A HIKO nose lift is a non-surgical threadlift that provides an alternative to surgical procedures such as a rhinoplasty. Offering exceptional results, no downtime and no discomfort, HIKO Nose lifts are growing in popularity.
How Does a HIKO Nose Lift Work?
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are used under the skin to skilfully sculpt, contour and shape the bridge and tip of the nose. The threads act as a scaffolding for the collagen that they stimulate the production of. PDO is safely dissolved and absorbed by the body over time. The PDO threads typically dissolve over 6-12 months. However, people usually see longer sustained results because when the threads dissolve, the collagen remains. This means the effects from a nose threadlift usually last 1-2 years. The new collagen supports and maintains the new desired shape. A nose threadlift is largely used for straightening and defining the nose, increasing the height of your nose at the bridge and lifting the tip.
How is a HIKO Nose Lift Carried out?
The skin is first cleaned and an antiseptic solution is used to ensure the site is as clean as possible. Topical anaesthetic cream is first applied to the nose, followed by tiny local anaesthetic injections to make it numb and ready for the insertion of the threads. The nose threadlift involves bringing the thread through the soft tissue along the bridge of the nose, or for tip adjustment, it is inserted at the tip and thread down the nasal columella. The procedure takes roughly 20 minutes. There is minimal bruising and swelling. Makeup can be used the next day.
What are the benefits of a HIKO nose lift?
There are numerous benefits to a HIKO Nose lift Singapore, the main one being that it is non-surgical, eliminating the need for a general anaesthetic and an overnight stay in the hospital. Some other benefits to consider are:
- Safety: PDO threads are a researched and well-known form of thread that the body can safely absorb.
- Speed: A nose threadlift can be carried out over a lunch break. Taking approximately 20 minutes with no recovery time needed, it is incredibly convenient. Importantly the results are immediate.
- Secure: Nose threads are very stable and secure with no risk of migration or displacement even if pressure is applied to the nose.
- Long lasting: Although the thread itself usually last 6-12 months, the collagen that is stimulated last longer. Therefore, one treatment has the potential to last 1-2 years. Although this is not as permanent as traditional rhinoplasty, it is more lasting than dermal nose fillers.
What Types of Enhancements are Achieved with a HIKO Nose Lift?
A combination of desired results can be achieved in one nose threadlift session. Listed below are just a few:
- Higher nose bridge
- Straighter or more defined nose bridge
- Sharper and slimmer nose bridge
- Higher nose bridge
- Sharper or slimmer nose tip
