Nose Threadlift and Fillers

Nose Threadlift and Fillers

NOSE AUGMENTATION (THREADS VS FILLERS)


HOW DOES IT WORK:

In the past, the only way to augment the nose was via surgical options like rhinoplasty which is invasive with long down time, painful and carries a relatively higher risk of infection. This made surgical methods unpopular.
Now, with newer technologies, materials, and techniques, non-invasive nose augmentation utilising nose threads and nose fillers is now the preferred method of choice. They are not only quicker to perform (15mins), they also have less risk involved compared to surgical options, but with immediate results.
Every individual’s nose is different, some noses are more suitable for thread lifts, while others have better results with fillers and in some cases a combination of both is necessary for optimal results.


HIGHER NOSE BRIDGE:

Fillers are recommended to give an immediate increase in volume and nose bridge height for individuals with a flat or low nose bridge. Although nose threads can achieve a similar effective, many threads are required which will increase costs and is not a cost effective option. Threads are more suitable for individuals who already have some nose height but would like to achieve better definition.


CONTOURED/STRAIGHTER NOSE:

Nose threads are highly recommended for sculpting a more defined nose. They are very effective in creating a sharper and straighter nose by lifting the midline of the nose from the tip right up to the bridge to achieve a significantly sharper sculpted nose without increasing the width of the nose.


SMALLER/SHARPER NOSE TIP:

Previously, nose fillers were used to create a sharper nose tip. However, there is a small risk that overfilling or movement of filler can cause the nose tip to look broader. Nose threads are more effective in augmenting the nose tip to make it sharper and smaller by utilising tiny anchoring points like cogs to lift the nose up during insertion without any risk of making the tip larger. The threads create a foundation and scaffolding effect which gives a much sharper and lifted tip relative to fillers.


HOW LONG DO FILLERS AND THREADS LAST:

The duration of effect for fillers normally lasts 12-24 months depending on the type of fillers used, whether they are hyaluronic acid based or non-hyaluronic acid based, lifestyle of the individual and body absorption.
The duration of threads is also dependent on the material of the threads, namely PDO/PLLA/PLC which are mostly based on dissolvable surgical sutures, as well as lifestyle. They typically lasts 9-24 months and are completely dissolved after insertion.


THREAD AND FILLER COMBINATION:

Shiro Aesthetic Clinic understands that every individual has different needs. Depending on your unique condition, we may recommend using a combination of both fillers and threads. Fillers are introduced first to provide volume to give a significantly higher nose bridge, after which threads are inserted to achieve a sharper, contoured nose and smaller, lifted nose tip. Combination of both threads and fillers also last longer than if used singly.


WHAT ARE THE COSTS INVOLVED:

Nose threads costs slightly more than fillers. Pricing is dependent on the amount of threads or fillers used. Do contact us for enquiries regarding the method of choice for nose augmentation and the amount of material required.
