Nose fillers and pain

Since the doctor will be using a needle to inject the fillers into the skin, you may experience a bit of discomfort and pain. However, according to your pain tolerance, the doctor may apply a numbing cream to the area.

That said, the treatment will take utmost 30 minutes, many patients can tolerate the pain or the discomfort.

Patients will also experience a bit of swelling or bruising but this will often go away in a day.

How long are the results?

Many patients often wonder how long the results will last after treatment. It is important to note that the results are not permanent. This is because the fillers are made from ingredients that will break down and disintegrate under the skin after a few months.

Consequently, the patient will need to go back for a touch-up treatment to maintain the results for longer.

Earlier nose fillers

These earlier or older nose fillers did not feature hyaluronic acid. Instead, they contain compounds such as polycaprolactone, hydroxyapatite and Poly L-lactic acid.

With these types of nose fillers, you will need to wait a month or so to see visible results. This is because they work by stimulating collagen production which may require a while to alter and improve the appearance of the nose.

Hyaluronic nose fillers

This is the most popular type of nose filler made from glycosaminoglycan polysaccharide which is a naturally occurring compound found in the skin. Considering that it has low antigenicity, the body and skin don’t experience any reactions.

These filers can provide results for 9-12months after which the patient will need to go back for another treatment.

Semi-permanent fillers

Compared to the other types of fillers, semi-permanent fillers last the longest. They are mainly made from liquid silicon or polyacrylamide.

While this may sound like a great thing, note that more long-lasting solutions and fillers may end up causing complications in the future.

What happens to the nose after the effects of the fillers wear out?

Patients can expect their noses to go back to the original shape and form when the effects of the nose fillers wear out.

Something else to keep in mind is that your appearances may look even less appealing than when you first when in for your first treatment. This is because you are also growing older.
