And this is our guide to everything you should know about using nose fillers to alter the shape of the nose.
What are nose fillers?
Dermal fillers can add volume, or change or alter the shape of the nose itself. These dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occuring acid found throughout the body, where it bonds with water molecules and provides effective nourishment and nutrition to the skin cells. As a result, injecting this into the skin can make cells healthier and alter the structure of the skin, while also increasing volume in a localised area. Nose fillers are injections of this dermal filler into different areas of the nose.
So how can nose fillers be used to change the shape of the nose?
Nose fillers can be used effectively in three different ways to alter and reshape the nose. Nose fillers can help to:
- Narrow the bridge of the nose
- Lift the nose
- Correct nasal asymmetry
Using dermal fillers to narrow the bridge of the nose
The breadth of the nose can appear wider or smaller depending on light reflections from the bridge of the nose. As a result, dermal filler can be injected into specific areas across the nose, tracing the areas of the skin where the most light reflects. This can create a smaller appearance of the nose, but this can only be implemented by a qualified, trained, highly skilled practitioner, otherwise the results will not be the same.
Using dermal fillers to lift the nose
As a natural part of the ageing process, the skin can lose elasticity and volume which can cause the skin to sag and droop. This can also happen to the end of the nose, causing the nose to dip down lower than usual. Dermal filler can be injected at the very base of the nose to relift this area and leave the nose looking attractive without being over elevated.
Using dermal fillers to correct nasal asymmetry
An asymmetrical nose can be something that causes self-consciousness, and can lower self esteem. But this can be easily resolved with subtle and strategic injections of dermal filler. A highly skilled professional can inject dermal fillers to recontour and reshape the nose. This can include filing out dents or dips, or minimising the appearance of bumps.
What are the advantages of nose fillers?
There are a number of advantages to choosing nose fillers to alter the nose shape, including:
- Non-surgical solution – the only other alternative to changing the shape of the nose is to have nasal surgery, which involves hospital treatment and a lot of recovery time. Nose fillers are non-surgical and do not require this downtime, leaving you to enjoy the rest of your day.
- Natural results – nose fillers create subtle and natural results that alter the facial structure in a way that suits your face.
