The doctor inserts the PDO thread into the tip of the nose. To prevent any pain, the doctor uses an anaesthetic cream to numb the area. This is a fast and simple procedure that takes around 30 minutes to complete.

The doctor makes scaffolds using a blunt cannula. This will help achieve the ideal height and projection of the nose. Since there is no interference with the blood vessels, there are no risks involved with nose thread lift.

Furthermore, one of the main advantages is the immediate results. You can see a marked difference as soon as the procedures compete.

After the treatment, the results will last for one year or longer after which you will need to go back for another treatment. The second treatment, however, can produce longer-lasting results since the nose will already be used to the threads and the shape.

You will experience soreness for the next 3 to 5 days. However, this is mild and you can resume work immediately. Just make sure to avoid strenuous tasks.

After the procedure is completed and the effects of the anaesthetic nose cream run out, you may begin to experience swelling and soreness. You can deal with this by placing a cold compress.

Make sure to avoid any anti-inflammation medication. Secondly, if you are in pain you can use pain medication such as paracetamol. Furthermore, if your doctor prescribes antibiotics, always ensure that you complete the dosage.

What are nose threads in Singapore made from?

Doctors use Polydiaxanone threads in various surgical procedures. They are biocompatible and over the course of the healing process will be fully absorbed by the body.

HIKO nose threads are not as smooth as the normal polydioxanone threads. They instead have cogs. This allows them to provide good scaffolding strength. Furthermore, it results in longer-lasting effects.

Depending on your individual situation, the doctor will place nose threads at different locations. Furthermore, the doctor may use threads of different thicknesses.

Before you commit to the procedure, start by booking an appointment with the doctor. He or she will analyze and evaluate your nose structure and ask you about your goals. Then they will decide on the best type of treatment.
