The 8-point facelift, or non-surgical facelift, offers an effective and modern way to create a gentle facelift for a refreshed and rejuvenated look. The 8 Point Facelift is popular with healthcare professionals throughout the world and can be used in combination with toxin injections as a muscle relaxant to smooth dynamic lines such as frown lines and crow’s feet.
How does the 8 Point Face Lift work?
The 8-point facelift treatment uses dermal fillers in the key areas of the face in order to replenish lost volume and offer rejuvenation. A youthful yet natural appearance is given by restoring soft-tissue volume lost in the ageing process, without resorting to surgery.
Further fillers are used to pull back and anchor any loose or sagging skin of the lower face in the same vectors that a plastic surgeon would use for facelift surgery. To soften the dynamic lines around the eyes and upper face, we may additionally use Botulinum Toxin injections. When a more lifted contour is to be achieved to the jawline, we may utilise injections in the neck to help reduce tension on the platysmal bands.
At Canterbury Skin and Laser clinic, we only use the best known, approved brands of dermal fillers in our 8 point facelift, these include Restylane, Juvederm, Emerval, Perfectha and Belotero. Dermal Fillers contain Hyaluronic Acid, a hydrophilic substance that attracts and retains water many times its own volume. Texture and plumpness is improved by hydrating the skin from within. A natural, lifted contour and restored radiance is brought about using the 8-point facelift technique.
However, the 8-point facelift isn’t suitable for everyone, and proper cheek augmentation may provide better results in these cases.
At the Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic, you will have a thorough consultation with the doctor or nurse first to review your medical history and assess your suitability for this treatment. We listen to your concerns and what you are looking to achieve from the treatment and will then discuss treatment options and agree on a treatment plan with you.
