What is an 8 Point Facelift?

The new 8 Point facelift is a hot topic amongst beauty bloggers right now.  With it’s significant but natural effects, it’s clear to see why.  Even those who swore they would never touch a needle are trying this new non-surgical face lift. We explain how the eight point face lift system is different and why you should try it.

You may be hesitant to try Botox in Bournemouth or dermal fillers after seeing the ‘frozen face’ results from inexperienced practitioners.  MD codes are different.  The innovative 8 point facelift takes any unpredictable guesswork out of the equation.  Dr Maio’s dermal filler system instructs aesthetic practitioners where to inject fillers to create specific changes or movement in the face.  MD codes in the 8 point facelift also provide detailed recommendations of the correct amount of filler to use.  This prevents any risk of puffy ‘pillow face’ effects.

What do MD Codes do?

The main aim of MD codes is to reverse signs of gravity and ageing.  Dermal fillers are applied to tighten areas of the face which is starting to sag or plump areas that need more volume.
Some common areas include:

• Lifting cheekbones
• Reduce lines from the nose to the mouth
• Add symmetry
• Plump hollow areas under the eyes

This system only uses the minimal number of injections to create a youthful and natural look appearance.

Does the 8 point facelift hurt?

You may experience a slight stinging in the areas being treated. However, the fillers are applied with an ultra-thin needle, similar to lip fillers, so the discomfort is minimal.  There is also lidocaine in the fillers.  So any minimal pain or discomfort will soon fade soon after the treatment is complete.

How long does a 8 point facelift last?

This cosmetic treatment procedure only takes between 45 mins to 1 hour to complete.  As each treatment is bespoke to the individual some procedures may not need fillers in all 8 points.

The stunning results of the 8 point face lift system can last up to 18 months.  Length of results may vary depending on the type of dermal filler use and the areas which are treated.

Can Dermal Fillers help acne scars?

Even if the worst of your acne-ridden days are long gone, the evidence can remain on your face. Acne affects nearly all of us at some point but long-term physical scarring affects 20% of acne sufferers. At our skin clinic in Bournemouth, we understand that acne scarring can have deep impact on your self-esteem. Many of our patients talk about the impact of scarring has on their daily routine. But here we discuss how acne scarring can be treated with dermal fillers to help you feel confident in your own skin.

How dermal fillers treat acne scars

Dermal fillers in Bournemouth are ideal for treating specific types of acne scars. The treatment is most effective for ‘rolling’ scars (a wave-like indentation in the skin) and ‘boxcar’ scars (similar to chicken pox scars). The hyaluronic acid from the facial fillers are injected into the skin to plump the indentation. This adds volume in the skin to create a smooth surface texture.

What to expect

We recommend having an in-depth skin consultation with your facial aesthetic practitioner before starting treatment. They will discuss with you your requirements and the best type of dermal filler for your treatment. During your cosmetic treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and the dermal fillers will be injected into the desired areas. You may feel a little stinging sensation, but this discomfort is only temporary. The procedure is simple, and the results can be seen immediately.

Other cosmetic treatments for acne

If you are suffering from acne on a regular basis, try a chemical peel in Bournemouth. Chemical peels are very effective at decreasing acne breakouts and can help fade the signs of discolouration.
