If you start showing early signs of skin wrinkling and volume changes then you might consider treatment with dermal fillers. As a result you can expect reduction in visible wrinkles restoration of your facial volume and improvement of skin quality. Dermal fillers in small volumes can have a restorative effect on the volume of the face especially on the mid-face. In selected cases, an 8 point face lift is has more pronounced and lasts longer especially if performed by a facial plastic surgeon.
A more comprehensive approach to this treatment is referred to as a “non-surgical Facelift” “liquid facelift” or 8 point face lift and is best done by a facial plastic surgeon. It involves an analysis of the volume deficit and the injection of dermal fillers of autologous fat to 8 pre-determined areas. This like the use of isolated dermal fillers, also reduces sagging of the mid-face and helps improve deep grooves around the mouth, making you look fresh and youthful but is suitable for more extensive volume loss. It is often combined with other treatments like wrinkle modifying treatments, skin treatments and fat transfers.
As we age our face looses bone mass and the soft tissues lose their elasticity. The result is loosening of the skin and distortion of our expressive features. Dermal fillers have evolved to such degree that they can be safely injected into our body with minimal discomfort. Furthermore the side effects are kept to a minimum in the hands of a doctor that knows the facial anatomy.
Following an analysis of the volume loss, the areas to be injected are strategically marked and the areas restored. Results with the 8 point face lift are immediate with lifting of the jowls improvement of marionette lines and restoration of mid-face volume loss. These results ussualy last from 9 to 12 months. When fat transfer is used then these results are augmented by the stem cells derived from fat are also, longer lasting and more pronounced.
Patients presenting with mild to severe skin wrinkles and moderate facial volume depletion are good candidates for the 8 point face lift. In addition, patients with deep wrinkles and sun-damaged skins may also benefit from a combination of other procedures along with dermal filler, to enhance the outcome, including wrinkle modifying treatments, resurfacing techniques, and cosmetic procedures.
