Our noses are a fairly useful facial protrusion; they can be used for breathing, smelling sweet scents, or not so sweet ones, and they are in the front line of bodily defences for our immune system. However, our noses are a key element of our facial features for overall facial symmetry and balance, indeed the nose has long been crucial in considerations of what encompasses aesthetic human beauty.
How could this not be so, when it occupies the very centre of your face quite literally standing out from your other features. In fact, in both art and life, the curious aesthetic of the nose has for millennia been a subject of particular interest.
So, with so much responsibility ladened upon that particular facial projection what are the odds that your nose is perfect? Without bumps, and perfectly symmetrical? The odds are low, most of us have aspects of our nose that we would change and the good news for the nose is that you can have nose bump removal without the risk and downtime incurred by undergoing surgery.
What Is A Nose Bump?
Many people who avoid their profile and hide behind their hands during family group shots seek nose bump removal, in fact, it is one of the most sort after non-surgical procedures. But what causes the protuberance in the first place?
Dorsal humps, or nose bumps are cartilage and bone irregularities beneath the skin of the nose. These irregularities can cause a hump in the outline of a person’s nose, instead of a straight slope from the bridge of the nose to the tip.
For most people, there’s nothing unhealthy or dangerous about these naturally occurring bumps. But some feel self-conscious about the way dorsal humps look and seek nose-bump removal. Some people inherit them from parents and although they don’t always appear in childhood, they may appear during puberty when the nose is still developing.
A dorsal hump can also occur when there has been some trauma or injury to your nose. A bruise on your nose or a broken nose can result in a dorsal hump if the cartilage and bone heal unevenly.
Nose Bump Removal With Dermal Fillers
When you choose nose bump removal with dermal fillers you make the decision to avoid the use of scalpels and anaesthetic, and you unequivocally eliminate worries about needing to cover bruising or scarring and a lengthy period of downtime. This is why more and more people are addressing their nasal concerns with a non-surgical option.
Another bonus point for nose-bump removal with fillers is that the procedure can take less than an hour from start to finish, you can have it done during your lunch hour and there is a minimal recovery time of just a few days.
Nose injection filler
At PHI, we only use the very best of products that are specifically engineered for each part of your face. Juvederm by Allergan produces leading-edge hyaluronic acid (HA) based fillers that are specially formulated to be introduced under the skin via injection.
Juvederm Volux is the newest product in the Vycross range, and is a thicker gel intended to create definition in the chin and jawline as well as the nose. They not only help to rejuvenate, restore volume, and iron out fine lines and wrinkles but also help to re-contour the features in a natural-looking way, producing astounding results.
We do not use permanent fillers at PHI, as we believe patients should make the decision about the permanency of their treatment. That is not to say that results will fade quickly; these superior products are clinically proven to last for up to 24 months post-treatment, though some anecdotal evidence suggests they may last even longer for some patients.
