Given the procedure’s almost instant results and minimal invasiveness, nose thread lifts have become increasingly popular in Malaysia today. Nose thread lifts are less risky and time-consuming than surgical rhinoplasty. Thread lifts are usually used on the nasal tips and/or bridges.
PDO threads are the most commonly used material in nose thread lifts. These threads are constructed with barbed hooks to latch on skin tissues and provide instant lifting, instantly improving the appearance of the nose and bridge area. The effects of nose thread lifts could last up to two years, with several follow-up treatments in between to extend the result of the procedure.
Compared to rhinoplasty and nose fillers, nose thread lifts are deemed the best nose augmentation procedure. There is less risk of the threads migrating or spreading across the nose. Downtime is also minimal, lasting only 3 to 5 days at most, with minor bruising and/or swelling at the insertion site.
What Is Nose Thread Lift?
A nose thread lift procedure is a minimally invasive and non-surgical nose augmentation procedure that originated in Korea and has since gained popularity in Malaysia as a safer option than other nose enhancement procedures like nose fillers and rhinoplasty.
The nose thread lift treatment includes using biodegradable PDO threads that’ve been particularly modified to heighten and contour the nose’s bridge and sharpen the nose’s tip.
The threads utilized in nose thread lifts are comparable to those utilized in surgery. They’re made from bioabsorbable materials like polydioxanone (PDO), which is widely utilized in Malaysia for non-invasive cosmetic procedures. Over a six to nine-month period, the threads are gently and securely taken by your body, with benefits lasting even longer than expected.
How Does the Nose Thread Lift Procedure Work?
The threads inserted into your nose work as a scaffold, allowing you to have a higher, more prominent nasal bridge and a more projecting nose tip. These threads are made from Polydioxanone (PDO), which is completely biodegradable and absorbable by your body.
The results offered by the nose thread lift procedure can last for up to two years.
The bio-absorbable threads will encourage collagen formation as they slowly disintegrate, helping elevate the nasal bridge and entire nose contour. The nasal thread lift treatment would take between 15 to 30 minutes. It’s an ideal non-surgical and minimally invasive way to get a more defined nose shape without the risks and complications of surgery.
What Kind of Threads Are Used?
For this treatment, Polydioxanone or PDO threads are used. This is a safe material that is utilized in a variety of medical procedures, including cardiac surgery.
PDO is injected into the treatment areas and beneath the skin to promote collagen formation and to improve nose height and contour. Because the skin tissues develop new fibroblasts and collagen, you can see and feel a tightening effect on the inside and out.
There are two types of nose thread lifts.
Steigen Konko is a COG polydioxanone (PDO) thread. To stimulate skin tissues, tiny threads are injected into specific regions beneath the skin. As a result, new tissue collagen and fibroblasts are produced in the skin tissues, resulting in a tightening result from within. The scaffolding effect of the thread provides a higher nose bridge when the bridge of the nose is lifted. Luluko then straightens and modifies the curve of the nose, giving it an impressive and stylish appearance.
Ultra V® HIKO is also a non-invasive nose augmentation procedure. HIKO thread lift not just adds height to the nasal bridge but also gives the nose a more prominent tip and the less rounded nostrils. This procedure gives the nose a sharper, taller, and more beautiful appearance that is comparable to traditional rhinoplasty surgery.
Is Nose Thread Lift A Safe Treatment?
When compared to other nose augmentation procedures, a nose thread lift is believed to be the safest option. PDO threads are routinely used as operative stitches and have a 30-year safety record. There is no risk of problems such as blindness, vascular compression, or nasal bridge broadening.
When choosing this treatment, it’s crucial to consider the threads utilized and the doctor’s technique/skills. Because everyone’s noise profile is different, having a highly trained doctor makes a major difference in achieving the best outcomes.
Our doctors at Beverly Wilshire Clinic are highly qualified and experienced in nose enhancement procedures, with a lot of positive reviews under their belt. They have a strong grasp of the Asian nasal profile and how to enhance the structure and curves of a nose after years of successfully and satisfyingly performing nose augmentation procedures in Malaysia.
What Are The Results Of The Nose Thread Lift Procedure?
The results of a nose thread lift procedure can be seen immediately, and they will improve with time as the body regenerates more collagen over the next three to six months, up to a year.
The effects usually last for about one to two years. The results will be much longer-lasting if the procedure is repeated nine months following the initial treatment. Nonetheless, collagen stimulation in the nose will result in some long-term lifting.
Are There Side Effects?
You may experience some discomfort during the anesthetic injections, but the threads would not cause any pain afterward. You’ll notice some firmness in the treatment sites right after the threads are inserted, and you may feel some slight discomfort for a couple of days. Analgesics are available over the counter and can be used for post-operative pain relief.
The nose thread lift is a highly safe procedure with no long-term complications. Mild bruising, swelling, and tenderness are to be expected following the surgery, but they should subside within a few days to weeks
Who Would Benefit From A Nose Thread Lift?
Both men and women can benefit from a nose thread lift. This treatment, however, is not appropriate for people:
- When there is an active infection or inflammation on the skin
- With autoimmune illnesses
- Who have surgical rhinoplasty done on their nose
What is the average duration of a nose thread lift?
The body will absorb the PDO threads in around 6-9 months, but because of the collagen production stimulated by the nose thread lift procedure, you can expect to see the results last up to a year!
Is Nose Thread Lift Safe?
This is a highly sophisticated non-surgical procedure that should only be carried out by a trained medical practitioner. Our doctors here at Beverly Wilshire Clinic are trained and qualified, so you can rest assured that you will be in good hands.
Are There Any Side Effects?
The most common adverse effects are redness and a small amount of edema at the injection site, which normally goes away after a few days.
How Many Nose Thread Lift Sessions Are Needed?
There is only one session necessary. However, if you want the best outcomes, you should schedule a follow-up appointment a year later. Some permanent lifting could be noticed with continuous stimulation and the creation of collagen in the nose.
How Safe Are the Pdo Threads Inserted Into The Nose?
Polydioxanone (PDO) is a biodegradable polymer that is 100 percent biodegradable. Thanks to this technique, the threads will disintegrate gradually in the nose over the next couple of months.
How Long Does It Take To See Results From A Nose Thread Lift?
After the treatment, you’ll notice quick results. The PDO thread will provide the nose bridge with an immediate lift.
