In the case of patients who are not yet ready to commit to surgery, Dr. Torgerson likes to use injectable fillers to achieve comparable results. Although non-surgical treatments are not permanent, they do provide alternative semi-permanent results that can last several months. These enhancements can dramatically improve the quality of life for some people who experience insecurities directly related to the size and shape of their nose.
Teosyal Kiss is Dr. Torgerson’s preferred hyaluronic acid-based injectable filler for the nose. His partiality for this product stems from the chemical compounds that are present when using hyaluronic acid-based products. The Teosyal hyaluronic acid range offers products that are biocompatible, free from animal by-products and animal testing, and with results that are immediately visible.
Here are some frequently asked questions in regards to non-surgical rhinoplasty (nose job).
What It Is Inside The Filler Product That Is Injected In The Nose?
Non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid.
How Is It Made?
By bacterial fermentation from streptococci bacteria.
Is A Skin Test Required Before Treatment?
No. Hyaluronic acid is of 100% non-animal origin and is non-allergenic. No allergy test is required prior to injection.
Is It Temporary Or Permanent?
Temporary. Hyaluronic acid is completely metabolized within the skin over an average period of 9 to 12 months, so eventually the skin is free of the injectable product.
