What is a Non-surgical facelift (8-point lift)?
As we age, our skin loses hyaluronic acid (a natural sugar found within the skin). As a result, volume decreases and wrinkles and folds start to appear. Other factors like gravity pulls the skin down and results in sagging skin.
The 8-point lift is a non-surgical procedure that can be achieved to help ease signs of ageing or subtly enhances your natural features. It consists of injecting a hyaluronic acid gel also know as dermal filler in 8 specific areas of the face to try and reverse the signs of ageing.
What are the benefits of Non-surgical facelift (8-point lift)?
The 8 point lift will restore lost volume to cheeks, will help attenuate the nose to mouth lines as well as the mouth to chin lines also known as the marionettes lines. It will redefine the jawline and improve the jowls that often start forming as we age. After addressing these specific areas, you will look fresher and rejuvenated.
The results are immediate and can last up to 18 months.
What is involved in Non-surgical facelift (8-point lift)?
During a consultation, one of our practitioner will examine your face. They will determine if you are suitable for this procedure. If so, photos will be taken before the procedure.
The skin will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution and the practitioner will mark the areas to inject. A topical local anaesthetic cream will be applied to your skin. It will be left on for about 20 minutes.
After the local anaesthetic is removed the practitioner will start injecting. Most injections will be done within the subcutaneous tissues or to the bone structure where a quantity of dermal filler will be placed.
Photos will be taken after the procedure, and this allows the practitioner to compare the results.
