As a natural part of the aging process, our face shape changes over the years. As illustrated below, a youthful face has a defined jawline and much of its volume in the upper part. However, as facial volume depletes and the skin loses it elasticity with age, the face gains heavier jowls and hollowing in the upper parts of the face.
Fortunately, we have a solution in the 8-point lift. Using only the finest, proven dermal fillers available our medical practitioners administer a small amount of filler to 8 precise points on the face. This helps diffuse lines and lift the face for a more defined profile. At the Light Touch Clinic, we take a less is more approach to facial rejuvenation. Our skilled practitioners will gently replenish lost volume – not add volume that was never there.
The 8-point facelift is a great treatment for those who want to rejuvenate the entire face without going under the knife. As well as diffusing wrinkles, this treatment helps address the signs of a sagging lower face by replenishing depleted volume in the upper face and can remove under eye hollows.
Depending on the individual, the treatment takes between 30 – 60 minutes with minimal downtime, allowing many patients to go straight back to their daily routine*. We use only FDA-approved dermal fillers for the treatment. These are made from a substance found naturally in the body called hyaluronic acid. This means the body quickly accepts the procedure without complication*. Due to this, it is common for the treated area to be sensitive for just up to 48 hours, with most patients feeling fully recovered after two to three days*. Applying ice to tender areas can help speed up this recovery time*.
Hyaluronic acid is not a permanent filler, it is also naturally broken down over time This means that the results of the facelift are not permanent. Many patients only require a single session of treatment*, with results lasting between nine and twelve months*.
