A hugely popular treatment, the 8 Point Face Lift is a fantastic alternative to surgery. It can enhance the appearance of premature ageing on the face, particularly around the cheek and eye areas, where the skin can droop and look hollow.
At Omniya, we combine both Dermal Fillers and Anti-Wrinkle Injections to gently lift and re-contour the face, reducing nose-mouth lines, marionette lines, the appearance of jowls, dark shadows and hollow cheeks.
This treatment targets the following:
The ultimate goal of a facelift is to reshape the face, providing a more youthful appearance, and to tighten the loose, hanging skin. Further benefits of a facelift include remove deep creases around the mouth and nose, and excess hanging skin and fat under the chin and neck.
Whilst surgery is an option, here we explore the minimally invasive options for those patients who prefer to look at alternative solutions to their presenting concerns, which they may deem as requiring a ‘facelift’.
These minimally invasive (and non-surgical) options for a facelift range from dermal fillers to leading technology based treatments.
Dermal Fillers: one solution is working on the Phi Principle (the mathematical principles of Phi, also known as The Golden Ratio), which involves the precise distancing of the features of an object to make it beautiful. This ‘facelift’ creates the symmetrical face that many patients seek. For this treatment, areas of the face are injected with dermal filler to produce a natural looking facelift, requiring no invasive surgery and with minimal downtime.
Ultrasound: Ultrasound energy is fired deep under the skin into the SMAS, these are the muscle that surgeons tighten when doing a facelift. The ultrasound stimulates the growth of new collagen over time, so it strengthens and tones the skin from within to make it look smoother and brighter on the outside and his can in turn result in a redefined face shape with tightened skin appearing as a facelift.
ULTRASOUND-THERAPY HIFU FACELIFT IN LONDON
HIFU stands for high intensity focused ultrasound and is an innovative, painless and non-invasive way of reducing wrinkles and the results last up to two years. Additional applications include face and brow lifting which is some cases is all that is needed to create a facelift. HIFU will tighten of the connective tissue and highly concentrated ultrasound waves penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. You will see a slight improvement straight after the treatment, however the final facelift results will appear 3 to 6 months later.
This non-surgical facelift has no downtime which becomes attractive to patients with a busy schedule. The highly focused ultrasound activates and accelerates the body’s own healing process in the face, neck and décolletage areas and thereby helps sagging skin to tighten itself and become firmer. This method requires no creams, no artificial filler products or toxins. It relies solely on the body’s natural regenerative capacity. Since the treatment targets deeper layers, the surface of the skin is not affected. After the treatment, you can simply go about your usual activities.
The Ultrasound Therapy procedure stimulates collagen production via a targeted input of ultrasound energy into the deep tissue layers of the skin. This warms the tissue, which in turn triggers a natural skin response that initiates a regenerative process through the production of neo-collagen resulting in a facelift.
Lasers generally target the uppermost layers of the skin (e.g., to counteract fine lines, wrinkles, and changes in pigmentation). The Ultrasound Therapy HIFU procedure bypasses the skin’s surface and focuses entirely on the deep, structural layers of the skin where collagen is deposited.
Cryotherapy and Cryolipolysis: Typically associated with treating pain and alleviating recovery, cryotherapy has been adopted to the cosmetic industry for numerous benefits, including weight loss and fat reduction. Cryolipolisis technology freezes those unwanted fat deposits beneath the skin, which are then processed and flushed out by your body. Coupled with a healthy diet and exercise, effective results can be seen. Targeting the excess fatty tissue
Mesotherapy: This treatment involves the injection of a bespoke mixture of amino acids, medication and vitamins. The formula is inserted just under the skin, with the cause to plump and rehydrate the skin tissue, softening the lines.

How does it work?
As we age our faces begin to sag, giving an aged appearance along with telltale signs, such as wrinkles and loss of definition. By administering a variety of injectable treatments to the face, we are able to restore structure that has been lost and relax wrinkles, leaving the face looking uplifted, youthful and energised.
What does the procedure involve?
After your initial consultation, and having been given the option of application of topical anaesthetic, your practitioner will advise the best areas to apply volume and relax muscles.
Your practitioner will then administer small injections on different areas of the face, which will depend on your individual requirements.
What is the result?
After the treatment you can expect a noticeably lifted and rejuvenated appearance.
Are there any risks or side effects?
A slight burning sensation whilst the injections are administered is normal with this treatment, however, the sensation should pass very quickly.
For further information on risks and side effects of this treatment, we recommend booking a consultation with one of our practitioners, who will be able to provide more information.
