To understand the ageing process, identify these key facial areas

We have adapted the 8 point lift to provide the foundation for a sophisticated treatment for you.

To determine if you could benefit from this treatment to turn back the clock, use the following 8 point assessment designed to help men and women assess their volume loss.

You may have noticed changes in these 8 areas. Grab a mirror, answer a few quick questions, print this form, and then discuss with your clinician.

Understanding how faces change

As we age, we lose volume across the face and often the first signs can be seen in 8 distinct areas. Looking for facial shadows and depressions can help you identify where this soft tissue under the skin has been lost. Dermal fillers, including those made from naturally occurring sugars, can be used to replace volume at these key points to revolumise youthful curves, enhancing or rejuvenating, for a natural looking result.

1 and 2. Cheek structure -Youthful cheeks are naturally full of volume. This makes them smooth and well defined. As we get older, we start to lose this youthful definition.
Does your cheekbone area look a little flat? (Look in the mirror with your head at a 45-degree angle) *
3. Tear troughs - The circles under the eyes are known as tear troughs. Hollow depressions in this area, and slightly flatter cheeks, can create a tired look even when you feel fine.
Can you see shadows or hollow areas under your eyes? ( Look in the mirror with your head tilted down) *
4. Nasolabial folds - The lines that run from the corner of the nose to the mouth are known as 'nasolabial folds'. As gravity pulls down soft tissue volume in our face over time, these lines gradually deepen.
Can you see the lines that run from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth? (Look at your face in the mirror while remaining expressionless) *
When you smile, do existing lines become deeper? *
5. Mouth frown - Where the corners of the mouth begin to turn downwards is known as a mouth frown.
Has this area become slightly hollow? Do the corners of the mouth turn down slightly? (Look at the corners of your mouth in the mirror) *
Does the skin fold? Do you notice a line here? (Now pinch your skin at the point indicated in the photo) *
6. Pre-jowl area - Fleshiness and lack of definition under the cheeks are known as jowls. The appearance of jowls is another sign of ageing.
Do you notice any heaviness along your jawline? (Look at your chin in the mirror with your head tilting down) *
Can you see development of excess volume? (Now turn your head as much as you can to check your profile) *
7. Jawline - A strong jawline is an uninterrupted line extending from the corner of the jaw to the chin. As we age, jawlines lose definition.
Do you notice any hollowing or unevenness along your jawline? (Look in the mirror with your head tilting down) *
8. Cheek volume - Volume loss in the mid-face can cause the cheeks to appear hollow.
Do you notice a loss of the full curves of the mid face? (Turn your head at a 45-degree angle) *
Do you have any particular areas of concern?
