Natural Looking Facelift Without Surgery

You may have heard of “non surgical facelift,” “liquid facelift”, or the “eight point facelift”. These are various methods of replacing lost volume to the face with dermal fillers with the aim of restoring a more youthful appearance.


If you have never had cosmetic treatments before, and are wanting to subtly restore a more youthful appearance, replacing lost volume in the face with filler is a great place to start. Think of it as building the strong foundations for a house.

Tighten Facial Skin and Restore Volume

As we age, we lose bone and fat in the face, and collagen in our skin. Collagen is the protein that keeps our skin tight and minimises wrinkles and sagging. Ageing, and the loss of bone, fat and collagen causes the youthful “heart-shaped face” to fall with gravity, and become more “square” and hollow.

Not many people realise just how much difference replacing lost volume can make. People are often amazed that simply adding volume to the cheeks can have such an effect on bags under the eyes, and lines from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth.

Facial Rejuvenation

Non-surgical facelift is based on the principle of restoring volume to eight key points in the face, although in reality not everyone needs all eight points treated.

Just as everyone’s concept of beauty is unique and individual, so is the treatment of each face. Let’s look at some of the places where restoring volume with dermal fillers can restore a more youthful appearance:

  • Nasolabial folds are the lines running from the corners of the nose downwards to the corners of the mouth. As we age these lines can become deeper and more pronounced. Using filler to restore volume in the cheeks can “lift and flatten” these lines, minimising their appearance.The results are subtle, but noticeable. It is a very natural way of making someone look more youthful. Rather than look like you’ve obviously had fillers, it just gives you a subtle freshen up; like you’ve had a great night’s sleep.
  • Replacing lost volume in the hollows of the temples with dermal filler also can help restore a more youthful appearance to the face. It also acts to tighten skin under the eyes, giving a “mini-facelift” that can help to minimising wrinkles under the eyes.
  • Marionettes lines are the lines running from the corners of the mouth downwards to the chin. Using filler in the cheeks and jaw can help to can “lift and flatten” these lines, minimising their appearance.
  • Fillers are a large, branching molecule, which instantly replaces volume, but also attracts water over the next few weeks, continuing to expand. It must be remembered however that replacing volume in the face is best done slowly, over a period of weeks or months, and that you may not see amazing results after one single treatment. It may take a number of MLs of dermal filler to help you achieve your goals. Get a free consultation from our leading Melbourne cosmetic injectors.
