The contours of the nose significantly affect our overall appearance. If the edges of the nose are too sharp or if the creasing and folding is quite visible, it’s certainly going to be noticed by others. One solution is the injection of carefully chosen dermal fillers during a procedure known as the 5 minute nose job. These injections are simple to perform, and the results can last for quite a long time. There are different types of dermal fillers available for improving the shape of the nose and for reducing the appearance of certain issues. Think of this as a quick and convenient nose job, performed as an outpatient treatment but without the need for surgery.
How Dermal Fillers Work
Most of the filler injections at our office contain hyaluronic acid. This is a type of molecule that draws in and holds moisture. It’s produced naturally in the body, but most mature adults don’t have much of it in their system. When concentrated into a gel form and skillfully injected into the skin, the area becomes slightly plumped.
During a consultation, our specialist will evaluate the client’s situation and determine which brand to use and how much to inject. During the actual 5 minute nose job, the practitioner injects the gel at strategic points so that it slightly changes the contours of the skin surface.
Correcting Problems with the Shape of the Nose
Most of our clients come to us with concerns about shadows around the perimeter of the nose and deep creases between the nose and the cheeks. Both of these problems can be corrected through the use of dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are usually the best bet for smoothing out the folds that occur on both sides of the nose and altering the contours of the nose.
The Injection Procedure
This is performed as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our office. During the 5 minute nose job, the gel settles in beneath the skin and begins to attract moisture immediately. The client can resume most normal activities relatively quickly. As such, this is an extremely convenient procedure for people with busy schedules and lifestyles. This cannot be said of rhinoplasty.
