No, that's not how they work.
They are thin springy plastic, dogbone shaped strips, and one is used
at a time and it sticks to the outside of your nose.
Look at http://www.breatheright.com/ and you can see a picture of

the noses of the sleeping people, especiallly the guy. Totally
outside the nose.
The whole secret is the glue.
