The 8-point facelift, also known as the non-surgical facelift or liquid facelift involves an analysis of volume deficit and the injection of dermal fillers to 8 pre-determined facial areas. This innovative facial treatment approach reduces the sagging of the midface and helps to improve the appearance of deep grooves around the mouth, resulting in a fresher and youthful look.
How the 8-Point Facelift works
With aging, our facial volume tends to decrease. The main signs of aging occur due to volume loss, skeletal remodeling, and repositioning of facial volume. Dermal fillers can be used to produce a more youthful appearance by restoring the volume, proportion, and symmetry of the face.
An important factor to note is that the 8-point facelift has more pronounced results and lasts longer if performed by a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist.
The targeted areas for the 8-point facelift are those that have lost the greatest amount of volume, with each point having a synergistic effect on the others, thus contributing to an overall enhanced appearance.
The target areas for the 8-point facelift include:
- Under-eye area
- Nasolabial folds
- Corners of the mouth
- Sunken area under the cheekbones
- Reduce Jowl
Good Candidate for the 8-Point Facelift
You can be the ideal candidate for the 8-point facelift if you have mild to severe skin wrinkling and moderate facial volume depletion.
This treatment can also be combined with other facial procedures such as wrinkle modifying treatments, skin treatments, and fat transfers to enhance the results.
Benefits of the 8-point facelift include:
- Improvement of facial expression
- Midfacial volume restoration
- Brighter smile
- Reduction of wrinkles
- Softening of deep facial wrinkles
- Fresh & relaxed look
- Non-invasive treatment
- Minimal downtime
Before starting the 8-point facelift, you will have a consultation with a Facial Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist where you will discuss your concerns and expectations. Your practitioner will then examine you by grading your upper, mid, and lower facial areas in terms of structure, proportion, and symmetry. He/she will prescribe a facial treatment plan that is tailor-made to you, improving your face as a whole.
During the treatment, the facial area will be cleaned with antiseptic. Using a fine sterile needle, your practitioner will inject the filler into the key areas of the fact that the 8-point facelift targets. Dermal fillers can be injected with minimal to no discomfort.
Recovery & Results
Following the procedure, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, and redness on the injection sites. However, these are temporary and tend to subside within a few days.
The results of the 8-point facelift are immediate but come into full effect once the swelling has gone down. The effects of the 8-point facelift can last for up to 18 months.
