The 'Eight-Point Lift'

Using small amounts of dermal filler in varying locations in the face, we can create the appearance of a lift. The eight-point lift was developed by Dr Mauricio de Maio, an international expert and eminent plastic surgeon and has progressed into Allergan’s MD Codes.  Mark has trained with Dr. de Maio and is a keen advocate of this technique.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Dermal Fillers?

We use only the best dermal fillers at The Sperrin clinic – We use Teosyl RHA and Volift/Voluma by Juvederm. There are different types of filler within these ranges – our doctor will decide which one is most suitable for you. All our fillers contain a local anaesthetic which numbs the area during the injections. The results of filler are seen immediately and will continue to improve over the next 7 days.

The ‘Eight-Point Lift’ does not focus on one particular area of the face. Instead it used dermal filler in a more subtle way. By injection smaller amounts of filler into various problem areas of the face, you can achieve a subtle, fresh appearance. Smaller amounts of filler are injected into the 3 areas outlined below. Usually we would us a 1 ml syringe of filler initially, but another 1ml syringe may be necessary for the desired outcome.

What areas are treated?

Instead of focusing on the one area, with this treatment your face will be assessed and using smalled amounts of filler in each area, a subtle lift will be achieved. The areas treated will vary from face to face – but the main areas are:

The Cheek area
As we get older, or if we have lost weight, the little pads of fat which sit on the cheek bone tend to disappear. This loss of volume can leave you with a gaunt/sagging appearance. Dermal filler replaces the fat pads giving you a fresher more youthful appearance.

Naso-labial lines
These are the deeper lines which run from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth. Again they tend to become much more obvious with age. Filler is injected into the lines and plumps out the area, making the line much less deep. We tend to always try with 1 ml syringe of filler initially. The results will depend on the deepness of the lines to be treated. It is possible to add more filler at a later date.

Marionette lines
These also are deeper lines which start at the corner of your mount and run down your chin. They can give you an appearance of being glum and as for the naso-labial lines are easily plumped out using dermal filler. Again, the results will depend on the deepness of the lines to be treated. It is possible to add more filler at a later date.

What are dermal fillers made of?

The active ingredient of the fillers  we use is hyaluronic acid.  Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body.  The hyaluronic acid in our fillers is man-made and has a much better safety profile than older fillers made from animal sources or silicone.

Is the procedure painful?

Our clients tolerate this procedure very well.  The filler has a local anaesthetic in it, which numbs the area immediately.  You will be aware of having an injection and the area may be a little tender after the procedure, but certainly not sore.

How long will the effects last?

Voluma and Volift are our choice of filler because not only to they feel more natural and integrate more fully with your own tissue, but they also last much longer than other fillers.  Results do vary from client to client, but we have seen treatments last from 9 to 18 months. 

Can anyone have this treatment?

You may not have filler injected if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Clients of any age can have this treatment. If you are prone to cold-sores, our doctor may recommend a course of anti-virals after the injections to prevent a breakout.

After-care

As after any injection we recommend as little touching of the area as possible for the first 24 hours.

Pricing

† We believe that 1 ml of filler is a good starting point.  Results will however vary from person to person.  You can of course opt to have more than 1 syringe of filler, either at the same time or at a later date,  with the associated increase in treatment cost.
