    If you’re considering reshaping your nose tip with dermal filler, you may have heard about the Tinkerbell nose tip, a popular cosmetic treatment that uses injections of dermal filler to give the nose tip a defined, projected appearance. We’re here to fill you in on the benefits of the Tinkerbell nose tip procedure, including the benefits, and what you can expected during and after the treatment.

    Why is a Tinkerbell nose tip lift with dermal filler?

    A Tinkerbell nose tip lift is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses dermal filler injections to give the tip of the nose a projected, up-turned appearance. It is a versatile treatment option that doesn’t require surgery. Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, the dermal filler used to reshape your nose tip into the Tinkerbell shape can be immediately dissolved in the unlikely event that the result just isn’t for you. This makes it an idea option for people who want a more lifted, up-turned nose tip, but who want to avoid the cost, risk and downtime of nose tip surgery.

    What to expect during the Tinkerbell nose tip procedure?

    The Tinkerbell nose tip procedure is performed in clinic, and takes less than 20 minutes to complete. During the treatment, dermal filler is precisely placed into the tip of the nose with tiny needles. The dermal filler adds projection to the nose and allows it to be reshaped. The filler used to reshape the nose is temporary and reversible, and is made of a compound based on a naturally occurring molecule known as hyaluronic acid that is already present in our skin.

    After your Tinkerbell nose tip lift, you may experienced some redness and swelling in the area, but this will quickly resolve in the first few days. You can look forward to enjoying an immediate result, with an improvement in the shape and projection of your nose tip.

    How long does a Tinkerbell nose tip lift with dermal filler last?

    The result of the Tinkerbell nose tip lift with dermal filler will wear off gradually over time, with most people having a maintenance treatment every 1-2 years on average. The longevity will depend on the type of dermal filler used, as well as your skin type and metabolism. Over time, the body naturally breaks down the injected dermal filler, with the result wearing off progressively.

    Is the Tinkerbell nose tip lift with dermal filler safe?

    As with all medical procedures, the Tinkerbell nose tip lift with dermal filler does have risks. Ensuring that your treatment is performed by an appropriately trained and experienced cosmetic doctor is a way to ensuring that your treatment is conducted safely. Some side effects from a Tinkerbell nose tip treatment are prolonged redness and swelling and tenderness. Rare risks include nose tip widening and skin injury if too much filler is injected. These risks are more likely to occur when the treatment is performed by an under-qualified or inexperienced injector.
