What is nose thread?

Updated: May 14, 2022

Let's be honest. Who does not want a perfect nose shape and height?

Sutures and threads have been used extensively in the medical field for more than a century. However the use of threads in the nose for augmentation and beautification has a shorter history. The trend started in Korea after doctors there noticed threads on the face not only provide more collagen, they also provide some volumetric effect.

Currently there are 2 types of threads material used in non surgical nose augmentation or definition. They are PDO and PLA. PLA is currently the latest threads used in nose augmentation. Historically, PLA threads last longer that PDO threads. Hence we can expect nose thread lifting done with PCL threads to last longer than PDO threads.
