Nose Threadlift gives you a higher and straighter nose and a more defined nose tip without having to undergo a rhinoplastry or fillers augmentation. Nose Threadlifts are gaining popularity in Asia, especially in Korea and Japan as it is non-surgical and is minimally invasive.
How does it work?
The Nose Threadlift utilises advanced PDO (polydioxanone) 3-dimensionally barbed threads which are placed under the skin to improve the contour of the nose i.e. elevate the nose bridge and/or tip which stimulating collagen formation to lift and support the desired contour.
The treatment is done under local anaesthesia. Our doctor will determine the number of threads needed based on your current nose shape. Results can be seen immediately after treatment and our doctor and medical staff will give you some post care tips.
How can The Chelsea Clinic help?
The results of Nose Threadlift rely primarily on both the doctor’s skills and materials used. The board of doctors at The Chelsea Clinic are experienced and certified in the areas of aesthetics and we carry suitable nose threads from Korea.
When the correct threads are selected and sufficiently used, the lifting, scaffolding and contouring effects of the nose is maximized, given the patient the optimal results. As such, there is little downtime or side effects, hence minimizing pain, time and cost.
Possible side effects:
Nose Threadlift is a procedure with a very good safety profile. The procedure itself is done under strict sterile conditions to minimise any risk of infection. The placement of the threads is normally done in such a way that no scars will be visible.
As with fillers, some discomfort, redness and bruising may occur immediately after the procedure but this is temporary. Korean threadlifts are not associated with vascular complications, which is a rare side effect for fillers.
How long does it last?
The embedded threads normally completely dissolves after about 6 months but the collagen that forms during that time will help to support the new shape of the nose for a much longer period. Therefore, Nose Threadlift normally lasts for 1 to 1.5 years.
However, similar procedure can be repeated after 6-12 months for best results.
Fillers VS Threadlifts
1. Threadlifts can help to achieve a higher nose tip as compared to nose fillers.
2. Threadlifts are not associated with the rare vascular complications and risks that fillers have.
3. Threadlifts does not broaden the nose, an occurrence that is not uncommon with nose fillers.
4. Nose fillers and threadlifts tend to last for quite a while and treatments can be repeated when the effects start to fade away. In fact, nose fillers and threadlifts can be done in accompaniment to further enhance the effects. This results in a dramatic and longer-lasting nose contour.
