A liquid facelift, also known as an 8-point facelift, is a non-surgical way to tackle the signs of ageing on the face to reveal a more youthful-looking appearance.
Whereas going under the knife would have previously been the only option for people who wanted to tackle the signs of ageing on their face, a liquid facelift offers a non-invasive, quick recovery option that will deliver the results you are looking for.
Liquid facelift: Before and after
A liquid facelift combines treatments to target eight specific areas of the face to create an overall enhanced look. In doing this it treats all the main facial areas that are associated with being affected by the ageing process.
It is natural that as people age their skin loses elasticity and volume, which can lead to areas of the face sagging and losing definition, or to fine lines and wrinkles appearing. Taken as a whole the impact of this can lead to your facial expression changing, leaving you looking tired or even angry.
An 8-point facelift uses a combination of dermal fillers and Botox to achieve a lifted, more youthful look.
Problems an 8-point facelift will target
An 8-point facelift strategically targets the eight main areas of the face that can be affected by the ageing process. These are:
1&2: A loss of definition and volume in the cheekbones
3: Bags and fine lines underneath the eyes
4: Nasolabial folds (lines running from the nose to mouth)
5: The mouth – wrinkles and drooping corners
6: Sagging jowls
7: A loss of definition on the jawline
8: Hollow cheeks
Liquid facelift before and after: What to expect
In targeting the areas of the face that have been affected by a loss of elasticity and volume, a liquid facelift will deliver noticeable results.
Dermal fillers will bring volume and definition back to the face to improve the definition of key features, including the cheekbones and jawline. It is also possible to include changes to the nose as part of a liquid facelift.
The lower part of the face will appear ‘lifted’, while cheeks will benefit from enhanced contouring as volume is restored. Wrinkles will be reduced, and skin will appear smoother and firmer. Definition and volume can be added to the mouth, while fillers can help to lift corners that may have started to pull downwards. As a whole, the face will appear rejuvenated and more youthful.
8-point facelift results:
- Lifted lower face
- Improved contouring
- Reduction in wrinkles
- Rejuvenated eye area
- Tighter, smoother skin
- More defined jawline
How long will the results of a non-surgical, liquid facelift last?
A major benefit of choosing a non-surgical liquid facelift is the lack of recovery time needed, and the amount of time the actual treatment takes. An 8-point facelift can be completed in as little time as one hour with no obvious need for any downtime, although the area treated may be delicate for two to three days.
Within 10 days you can expect to see the optimal results from a liquid facelift, with a younger looking rejuvenated appearance. As a non-permanent treatment the results will last for up to 14 months, with the option to return for further treatment or to target specific areas of the face.
Choosing a clinic for a non-surgical, liquid facelift
