The 8 point lift a 45-minute procedure which involves analysis of 8 specific points on the face. The procedure requires an artistic eye to determine which of the 8 points require filler. As each individual face varies from one to the other, the points of insertion will vary depending on the individual’s placement and use of muscles.
What does the 8 Point Lift achieve?
Essentially the 8 Point Lift works against the effects of gravity to tighten and uplift the skin. Whilst the skin loses its elasticity and plumpness, this can result in a sunken and droopy appearance. The procedure provides a subtle yet effective result through the minimal use of dermal filler material. Results from the 8 Point Lift result in an aesthetic which looks and feels natural. Through the particular placement, the shape of the face can be enhanced, lifting the structure and subtleties of the face. A generally brighter effect can be achieved through minimisation of dark circles which will add youth and rejuvenate the appearance of the skin.

Commonly Asked Questions
Is the 8 Point Lift the Right Treatment for Me?
If you desire a natural enhancement of your face, which can knock years off your age, the 8 Point Lift could be the perfect treatment for you. Unlike previous trends of fillers where faces appeared frozen and false, our treatment employs the necessary tweaks to regenerate and renew your skin’s youth.
Will the Procedure Hurt and How Long Will Results Take?
Dermal fillers are proven to be a safe and effective medical treatment which have a slim risk of implications. Effects from the 8-point lift are immediate as fillers have an instant presence. Even a small number of injections can result in a dramatic enhancement. After-effects are few and far between with very little swelling and bruising. Short-term effects involve small pinprick marks from the injections.
What are the Costs of the Procedure?
The 8-point lift is the most cost-effective method in delivering results with the use of an injectable product. The skill is knowing where and how to place the injections in order to positively influence the facial structure and so choosing an experienced practitioner is crucial in attaining the desired results. When it concerns your face, the quality of procedure will always outweigh the question of cost. At Glasgow Dental Practice you can hold trust in the expertise of our practitioners.
