Our clinical team are all experts at achieving gentle, natural looking results.

The results of this treatment are immediate so you can walk out of the clinic feeling like a whole new you!
How does non-surgical nose reshaping work?
Nose reshaping works by placing naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid under the surface of your skin to redefine the structure of your nose. Our team are highly skilled in using Juvederm products, which are Hyaluronic Acid based fillers that can be used to fill areas of the nose to rebalance the structure. The most common areas to fill are the bridge of the nose and also the tip, which helps to create a more defined look.
Is nose reshaping right for me?
If you are self-conscious about the shape of your nose and how it sits with the rest of your face, then our non-surgical approach is an easy, non-invasive way to make a difference to your nose and how you feel about it. This treatment is specific for the nose area however we do have many other treatments which can restructure areas of the face and body.
How many treatments will I need?
Generally 1-2 treatments are needed, depending upon the desired results. As Juvederm is made up of Hyaluronic Acid which naturally breaks down in the body, results last around 12-18 months.
Can areas other than the nose be reshaped?
This treatment is specific for the nose area however we do have many other treatments which can restructure areas of the face and body, such as dermal fillers.
What results can I expect?
The results will be discussed on an individual basis. We are most often asked to soften the ridge in the bridge of the nose. The treatment results for this leave your side profile better defined with no visible bumps on the bridge.
Prior to treatment, we ask that you avoid alcohol for 24 hours. We also ask that you avoid acid based products for around 1 week prior to the treatment.
Before & Afters
|Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping|
A quick and simple procedure to correct bumps, soften and improve the profile of the nose.
After the treatment we ask that you avoid alcohol for 24 hours. You should also avoid gyms, saunas and steam rooms to ensure best results. If you wear glasses and they sit on the area to be treated we would advise avoiding wearing these for 12 hours after the treatment. We can apply mineral make-up in clinic following your treatment.
Q: How will I know if the side effects are normal, or something serious has happened?
A: After your treatment, the common effects are mild redness, slight swelling and possible bruising. The treatment area may feel tender to touch and all of these effects are normal, will subside in a few days, but may last up to a week. Each day everything should improve slightly and the area should look more normal and feel better.
It is very uncommon to have any serious side effects, however if you do experience any of the following, please call the clinic immediately, or if after hours, seek help from a GP or A&E:
- swelling that is getting worse as time passes
- increase in pain and getting more severe with time
- skin feeling hot, redness increasing and becoming worse in time
- skin near the treatment area or along the side of the nose looking pale/white or greyish in colour on the day or day after the treatment, and pain increasing in this area
- generally feeling unwell in the days following your treatment
Q: What if I don’t like the results or it looks too unnatural?
A: Our Medical Injectors are experienced with all aspects of HA Dermal Fillers and the type of results that can be achieved. Dermal filler treatment is not ‘one size fits all’, and the injector will discuss the best ‘look’ for you in your bespoke, detailed consultation. We can assure you that your treatment will be delivered safely, and in accordance with your wishes based on a thorough consultation. Dermal Fillers are a popular treatment because most people are really happy with the results. Your Medical Injector will endeavour to completely understand your expectations, however we cannot guarantee how much you will love the result!
Q: Is it safe to have any treatment if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
A: We do not recommend that you have any injectable treatments if you suspect or can confirm that you are pregnant. We also recommend that you have completely finished breast feeding before returning for your aesthetic treatments.
Q: What can I do to ensure I get the best results from my injectable treatments?
A: Here are a few tips to optimise the outcome of your treatment:
- Avoid having any alcohol the day before your treatment. This will help to minimise the chance of bruising.
- In the week before your treatment, try to avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen or any other type of anti-inflammatory medication as this will also increase your risk of a bruise occurring.
- For Dermal Fillers – please do not plan to have any other skin treatments (peels, facials, microdermabrasion, micro needling) for 1 week prior and 2 weeks after your dermal filler treatment.
- If you have been unwell with a cold virus, cold sore (herpes) or any other skin rash or condition, please phone the clinic to check if you should still attend your appointment. Your general medical health is important, and we are happy to reschedule your aesthetic treatment if necessary.
- After your treatment, please closely follow the aftercare advice given to you by your Medical Injector, and please do not apply anything else to the treatment area, unless previously discussed.
Q: How much recovery time is there after treatments?
A: Sometimes bruising and swelling can appear which is normal and the swelling will subside within 24 hours. Bruising can last a couple of days however you can apply mineral make up to cover the area.
Q: How is it different from other treatments?
A: This treatment is an alternative to a rhinoplasty (surgery) and is far less invasive, which means less recovery time and scarring.
Q: Is nose reshaping safe?
A: Nose reshaping has been performed for many years and as we use only Hyaluronic acid fillers which are compatible with the skin and are non-permanent they are very safe.
Q: How do I know if I’m suitable?
A: A consultation with our medical injector team will determine your suitability.
Q: How quickly will I notice results?
A: The results are visible immediately after treatment.
What our clients say
I was recommended to visit Destination Skin in Knightsbridge by my good friend who has been a regular client. They booked me at the day and time I wanted. I came in for a consultation, and was greeted by lovely friendly staff, they made me feel so relaxed and comfortable. It made it easier to trust them, as I wanted to get laser treatment. I am extremely happy with my results and I cant wait to go back to try other treatments!.
