MD Codes™: The Gold Standard in Facial Rejuvenation

As we age, our facial features tend to lose volume and definition, resulting in the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. These changes are primarily due to the natural fat pads that provide shape to our faces shrinking and shifting over time, resulting in a loss of fullness. This can cause some individuals to have a sad, tired, or even angry facial expression, which can be disheartening. While there are several options available for addressing these concerns, the MD Code approach is quickly becoming the gold standard for non-surgical facial rejuvenation.

Emotional Attributes

Our emotions are often conveyed through facial expressions such as a smile, frown, or grimace, which can elicit a response from others. However, when our facial expressions do not accurately reflect our true feelings, it can lead to confusion. For instance, a patient’s face may appear tired or sad despite not feeling that way. MD Codes™ is a comprehensive and advanced approach to facial rejuvenation that takes into account the emotional messages conveyed by the face. Developed by Dr. Mauricio De Maio, a globally renowned Plastic Surgeon and Aesthetic Clinician, this technique aims to restructure the face by targeting the root cause of skin aging, rather than just its symptoms.

The main idea is to know which points to target according to a patient’s main concerns (emotional attributes):

  • Appear less relaxed
  • Look less sad
  • Appear less tired
  • Appear less severe
  • Appear thinner
  • look younger
  • Appear more feminine

How does the MD Code approach work?

According to Dermatology Times, the MD Codes ™ technique involves dividing the face into multiple injection points that impact various areas including the temples, forehead, brows, cheeks, under-eye region, nasolabial area, marionette lines, jawline, lips, and chin. So rather than simply eliminating this line or that wrinkle, Practitioners identify precise injection points on the face through mapping to ensure more precise and comprehensive results. This all-inclusive approach makes results more consistent and more reliable, and this leads to happier outcomes.

What are the benefits of the MD Code approach?

One of the main benefits of MD Codes™ is that it is a holistic approach to facial rejuvenation. By carefully injecting fillers such as Botox or Juvéderm into precise points on the face, the MD Code methodology can help lift, contour, and rejuvenate the face to ensure a more natural and balanced facial contour. If done correctly, no one will ask if you’ve had work done. This approach not only improves safety compared to traditional filler procedures, but also specifically targets the root cause to create a more youthful and refreshed appearance without the risks, downtime, and expense associated with surgical procedures. The treatment is minimally invasive, with most patients experiencing only mild discomfort and little to no recovery time. Results are noticeable immediately and can last for up to 18 months, making it a popular choice for those who want to look and feel their best without committing to more invasive procedures. Additionally, the MD Code approach is highly customizable and can be tailored to each patient’s unique facial features and concerns.

At Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic, our practitioners have adopted this holistic view when treating the face. Specific areas can also be treated if a patient presents a certain concern. Using MD Codes™, we can treat:

  • Cheeks (especially when they start to wrinkle and lose volume or sag)
  • The area around the jawline, including the lips and chin
  • Temples and forehead
  • Smile and frown lines (nasolabial folds or marionette lines)
  • Wrinkles and lines around the eyelids and eyes

Who is a good candidate for the MD Code approach?

The MD Code approach is suitable for a wide range of patients who are looking to improve the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. MD Codes is a cutting-edge approach to non-surgical facial rejuvenation that can provide significant volume and contouring improvements without the need for surgery. By restoring support and volume to key areas of the face, the MD Code approach can take years off your face.
