We’ve already talked about some treatments that can help get you ready for the party season, but sometimes you need something a bit more drastic. However, before you put ‘facelift’ on your Christmas list, there is a non-surgical facelift alternative you ought to know about.
The 8-point lift
The 8-point facelift is a revolutionary non-invasive face lifting treatment that uses dermal fillers to provide a lifting effect and restore volume in eight key areas of the face. The treatment can effectively deal with sagging skin, under-eye bags and jowls along the jaw, all using a relatively small amount of dermal filler.
What are the 8 points?
Top London cosmetic doctor, Dr Joney De Souza, learned this technique from its creator, pioneering Brazilian cosmetic surgeon Mauricio de Maio. Dr Maio identified the 8 key areas of facial volume loss as the following:
- The cheeks
- The tear troughs (under the eyes)
- The nasolabial area
- The corners of the mouth
- The pre-jowl area
- The jawline
- The lower cheek
- Marionette lines (mouth to chin)
How does the 8-point lift work?
By using a dermal filler to restore volume to these key areas, Dr de Souza can create a lifting effect on the whole face, giving a subtle but distinctly rejuvenated look – everyone will think you look fantastic, but no one will suspect you’ve had anything ‘done’.
The procedure takes a total of around 45 minutes and you can be back at work within 48 hours, with full results visible and any residual redness fading after around 3-4 days, making it the ideal treatment to have on a Friday so you can return to work on Monday refreshed and glowing.
