As we experience the first signs of ageing – we can start to notice a “tired” appearance, more noticeable nasolabial folds, a downturn of the mouth, or general heaviness in the lower face. The cause of this: collagen and elastin loss, bony reabsorption and the fat pads of our face starting to shrink and drop.
To combat these changes in our face in a non-surgical way – “the 8 point lift” with dermal fillers was developed. The 8 point approach is part of the Md Codes, created by world famous Brazilian plastic surgeon Mauricio De Maio – a renowned expert on facial filling and minimally invasive techniques.
We always take a holistic approach to ageing, combining powerful skin care and treatments with dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers. It is important to look at the source of the problem. Treat with the correct product, and approach every treatment as a journey.
The 8 point lift is a holistic approach, which treats the cause of the problem area – rather than the problem area itself. Results should be a “fresher” look, with natural and more refined facial contours, and less shadowing. This approach involves a series of injection points – tailored to each individual – which work together to lift, balance facial contours, and restore harmony to the face. By treating the face as a whole, the most natural and optimal results will be achieved.
In order to diminish the signs of ageing and achieve complete facial rejuvenation, dermal filler is injected, with a fine needle. This non-invasive procedure is designed to cause minimal pain and discomfort to the patient, with the administering of a local numbing cream to the areas 30 minutes before your treatment.
The 8 Point Lift will start with a personalised consultation to examine what areas of the face require treatment and decide how much dermal filler will be used. The procedure is estimated to last around 30-50 minutes; this will depend on the areas the patient wishes to be treated and how the qualified registered nurse administers the injections. There is minimal downtime and recovery associated with this non-surgical procedure as volume restoration, definition and a lift is instantly noticeable. There may be mild swelling and bruising right after the treatment and the full results of the dermal fillers can be enjoyed within two weeks, with best results at 3 – 6 weeks post.
This treatment will restore your youthful contours by supporting your facial structure, and enhancing your beauty at every age and stage of your life. We recommend a complimentary review every 9 – 12 months to continue your journey of softening the ageing process, maintaining the freshest looking version of you.
