What is the MD Codes™ Strategy?

One of the most innovative filler strategies utilizing dermal fillers that we use at Skinspirations is called MD Codes™. It was recently developed by Brazilian plastic surgeon, Mauricio De Maio after more than twenty years of experience, and it provides a methodical, holistic approach to optimizing facial shape.

Rather than only filling lines and folds with injectable fillers, MD Codes™ addresses the underlying frame of the face to produce 360-degree improvement. Facial volume can be deficient in different areas either due to facial aging or genetic development. The 75 MD Codes™ signify 75 potential facial injection points, taking into account the underlying bone, fat compartments, nerves, and vascular structures. Each of these sites corresponds to areas where fat or bone may be deficient.

The MD Codes™ Consultation

An MD Codes™ consultation focuses on your goals so it starts with a careful assessment that includes our reviewing photos from the front and sides of your face. Most people see themselves in a mirror from the front only and are often surprised by how different their profile appears.

We then discuss different filler strategy options that will help you reach your appearance goals. For most people, we’ll recommend several treatment sessions to get the maximum improvement, starting with the areas where filler will give the most visible results.

Don’t be afraid to discuss your budget during our consultations because our goal is to help you get as much improvement as possible with what you want to spend.
