Nose Lift – Dermal Fillers vs. PDO Threads: Which is better?

Nose thread lift

Your nose is one of your distinct facial features. Regardless of its shape or width, it contributes to what makes you unique. While some love their nose, some may see theirs as a cause of insecurity.  Thanks to advancements in technology, there are now non-surgical ways to augment your nose: through dermal fillers or PDO threads. Sounds pretty cool, right? Read on for more information about non-surgical nose lifts!

Nose Lift using Dermal Fillers

This process is done by injecting a gel-like substance, specifically, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) into the tip and bridge of your nose to add shape and structure. If you want to know more about the benefits of dermal fillers, you may click here!

PDO/Nose Thread Lift

A nose thread lift consists of inserting polydioxanone (PDO) threads into the nasal bridge. These absorbable threads stimulate collagen formation when placed under the skin. The number of threads to be used varies per patient and is sometimes estimated during the consultation.

How long will my nose lift last?

If you opt for getting a nose lift by using dermal fillers, the results can last up to 12 months. A nose thread lift, on the other hand, has longer results that can remain for 1 to 2 years. If the procedure is repeated in 9 months, the effect will last longer and in some cases, they stay permanently. This is because PDO threads also stimulate collagen formation.


If you’re thinking about how long the recovery process is going to take, you don’t have to worry. Both non-surgical nose lift options require minimal downtime. As for its effects, PDO threads last longer than dermal fillers. The treating Dr will decide which of these two can be used during the consult. It all depends on the shape of the nose and how flat the nose bridge is. The nose filler gives professionals the ability to shape your nose exactly how you want it to look like while the nose thread lift procedure caters to those who want a slimmer nose bridge, reduced width of the nose and visible nose contour. The combination of both dermal fillers and nose PDO threads often gives you the best results.

Choose the right doctor

Every doctor is different and uses various techniques. Choosing the right one for you is important! Do your research and find out about the number of cases they have done, the number of threads they could use, aftercare, any complications that might happen and any other questions you have in mind.

In conclusion,

If you don’t want to undergo surgery, both nose filler and nose thread lift are great options for you. If you have a “bumpy” nose and want a straighter nose, proceeding with nose filler can be the way to go. If a sharper nose tip or a contoured nose sounds more desirable, you can opt for a nose thread lift. Although both choices can successfully alter your nose, you may also go for a combination treatment in order to achieve the best possible nose for you.  For Asians, an elevated nose bridge is highly desirable. Dr Targett says, “The combination of thread lift and dermal fillers works well to elevate the nasal bridge in these patients”.
