Nose shapers are a current trend on the market, which can be a device like a clip placed on the bridge of the nose that claims to create the appearance of a slimmer and straightened nose. However the question remains, do nose shapers actually work? Nose shapers have been sold as an alternative to going under the knife, whilst failing to explore alternative non-surgical options for nose augmentation.
Whilst surgery provides permanent results, downtime can last up to 6 months with side effects consisting of bruising and soreness around the eyes, and a wait of around 12 months before final results can be fully appreciated.
Do Nose Shapers Actually Work?
Minimal evidence suggests the reliability and credibility of nose shapers to create the appearance of a slimmer and straightened nose. Whilst shapers can be viewed as a short term investment for a quick fix to shape the nose, shapers can cause injury to the nose. These devices are unable to permanently change the structure of the nose, with any apparent differences that may occur being temporary. DIY nose reshaping products can interfere with natural development, particularly for teens, which can lead to permanent bruising.
In order to get longer lasting and effective results best suited to you, rhinoplasty offers permanent results. However if going under the knife is not an option for you, non-surgical nose jobs through dermal fillers can temporarily shape and define the nose that can last up to 2 years with anecdotal evidence suggesting results lasting longer.
Can You Straighten Your Nose Without Surgery?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty through dermal fillers has been clinically proven to last up to 2 years, though anecdotal evidence suggests some people may experience results lasting longer. Dermal fillers can be used as a precursor for those seeking a surgical nose job, as fillers can shape and define the nose.
Unlike surgery, treatment can last between 15-30 minutes depending on each individual case, with little to no downtime required. Some patients may experience signs of mild swelling and redness after treatment which is normal.
Juvederm Dermal Fillers
Juvederm fillers consist of high levels of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring sugar which attracts and retains water, instantly improving the appearance of the nose. Juvederm Volux is commonly used for noses as a sturdy product formulated for creating volume and structure depending on your desired outcome.
At PHI Clinic London, Juvederm is expertly practiced by all of our injectable clinicians, taught by Dr Tapan who is one of 6 Global Key Opinion Leaders for Juvederm’s parent company, Allergan.
