K-Lyft Nose Threads
What is it?
Our K-Lyft nose threads procedure is designed for those looking to enhance the shape, height and definition of their nose profile instantly with minimal risk and almost zero downtime.
Depending on the original nose shape and height, the treatment will be customized to augment targeted areas such as the nose bridge or tip alone, or one may decide to reshape the entire nose altogether to achieve a more defined and sharper nose structure.
What can it achieve?
- Higher nose bridge
- Better tip projection
- Narrower looking nose
- Sharper nose profile
- More structured and projected nose
What do we use?
The nose threads are composed of safe, biocompatible and absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) material that are able to smoothly integrate into body’s own tissue structure. It has a proven safety record with its use over the years in the medical industry.
An additional benefit of using PDO threads is their ability to stimulate own collagen growth to occupy the space where the threads once sit in to further strengthen the nose profile over time, even after all the threads are fully absorbed by the body.
What is the difference between nose threads vs. nose fillers?
Nose thread procedure inserts PDO surgical suture material to augment overall contour and definition of the nose whereas nose filler procedure injects hyaluronic acid gels to volumize or subtly enhance height or shape of targeted areas to improve structure of the nose.
Different individuals have their own unique nose profiles to begin with and may be suitable for either nose threads, nose fillers or a combination of both.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long will the effect last?
The nose threads are gradually broken down and absorbed over a period of 6 months. The nose lift and enhanced structural effect lasts for about 9 to 12 months.
What is the treatment interval?
We recommend repeating treatment on a yearly basis to maintain the definition and at the same time stimulate further collagen regeneration to strengthen the overall nose structure.
How soon will I see the effect?
The results are visible immediately after the procedure. This may be accompanied by mild swelling so do allow 1-2 weeks for swelling to completely subside in order to accurately determine the final outcome.
What to expect during treatment?
We will inject local anaesthetic to numb the area adequately before threads insertion. This will feel rather stinging and uncomfortable but it is an important step to ensure maximal comfort throughout the rest of the procedure. The technique usually involves some gentle tugging underneath the skin as the threads are placed. The procedure itself takes about 30 minutes.
Overall, it is very tolerable and only 1-2 entry point needle marks will be visible at the end of treatment.
Is there any downtime?
Yes, there may be mild swelling and bruising over the treatment sites. You can reduce the swelling with ice pack compresses at home. If bruising happens, they often last for about 3-5 days on average. You can easily conceal the bruising spots with concealer makeup the next day.
How can I minimize the risk of bleeding or bruising?
Avoid consuming vitamin E supplement, omega-3 fish oil, NSAIDs painkillers or blood thinning medications for 3 days before the procedure, unless medically indicated by your doctor*.
*Please discuss with the doctor before you decide to stop regular medications on your own as they may be important for the underlying medical condition.
If you are someone who tends to swell, bleed or bruise easily, we strongly encourage you to start on our Recovery Boost Pack to speed up the healing process and reduce overall downtime.
Are the results permanent?
PDO threads are being broken down naturally by our body over time and the effect of each treatment usually lasts for 9-12 months. Reinsertion of threads is necessary to maintain optimal results until sufficient collagen growth replaces the empty space once filled by the PDO threads to give a more permanent defined nose structure.
What is the post-treatment care?
- Continue skincare as per usual routine
- Avoid vigorous massage or manipulation of the nose
- Avoid vigorous exercise (running, swimming, heavy weights training) for at least 2 to 3 days
- Avoid taking alcohol on the day of treatment
- Apply cold packs to areas of bruising or swelling, if any
- Apply makeup only on the next day
What is the estimated price per session?
Depending on the area(s) to be treated, the price of K-Lyft Nose Threads starts from $850.
