The tissue of the skin and subcutaneous tissue is composed of factors including cells, collagen and elastin that is held within a matrix of hyaluronic acid. Pharmaceutical companies have manufactured hyaluronic acid that is injectable and stays in the tissues for months or years. These manufactured substances are known as dermal fillers and also include products made from calcium hydroxylapatite and poly-L-lactic acid.
I was attending a conference of expert aesthetic clinicians in London this week and had the opportunity to meet World Expert and Dermapen micro-needling proponent Dr Andrew Christie from Australia.
We had a fabulous discussion about the treatments we offer our patients and shared ideas to get even better outcomes from Vampire facials using the latest technology, the worlds leading equipment and combining this with our clinical expertise.
Who would you trust to do a Liquid Nose Job (AKA Non-surgical rhinoplasty) on you?
Is a non-surgical nose job safe?
We are bombarded these days with beauty-enhancing filler treatments, but are they safe? A non-surgical rhinoplasty or ‘liquid nose job’ is potentially one of the most risky treatments you can undergo so making sure the person doing it has the knowledge and skills to keep you safe is essential.

How do you make a nose smaller?
Keeping proportion in the face is essential when I am planning cosmetic treatments for my patients. A non-surgical nose-job can help with several nose deformity issues to make the nose appear straighter, smaller and remove any humps or bumps.
Bruising means ‘down time’ and if you have a hectic work and social life that can be a problem!
The client asked for her nose to be straighter and for the tip to be lifted.
I saw a patient this week with a very prominent nose. She had accepted that there was nothing she could do about her badly hooked nose as she did not want to have surgery with its complications, bruising, swelling and time off work.
