What is the Eight Point Facelift?

Posted on Posted in Master Classes

The eight point facelift is a technique originally developed by Dr Mauricio de Maio who is a Brazilian surgeon.

Unlike the filling of lines and relaxing of muscles the eight point lift is a comprehensive, multimodal approach. This permits clinicians to develop aesthetic treatment plans tailored to individual patient needs and to produce a natural looking result.

The eight point lift technique developed by Dr de Maio uses the VYCROSS range of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers. This procedure, is delivered in 8 distinct treatment areas to achieve the most natural result. These areas are adjusted depending on the individual requirements; therefore practitioners require in depth knowledge and should attend a hands on course to perfect this technique.
