Nose filler is a popular cosmetic procedure that can help improve the shape and size of your nose without surgery. If you’re considering getting a nose job, it’s important to know the pros and cons of this type of procedure so you can make an informed decision. Let’s take a look at the facts about nose fillers so you can decide if this is the right option for you.
Is filler good for nose?
The benefit of getting nose filler is that it’s non-invasive. There is no cutting, no anaesthesia, and no downtime required. This makes it much easier than traditional rhinoplasty surgery. Additionally, nose filler tends to be much less expensive than surgery and they require very little recovery time. The most common type of nose filler is made from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body that helps keep skin hydrated and plump.
With dermal fillers, there is always an option to reverse or dissolve them if you don't like the results. It's also possible to add more filler after a few months if desired. In most cases, fillers are safe when done by a qualified professional and have minimal side effects.
How long do nose fillers last?
Thick fillers we use to reshape the nose give immediate results and last longer than other areas. Nose filler can last as long as 18 months with the right type of dermal filler. However, this depends on several factors such as lifestyle choices (e.g., smoking) and skin care (e.g., using sun protection). In general, however, most people find that their results last longer than expected!
It's important to you chose an experienced doctor to carry out this procedure. Our doctors at Dr.Derme can discuss all available options with you. Ultimately, only you can decide whether or not a nose filler is worth it for you!

Frequently asked questions
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to add volume to the lips. The most common type of filler is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the human body that helps keep skin hydrated and plump. When HA is injected it adds volume and definition to give them a youthful look.
How painful are dermal fillers?
The pain level will vary depending on the type of dermal filler being used and the area being treated, but dermal fillers generally cause some minor discomfort. Most patients describe dermal fillers as just uncomfortable, with a burning or biting sensation when the filler is injected into the tissue. Fortunately, we offer numbing creams or local anesthetics, which can help minimize any discomfort experienced during dermal fillers.
Are there any risks involved?
Like any medical procedure, there are some risks associated with dermal filler injections—namely bruising, swelling, redness and pain at the injection site. However, these side effects should subside within a few days after treatment. Lastly, it's essential that you find a reputable cosmetic doctor who has experience administering dermal fillers so that you get optimal results with minimal risk involved. Dr Thuva Amuthan trains many healthcare professional across the country in his expert techniques.
What to avoid after dermal fillers?
After dermal fillers treatment, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your doctor. Generally, it is best to AVOID:
- Touching the area or applying any make up for at least 3 hours
- Hot drinks or enviroments such as baths, steam or sauna for at least a day
- Drinking alcohol or strenuous exercise for the first day
- direct sun exposure for the following week
- Additionally, it is advised not to massage or apply pressure to the injection site in order to give the filler enough time to settle and achieve desired effects.
How can you make the reults last?
Dermal fillers are a great way to look energetic and refreshed, but many people want to make their dermal fillers last as long as possible. One of the best things you can do to extend the life of dermal fillers is to take preventative measures, such as:
- staying hydrated
- wearing sunscreen
- avoiding cigarettes and excessive alcohol.
You should also visit your doctor for regular follow-up appointments. This will help them monitor the dermal filler’s progress and provide assistance if there are any issues. Additionally, it is important to set realistic expectations about results and timelines as it does take time for dermal fillers to fully set in. Taking all these steps will enable dermal fillers to last longer than originally anticipated.
