are PDO Threads? Are They Safe?
These special threads for the nose thread lift treatment are made of PDO. PDO threads are safe for use in the human body and the threads will naturally dissolve and absorbed, leaving behind a beautiful nose with enhanced contours.
These special threads need to be of a certain thickness for it to exert its full effects for the best result. Short, thin threads do not work well because they are not able to lift the nose well. On the other hand, threads that are too thick can possibly cause trauma and bruising to your nose and can leave a scar at the entry point. PDO nose threads with cogs are essential for best lifting results. It is very important that the doctor is discerning enough to select the nose threads carefully.
How Long Can PDO Nose Thread Lift Last?
A PDO nose thread lift treatment can typically last for about 12 to 18 months. You can repeat the treatment to further enhance or support the existing structure about 12 months from the previous treatment.
Everytime you undergo a nose thread lift treatment, the PDO threads stimulate the skin to encourage collagen production to maintain the structure and shape of the nose.
For best results, you should repeat the treatment about 9 to 12 months.
Any Risk Or Adverse Side Effects?
Non-surgical nose thread lift treatment has less risk and downtime than rhinoplasty. Risks involving rhinoplasty include permanent scarring, nerve damage, or under- or over-correction.
There might be some swelling and minor bruising immediately after the treatment. However, these side effects should resolve very quickly in a matter of a few days. You can expect to make full recovery in 3-4 days.
PDO Thread Lift Or Nose Filler?
Nose filler is a good option for people who want to make minor adjust to the height of the nose bridge and add some definition to the nose tip. On the other hand, PDO nose thread lift is best suited for people who want to create a better definition and contour the nose by building a scaffold to lift the nose.
For a complete nose augmentation, a combination therapy of nose thread lift and nose filler can provide a complete makeover for the nose. It provides the doctor the ability to create a structure for the nose to give it height and projection and sculpt the nose using fillers for more defined feature.
