What is The 8 Point Lift?
The 8 point lift was originally devised by Dr Mauricio De Maio, a plastic surgeon from Brazil.
Small adjustments are made in eight areas of the face to achieve an overall lifting effect, with the ethos being to treat minimally and precisely, looking beyond individual zones of concern to the definitive causes of the signs of ageing, which is often fat and bone resorption in predictable parts of the face.
The technique utilises non-permanent HA dermal fillers. These hyaluronic acid dermal fillers each work in specific ways to add volume and give structure to the face
Who is the technique suitable for?
It is a versatile technique suitable for a wide range of clients. For example, it is appropriate for clients in their mid 30s who might do a lot of physical training or those whom have had large weight fluctuations due to dieting, and has experienced significant fat loss shifts to their superficial fat compartments.
Other indications include post-pregnancy facial changes or illness. This technique addresses the variations that can give the face a tired appearance, despite a relatively young age.
The technique is also appropriate for patients 10 to 20 years older. These patients often notice further signs of facial ageing and descent within the face.
It has also been successfully used to treat clients in their 70s and above, who have advanced volumetric changes and descent, with results showing a pleasing lift.
This approach is effective for both male and female clients.
How long will the results last?
The results last around 12-18 months.
How much does it cost?
The 8 Point Lift is priced from £650-£850. The price is dependent upon the specific product used and the volume of dermal filler required.
The price will be confirmed following consultation.
