Crack the Code

    Crack the Code

    For years, our philosophy at Skin Renewal has been to ensure our patients look like the very best version of themselves.

    We don’t believe in frozen foreheads, and overinflated “trout pouts” aren’t what we do. Instead, our focus is to help those who entrust us with their skin to celebrate every stage of life while ageing with grace. For this reason, we’re excited to announce that we’ve trained our highly-skilled aesthetic doctors in the art of MD Codes™. A new technique, and non-invasive method of using injectables to restore and enhance facial features in a way that looks incredibly natural.

    What are the MD Codes?

    One of the world’s leading plastic surgeons, Dr Mauricio de Maio (MD, ScM, PhD), is an expert in the advanced use of dermal fillers and botulinum toxin. Dr. de Maio is best known as the creator of an innovative technique called the 8-point lift, it restores volume to the face in eight strategic places that create a maximal lift. It was from this ground-breaking technique that the MD Codes™ system was born.

    Put simply, MD Codes™ is a blueprint of a series of injection points for dermal fillers and botulinum toxin based on a deeper understanding of facial anatomy. They don't just treat the symptoms of facial ageing, they target the underlying causes in a way that can even prevent future wrinkles, sagging and volume loss.

    “It is my belief that practitioners need to be more than just injectors. They need to be experts” - Dr. de Maio.

    The MD Code difference When our doctors use the MD Codes™ technique, they’re not just targeting one particular aspect of ageing. Instead, they are treating your face holistically. They realise that certain changes will directly impact the surrounding areas, for better or worse, which is why the codes take your entire face into account, not just the area you’re wanting to improve on.

    For example, in the past, if you wanted to reduce the look of a double chin, standard practice was to reduce the fat in that area. When you’re using the MD Codes™ technique, however, the priority would be to restore the foundation of the jawline which in turn would have a direct impact on the appearance of a double chin, minimising it in a way that's even more effective than simple fat removal because you're targeting the cause and not the symptom.

    The first step is a full face assessment by a doctor, they can then propose a step by step plan, ideally to be completed within a year and thereafter followed by maintenance. Issues are also prioritised by foundation, contouring and refinement so, if you're working with a limited budget, there are "levels" as to what you can do and the codes ensure you address what's most impactful first.

    The bottom line If you’re wanting to learn more about the MD Codes™ and how they can be used to help you create the very best version of you, make an appointment to chat to one of our doctors at Skin Renewal. They’ve all undergone extensive MD Codes™ training and can use the technique to help you look and feel like the very best version of yourself, nobody else.
