When the ageing process starts, eyes and cheeks will start hollowing out, and this can give the impression of a tired and sagging complexion.
The 8-Point Lift is a relatively new approach to achieving younger looking skin. The procedure was created by Dr Mauricio De Maio, a plastic surgeon from Brazil. His philosophy was to use a minimalist but precise approach. The procedure is a non-surgical approach for facial rejuvenation, shaping and lifting. It’s perfect for people who start noticing sagging skin or have a tired under eye area.
It targets 8 key areas of your face. These areas will be revitalised and lifted for a more youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid is injected directly into the eight areas starting from your cheeks to your jawline. The first three points are along the cheekbone and under the tear through. The fourth point is from the nostrils to the corners of the mouth. Point 5 is under the bottom lip and points six and seven are along the jawline. The last point is at the front of the ear. However, it is not necessary to inject in all points as each individual is different.
Here are our top 5 benefits:
1. Easily and efficiently creates volume
The perception of a lift is made possible by reinflating particular points in the face. Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance we already have naturally in the skin which with age decreases. Although in the past fillers were used only to fill in wrinkles, now they are used quite a lot in creating volume.
2. More chiselled features
The procedure also brings definition to the cheekbones and can create the appearance of a sharper jaw.
3. Creates symmetry
It has been noted that the more equal a face is, the more beautiful it’s going to be perceived. This is because humans process symmetrical images easier and more quickly than with asymmetric pictures. However, even people born with pretty symmetrical faces, notice a decrease in this as they age. The 8-Point Lift is great in creating or restoring symmetry to the face. What is great about this procedure is the fact that as it focuses on the entire face as a whole, the chances of one feature being disproportionate with the rest of the face are very slim.
4. No downtime
The 8-Point Lift is a non-surgical procedure, therefore there is no down time needed. You might experience some minor redness or bruising, but overall you should be able to resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure.
5. Results last longer
Compared to other non-surgical lifts, the 8-point lift offers results that can last up to 18 months.
