Could The 8-Point Facelift Make You Look Younger?

The 8-point facelift is a popular treatment here at our Kent clinic, and it’s easy to see why. There are so many treatments and serums out there that promise to make you look younger, but the 8-point facelift is one that truly delivers on its promise… 

As you age, your face is typically the first place that you’ll start to notice it. Lines and wrinkles can leave you feeling insecure and unhappy with how you look. But the good news is that if you want to reduce these common signs of ageing without resorting to extreme surgery, there are plenty of effective non-surgical procedures to give you great results.

The 8-point facelift helps to reduce the common signs of ageing, rejuvenate your skin, and leave you feeling more refreshed. This solution is popular at our Kent-based aesthetics clinic because it is so effective at adding volume and structure to your skin while looking incredibly natural. 

The 8-Point Facelift: The Lowdown

The 8-point facelift has benefited from years of research and development; it was first developed by plastic surgeon Mauricio de Mai and has a huge fan base worldwide. 

The treatment is celebrated as one of the most advanced non-surgical approaches to anti-ageing. It uses longer-lasting dermal fillers at 8 specific points to replenish lost volume and achieve a highly flattering lift.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injections that plump up wrinkles and smooth lines on your face and restore lost volume. They contain hyaluronic acid, which increases your skin’s retention of moisture whilst stimulating your body’s natural collagen production.

Collagen is an important substance in your body, including the skin, muscles, bones and connective tissue. As you age, your collagen stores deplete, which causes loose skin and a loss of volume. Essentially your skin becomes thinner, losing its elasticity and begins to sag and crease.

What Are The 8 Points In The 8-Point Facelift?

Under Eye Area

Dark circles under the eye can start to form as early as your mid-20s. Targeting this area will improve this by rejuvenating and plumping it out. The dips that often accompany dark circles are sometimes called tear troughs, and these can make you look ill and tired. The filler helps to smooth this area for a refreshed and healthy look.

Nasolabial Folds 

These are the nose-to-mouth lines that become deeper and more prominent with age and can make you look older. 

Upper Cheeks

Ageing can cause a ‘hollowing out’ of your cheeks, giving you a gaunt appearance when the volume is lost. Dermal fillers here replenish the lost volume, tighten your skin and provide a substantial lift to the rest of your face.


Your cheeks are the most fleshy part of your face, so when they start to sag, it can significantly affect your appearance. Adding volume to this area gives you a peachy youthful look.

Corners of Mouth 

Also known as your marionette lines, ageing can cause the corners of your mouth to turn down. The 8-point facelift targets the area, not as a lip enhancement but rather to lift a sad mouth into a more appealing position. 


These are the saggy jowl folds beneath your chin and jawline that can become more prominent as your collagen levels deplete. Targeting this area helps to re-contour and tighten.

Jaw Line

Treating the jawline also helps to treat jowls and create a sharper jawline by creating a subtle lift.

Will The 8-Point Facelift Make Me Look Younger?

The fantastic results are what attract people to this treatment. The 8-point facelift is proven to reduce the signs of ageing and give you a younger appearance. 

Many patients who have opted for the treatment at our aesthetic clinic in Kent, have loved their natural results and felt that they had rewound the clock by years. 

Each zone that is treated helps to restore plumpness and smooth out lines and wrinkles, which leaves you looking healthy and radiant.

The 5 key issues that the 8-point facelift can treat are:

  • Sunken Eyes – where the skin around the eye area loses its elasticity and starts to sag.
  • Sagging Cheeks – as you age, your cheek pads start to slip downwards, changing the shape of your face.
  • Jawline Definition – your skin and muscles can start to droop here, making you look older.
  • Smile Lines – These lines can also make you look older, and the deeper they become, the harder they are to cover up.
  • Hanging Jowls – the loose skin that hangs under your chin becomes pronounced as you lose elasticity. Tightening this area makes a significant difference to your whole face.

Are There Any Other Benefits?

Kickstart Your Natural Defences

Dermal fillers help your skin’s natural production of collagen, which in turn helps you to achieve a naturally youthful look.

A More Cost-Effective Option

If you were to target each of these areas separately, it would cost you more money, and it would take longer to see the results.

Instant Results

Patients who have had this treatment at our aesthetic clinic in Kent, have experienced natural-looking results instantly. 

Fast Treatment With No Downtime

The treatment is non-invasive, meaning there is no downtime, and the procedure can be done in as little as an hour. You’ll be able to go about your normal day-to-day routine immediately afterwards.

How Does The 8-Point Facelift Compare To Other Anti-Ageing Treatments?

There are lots of other treatments that can offer similar anti-ageing results. Two of the most popular options are Botox and the thread lift.

Botox, although popular and effective, does not offer the same results. Botox can make natural facial expressions difficult after treatment, thanks to the nerve-blocking aspect of the injections. The use of dermal fillers with the 8-point facial provides a more natural result, allowing patients to retain natural facial movements. 

A thread lift is similar in popularity and offers similar results to dermal fillers, especially in boosting natural collagen production. However, the beauty of dermal fillers targeting specific points, is that your practitioner will have much better control over targeting specific areas with the right amount of filler required for your desired results.

Is The 8-Point Facelift Right For You?

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
