The 8 point face lift was popularised by the famous plastic surgeon from Brazil, Dr Mauricio De Maio. He studied the most critical areas of the face that led to the maximum change and coined this treatment. Whilst we agree with the areas recommended for treatment in this 8 point face lift, we feel every patient is different and it needs to be modified accordingly. In reality, the 8 point face lift at No Filter Clinic is our full face balancing treatment which is a far more bespoke treatment that we alter for each patient.
At No Filter Clinic we prefer to get the best results when we inject by doing slowly in fine threads, not through injecting a fixed amount that you then have to mould into shape. Think of a fine intricate painting, you will get more accurate details if you use a thin paintbrush vs a thick one. Full face balancing, also known as full face rejuvenation or non surgical face lift, is when we assess your entire face and inject filler in various structural areas such as your cheeks, jawline and chin. We strongly recommend everyone considers this full face approach to get the best results and features that are in harmony with your whole face.
We often find that treating one area can have an impact on another so having a full face approach allows us to use this to get you the best possible result. This is a highly bespoke treatment which is completely individual to you. With this approach we initially focus on the structural areas of cheeks/midface, chin and jawline. Think of this as the foundations of a house. We recommend then treating lips, under eyes, noses later as these can be thought of as the ‘interior decoration’ of the house, i.e. the final touches.
