THE 8 POINT LIFT BRISBANE MILTON BROOKWATER

Welcome to the transformative world of the 8 Point Lift, a specialised technique based on the revolutionary Md Codes by Brazilian Plastic Surgeon Mauricio de Maio. This approach strategically administers re-volumizing gel across the entire face, addressing the root cause for holistic facial enhancement. Unlike focusing on just one area like the lips or cheeks, we strategically lift the 8 crucial highlight points of your face, ensuring a natural and rejuvenated appearance. Whether it’s tear troughs, smile lines, or emerging jowls, we target these points for optimal, natural-looking results. Experience the power of the 8 Point Lift, where beauty meets precision for enduring and natural results.

Treatable Areas

Pre-Treatment Preparation

Timely Scheduling

Plan your appointment at least 2 weeks ahead of special occasions to mitigate potential bruising and swelling post-treatment.

Arnica Tablets

If you wish to minimise bruising, Arnica tablets can be taken a week before your treatment.

Medication Caution

Refrain from anti-inflammatory/blood-thinning medications 5-7 days prior to treatment, unless medically directed by your GP or specialist. This includes Aspirin, Vitamin E, Omega 3/Fish Oil Supplements, Ibuprofen, Advil, and other NSAIDS, as they can increase the risk of bruising, bleeding, and swelling after treatment.

Cold Sore Prevention

For individuals with a history of cold sores undergoing an 8-point lift treatment around the mouth, consider taking antiviral tablets either the day before or on the treatment day to reduce the likelihood of developing a cold sore post-treatment (available over the counter at a pharmacy/chemist with no script usually required).

Rescheduling for Illness

If feeling unwell or having an active infection, reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance.

Pre-Treatment Precautions

Avoid vigorous physical activity and excessive alcohol intake 24 hours prior to your treatment to minimise the risk of bruising.

Post Treatment Care

Avoid Alcohol and Strenuous Exercise

Avoid rubbing, touching, or massaging the treated area until the next morning. Refrain from facial treatments, lasers, or massages for one week post-treatment.

Minimise Touch

Avoid touching or rubbing the treated area until the morning after the procedure.

Makeup Application

Hold off on applying makeup to the treated area for 24 hours, unless using Dermaceutic K Ceutic recovery cream known for safe post-treatment use and wound healing acceleration (available for purchase in the clinic).

Post-Treatment Effects

Expect swelling, tenderness, and minor redness or bruising immediately after treatment, which typically subsides within a few days to a couple of weeks. Consider Bruise-eze cream for assistance in the healing process (available for purchase in the clinic).

LED Light Therapy

Accelerate healing and enhance results by adding Red LED light therapy to your treatment (available at an additional cost).

Swelling and Bruising Management

Use ice or a cold compress on and off for up to 48 hours to reduce swelling and bruising.

Avoid Pressure

Refrain from applying pressure to the treated area for 8 hours post-treatment.

Medication Considerations

Avoid blood-thinning medications (aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oils) for 48 hours post-treatment; opt for paracetamol for any discomfort.

Skin Treatments Postponed

Minimise sun or UV exposure and avoid extreme hot or cold temperatures, including hot foods and drinks if your lips have been treated. Hold off on facial laser treatment for up to two weeks.

Enhance Results with Skincare:

Consider medical-grade skincare to optimise volumising results. For product recommendations, reach out to The Aesthetic Co during your visit or inquire in the clinic.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TREATMENT ON THE DAY?

Come to your appointment without makeup. Refrain from engaging in strenuous exercise, consuming alcohol, or smoking on the day of your appointment. If you’re feeling unwell, consider rescheduling. Prior to your appointment, have a meal and stay hydrated to reduce the likelihood of experiencing light-headedness or dizziness during your treatment.

AM I SUITABLE TO RECEIVE THIS TREATMENT?

This treatment may not be suitable for you if you are currently pregnant, breastfeeding, or have open sores in the treatment area. Additionally, individuals with an active infection, undergoing a course of antibiotics, planning international travel within 2 weeks post-treatment, or managing uncontrolled medical conditions such as diabetes and blood clotting disorders may not be eligible for this procedure. Candidates with severe bee sting allergies, those intending to fly internationally within 2 weeks of the appointment, individuals who have had surgery within 8 weeks before the appointment, and those who have undergone major dental work 2 weeks before or plan to do so within 2 weeks after the treatment may also not be suitable for treatment.

HOW DO I KNOW IF THE 8 POINT LIFT IS FOR ME?

An ideal candidate for the 8-point lift typically exhibits the following:

  • Good skin elasticity
  • Mild volume loss throughout the face
  • Early signs of ageing
  • Desire for a subtly “lifted” appearance
  • Suitability for volumising treatment

The outcomes of an 8-point lift are understated, and while the procedure is named as such, it does not offer results comparable to those of a surgical facelift. Therefore, being a suitable candidate involves having early indications of facial ageing, as more advanced ageing or significant skin laxity may result in less satisfying results.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE 8 POINT LIFT?

The 8-point lift typically involves minimal to no downtime, with common side effects like swelling and bruising usually resolving within a few days. It offers lasting results without being permanent, allowing clients to experiment with a new look without a long-term commitment. Additionally, it can provide subtle enhancements for those seeking a discreet outcome. Moreover, the collagen inducing acids in our re volumising gel encourages collagen production in the treated areas, potentially resulting in firmer and smoother skin in the long run, even after the gel dissolves.

WHAT IF I DON’T KNOW WHAT I NEED TREATED?

Nurse Jacintha specialises in comprehensive full-face rejuvenation and is adept at evaluating your facial requirements. Schedule a complimentary consultation with or without treatment on the same day, and begin the journey toward realising your desired results.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

You will see results instantly, however, it may take up to 4 weeks post re volumising gel treatment to witness your complete results as the gel softens, integrates into the tissue, and swelling and bruising diminish. The longevity of re volumising gel treatment varies, ranging from 3-24 months, influenced by factors such as individual metabolism, lifestyle, treatment area, product type, and more. During your pre-treatment consultation, we will discuss these details with you.

For a favourable outcome, follow-up appointments are available at The Aesthetic Co. by Jacintha and are recommended. We suggest scheduling your post-treatment review appointment 2-4 weeks after the initial treatment. Additional products may be recommended during this appointment for an extra cost. Please be aware that achieving your aesthetic goals may require several appointments.

WHAT WILL MY RESULTS LOOK LIKE?

Anticipate the enhancement of a well-defined, model-esque cheek curve, a refined jawline, and subtle improvements in any sagging around the mouth and chin. This technique not only addresses wrinkles but also enhances the light-catching qualities of your facial bone structure.

The 8-point lift technique is beneficial in addressing early signs of ageing. Particularly effective for pronounced nasolabial folds, smoothing this area results in a refreshed appearance, and the lift restores lost volume in the cheeks and jawline.

HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY RESULTS?

It’s crucial to emphasise the necessity of maintenance and consistent skincare for sustained, long-term results. In my experience, an annual review and treatment with the 8 Point Lift have proven effective in maintaining natural and beautiful results. As time progresses, the evolving needs of clients and the ongoing effects of the ageing process on the skin, facial fat pads, ligaments, and bones can be addressed with small adjustments, helping to delay these changes.

HOW MUCH PRODUCT DO I NEED?

Everyone’s needs are unique, and the ideal amount of product for the best results depends on factors like volume loss and muscle strength. In our friendly pre-treatment consultation, we’ll chat about your specific requirements, and we’ll also consider lifestyle factors. To achieve the results you’re looking for, it might take a few treatments, making sure we tailor our approach to meet your individual expectations.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT POST TREATMENT?

It might take around 2-4 weeks after your re volumiser treatment to see the complete results as the product softens and blends into the tissue, and any swelling or bruising goes down.

As for how long the effects last, re volumising treatments can stick around for anywhere between 3-24 months, and this can be influenced by factors like your metabolism, lifestyle, the treatment area, and the type of product used. Don’t worry; we’ll go over all these details in a friendly consultation before your treatment. For a positive outcome, we recommend post-treatment follow-up appointments at The Aesthetic Co.

WHAT ARE THE COMMON SIDE EFFECTS?

When contemplating a re volumiser treatment, it’s essential to be aware of some mild side effects. It’s completely normal to encounter slight swelling, bruising, and redness at the treatment site, along with mild pain or tenderness at treatment points and minor bleeding. A few individuals might even feel a bit dizzy or nauseous. The good news is that these side effects are usually short-lived and should fade away soon after the treatment. Just follow your aftercare instructions, and if you have any concerns, feel free to reach out to Nurse Jacintha – she’s here to help!

IS THERE ANYTHING IMPORTANT I SHOULD LOOK OUT FOR?

If you notice any of the following symptoms, please get in touch with our clinic right away: unusual coloration (dusky or white) of treatment areas, mottling, or unexpected bruising, severe or increasing pain, redness, increasing warmth, or coolness to the touch, significant swelling, extensive bruising, itching, blisters, or pustules, loss of sensation or numbness, abnormal sensations in the affected area, difficulty swallowing or smiling, fever, or chills.
