The appearance of the face and skin can change over time as the effects of ageing start to emerge.
Facial contouring at Dr. SW Clinics entails a non-surgical procedure known as the 8-point face-lift, which aims to restore a youthful look. This treatment considers the entire facial profile when deciding which areas need to be addressed, usually the mid to lower face.
The procedure is designed to enhance the natural contours of the face, providing a more sculpted and defined appearance. It involves various techniques and treatments to modify and balance the facial features.

How does it work?
Lines and wrinkles, loose skin and volume loss typically develop as a result of lost collagen and elastin. A tired appearance is often the result, which can easily be refreshed by lifting and volumising the skin. Your individual concerns will be assessed at a pre-treatment consultation, after which, a personalised treatment plan will be put in place.
A series of non-invasive treatments usually make up the facial contouring procedure, which includes a combination of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections.
Dermal fillers contain a hyaluronic acid gel that is administered beneath the skin. This product may be applied to areas around the cheeks / cheekbones, jawline, corners of the mouth and from nose to mouth. A higher density of filler may be used in these areas to provide a greater level of support to the internal structure. As well as creating a smoother texture, adding volume can help to firm the skin so it appears tighter and more lifted.
Applying anti-wrinkle injections advances the results of this treatment as the upper face also receives attention. Facial movement is mainly responsible for the wrinkles that form on the forehead and around the eyes, concerns which respond more effectively to this type of approach. Facial contouring can rejuvenate the look of the entire face, for a youthful and rested look.

Facial contouring works by restoring lost volume on the skin. Specific places around the mid and lower face are considered for treatment, which helps to lift the skin when dermal fillers create a firmer, fuller structure. A youthful complexion is also down to a smoother, more hydrated texture.
Dermal fillers are found to be suitable for use on many people and are popular with adults of all ages. Facial contouring in particular may be of interest to adults in their 40’s or 50’s who find that their skin is loose and is impacting the natural contours of the mid and lower face.
The application of an injection can cause a mild stinging or scratching sensation as it is inserted into the skin. Dr. SW Clinics makes all treatments and procedures as comfortable as possible, and facial contouring uses a numbing cream (applied 20 – 30 minutes beforehand) to minimise any potential discomfort.
As facial contouring addresses more than one area in the same treatment, you may find the whole process takes around 1 hour.
The face may feel tender for the first few hours after the procedure. You may feel it is OK to return to work immediately after the treatment, or you may wish to wait until the next day. Typically, dermal fillers don’t often stop you from continuing with your usual daily tasks; however you may need to keep activity levels low and avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours.
The results of the facial contouring treatment are often visible immediately after treatment. The skin will appear instantly volumised, which also works to create a firmer looking complexion that is more even in texture. Dermal fillers often dissolve in around 12 months, and repeating the procedure will maintain longer-term results.
