What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are made from a clear gel composed of a substance that is naturally found in skin, called hyaluronic acid. The main differences between the types of fillers are the thickness, viscosity, and longevity. Dermal filler injections can restore the skin’s natural support structures that have been damaged by aging and can provide an instant, noticeable and long-lasting result.

How long does the procedure take?
After careful analysis of the area with a nurse injector, the injections to the area may take 15-30 minutes depending on the amount of dermal filler required. The procedure can easily fit into your lunchbreak.
Will I have any downtime after the procedure?
Usually there will be some tenderness and swelling to the area for a few hours after the procedure. Some tape may be applied to the nose, but may be removed the next day. Compared to a surgical rhinoplasty, there is almost no downtime.
How long will the results last?
The results of dermal filler injections are not permanent, and subsequent treatments may be required. Individual results will vary greatly. If the client is to have a full 1mL of dermal filler injected to the nose area, then results may last 6-12 months. Subsequent treatments can have a longer lasting effect than the first treatment.
What is aftercare for non-surgical rhinoplasty?
After the procedure you should not touch the area or apply makeup to avoid contamination and infection. It is advisable not to drink alcohol the night of the procedure or to wear sunglasses or reading spectacles for a week after the procedure. It is also recommended to avoid strenuous exercise for 24hrs after the procedure.
