Non-surgical nose thread lift

Cambridge’s HIKO Nose Thread Lift is a popular non-surgical way of enhancing the shape of the nose and improving its contours, without any surgery.

It is able to raise the nose bridge & nose tips, making it higher, straighter and more defined without invasive nose implant surgery. It also avoids concerns over the use of fillers migrating or causing lumps. After doing the HIKO Thread Lift the nose appears slimmer and more elegant.

It is especially suited to straighten the nose, give a contoured definition and also works as a crooked nose treatment.

Compared to traditional rhinoplasty, which involves surgery and incisions, this procedure is non-surgical, minimally invasive with low downtime.

HIKO Nose Thread Lift Technique V.S. Original Korean Ultra

HIKO Nose Thread Lift is very popular in Korea and Japan where it is commonly known as the “lunch-time” nose lift.

What is a Nose Thread Lift?

The threads used are called PDO (polydioxanone) and they are completely absorbed over time. As they dissolve, these ultra-fine threads create new tissue fibroblasts and collagen, giving a tightening effect and further enhancing the nose contour.

  • Straighter contoured definition
  • Higher nose bridge
  • Lifting the nose tip
  • Sharper nose tip
  • Slimmer, more elegant nose

How long does a nose threadlift last?

Results last up to 2 years. Nose thread lifts are safe and can be repeated if one desires more definition.

HIKO Nose Thread Lift V.S. Filler

Lasts up to 2 yearsLasts < 1 year
Does not migrateMigrates or spreads
(May broaden the nose)
Stimulates natural collagen production-
-May cause lumpiness

Nose augmentation using fillers is a quick procedure that lasts about 9 months to 1 year. The concern with fillers is that it tends to migrate or spread over time, which could lead to a broader looking nose. Fillers are also known to occasionally cause lumpiness which is undesirable.

Nose augmentation using Hiko Thread Lifts, on the other hand, lasts up to 2 years, making it longer-lasting as compared to fillers. Unlike fillers, thread lifts do not migrate or spread over time. As the nose threads dissolve, it has the added advantage of stimulating collagen production so that the nose still looks naturally defined.

HIKO Nose Thread Lift V.S. Rhinoplasty Surgery

Procedure takes 20minsSurgery takes 2 hours

Rhinoplasty surgery is an alternative way of shaping the nose. While the results of a rhinoplasty are very long-lasting, it is a surgical and invasive procedure that requires full sedation. It typically involves a long recovery time of 3 months to 1 year. In addition, the high cost of a rhinoplasty makes it quite unattractive.

HIKO Nose Thread Lift, however, is non-surgical and minimally invasive. The procedure takes just 20 minutes and requires only topical numbing cream. There is virtually no downtime. On rare occasions where there is slight redness, it will go away in 1 day.

Will HIKO Nose Thread Lift deliver sufficient results?

With an experienced doctor such as Dr Lee Mun Heng, the Hiko Nose Thread Lift is an excellent way to contour the nose. The insertion of threads itself is safe and pain-free. In the following, we detail the factors and quality of nose thread required for a successful nose thread lift procedure.

  • The quality and type of nose threads used. Short, thin threads generally yield inferior results. Overly thick threads, on the other hand, may leave a scar at the injection point. Cambridge uses Ultra V PDO threads from Korea that are perfectly suited for HIKO Nose Thread Lifts.
  • The right technique of placement of the threads
  • Number of threads used

Are thread lifts better than fillers?

A combination of both a thread lift and fillers could provide a more pronounced effect and lasts longer.

Depending on the individual, about 6 to 12 threads will be required for a nose thread lift.

How do you sleep after a nose thread lift?

Try sleeping in a way that avoids pressure on the nose for about a week after your procedure. Ideally, you should sleep on your back with your head propped on a pillow to minimise swelling.
