What is an 8 point facelift?
The 8 point facelift is a non-surgical facelift using dermal filler. It is a specialised volumising and lifting facial treatment, also referred to as a fluid or liquid facelift. Dermal fillers are used in 8 key areas to enhance and lift the face for a total rejuvenating effect.
8 Point Facelift areas of the face
- Areas 1, 2 and 8 define the cheek bones.
- Area 3 works to fill hollow tear troughs (under the eyes).
- Area 4 fills and softens nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines)
- Area 5 lifts the mouth corners to improve marionette lines.
- Area 6 reduces sagging jowls.
- Area 7 defines the jawline for improved facial structure.

8-Point Face Lift Treatment
You will have a consultation with our 8-point lift specialists who will listen to your facial concerns and assess if the treatment is best suited to you, based on your desired goals.
When you arrive for your 8-point lift treatment. Your expert aesthetic doctor or nurse will first go over the treatment again and cover any side effects and what downtime/recovery time to expect.
Your face will then be cleansed ready for the treatment to start.
Dermal filler will then be injected into 8 specific points on each side of the face:
- Tear Troughs (Under eye area)
- Cheek Bones (3 points for overall facial definition and structure)
- Nasolabial folds
- Mouth Corners
Restoring volume in the specific eight points, on each side of the face, at the same time, ensures that a balanced lift is achieved.
It is an advanced and precise technique for total rejuvenation. It combats soft tissue loss associated with the ageing process and offers a more complete solution for all areas of the face compared to individual dermal filler treatments.
