The 8 Point Facelift treatment was created by the world-renowned Brazilian plastic surgeon, Dr. Mauricio de Maio. By restoring lost volume to your face in 8 key areas, you can achieve a lift to your face, tightening sagging skin and reducing wrinkles without having to go under the knife!
With ageing, the face loses volume which creates sagging, folds, lines and wrinkles, usually not just confined to one particular area of your face, but to several (such as the jowls, bags under the eyes, cheeks, corners of the mouth, etc.). Not only does this leave you looking older, but it can also make you look sad, tired or grumpy all the time.
The 8 Point Lift is an advanced dermal filler technique that targets 8 key facial areas in order to restore volume, enhance and contour your natural features, and lift, smooth and tighten your face — while aiming to minimising the amount of filler required to be injected (making it more cost effective). This also helps to minimise the "puffy face" effect sometimes seen in celebrities who have had too much facial filler!
The 8 Point Lift aims to provide a more complete facial rejuvenation experience than treatments which only focus on one or two areas of your face. By targeting multiple key areas, the 8 Point Lift helps to maximise the face lifting, supportive, and contouring effects that dermal fillers offer.
Cheekbones can appear more defined, dark circles under the eyes reduced, folds that run from the nose to mouth flattened, and downturned corners of mouth restored back to their natural smiley position.
Facial asymmetry can also be corrected using this technique, restoring a balanced and attractive symmetry to your face.
Areas that the 8 Point Lift treatment targets include:
Not all 8 points need injecting on everyone. During your consultation with Doctor Alex, a bespoke treatment tailored to your unique facial features will be devised, in order to achieve the best possible results.
The 8 Point Lift can be combined with Botox, which helps to reduce muscle contraction and therefore wrinkles.
Rejuvenation results from the non-surgical 8 Point Lift are seen instantly! There may be a slightly "fuller" appearance immediately after injection of the filler due to natural swelling, which resolves after a few days.
Filler to lift the entire face region can last 12 to 18 months. The dermal filler Doctor Alex uses (Juvederm) is a non-permanent treatment, and can also be reversed/dissolved if needed.
No. You may feel a pinprick sensation as the skin around various specially chosen points on your face is injected. Doctor Alex can apply special numbing cream beforehand if you are worried about this. An advanced micro-cannula technique can also be used to help minimise any discomfort.
More or less immediate recovery — it can be performed in your lunch break! As a needle is used to inject dermal filler into several points on your face, there is a chance you may get a small amount of bleeding/bruising, which usually resolves after a few days. Doctor Alex can also use special micro-cannulas to inject the filler, which can also reduce the risk of bruising.
Prices start from £725 (special offer, reduced from £995). Every treatment and 8 point lift is tailored towards your unique face, therefore exact pricing will be discussed at the consultation after a full assessment. Please see the price list for full list of treatments.
