Everything you need to know about our non surgical face lift
The term ‘face lift’ frequently refers to a surgical procedure that tightens the skin around the jawline or other areas of the face. Our 8-point facelift is a non-surgical treatment that can achieve lifting and sculpting of the facial without the need of surgery.
What is the 8-point non surgical facelift?
The 8 point face lift is a non-invasive treatment for those looking to lift and rejuvenate areas of their face for a more youthful appearance. Facelifts have been popular in the world of cosmetic surgery for a while, because who doesn’t want to look younger? But recently the 8 point face lift has become just as popular, if not more, than traditional facelifts.
Rather than requiring invasive surgery and a painful recovery process, this non-surgical face lift is a simple procedure that instead uses injected dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers, hence it’s other nickname: the Liquid Facelift.
How does the non invasive facelift treatment work?
We use four syringes, all with the highest quality Juvederm fillers (so that the results are not only excellent but also long-lasting), which we’ll target to specific areas of your face. As you might have guessed from the name, the filler targets and lifts from 8 points – the 8 areas of the face that often lose their firmness as a result of age.
The 8 points focus on your cheek and jaw area, but the treatment will always be tailored to you individually. This is because everyone uses their facial muscles differently, and different people will have different thoughts about their desired result. But you can talk all of this through with your doctor, who will make sure you look and feel your best.
The injections will plump up your facial fat pads which have drooped and shrunken with age, so after the treatment you’ll find your face looks fuller in all the right areas, giving you an overall refreshed and youthful look.

Non invasive facelifts has become so popular lately not only because the treatment is so simple, but also because of the amazing results.
We’ve all seen examples of those facelifts-gone-wrong, where the results look fake and plastic-like, and we know that’s the last thing you want. So you’ll be pleased to hear that after the treatment you’ll look naturally rejuvenated, with your face gently contoured, your cheeks plumped and lifted, and your jawline more defined.
So in short, our non surgical facelift is popular because it will leave you looking naturally radiant. Plus, there’s the fact that it’s highly regarded as one of the most advanced non-surgical face lifting and contouring treatments in the industry.
Non surgical facelift FAQs
The treatment is fairly simple, so it only takes about 20-30 minutes to perform. However, your entire appointment will be slightly longer as you’ll be talked through what to expect and asked to sign all the necessary forms.
No, Numbing cream and ice packs are used during the treatment, which minimises pain. You may feel a little uncomfortable during the treatment, but this discomfort is usually very brief.
The beauty about this non invasive face lift is you’ll see the results of the 8 point lift immediately after treatment. You can look in a mirror throughout and directly after the procedure. You’ll likely have a little swelling, but this will go down within a day or two.
Thanks to the simplicity of the 8 point non invasive facelift, you may not need to take any time at all to recover. Any swelling should subside within 24 to 48 hours, and during that time we recommend you avoid strenuous exercise as well as swimming pools, spas, and saunas. We also suggest you take four hours after the surgery to give yourself time to relax.
So it’s best just to take it easy for a short while after the treatment, but if you do need to be out and about keep your exercise to a minimum. You can also apply concealer immediately after the procedure, so you won’t even need to go without makeup!
It’s also worthwhile booking your non surgical face lift a few weeks before any special events, just in case you have any bruising. The same also goes for long flights, as the atmosphere in planes can cause further swelling and increase the chance of infection.
The rejuvenating results of your non surgical facelift can last for up to 12 to 15 months, but for a great look year-round, we usually recommend repeat treatments every 6-9 months.
Touch up treatments can help you achieve and maintain your desired look, making sure you feel constantly confident and beautiful.
Before you go ahead with any treatment, surgical or otherwise, you’ll want to know if there are any possible side effects.
You’ll be pleased to hear that there are no serious side effects of the 8 point lift. The only thing to bear in mind is that sometimes minimal temporary side effects can occur, but these can easily be treated.
We use the highest quality Juvaderm filler which is recognised not just in the UK, but all over the world, as an advanced and safe filler. But still, everyone is different and in some cases, temporary skin reactions can occur, including redness, itching, bruising, and swelling.
It’s unlikely that you’ll experience any of these side effects, but it’s important to be aware of them just in case. And the good news is, even if you do experience one or even more of these side effects, they don’t normally last very long, and can be easily treated.
Infections can also occur, but we follow strict hygiene guidelines which are designed to prevent infection, so as long as you stick to the aftercare tips from your doctor, it’s incredibly unlikely that your non surgical face lift will cause an infection. Steer clear of exercise, swimming, saunas, and spas, and don’t go jet-setting too soon after your treatment.
