What is an 8 point facelift?

Non-surgical facelifts are a popular and widely available option for rejuvenating your facial structure and creating a more youthful appearance. But what is an 8 point facelift? And which areas does this target? 

So, what is an 8 point facelift?

By targeting 8 different and specific areas, the 8 point facelift is designed to address a range of issues including the loss of skin volume, sagging skin and fine lines and wrinkles. This is achieved with the use of dermal fillers using hyaluronic acid to replace lost volume, shape the skin and the facial structure, and to create full rejuvenation. 

Hyaluronic acid is a safe substance that is found throughout the human body, particularly in the skin, where it plays an essential role in hydrating and nourishing the skin cells. However, as part of the ageing process, natural stores of hyaluronic become depleted as the production of this slows down. As a result, replacing this with dermal filler injections can be highly effective.

What are the target areas for an 8 point facelift?

The 8 point facelift, like any other aesthetic treatment, is a personalised procedure that will be tailored to suit your requirements and needs. This means that the specific areas targeted can vary depending on your unique facial anatomy and aesthetic goals. By choosing a highly qualified and experienced practitioner, like us here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, you can be sure that this treatment will achieve the right results for your aims and goals. 

However, there are some areas of the face that are commonly chosen for an 8 point facelift, and these include:

  • The temples- As one of the first areas to show signs of ageing, the temples are a popular target area for the 8 point facelift. This is because the temples often experience a loss of volume and hollowing, fairly early in the ageing process. Dermal fillers can be highly effective when used in this area to restore volume and create a more youthful contour.
  • The cheeks- Dermal fillers for the cheeks are very popular as these can help to enhance the cheekbones and add volume to the cheeks. This helps to restructure the shape of the cheeks and can create a more youthful appearance. As a result, these are often included as part of the 8 point facelift, where dermal fillers will be precisely injected to achieve the perfect effect. This can be beneficial for counteracting sagging skin and improving the overall facial structure.
  • The tear troughs- One of the areas of the face that is often affected by loss of volume is the under eye area, or the tear troughs. Loss of volume here can create under-eye hollows and dark circles, which can make you look tired, even when you’re not. Dermal fillers can be very effective for filling these hollows and increasing skin volume here, which will reduce the appearance of dark rings and create a refreshed look.
  • Nasolabial folds- The lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth are called nasolabial folds, and these are a popular target for the 8 point facelift. In these areas, dermal fillers can be injected effectively to smooth out the lines and creases, creating a more youthful result and lifting the skin.
  • Marionette lines- These are the lines that run between the corners of the mouth to the chin. These can become more pronounced as part of the ageing process, and can make you look sad or unhappy when you are not. Dermal fillers are highly effective for softening and reshaping marionette lines, rejuvenating the lower face.
  • Pre-jowl area- Sagging in the pre-jowl area can contribute to an aged appearance, and is often one of the most problematic facial areas in terms of the signs of ageing. Dermal fillers are often used here to provide support and lift to this region, reducing the appearance of jowls. As a result, this is often a key part of an 8 point facelift.
  • Jawline- for both men and women, a well-defined jawline can be a key element of a youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are very popular along the jawline, as these can help to create a more sculpted and contoured profile.
  • Chin- the final point for many 8 point facelifts is the chin. Dermal fillers can be applied to the chin to improve its projection and symmetry, as well as to improve chin strength. This results in a more aesthetically pleasing, youthful profile.
