What is an 8-point face lift?

An 8-point face lift, otherwise known as a dermal filler face lift, is a cosmetic treatment that can achieve similar results to a traditional facelift procedure...but without any surgery. Dermal filler is injected into key areas of the face, resulting in a refreshed and rejuvenated look.

As we get older, our faces naturally lose volume and definition. You may notice that the skin on your face is beginning to sag, creating an aged appearance. This occurs because structural proteins like elastin and collagen break down with age.

By carefully administering face filler injections, the experts here at Dr Leah Clinics can restore your natural facial volume and shape. The result? A lifted and refreshed appearance that boosts your confidence without making you look like you have had 'work done'.

For the right candidates, this procedure may be considered a kind of non-surgical face lift. It works in two ways: firstly, through subtle filling of indentations, flattened or sunken facial areas caused by loss of face fat from ageing; and secondly, by contouring and smoothing areas such as the jaw to reduce the look of jowls.

If you have a relatively slim face that requires volume replacement, rejuvenation and lifting, then you are an ideal candidate for a non-surgical face lift.

This procedure can help with the following issues:

  • Loss of volume
  • Loss of definition (of cheekbones)
  • Mildly sagging facial skin (note: if you have moderate or severe facial sagging, we recommend a thread lift or Dr Leah Lift instead)
  • Marionette lines
  • Sagging jowls

This non-surgical face lift treatment involves injecting dermal filler into various areas of the face. One of our experienced cosmetic doctors will administer the treatment. It takes no more than 20 minutes and there is minimal recovery time, with most people returning to regular activity just hours after treatment.

Results last 12 to 18 months.

Dermal Filler Face Lift Reviews

Here’s what our clients have to say…
I had a liquid facelift, having never had any treatment before, so needless to say, I was apprehensive when I booked the appointment. Any nerves I might have started with were quickly quelled by Dr Manav, who performed the procedure with great care and attention to detail. He explained the procedure thoroughly and carefully, which was very reassuring. This, in turn, made me feel completely relaxed, and the result is perfect; it is exactly what I hoped for. Thank you!

Terry, 58
I could see my face was looking older, but I wasnt sure what I need to do; Dr Sheila instantly knew what I needed, she took great care in performing my treatment, and I feel so much better about how I look. I know I look better, but no-one has noticed I have had anything done, which is exactly what I wanted! Thank you so much.

Jean, 52
Dr Manav is thorough - he takes great care in what he does, and he has made me look a decade younger; thank you!

Sally, 63
Dr Leah Clinics took years off me without making me look weird or overdone; I feel I can highly recommend it. My liquid facelift was quick and easy, I could go back to work the next day, and I looked instantly better.

Non-Surgical Face Lift FAQs

What does an 8-point face lift involve?

After applying a numbing cream, your doctor will give you a series of small injections. This non-surgical face lift uses a range of dermal fillers to achieve the desired effect. Depending on your requirements, these can be administered to specific face areas like the cheeks, under the eyes, or lower face.

How much does an 8-point face lift cost?

During your initial consultation, your doctor will assess how much dermal filler will be required to achieve your desired results. Below is a costing based on premium dermal filler for long-lasting results.

4mls Dermal Filler

5mls Dermal Filler

6mls Dermal Filler

What results can I expect from a non-surgical face lift?

You will instantly see an improvement in your appearance, but the injections may cause some swelling and redness, which can take a day or two to settle. The best result is typically visible after around 7 - 10 days, once any mild swelling has subsided. The result will be an improved and rejuvenated facial appearance, which should appear more lifted but still look nice and natural.

How long does a dermal filler facelift take to settle?

Most people look fine by the next day. If you do have any swelling or bruising, it is likely to be mild and covered by the next day with makeup.

How long will the results last?

The results of a non-surgical facelift with face fillers typically last around 15 months, although the exact duration varies.

Are there any side effects?

Generally, the 8-point face lift s a very well-tolerated procedure that requires little or no downtime. Some patients suffer from mild swelling after dermal fillers, but this is a temporary reaction and will usually subside shortly after the procedure. You should be able to resume your normal routine by the following morning. Some clients can experience bruising, but avoiding blood thinners for several days before treatment can reduce the risk of bruising.

Are dermal filler face lifts safe for everyone?

This non-surgical face lift is not suitable for pregnant / breastfeeding women or for anyone who suffers from severe allergies. Any injectable procedure will only be undertaken after your face-to-face consultation with one of our medical practitioners, during which a full assessment will be carried out and a complete list of cautions and contraindications discussed.

Why is it called an 8-point face lift?

This name comes from the eight injection sites that are carefully targeted in order to get the best possible results. By injecting dermal fillers into eight key areas of your face, our expert doctors can help you to look more youthful without any invasive surgery.
