A non-surgical nose job typically has less downtime compared to a surgical rhinoplasty, though individual experiences may vary. A nose job using Volume Enhancement Treatments is essentially a walk-in, walk-out procedure with only minor tenderness and in some cases, slight bruising.

However, aftercare is still important to ensure your safety, to gain the desired results from your cosmetic surgery and make your Volume Enhancement Treatments last as long as possible.

If you’re considering a non-surgical nose job at our Adelaide Cosmos Aesthetics, here is what you should be prepared to do after the cosmetic procedure.

With the first-hour post Volume Enhancement Treatment treatment

Following an injectable nose job, common side effects such as swelling, redness, and bruising may occur. The duration of these effects can vary from person to person.

The post-Volume Enhancement Treatment effects shouldn’t prevent you from resuming your normal activities. Should the symptoms persist more than 3 days, we recommend you contact the team at Cosmos Aesthetics Adelaide.

The use of an ice pack and arnica cream or tablets may help to minimise bruising and if necessary, over-the-counter pain medication may be taken. Please speak to your injector about the best option for you during your consult.

Within the first 10 hours post Volume Enhancement Treatment treatment

While it may be tempting to feel your new, smooth nasal bridge or tip, we recommend you avoid touching the treated area with the first 10 hours of the cosmetic procedure. It is also advised to avoid too much movement of the area such as scrunching up the nose or applying too much pressure with tight-fitting eyewear.

This is because the Volume Enhancement Treatments are still relatively malleable and pressure can cause indentations affecting the overall results of your nose reshaping.

Discuss with your injector what topical products and supplements to avoid in the days after your treatment. Some anti-aging and anti-wrinkle products are best avoided. Likewise, it’s advised you stop taking supplements such as St. Johns Wort for the week after your treatment.

Post-treatment, gentle washing of the treated area and application of light make-up or sunscreen may be possible, depending on individual circumstances and advice from your practitioner.

To reduce the risk of additional bruising, avoid drinking alcohol or overly strenuous exercises. It is also recommended you avoid situations where there is intense heat such as saunas, sunbathing or hot tubs until the swelling, redness and bruising has resolved.

It is important to be aware if you’re taking aspirin or similar blood-thinning medications these may increase the bruising and delay your recovery time. This will be discussed with your injector at the time of your non-surgical nose job.
