Nose Reshaping with Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Nose reshaping – or non-surgical rhinoplasty – is the new, safe and non-invasive alternative to surgery.
The procedure consists of an injection of hyaluronic acid filler into key areas around the nose to change the overall shape to give you the nose you’ve always wanted.
As the nose is the central feature of the face, it has a significant effect on facial aesthetics. The nasal contours and the nasal tip strongly define the character of the nose, which is the reason surgical reduction or alteration of the tip was once very popular. However, this is becoming less desirable due to the risks, complications and long recovery times that accompany surgical procedures.
The use of dermal fillers can change the appearance of your nose if you are unhappy about the shape, or have an unattractive bump, depression or asymmetry. Also ideal if you have had an accident which has caused a deformity or have had nasal surgery and are not quite happy with the results. A tip projection can also be carried out which involves inserting the dermal filler in the tip of the nose to give an upturned appearance. This makes the nasal contours symmetrical and more defined.

At SkinMedico, we offer you a full medical assessment prior to your first treatment. During the consultation, your wishes and expectations will be discussed and your nasal profile will be examined and assessed in relation to your overall facial structure. The nose should be proportionate to the facial width and height. Chin and lip projection in relation to the nose is also taken into account. This process gives you a great opportunity to ask all the questions that you might have and discuss the treatment plan. Dermal Fillers can be carried out alone or in combination with other treatments like Botox®.
