According to their web site   "NoseSecret is the only proven non-surgical nose job option with instant results that you can do on your own without the cost or hassle of nose surgery.

The product consists of a pair of curved and comfortable splints that you place at the inside edge of each nostril to make your nose look narrower and straighter, instantly"

There are no scientific studies that I am aware of that describe the long term effect of temporary internal nasal splinting on tip position. It is logical to assume that if the pressure is too great it will result in intranasal ulceration. Also, if the pressure by the splint on the tip results in skin expansion, once the splint is removed there would probably be some sagging of the tip with a narrower angle between the nose profile and the profile of the lip (the columellar labial angle). This change is seen with aging but prolonged use of these splints may increase the rate with which this happens.
