If you are unhappy with the shape of your nose, if it’s asymmetrical or you want to reduce the appearance of any humps, you can trust our expertise at DestinationSkin
We are dedicated in achieving natural looking results and by using our vast knowledge of facial structures, we will work to find out which nose shape will ensure you the most beautiful, subtle look
How does Nose Reshaping work?
Our Nose Reshaping treatment works to lift and transform the shape of your nose without making any incisions. We prefer taking a non-surgical approach and our natural Juvéderm® fillers are are manufactured by Allergen who are the world’s leading supplier of cosmetic pharmaceuticals. By exclusively using their products, we can guarantee their quality and high clinical testing.
Juvéderm® fillers are made of the naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid. When Hyaluronic Acid is formed into a gel-like substance and infused just below the skin’s surface, it becomes the ultimate, gentle, redefinition tool. The fillers work to restore balance to your face and can be used to enhance or reduce the appearance of the bridge and tip of the nose.
When the fillers are applied, they immediately begin binding and retaining water molecules, naturally hydrating the skin and stimulating plumping receptors beneath the surface. As Hyaluronic Acid is one of the key proteins in the body that keeps the skin looking youthful, it’s a completely natural plumper! In small concentrated doses it is a very effective means of creating beautifully subtle contours, ideal for straightening and defining the nose region.
Is Nose Reshaping right for me?
If the shape of your nose makes you feel self-conscious, or if you’re unhappy with the way it sits within the rest of your face, Nose Reshaping is a simple alternative to restore your confidence and create a natural-looking difference.
During your free consultation, our practitioners will dedicatedly guide you through all our reshaping options that can help you achieve the result you want. Depending on what you wish to alter, we may recommend you use another restructuring treatment that will produce better outcomes. This treatment works specifically to alter only the nose area, yet we have many treatments that can work well to generate a more balanced definition to your face and body, depending on where you want to target.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically 1-2 treatments are needed, yet this depends upon the desired result. As Juvéderm® fillers are formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, it is a semi-permeant treatment lasting for around 12-18 months. This is because Hyaluronic Acid is naturally biodegradable and the body eventually breaks it down which may mean a repeated treatment is required to maintain the same results.
What other areas can be Reshaped?
This treatment is specifically for reshaping the nose area, although we do have many other treatments options available which will be more suited to restructuring other areas of the face and body, such as Dermal Fillers. Depending on your desired outcome, we can help you decide which treatment route would help you achieve this result best.
What results can I expect?
This final outcome generally varies on an individual basis as each client wants something different. With Nose Reshaping, we are often asked to soften any humps on the bridge of the nose.
Typically after this treatment, many clients see an improvement in their side profile, with their nose looking much more smooth and defined, with no visible disruptions to the bridge’s silhouette.
Prior to your treatment, we recommend that you avoid any alcohol consumption for 24 hours.
We also advice you avoid using any Retinol, Glycolic or Salicylic Acid products for 1-2 weeks before your 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.
Before & Afters
|Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping|
A quick and simple procedure to correct bumps, soften and improve the profile of the nose.
Following your reshaping treatment, you should also avoid consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours as this will minimise the risk of bruising on the injection sites.
You should also avoid going to the gym or using any leisure facilities like steam rooms, saunas or swimming pools to ensure the best results.
If you wear glasses that sit on the treated area, we advise you avoid wearing these for 12 hours after the treatment. You should also avoid touching the treated areas as it increases the risk of infection.
Please do not apply any make-up on the treated area also, we usually recommend you switching briefly to mineral-based cosmetics which we will happily apply for you after the treatment. Our preferred brand is YoungBlood as they are formulated from 100% organic ingredients which shouldn’t irritate the injection sites.
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 and 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:
- Persistent swelling that does not pass
- Increase in pain that worsens over time
- Skin feeling hot to the touch and increased reddening
- 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
- General feeling of un-wellness in the days following your treatment
Q: What if I don’t like the results or it looks too unnatural?
A: You loving your results is something we cannot guarantee, although what we can guarantee is our expertise, safety and dedication at achieving your desired results. By using only the highest quality products and safety practices, we can ensure that every treatment is undergone align with our high protocols. Our medical practitioners are also clinically trained professionals and will endeavour to completely understand your expectations and desires during your consultation. Every treatment we perform is a personalised and modified, with your interests always at the forefront of the procedure.
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 to any 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 may make any bruising worse
- After your treatment, please closely follow the aftercare advice given to you and please do not apply anything else to the treatment area, unless previously discussed.
Q: How much recovery time is there after treatments?
A: With all injectable treatments, sometimes bruising and swelling can occur which is perfectly normal and should subside within 24 hours. Bruising can last a couple of days however you can apply mineral make-up to easily 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, scarring and permanency.
Q: Is Nose Reshaping safe?
A: Of course! Our Nose Reshaping has been performed for many years and as we use only Juvéderm® Hyaluronic Acid fillers which are naturally compatible with the skin. All our products are manufactured by the global aesthetic brand, Allergan, which are renowned for their throughout clinical testing and high quality. Also, as this treatment is semi-permeant, the effects will not last forever which makes them a much safer option to cosmetic surgery.
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 your treatment, so just enjoy your natural and defined look!
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!.
