When the 8-point lift was first introduced by Dr. Mauricio de Maio over 10 years ago, it was the start of using injectable fillers to promote a lifting effect. From that time on, more and more injectors understood the potential of fillers and started injecting in different areas.
What happened next? Loads of unnatural results popped up everywhere, most exploited by the media who published celebrities looking more like caricatures than real people.
The fact was that there was no clear guidance on how injectable fillers could be used beyond the treatment of lines. There was a need for a systematic approach, and after over 20 years of clinical practice, Dr. de Maio introduced the MD Codes™. The MD Codes™provide injectors with specific guidelines on how to achieve natural results with safety.
