Today on the Dr Christine Blog, we look at a popular procedure, the 8 point facelift
What is the 8 point lift?
Also known as a "non-surgical facelift" or "liquid face lift", the 8 point lift uses the most advanced dermal filler techniques to volumise and subtley lift the face to create a rejuvenated, fresher more youthful appearance. The results obtained often negate the need to undergo a surgical facelift.
As we age we lose elasticity in the skin and gravity draws the skin downwards causing the skin the sag, making us appear older. Using high quality dermal fillers from the Juvederm Vycross range including Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volift and Juvederm Volbella, and precise injection techniques, volume is restored creating a rejuvenated appearance. The 8 point lift offers a more complete solution compared to individual dermal filler treatments.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime and the results are immediately visible. Occasionally there may be some mild pin prick bruising which will settle in the next few days.
How long do the results last?
It is common for the results of an 8 point lift to last 15 to 18 months.
