8 Point Lift

As we age, our skin can take on a loose, wrinkled and crepey looking appearance and our efforts to cover up and improve its appearance can often end up making it more noticeable.

At The Private Clinic our fully qualified and experienced nurses, doctors and surgeons will help you achieve a natural refreshed look. You will wonder why you did not come and see us sooner. The liquid facelift or MD codes is a quick treatment with little downtime.

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 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
  • Jowls
  • Jawline

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.

After your 8-Point Lift Treatment

The results of an 8 point facelift are visible immediately.

Mild swelling, bruising or redness may occur but this is temporary and should resolve within a few days.

Overall there is barely any downtime associated with the procedure, many patients return to work straight away – making it a very popular lunch-break treatment.

8 Point Lift Results

The results of an 8 point facelift are best seen after 2 weeks. The results are expected to last up to 18 months. The duration of your results may vary depending on your facial structure and the rate at which hyaluronic acid is broken down within your body.



What is the 8 Point Lift?

The 8 Point Lift, also known as a Fluid Face Lift can treat a range of different concerns, revealing a younger looking you.

The treatment usually involves three sessions:

Appointment one will be a 30 minute consultation with one of our cosmetic doctors. We will examine your face and talk to you in depth about what you would like to achieve before beginning your treatment as appropriate.

Appointment two will usually take place two weeks later. Dermal fillers will be used around the eyes and cheek bones to give your face a more defined look and to restore volume. We may also use fillers to restore fullness and shape to your lips, chin and nose. Different injection techniques will be used to make sure we get a result that is just right for you.

Appointment three will take place about six weeks later and the treatment will depend on the results achieved at your previous sessions. The doctor will assess your progress and add the final finishing touches as necessary. This way we can ensure you get natural looking, subtle results that don’t look ‘overdone’.

Does the treatment hurt?

Our Doctors are highly experienced in injectable treatments and their intricacy and light-handed skills make such treatments virtually pain-less.

How long will the results last?

For your safety, we only use temporary Dermal Fillers here at The Private Clinic. As such, the results are temporary meaning you will need to touch up periodically (probably every 6-9 months) to maintain the look. However, over time most people need less product, less frequently to achieve the results they want.

How much does 8 Point Lift cost?

The 8 Point Lift is carried out using a mixture of the highest quality fillers and costs around £1,200.

The cost of 8 Point Lift treatment will vary from patient to patient as it will depend on:

  • The type of dermal filler used.
  • The areas treated.
  • The amount of dermal filler used.

The best way to get an idea of how much 8 point lift treatment is going to cost is to book a consultation with one of our expert aesthetic doctors or nurses who will be able to provide you with an individual treatment plan to help you get the results you wish to achieve.

Consultations with our expert doctors or nurses are £50 however this cost can be redeemable against the price of treatment should you wish to book following your consultation.

Our prices are competitive and we only use experienced and qualified medical professionals at The Private Clinic to administer our dermal fillers. We believe our patients deserve the utmost safety in our care and we are committed to offering reliable, effective results.
