8 Point Lift


The 8 point lift is a new approach, utilising the new Juvederm Vycross collection of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers for facial revitalisation and shaping.

The procedure, developed by Dr Mauricio de Maio, is delivered in 8 distinct treatment areas to achieve the most natural result and maintain each patient's unique facial expressions.

The 8 point lift treatment is individualised to each patient using the Juvederm family of HA fillers - including Juvederm Volbella with Lidocaine, Juvederm Volift with lidocaine, and Juvederm Voluma with lidocaine. 

The procedure recommends as sequence of specific injection sites that should be adapted based on each patient's profile to achieve the optimal outcome. 

Facial enhancement and revitalisation have moved beyond wrinkles effacement and surgical facelifts - to an approach that subtly reshapes and redefines.

This comprehensive, multimodal approach permits our practitioner Diane Plummer RGN (BSc) Hons Dip HE INP to develop an 8 point lift aesthetic treatment plan tailored to each clients individual needs which is designed to produce a natural look.

Volume loss and the ageing process


Facial volume loss contributes significantly to facial ageing. Volume deficits are a result of the loss and repositioning of facial fat, as well as from skeletal remodelling.

By looking for facial shadows and depressions when assessing our clients, it is possible to help identify where this volume has been lost. Typically this occurs in the following areas of the face

  • Malar region - Volume loss in the malaria region contributes to looking old and unwell.
  • Tear trough and infraorbital area - Concavity under the eye is due to changes in soft tissue and skeletal structure. This creates hollow depressions and flattening of the cheeks that can contribute towards a tired look.
  • Nasolabial fold and the effect go gravity - Loss of elasticity combined with the fact of gravity can lead to a more prominent nasolabial fold.
  • Cheek bone definition and structure - Youthful cheeks naturally have more volume which makes them smooth and well defined. With ageing, this youthful definition is gradually lost as volume levels are depleted.
  • Mouth frown - Over time, there is a loss of the upward turning of the mouth corners.
  • Pre-jowl area - The pre-jowl depression is the result of sagginess (skin laxity and subcutaneous fat loss and redistribution) that gradually appear with ageing and create a heavy appearance of the lower face.
  • Jawline - There is a loss of definition in the jawline due to ageing.


The 8 point lift has been designed to promote a lifting effect in patients who have lost volume or desire structural enhancement to accentuate certain facial features.
