LIFESTYLE@LXG: Joey gets a natural-looking, sharper nose with the Ultra V HIKO Noselift

Our nose is the most central & perceived as one of the most prominent features on our face. Unfortunately, most Asians like myself have a less protruding, wide & flat nose bridge, as compared to Caucasian noses. From young, I have always yearned for a sharp, slim & well defined nose so as to improve my overall appearance. 

In the past, there were limited options available for Noselift procedures. Rhinoplasty surgery is one of them. The results are long-lasting, but the procedure is very costly. It’s a surgical & invasive procedure which requires full sedation, and long downtime  - maybe taking months to a year to fully recover.

Another option is fillers, which is fuss free & non-invasive. However, it’s very common to have lumpiness after the injection of fillers & it may spread over time, leading to a broader nose.

I was extremely excited to learn that The Wellness Clinic has launched the Ultra V HIKO Noselift : a non-invasive procedure, which is able to elevate the nose bridge & tip, achieving a higher, sharper, slimmer, elegant & more defined nose contour!

The Ultra V HIKO Noselift is a non-surgical procedure, whereby Polydioxanone (PDO) 3-dimensionally designed threads are inserted underneath the skin to elevate the nose bridge, creating a more contoured & defined nose tip. The PDO threads will be absorbed by the body after some time. During this time, they are able to stimulate collagen formation which will lift & enhance the nose’s contour.
It’s very important to consult an experienced doctor to determine the number of threads required so as to attain the desired results. I had my appointment fixed with Dr Ram for my noselift procedure. With 17 years of experience in the aesthetics industry, I knew I was in good hands.

For a start, the clinic staff applied topical numbing cream onto my nose area. About 20 minutes later, Dr Ram injected local anaesthesia onto my nose area. This was the only slight painful moment throughout the whole procedure. The local anaesthesia instantly numbed my entire nose area, so the whole procedure was painless after that! I only felt some slight pressure during the insertion of the threads into my nose. Other than that, my overall experience was quite comfortable & tolerable. I was very impressed by the end of the procedure as my nose was instantly lifted, with a well-defined & contoured tip. Most important of all, it looked very natural, with absolutely no downtime!

“The Ultra V HIKO Noselift procedure is considered safer than the injection of nose fillers. Although the threads gradually dissolve over a period of about 12 months, the collagen that forms during that time helps to support the new shape of the nose for a much longer period. Hence, the effects of the treatment can last for up to one-and-a-half years, nearly twice as long as traditional nose fillers,” said Dr Ram Nath, Director, Aesthetic and Medical Services, The Wellness Clinic. Cost: from $650 per session.
