The MD Codes ™ were developed by Dr. de Maio after over 20 years of clinical experience. The MD Codes™ are a system presented in a simple, straightforward and friendly way to guide the use of injectables in medical aesthetics.
The MD Codes ™ originated from the 8-point lift, which was a technique firstly introduced by Dr. de Maio in 2010. It was the first time that filler treatments were developed to strategically combine different injection sites to achieve direct and indirect effects by giving volume and structure to the face. The objective was to achieve a non-surgical facelift without scars and downtime.
Conceived in 2015, the MD Codes™ are a series of precise sites that were created to guide injections on the face. They consist of a variable number of injection sites divided into anatomical areas.
Jointly with the MD Codes™, Dr. de Maio also introduced the concept of the emotional attributes. Instead of treating just areas, Dr. de Maio asks the patients to identify what they are willing to achieve as a message of the face.
