The 8-Point Facelift was originally created by the world-famous Brazilian Plastic Surgeon Mauricio de Maio. Dr Joney trained with Dr Maio in this procedure and Dr Joney De Souza Skin and Laser Clinic has adopted this treatment to give our clients a proven solution to the loss of facial volume which can make our faces look tired and sagging, without the need for surgery.


“I really thought I needed a facelift and had no idea there were alternative treatments out there until I discovered the 8 Point Facelift. At least now I know that surgery isn’t the only option!”

What is it?

The 8 Point Facelift restores volume in eight strategic areas, giving maximal lift and support using a relatively small amount of dermal fillers. The results are instant, with minimal discomfort or downtime.

This technique is ideal in anyone who is starting to notice some skin laxity. The most common things people with skin laxity report include

– sagging skin

– ‘tired’ looking under eye area

– jowls along the jawline

As we get older our faces lose volume. The 8 Point Facelift is used to target these areas of lost volume using hydrating dermal filler to create a naturally lifted result with little discomfort or downtime.

Who is suitable?

Following a full consultation with Dr Joney De Souza, who will take your medical history and assess your suitability for the treatment.

What’s the treatment like?

The eight strategic lifting points are a general guideline which Dr Joney will tailor to your needs. A personalised consultation is necessary to determine the best ‘total look’ for your face. Dr Joney De Souza will then spend approximately 30-50 minutes using a combination of the very best dermal fillers and injecting them into key areas across the face. These eight key areas include:

  1. Cheek
  2. Tear Trough
  3. Nasolabial
  4. Mouth corners
  5. Pre-jowl area
  6. Jawline
  7. Lower cheek
  8. Marionette Lines

Results are instant, and Dr Joney De Souza will work with you showing you the gradual results in a mirror to check the progress. You should expect a natural lifted result and a more youthful fullness to the face.

Results can last on average about 12-18 months, however supplemental ‘touch up’ treatments may be required to achieve and maintain the desired look.

What happens afterwards?

There is very minimal or no downtime. We can apply mineral makeup, and you can often go straight back to work.

Strenuous exercise, going in a spa/sauna or drinking alcohol for the first 24-48 hours should be avoided.

We do not recommend having this treatment within two weeks of a special event (in case there is bruising), or within one week of an international flight (this can prolong swelling and increase the chance of infection).
