What is Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping?
Jessica Alba. Natalie Portman. Scarlett Johannson. There are many beauty flaws these women need not worry about, but their noses are certainly one of them. Small, straight, smooth, and not a bump or bend in sight. But what about the rest of us, those who haven’t won the genetic lottery? Are we just stuck with our flawed noses, for better or worse, unless we undergo risky surgery and have a…nose job?
If you still live in the 90’s, sure. But twenty-five years later? We’ve moved on.
So how does it work?
Reshaping a nose can now be done using safe, simple Dermal Fillers, smoothing bumps and bends in much the same way that a plasterer smooths away the textured ceiling mistakes of past decades. A skilled, qualified cosmetic nurse can use the fillers to raise less pronounced parts of your nose, but leave any bumps alone. Not only this, but smoothing the shape of your nose alters people’s perceptions of it, making it seem smaller. This skilful use of modern cosmetics allows us to create a smooth slope from top to bottom. No surgery. No scalpels. No unfortunate looking bandages trapping you indoors.
Dermal Fillers are a safe and effective alternative to surgery. Abby Stacey only uses the highest quality fillers which are mainly composed of a gel-like substance naturally occurring in our bodies, known as Hyaluronic Acid. This substance is also used as a component in many medical treatments, it is safe and reversible.
Aha…So what do I have to do to get this?
The procedure is similar to other Dermal Filler based treatments, and is similarly quick, easy and safe.
Firstly you would need to come in to a clinic, so a trained cosmetic nurse could examine your nose and make note of the size and shape of any bumps or other imperfections, before planning the optimum treatment for you.
The effects of Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping are immediate and safe, performed correctly by a qualified cosmetic nurse, they will resolve themselves without any bruising or complications. Once complete, the treatment will last for 9-12 months, after which time a repeat treatment is recommended.
The treatment itself is relatively straightforward and will only take 15-20 minutes. A local anaesthetic is used to ensure the procedure is as painless as possible, and from there your nurse will inject Dermal Filler in the required areas. From there, your treatment is complete, and it’s simply a matter of aftercare.
Yeah, but I bet it has some side effects! What do I need to watch out for?
After treatment, you may be advised to stop wearing makeup for up to 12 hours. You should also avoid the sun, and hot places such as saunas and steam rooms, for 2 weeks. Some people experience a little temporary tenderness, swelling or bruising around the injection sites. It’s best of course, to avoid additional treatments in the same area for at least a week. Other than those little annoyances, you should have no side effects, and can begin enjoying your new, perfectly smooth nose!
