How long does the bruise on the nose bridge from PDO nose thread lifts usually last?

Hi, any bruise takes about two weeks to disappear. Sometimes the pigment from the broken red blood cells (hemosiderin), can take longer for the immune system to clear it away.

Do nose thread lifts help with opening up the medial epicanthic fold?

A nose bridge threadlift will offer a mild improvement if you have prominent medial epicanthic folds. This is because the threads inserted adds volume to the nose bridge area and stretches the skin, resulting in a medial pull of the medial epicanthic folds. That being said, the effect is temporary, as are nose threads, lasting for 1-2 years, and is normally quite limited. Unless your nose bridge is your primary aesthetic concern, it might be in your interest to consider a medial epicanthoplasty. Hope this helps!
