Non-surgical cosmetic procedures are often used to tighten areas of the skin to provide a more youthful look. They are popular among various age groups due to minimal recovery time and side effects. The face is an area of the body that many people choose to have non-surgical cosmetic treatments. This blog is your guide to an 8-point non-surgical facelift.
Want plumper cheeks? Are you fed up with eyes like tired hollows and volume loss in the skin? Having a facelift may seem daunting, but it doesn’t need to be, especially when you can achieve fantastic results without invasive treatment.
Many options can be used to perform a non-surgical facelift; some are often used in conjunction with others. An 8-point non-surgical facelift is a popular treatment due to its ability to target multiple areas and provide the ultimate facial rejuvenation.
What is an 8-point nonsurgical facelift?
An 8-point facelift is often referred to as a liquid facelift. This is because dermal filler is used to create a more toned complexion. A non-surgical facelift can accentuate your facial features while giving you a natural, refreshed look.
As the name suggests, dermal fillers are injected into 8 points around the face, and this can help to create symmetry and helps to balance the skin.
Dermal filler treatments are often used to restore volume in the face while reducing the appearance of sagging skin. They are also popular for reducing wrinkles, and other facial lines that appear as the skin loses elasticity.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injections containing hyaluronic acid. Dermal filler injections can create a more defined overall facial structure and encourage smoother skin. In addition, dermal fillers are used for non-surgical facelifts as they allow for precise injecting sites.
Which 8 points will be targeted?
The ageing process occurs in all face areas, but people often find more issues in the mid and lower face area. Here are the targeted areas –
- Cheekbone area (x2)
- Tear troughs
- Nasolabial folds
- Mouth corners
- Prejowl area
- Lower cheek volume
This treatment offers a holistic approach. Each targeted injection will add more volume to the skin and give you a more youthful appearance. Due to the nature of the areas injected, having an 8-point non-surgical facelift may reduce signs of tiredness and ageing around the injection sites.
Do I need a consultation before my 8-point facelift?
Before your treatment, you will have an in-depth consultation with a highly skilled practitioner to ensure that this is the most appropriate treatment to achieve your desired look. Within this appointment, your practitioner will likely discuss how long the results should last and how often you could have the treatment to retain your desired look.
We use the highest quality fillers for our non-surgical cosmetics in Blackpool.
What are the benefits of the treatment?
One of the main benefits is that the skin on your face will become tighter. This creates a toned effect that leads to a more youthful complexion. Another huge benefit of a non-surgical cosmetic treatment is the minimal recovery time required after the treatment.
Does an 8-point facelift hurt?
Before the procedure begins, you will be given a local anaesthetic in the form of numbing cream. The numbing cream helps to relieve any discomfort during the process. You may feel some pinching during the procedure, but you should not be in pain.
If you are worried about the treatment hurting, please speak to your practitioner, who can support you.
What happens after the treatment?
Most people can continue their day as usual after having an 8-point facelift. However, it is not uncommon to experience mild swelling and bruising around the injection points after non-surgical treatments.
Due to the 8-point non-surgical facelift utilising dermal fillers, results can be visible immediately after the treatment.
At Therapy House, we give our clients access to a 24-hour contact number so they can easily speak to a practitioner if they have any queries or concerns.
Aftercare & treatment plan for non-surgical procedures
Following your 8-point facelift, you’ll be given all the relevant aftercare support by a trained practitioner at our beauty clinic near Blackpool.
You should try to avoid some things after an 8-point facelift, such as drinking alcohol and medications that can affect blood clotting. You should also avoid strenuous exercise and excessive sweating from hot baths and saunas.
One of the key benefits of a non-surgical treatment is that there are minimal risks involved. Due to this, any side effects that you experience should be of temporary nature.
How long will the results last?
The length of time dermal fillers last can vary. Some find they last for around 4 – 6 months, while some fillers last up to 18 months. After this time, you can choose to top up your filler if you’re still after a younger-looking appearance.
