How Long Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Last

How Long Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Last?

The allure of non-surgical rhinoplasty, often referred to as the “liquid nose job,” lies not only in its immediate results but also in its temporary nature. If you’re curious about how long these non-surgical transformations last, you’ve come to the right place. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore the intricacies of non-surgical rhinoplasty’s duration, shedding light on what you can expect from this remarkable procedure.

 

A Temporary Transformation

One of the things that our clients like about the ‘liquid nose job’ is that it is temporary, unlike its surgical alternative. Non-surgical rhinoplasty uses carefully and strategically placed dermal fillers to improve nose imperfections, such as bumps, on the nose.

Dermal fillers are made out of a synthetic version of the hyaluronic acid found naturally throughout the body. To call non-surgical rhinoplasty the ‘liquid nose job’ is false because dermal fillers are not actually ‘liquid’. Fillers come in gel form and vary in thickness; different thicknesses are used for different concerns and the depth at which they need to be placed. If dermal fillers were actually ‘liquid’ the product would disperse quite quickly throughout your tissues rather than staying in the place you put it to create the smoothing, or filling, effect required in a non-surgical nose job treatment.

Dermal fillers are commonly used in aesthetic medicine to fill and smooth wrinkles and to rebuild the volume that has been lost in your fat pads; a really common example is the cheeks. Much like naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, the synthetic version designed specifically for medical-aesthetic treatments, is gradually broken down and removed by the body, making non-surgical rhinoplasty results temporary.

 

The Durability Factor

Although non-surgical rhinoplasty is temporary, that does not mean that the results are short-lived. As I mentioned a moment ago, your body will gradually break down the dermal fillers used for your ‘liquid nose job’. How quickly you metabolise the filler is 100% unique to you and there will be multiple factors contributing to the longevity of your non-surgical nose treatment results; these include how fast your natural metabolism is, amongst other things that I’ll delve into in more detail later.

In our experience, the average patient will require further treatment about 18 months down the line; some sooner and some will get longer out of their results. This usually varies from 12 to 24 months.

Revisiting the Procedure

Sometimes practitioners choose to perform the non-surgical nose treatment in phases; it may be done in one session or you may have the complete treatment throughout two different sessions. This is something that will be discussed with you before your treatment.

Additionally, the wonderful thing about dermal fillers is that you can tweak the results; if required, and appropriate, further products can be placed. Equally, dermal fillers can be dissolved. So, unlike surgical nose job results, non-surgical nose job results can be tweaked.

One thing that you should be fully aware of when it comes to your non-surgical nose job results is that they require maintenance. If you are not prepared to have ongoing treatments due to the temporary nature of the non-surgical nose job then you may be more satisfied exploring surgical rhinoplasty. Should you decide that you no longer wish to maintain your non-surgical rhinoplasty results, no problem! Simply don’t have further treatments and your body will gradually remove the dermal filler that’s there.

 

The Appeal of Flexibility

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is temporary; I know, I know I sound like a stuck record but sometimes in our excitement we overlook aspects of a treatment and then further down the line those things we overlook gradually become important to us. Hey, we’re all human.

The fact that the results are temporary often makes the liquid nose job an interesting option for those who are unsure about permanent changes; this is, after all, literally in the middle of your face. It’s natural to feel nervous about making changes to your features. For some people, they’ll never want, or may not be a candidate for, surgical rhinoplasty. For others who ultimately want the permanent solution that surgery can offer, non-surgical rhinoplasty is a good way for them to understand what some of those more permanent changes may look like. Have a look at some of our non-surgical rhinoplasty before and after images to see what can be done.

 

The Natural Process

The reason why the non-surgical nose job is temporary is because it uses dermal fillers made from a synthetic version of the hyaluronic acid (H.A.) found naturally within our skin and tissues. H.A. is essentially a sugar molecule that provides volume and ensures the tissues are hydrated.

The body has naturally occurring enzymes that break your natural stores of H.A. down. The same happens with the synthetic H.A. used in the non-surgical nose job- enzyme activity breaks it down over time and the effects gradually diminish.

 

Personal Variations

The breakdown process of H.A. dermal filler varies among individuals. We’re talking about the human body here, no two people are the same. This process is influenced by many factors, including metabolism, genetics, and lifestyle. This is why no practitioner can guarantee exactly how long your results will last, although they can give you an approximate of the expected longevity based on experience.

Things that tend to age us naturally, such as smoking and a poor diet, will contribute to the breakdown of dermal fillers. If the skin and supporting tissues are not being supported with a healthy blood flow and a good oxygen supply, nor nutrients that support skin health, then your natural hyaluronic acid AND any synthetic H.A. tend to break down faster.

 

Ensuring Optimal Outcomes

It’s important to find a practitioner who is firstly qualified to perform this advanced dermal filler technique and understand the complexities of facial anatomy and secondly, someone who uses high-quality dermal fillers. These two factors can greatly increase the ability of the practitioner to work on your nose imperfections correctly.

We’d always recommend seeking a practitioner who has medical qualifications for any treatment that requires injections. It sounds quite obvious when you read that in black and white but aesthetic treatments can be a very confusing world, what with people in the UK currently requiring absolutely NO qualifications to buy dermal fillers and inject you with them (and charge you for the pleasure). Sadly, this is by no means rare… oh yes, we’ve heard all sorts of horror stories.

One way to help sort the qualified from the, well, not qualified is by using a directory such as Save Face.

 

Weighing the Pros and Cons

You may be able to get a good flavour of the benefits and the possible risks that come with non-surgical rhinoplasty during your research, however, a consultation will clarify those for you.

Before having a consultation, it may be worth considering exactly what you want to achieve from treatment so that your practitioner can tell you if your expectations are likely to be met with the non-surgical nose job. Would you like to change the shape of your nose tip, address a drooping nasal tip or do you have a slightly crooked nose?

Remember, you’re not going to find the answer to whether or not the non-surgical nose job is worth it for you on Google; you have your own unique goals, medical background, budget, and preferences and only you can answer that for yourself. It’s all about making informed decisions about the non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure itself.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a transformative procedure known for its immediate results and temporary nature. These results can be transformative but the temporary nature of the results allows you to walk away from them, should you wish.

Understanding the duration of these results is essential for those considering this non-invasive option. While results typically last from 12 to 24 months, individual factors play a significant role. The flexibility to maintain, adjust, or revert to the natural appearance makes non-surgical rhinoplasty an attractive choice for those seeking changes without the permanence of surgery. As you embark on this journey, remember to consult with qualified practitioners to ensure optimal outcomes and a fulfilling experience.

Non-Surgical Nose Job FAQs

How Much Filler Is Used in Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
+

When considering a non-surgical nose job, determining the required amount of filler hinges greatly on the individual’s desired outcome. Surprisingly, even minimal filler adjustments can yield noticeable enhancements in the nose’s shape and contour. Yet, the precise quantity varies, influenced by factors such as the unique dimensions of one’s nose, specific corrective needs, and the type of filler chosen for the procedure. Essentially, it’s a personalized approach tailored to your preferences and anatomy.

Imagine this process akin to sculpting. Just as a sculptor carefully adds or removes clay to achieve the desired form, a skilled practitioner strategically administers filler to refine and enhance the nose’s appearance. And much like sculpting, it’s both an art and a science, with each adjustment carefully calculated to achieve natural-looking results.

So, whether you’re seeking subtle refinement or more significant changes, rest assured that the amount of filler utilized will be precisely determined to meet your goals while ensuring harmony with your facial features. It’s about achieving the ideal balance between enhancement and maintaining your unique aesthetic identity.

Will Having Non-surgical Rhinoplasty Affect My Breathing?
+

Curious about the effects of non-surgical rhinoplasty on your breathing? Let’s clear the air.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty involves carefully injecting fillers into the nose to sculpt its shape and contour, all without disturbing the internal nasal structures crucial for breathing.

It’s important to note that if you already have a pre-existing breathing issue related to the structural aspects of your nose, non-surgical rhinoplasty won’t address this concern. This procedure is primarily cosmetic and isn’t intended to fix functional problems like breathing difficulties. So, breathe easy knowing that non-surgical rhinoplasty focuses solely on enhancing your appearance, leaving your breathing uninterrupted.

How Soon After Having the Dermal Fillers Injected Will I See Results?
+

Wondering when you’ll start seeing the effects of non-surgical rhinoplasty? Well, as soon as those dermal fillers are skillfully injected and sculpted by your aesthetic practitioner, you’ll notice a difference. Picture this: you might catch a glimpse of your enhanced profile right then and there in the clinic, fresh off the procedure!

But here’s the deal: expect a bit of initial swelling. So, for the most accurate assessment of your new look, give it about one to two weeks. That’s when any swelling will have settled down, giving you a clear picture of your refined appearance.

In short, the transformation begins right away, with the final reveal unfolding gradually over the following days. It’s all part of the process, and we’re here to guide you every step of the way.

Can I Continue My Unusual Skincare Routine After My Non-surgical Rhinoplasty Treatment?
+

Can I stick to my unique skincare routine following my non-surgical rhinoplasty treatment? Taking care of your skin post-procedure is crucial, especially after undergoing non-surgical nose treatments. The good news is, that you can largely continue with your usual skincare regimen, but with a few tweaks.

Right after your treatment, it’s wise to steer clear of any intense skincare rituals or products that could potentially irritate the treated area. This means avoiding anything with retinoids or acids for the time being. Additionally, be gentle when washing or moisturizing the treated area—no need to apply too much pressure.

Think of it as giving your nose a little extra TLC while it heals. It’s all about ensuring a smooth recovery and maximizing the benefits of your procedure. If you have any concerns or questions about your skincare routine post-treatment, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate for A Non-surgical Nose Job?
+

Wondering if a non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty is right for you? Let’s break it down.

The perfect candidate for this non-invasive procedure is someone looking for subtle tweaks to their nose—maybe smoothing out a bump or enhancing symmetry—without committing to surgery just yet.

Health-wise, it’s best to be in good shape overall with healthy skin. And it’s crucial to have realistic expectations about the outcome. Remember, the changes are temporary, so being comfortable with that is key.

Think of it as a way to test-drive your ideal nose without the permanent commitment. It’s like trying on different outfits before settling on the perfect one. Plus, with the right care, the results can stick around for a good while.

So, if you’re curious about enhancing your nose without going under the knife with traditional rhinoplasty, a non-surgical rhinoplasty could be just the thing for you.

Do You Have Any Post Treatment Advice?
+

So, you’ve taken the leap and opted for a non-surgical nose job – congratulations. Now, to ensure you get the most out of your cosmetic procedure, let’s dive into some helpful post-care guidelines:

  1. Hands Off, Please: In the immediate aftermath, it’s best to resist the urge to touch your nose excessively. Give the filler some time to settle in without any unintended nudges.
  2. Makeup-Free Zone: For the next 24 hours, let your nose breathe sans makeup. This helps minimize the risk of irritation or infection, allowing your skin to recover peacefully.
  3. Take a Break from the Gym: Give your nose a breather from heavy workouts and sweaty activities for at least a day post-treatment. It’s all about letting your nose heal without any unnecessary strain.
  4. Shade Seeker: Keep your nose under wraps from direct sunlight and tanning beds for about a week. Your skin might be feeling a tad sensitive, so slap on some SPF 30+ sunscreen when venturing outdoors to shield against UV radiation.
  5. Sauna-Free Zone: Steer clear of saunas for the next week – the heat can ramp up swelling and slow down the healing process. Give your nose the cool treatment it deserves.
  6. Blood Thinners Beware: Say no to blood-thinning agents like aspirin and certain supplements for a few days after your treatment to minimize the risk of bruising.
  7. Ease Up on the Glasses: If you’re a specs or shades aficionado, consider giving them a bit of a break for the next couple of weeks. Too much pressure on the nose can affect your results, so let your nose enjoy some freedom.

Remember, these post-treatment tips are here to support your healing journey and ensure you get the best results from your non-surgical rhinoplasty. If you have any concerns or questions along the way, don’t hesitate to reach out.

    I had an excellent Hydrafacial which was recommended to me by Jane. I had my treatment with Nikki, who was so friendly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. She was so professional and gave me all the information about each step of the facial. She struck the perfect balance between getting to know me/building a rapport, and also giving me the chance to switch off and relax. It was a lovely treatment and I’m so grateful to Nikki for all her knowledge and skill. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I received so many compliments about my “glowing skin”! Thank you for making it such a personable experience. We also added on the Slimyonik treatment which was so lovely and relaxing. I was able to add this on last minute after being recommended by Kerri. Again, tailoring the treatment to me personally added so much to my overall experience. I’m so glad I added this to the treatment and would recommend the skin to love clinic to anyone. Thank you Nikki, Jane & Kerri.
