Nose Fillers in Singapore - what they are
What are Nose Fillers?
"I want a higher nose bridge"
"My nose is very flat"
For many Asians, a common complaint is flat or low nose bridges.
Aside from going under the knife, nose fillers and nose threadlift are one of the most popular treatments to achieve a higher, sharper and more defined nose without the risks of surgery - in only 15 minutes!
Nose fillers are a gel-like substance injected beneath the skin. Majority of fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally occuring substance in the body.
Fillers VS Surgery
Compared to surgery (rhinoplasty), getting a hyaluronic acid filler for your nose will give you more natural- looking results.
Aside from treating the nose bridge, dermal fillers can also be used to enhance the nose tip, giving the nose a slimmer, more sculpted appearance. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can also stimulate collagen production in the skin.
Furthermore, fillers for nose can be placed accurately to smoothen out "bumps" in the nose caused by the natural shape of the nasal bone.
Dermal Nose Fillers or Nose Thread lift Singapore or Both?
For flat noses, a dermal filler is recommended first as they are best in giving volume.
Compared to nose threads treatments, a hyaluronic acid nose filler treatment is better able to correct "bumps" in the nose because they can be injected specifically into an area, such as the nose tip or nose bridge. Getting a nose filler treatment is also less prone to result in any negative side effects.
Nose threads are more ideal for those who have an existing or low nose bridge, and desire additional height and definition. An added benefit of nose threads is that the entire nose bridge is enhanced, from the top all the way down to the tip.
Dermal fillers treatments and nose threads treatments can also be used in combination. Fillers can create the "foundation" to increase the height of the bridge first. Following which, nose threads are used to further define and contour the nose bridge and tip. Nose filler Singapore and nose thread lifts are both non-surgical nose procedures that can drastically improve your nose shape with results comparable to a surgical nose job.
After consultation, Dr Edwin will recommend the ideal treatment option for you.

Nose Filler in Singapore Treatment Experience
Prior to treatment, Dr Edwin will discuss with you the type and volume of filler required to achieve your desired results. We only use FDA approved brands such as Restylane or Juvederm.
The choice of fillers are crucial! Choosing the wrong type of filler may result in "broadening" of the nose bridge a.k.a the "avatar" nose.
Prior to each injection, a cold icepack will be applied to the skin to reduce discomfort and bruising. Dr Edwin prefers ice over numbing cream as ice has the added benefit of anti-bruising.
The filler is injected using a small and thin needle. Results can be seen immediately after the fillers treatment. There may be slight bruising and swelling. We recommend using the intensive recovery cream to hasten recovery.
Treatment duration is between 15 to 30 minutes. Results typically last between 12 to 16 months.
Are Nose Fillers Singapore safe?
Nose filler injections are a technically demanding procedure and should only be performed by an experienced doctor.
The safest approach is to inject deep, along the mid line of the nose, to avoid blood vessels. There have been reports of rare and severe complications such as skin necrosis and blindness when the filler is injected incorrectly into a blood vessel. Otherwise, side-effects are mild and not serious.
