The Non Surgical 8 Point Facelift
The 8 Point Facelift, also known as the non-surgical facelift, is a relatively new approach to cosmetic injections that aims to create a more youthful appearance without the downtime associated with traditional surgical facelifts. This technique involves skillfully injecting derma fillers into specific points on the face to lift and tighten sagging skin, restoring a more defined contour.
Despite its increasing popularity and obvious cosmetic benefits, the 8 Point Facelift is not without its risks and limitations, and it is crucial to understand these details before deciding to undergo this set of injections.
The 8 Point Facelift is an in-office treatment that uses a series of cosmetic injections (usually 1 – 2 sessions, 1 month apart) to achieve a more rested and youthful appearance. The traditional facelift is an outpatient procedure that involves surgical intervention to tighten the skin and fat transfer techniques to add volume. Surgical Facelifts offer more drastic and longer-term results, but also require greater preparation and more intensive recovery periods.
“The goal is to provide facial balance while still maintaining the unique structure of the individual face. We aim to highlight areas that bring positive attributes to the face and minimize or correct signs of aging or asymmetry.”
A patient who qualifies for a complete 8 Point Facelift can expect to receive 2 – 3 total syringes of dermal filler to address their cosmetic concerns.

How long does the 8 point facelift last?
On average, results from the 8 Point Facelift last 12 – 16 months. This is dependent on the type of filler used, your activity level and how your body typically processes the substance.
What is the preparation period & recovery process like?
Preparation and recovery for this treatment follow the same protocols as a normal filler injection treatment: Avoid alcohol, NSAIDs, fish oil supplements and dental appointments for up to 48 before the visit. The recovery period should be just about the same amount of time (1 – 2 days). Patients should stay hydrated, eat a well-balanced diet and avoid sweating heavily until the injection sites have fully healed as to minimize the risk of irritation
“Understand and managing healing expectations is crucial. Patients can expect to have bruising and swelling. The final results of this treatment will not be fully appreciated for a couple of weeks.”
Is the 8 point facelift right for you?
This is tough to answer without knowing you, the individual, and your goals. The 8 Point Facelift is a technique designed to address a number of cosmetic facial concerns. If you already have gorgeous cheekbones or those nasolabial folds aren’t visible, you won’t need to target all 8 points. To put it simply: You can address multiple concerns in one treatment session without it being considered an 8 Point Facelift — this is just a term/technique that has been popularized over time due to its fairly drastic results without surgery!
