3-Step Nose ThreadLift

The nose plays a vital role in providing balance and overall harmony to our facial features. Being the center of focus on the face, the nose profile and dimensions define our image.


Illumia’s Face Design Technique

There are a number of non-surgical techniques to redefine the nose. At illumia, we start with our signature Face Design Technique that takes individual facial anatomy into consideration to make ideal recommendations.

Depending on your aesthetic goals, we use premium medical-grade threads or fillers (or both) to create a more customised nose enhancement that suits your facial profile.

Structurally, we divide the nose profile into 3 connected areas:

1. Nose Bridge
  • Refers to the shorter length of the nose, from the end of the ridge to slightly below the eyebrows. The nose bridge is where your glasses or sunglasses would normally rest on.
  • This region can be raised non-surgically using special short nose threads to give a higher bridge.
  • Threadlifts hold advantages over fillers in this region as it does not spread over time and result in a flat looking nose.
  • This procedure can also help straighten slightly crooked noses or nose humps.
2. Nose Ridge
  • Refers to the long ridge of the nose, from the tip to slightly below the eyes.
  • This region can be raised non-surgically using special nose threads to give a higher ridge.
  • This procedure can also help straighten slightly crooked noses or nose humps.
  • Results are a natural looking 3-dimensional looking nose profile that appears slimmer.
3. Nose Tip
  • Also known as the columellar region, the popular look for the nose tip to have it button-shaped and have a slightly upturned projection.
  • To create this, the doctor may suggest a combination of nose threadlift technique with nose fillers.

How long does it last?

Illumia uses nose threads that provide significant structural support to the nose. It is able to last for a period of 1-2 years or longer. Touch-ups can be scheduled anytime as and when needed.

How is the procedure done?

The doctor will plan your nose design and discuss the treatment with you. Some numbing and local anaesthesia will be given to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure. The threads or fillers are then inserted and completed in a short time.


How many threads do I need?

The number of threads used will vary by the individual. On average 6 to 12 threads may be used.

Is there downtime?

There is minimal to no-downtime for this procedure, aside from mild swelling, bruising and soreness. You can return to your daily activities immediately after although certain activities should be avoided. The doctor will discuss this with you during the consultation.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure is completed in 15 to 30 mins.
