The 8-point lift was originally devised by Dr Mauricio De Maio, a plastic surgeon from Brazil and is highly respected as an advanced anti-ageing technique or ‘non-surgical face lift‘.
The technique uses the latest Juvéderm Vycross longer lasting (non-permanent) dermal fillers at 8 specific points in order not only to replenish lost volume but also to achieve a highly flattering lift.
The 8 injection points are extremely important in this procedure, as they work together in harmony to create an effective and natural-looking result.
What are the ‘8 Points’?
The 8-point face lift injection points are described as follows:
- Over lateral zygoma (upper/outer cheekbone)
Juvederm Voluma here helps lift the area and restore a more youthful curve
- Over junction of maxilla and zygoma (cheekbone)
This helps to support and lift the mid-face as well as improving hollows beneath the eyes
- Malar fat pad (within the cheek/mid face)
This injection point helps to support the tear trough and can also contribute to the lifting of lower tissues such as nasolabial folds
- Canine fossa (nasolabial folds)
This acts directly on nose to mouth lines for a younger look
- Point of support for oral commissure (marionette lines/mouth corners)
Here the injection works to reduce downward smile lines, especially effective where the patient has a sad or angry look caused by lines/ageing
- Pre-jowl sulcus (hollow along jawline)
Improved support and definition for the jawline and chin, especially effective where the chin appears recessive or ‘weak’
- Angle of the mandible (jawline)
This injection lifts the face by subtly increasing the structural support for facial tissues
- Sub-zygomatic hollow (lower cheek hollows)
Improving and lifting hollow cheeks to improve a gaunt look
It is the combined impact of this series of injections which makes the procedure so effective as a holistic rejuvenation and lift which looks entirely natural.
