Results of nose thread lift are impressive and there is virtually no risk of blindness.
  • Are Nose Threads Safe?
    The threads that we use for nose thread lift are made of polydioxanone (PDO). 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.
  • Who is generally suitable for Nose Threads?
    Nose Threads is a well-tolerated procedure, most men and women in their 20s to 60s or even beyond may be suited to a thread lift. It is viewed as particularly suitable for people who cannot or do not want to have a permanent procedure and are looking for a non-invasive, fast and convenient procedure.
  • How Many Sessions Are Needed to See Result?
    One treatment is enough to see visible result. With the correct type of threads used and correct placement of the threads, you should be able to see good result after one treatment. The threads will remain in the nose for 6 months. When they dissolve, the nose will remain in its lifted position for another 8 to 12 months because of the stimulation of collagen from the threads. If repeated regularly, you may see result lasting for up to 24 months or even longer, depending on individual.
  • What improvements can I see in Nose Thread Lift?
    Patients who have various nose concerns can experience beneficial, enhanced results from a nose thread lift, creating improvements such as: Slimming wide nostrils Smoothing out a nasal hump Projecting the nasal tip Lifting the nose tip Filling depressions in nasal walls Correcting a crooked nose due to surgery or trauma Preventing nasal obstruction by reducing nasal passage collapse
  • What is a Nose Thread lift?
    Also known as a ‘lunchtime nose job’, the nose thread lift is a treatment that can be completed in under 60 minutes. Because of the minimal downtime, patients can resume their daily activities immediately after. Threads are inserted gently into the soft tissue of the areas to be lifted and a local anaesthetic is used to calm the area and ensure a comfortable experience. The absorbable threads dissolve within 18-24 months, but before they dissolve they create a support scaffolding of collagen for the skin that supports and lifts the skin for many years to come.

Downtime for the treatment.

Bruising and swelling is very common. Swelling and tenderness is expected up to 7 days post treatment.
