Non-surgical rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as the non-surgical or 15 minute nose job, can improve the appearance of the nose, correcting dents, troughs and humps with the injection of tiny amounts of dermal filler.
The treatment works best for those with mild or moderate imperfections and can be an excellent alternative to surgery, avoiding all the associated risks, substantial costs and significant down time involved in a rhinoplasty operation.
As a highly skilled and experienced and advanced practitioner Laurie regularly performs non surgical rhinoplasty’s. She carefully considers the proportions of the face when performing this procedure. She has fully mastered the finesse of achieving natural looking results that can help to define and straighten the look of the nose, restoring balance and harmony to the face. She uses the more advanced cannula technique to minimise risks, downtime and bruising and for achieving excellent natural results.
The beauty of this treatment is that it can literally be performed in fifteen minutes and is an excellent “lunch time treatment”. No bandages required and there is minimal down time, occasionally slight swelling or bruising that can easily be covered with make-up. Clients can return to work straight after the procedure. The results are immediate and can last up to a year.

Before & After
Nose Reshaping (Non-surgical Rhinoplasty) FAQ
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft tissue fillers that are injected into the skin to soften lines and wrinkles. They can also be used to replace lost facial volume, define features and create a fuller lip. The majority of fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body that binds water and gives skin volume.
Are fillers safe?
Yes, dermal fillers have been used for many years, resulting in millions of successful treatments. Providing carried out by an experienced, qualified and highly trained in facial anatomy medical professional. We predominantly use Juvérderm ® and Restylane® which are both FDA approved.
Who is not a candidate for fillers?
It is advised that anyone with a previous allergic reaction to dermal fillers should avoid this treatment. Dermal fillers should also not be used in areas that have recently suffered from inflammation, trauma other skin related problems. Pregnancy and breast feeding is a total contra indication for all cosmetic treatments.
What should I consider prior to treatment?
We advise you to avoid blood thinners (alcohol, aspirin, Vitamin E) for 2 days prior to your treatment as thin blood increases the risk of bruising at the injection site. Taking Arnica tablets before treatment will also reduce the risk of bruising.
Will dermal filler injections hurt?
Dermal fillers can be slightly uncomfortable, depending on the depth of the injection required. However, the majority of dermal fillers contain a local anaesthetic which minimises discomfort. We can also use numbing creams.
When will I see results?
You will see the results immediately with further improvement in the vitality of the skin developing over 1-4 weeks.
What are the side effects?
There may occasionally be slight swelling, redness, bruising or bleeding at the injection site, however the use of a cannula can greatly reduce the chance of bruising. Any side effects are usually temporary and disappear within a few days. Due to the sensitivity of the lips however, recovery time is usually 24-48 hours with swelling, bruising and tenderness lasting up to a week.
What after care do you recommend?
The vast majority of clients will not experience any symptoms following treatment. However, in the instances of bruising, swelling or redness we recommend the application of a cold compress.
Arnica cream can also reduce bruising. Generally we recommend that you let the area settle immediately after the procedure and avoid touching it. Additionally we advise that you don’t have facial treatments for the next 24-48 hours and avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol, heat or excessive exposure during the following 6-10 hours directly after treatment.
How long do dermal fillers last?
One of the advantages of dermal filler is that although the effects are long lasting, they are not permanent. The effects generally last between 6-12 months, but are dependent on a range of factors such as the area treated, the skin type and condition and also the metabolism of the client.
Can dermal fillers be removed?
Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm may be rapidly dissolved with the enzyme hyaluronidase. However it is rare for a client to request this following treatment by a reputable practitioner.
