HIKO nose threads! An emerging trend in non-surgical nose augmentation is the use of fine absorbable threads to mechanically “lift” up the nose. Better known as HIKO nose thread lift and can eliminate complications of fillers in a dangerous zone.


What is HIKO nose lifting?

HIKO nose lifting is a minimally invasive procedure to enhance the appearance of the nose by using fine absorbable threads which stimulates your own collagen.

The threads are called Polydioxanone (PDO) and it allows the sharpening and straightening of the nose and the nose tip. The result is natural and long lasting.

How is the procedure done?

PDO threads are placed just above the bone in the deep tissues of the nose under local anaesthesia. The threads stimulates natural collagen production whilst it gradually dissolves over a period of 6-8 months. The new collagen build up maintains the new enhanced appearance for over 2 years.

The procedure is about 30mins and you are able to return to normal activities immediately. There may be minimal swelling and bruising which may last for several days.

Am I suitable for the treatment?

The procedure is suitable for anyone who does not want to go under the knife but wants to improve the appearance of their nose. This is also suitable for those with fillers injected previously but would like to sharpen and further enhance their nose.
