Dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring substance in the body) used to fill out wrinkles and creases in the skin. They can also be used to increase the volume and definition of the lips and cheeks.
The Goldsmith Clinic offers a variety of temporary fillers, including Restylane and Teosyal® and the next generation Juvéderm® Vycross, all of which are made from hyaluronic acid which is a natural, major component of the skin. They can be used on a variety of areas including on the face and hands.
The eight-point lift is designed to target the cause of wrinkles as opposed to simply filling them or ‘chasing lines’.
In line with Theresa’s holistic approach to therapy, the eight-point lift means looking at the client’s entire face and designing a cosmetic treatment plan, combining dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxation injections, that will rejuvenate the entire facial area to give a balanced and effective end result.
The first three points are along the cheekbone and under the eye area, point four is along the nasal-labial (nose to mouth) folds, point five is under the bottom lip, six and seven are along the jawline and finally point eight is at the front of the ear.
Using the eight-point lift technique enables us to accentuate your best features, or even draw the eye away from others.

Dermal fillers are administered in a series of small injections and the area may be massaged to encourage even distribution to achieve the desired look.
A local anaesthetic may be administered dependent on the area being treated.
Treatment time: 45 minutes
Results: Results are visible immediately and will last from six months to two years depending on the product used for your specific needs.
Downtime: The area may be a little swollen, tender and red for 24 hours. During that time you are advised to avoid coffee, alcohol, hot drinks and the sun.
