Nose out of joint? LaserMedica can help with non-surgical Rhinoplasty
“Sometimes all you want is a small change, like a more even bridge, and in this case using dermal filler is an excellent alternative to Rhinoplasty. There is no recovery time needed and it’s not uncomfortable for the patient.”
– Dr. Zoe Filyk
Non-surgical rhinoplasty represents a new alternative available to those who want to change the shape of their nose temporarily, without going under the knife. The benefits of non-surgical rhinoplasty for a nose job are faster results, reduced pain and a faster recovery time. If you want to change the shape of your nose, but don’t want to go through surgery, a non-surgical nose job may be the right option for you.
This is a great alternative for those who want minor to moderate changes in their nose shape. A non-surgical nose job involves using an injectable material, of which dermal fillers are some of the most popular options, in order to reshape the nose. Dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injections can be used to even out bumps or other imperfections in the contours of the nose.
It takes about 15 minutes to inject dermal fillers into targeted locations in the nose. Using a fine needle, these injections require no anesthesia and are relatively painless. This is a single-session treatment. This can have a variety of effects depending on the exact placement of the injections. For example, it may turn up a ‘drooping’ nose tip or smooth wrinkles on the nose. The results of a non-surgical nose job using anti wrinkle injections or dermal fillers last from six months to two years, after which time the nose will begin to regain its previous appearance.
This injectable is also used to treat frown lines and other facial wrinkles, where it acts as an alternative to facelifts and other invasive surgical procedures.
After dermal filler has been injected, do not rub the treated area for 12 hours. The most common side effects include numbness, tingling or temporary bruising. There is no recovery time; patients who receive non-surgical nosejobs using dermal filler such as Juvederm, or anti wrinkle injections, can return to their normal life nearly immediately, with no bandages over the nose.
