A tell-tale sign of ageing is a loss of volume in the face; skin starts to sag and, as a result, lines and wrinkles become much more prominent. Up until recently, invasive surgical procedures have been the only option to counter this effect. However, thanks to recent advancements in dermal filler products, the eight-point lift (or liquid facelift) has become an increasingly popular option.
The 8-point lift is a procedure developed by Dr Mauricio de Maio, a skilled and innovative plastic surgeon from Brazil. Maio noticed how the results of surgical facelifts were often unpredictable and, as such, introduced his new procedure as a set of guidelines – a way to ensure that clients always get the desired result.
Typically, an 8-point lift takes 45 minutes to complete and it involves the injection of dermal fillers at 8 different sites on the face. These sites are located along the cheekbone, nasal-labial folds, and jawline, under the tear trough and bottom lip, and at the front of the ear. In some cases, not all sites will need to be injected and the treatment will be tailored to meet your specific needs and requirements.
Here at 23DM, one of our lead cosmetic physicians – Dr Suha Kersh – is specially trained in medical technologies and has significant experience of performing an 8-point lift. She will judge where is best to inject the dermal fillers, closely monitoring the volume of filler used and ensuring that you receive the best possible results.
If you would like to reverse the pull of gravity and restore the volume in your face, an 8-point lift could be the answer. You can create a fresh, youthful look in under an hour and the results will last for approximately 18 months.
