8 Point Lift
As we age we lose elasticity in our skin, our facial structure changes and gravity takes its toll on the face. This can cause the appearance of premature ageing in the face, particularly around the cheek and eye areas, where skin droops and can look hollow.
The 8 Point Lift is a new revolutionary non-surgical face lift, which produce a comparable transformative lifting and rejuvenation result, but without the cost, downtime or risk involved with surgery.
The 8 Point Lift (known also as Liquid Facelift) is a technique designed to lift and rejuvenate eight strategic areas of the face. The treatment uses a combination of dermal fillers and Botox injections to lift the tissues and structure of the face.
At Miss Amber Aesthetics, we only use long-lasting and advanced Juvederm® hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, which include an lidocaine so the procedure is virtually painless.
HOW DO I KNOW IF ITS RIGHT FOR ME?
You're consultation starts with a detailed recording of your medical history. The 8 Point Face lift is a bespoke procedure where Miss Amber will discuss the look you wish to achieve and conduct a careful examination of your face.
If you decide to proceed then Miss Amber will explain which dermal filler option is best for your requirements and what would be the end result after the procedure. The price will also be confirmed at consultation – prices varies from £1,500 to £2,900 including lift to cheeks, jowls and mouth. You would be advised to go away and think about what was discussed during consultation before proceeding.
How Are 8 Point Face Lift Administered?
The dermal filler is gently injected into specific areas of your skin to reduce the depth of the skin crease. Miss Amber will customise the exact depth and number of injections to give you the most subtle and natural result. In order to achieve the most effective result different dermal fillers will be administered in different areas of your face:
Cheek bone/structure: volumising the cheek bones often helps to lift the nasolabial folds and adds to the overall impact
Tear troughs: Rejuvenating tired hollows under the eyes leads to a more awake, alert and youthful look
Nasolabial fold: Smoothing out the lines which appear in the nose to mouth area improves the youthful and fresher appearance
Mouth corners: Lift the mouth area can improve a person’s appearance, smoothing away any ageing angry or sad look
Pre-jowl folds: The procedure can assist to reduce or improve jowls caused by loss of volume in the jaw, cheek and chin area
Jawline areas: A subtle lift to the jawline can produce a more youthful ‘V’ instead of an ageing ‘U’ shaped chin and jaw area
Lower cheeks: Hollow cheeks are ageing and gaunt, but also impact on the rest of the face too. Smoother, plumper cheeks lift the whole face
The procedure usually takes about 30-60 minutes and the results are immediately visible. Most patients continue with their normal day after treatment.
The treated area should be left alone for 48 hours to settle down. Immediately after treatment it is quite normal for there to be slight redness, swelling and tenderness around the treated area. Occasionally some bruising may occur around the treated area; this is usually short term and will subside within a few days.
WHAT IS THE AFTER CARE?
Until the initial swelling or redness has resolved it is recommended that you do not use any make up for 12 hours following the treatment. It is also recommended not to use sunbeds, saunas, steam rooms, and avoid extreme temperatures.
We will arrange to see you for a review of your treatment after two weeks
