Liquid nose job guide
Smoothen & Refine
So you are doing it! Congratulations. This is a guide for first time liquid nose filler clients on how things work and what to expect.
First and foremost, everyone is different, different aesthetic goals, different nasal structure, different metabolism, different genetics, different risk factors, etc. Do NOT compare yourself to someone else, you are your own nose, your own architecture, your own irregularities. It's what makes us different.
How long does it take?
- 10 minutes of topical numbing
- 5-10 minutes of procedure
Is it painful?
- Most clients have minimal pain, on a scale of 1-10, they are a 2-3.
How swollen will I be?
- Again, everyone is different, most people do not swell much for nasal injections. Most swelling resolves in a few days but can last up to 2 weeks.
What about bruises?
- Some people are pre-disposed to bruise, avoiding vitamins, alcohol, and ibuprofen type products can decrease the chances of a bruise. Bruising comes in three sizes: Small (like the tip of a needle), medium (like the back of pencil or two pencils), and large (gumball sized). Depending on the type of bruise they can last 2-3 days or up to 2 weeks respectively. Arnika pills ($25) can be purchased during your visit that can help heal bruises. From time to time a laser can be used to speed up the process if warranted.
What Product do you inject?
- I recommend Juvederm Voluma over other available products.
How long does it last?
- Typically nasal injections last 12 - 18 months depending on multiple factors including product used.
It looks un-even....
- This is rather common! Not to worry, usually swelling accounts for the majority of this, swelling can be worse on one side than the other, let all the swelling come down (7-14 days in most cases) and then re-evaluate the symmetry, 98% of the time this self resolves.
When can I go back to normal activities?
- After about 24hrs you can resume normal activities
Can I fly after the procedure?
- Yes, but keep in mind that flying makes you dehydrated so try to avoid salty foods and drink tons of water.
When Can I work out?
- You can return to normal activities the next morning. Please avoid wearing glasses for 2 days after the procedure and take caution not to injure yourself
