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.
