Nose re-contouring

Nose re-contouring treatment overview

A treatment growing in popularity here at Rejuvenate at North Street is helping people re-balance their nose profile with dermal fillers. The dermal fillers we use here at Rejuvenate are natural proteins called HA, which the skin itself is made up of. By topping up the HA content, you increase the feature’s volume and fullness. HA is an excellent choice as it helps to lock in moisture and keep the face looking youthful and dewy.

The procedure involves either a series of small injections or use of a special blunt ended cannula that allows us to sculpt the nose to the size, shape and form you always wanted. Here at rejuvenate, we pride ourselves in enhancing your natural face shape and form to give you a result that your friends and family recognise as you… just the best version of you.

The process of recapturing a more youthful you starts with a free consultation where we chat to discover what type of result you want to craft for yourself. The procedure itself takes anywhere from 15-45mins depending on how much filler is required. At Rejuvenate we use the Juvederm range (such as Volift) which has an anaesthetic built-in to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. Typically you will feel an initial pinch as the first injection helps make a face full and beautiful. Then as the anaesthetic gets to work, you gradually feel less and less.

Dr Joe explains nose re-contouring treatment

What is nose re-contouring?

Ever wished your nose wasn’t quite so hooked, looked more even or just wanted to try a reversible option before considering a surgical nose job? Then liquid rhinoplasty with nose fillers is the perfect option to give you the nose you have always wanted.

What are nose fillers?

At Rejuvenate we use nose fillers made from a naturally occurring protein found in the skin and lips called hyaluronic acid (HA). This is used to plump areas of the face to help improve the fullness, give extra definition or fill wrinkle lines.

How long does the effect of nose filler last?

Nose filler effects are temporary lasting between 6-18 months, with an average of 9 months for most patients.

How quickly do you see the effects of nose filler?

The effects of fillers are instantaneous. However, the look and feel will improve over 3 weeks. HA is hydrophilic and will absorb 1000 times its weight in water; this helps to hydrate the skin and give a more soft and natural feel to the area.

Does it hurt to have nose filler injections?

We use a combination of pre-anaesthetic, filler containing anaesthetic and a vibration distraction device. This results in the most comfortable and relaxing treatment possible.

How much nose filler can I have in one session?

At Rejuvenate at North Street, we want to sculpt beautiful features safely and predictably. Consequently, we recommend no more than 1ml in any one area at a time. This allows placement of filler in precisely the area intended.

How much does it cost for nose re-contouring treatment?

Nose treatment costs are depending on the volume filler used:

1ml from £295
2ml from £395
3ml from £495

Aftercare instructions

Immediately after treatment, there may be slight redness, swelling, tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a typical result of the injection. The inconvenience is temporary and generally disappears in a few days.

  • Apply an ice pack to the treated area. This will reduce any initial swelling.
  • Avoid touching the treated area for 6 hours following treatment.
  • Avoid washing the area with soap and water for 6 hours.
  • Until the initial swelling and redness have resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat (e.g. solarium and sunbathing) or extreme cold.
  • Avoid applying makeup to the area for 6 hours. After this, light makeup can be used, and the area can be gently washed with soap and water.
  • Avoid laser treatment, chemical peels or similar procedures as they may elicit an inflammatory reaction.
  • If you have previously suffered from cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another eruption of cold sores.
  • If you are taking aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, or any similar medication, these may increase the bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
  • For any concerns at all, please contact the practice. We are on North Street, Dudley, West Midlands. Full details on our contact page.
