8 Point Face Lift – MD Codes™
Facial enhancement and rejuvenation have moved beyond wrinkle treatment and surgical facelifts to an approach that volumises and structures.
This comprehensive, multimodel approach permits clinicians to develop aesthetic treatment plans tailored to individual patient needs and designed to produce a natural look.
The 8-Point lift is a new approach, utilising the new Juvéderm VYCROSS® collection of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation and shaping. The procedure, known as the MD Codes™, developed my Dr Maurcio De Maio, is delivered in 8 distinct treatment areas to achieve the most natural result and maintain each patient’s unique facial expressions.
Treatment is individualised to each patient using the Juvéderm Vobella with lidocaine, Juvéderm Volift with lidocaine and Juvéderm Voluma with lidocaine.
The procedure entails a sequence of injections at specific sites, based on each patients profile to achieve the optimal outcome.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the MD Codes™?
The MD Codes™ are a series of precise injection points which instead of treating the problem area, focus on treating the cause of the issue. Dr Maurcio De Maio recognised that by treating holistically, patients benefit far greater and receive the optimum results from their treatment. Results are long-lasting, effective and natural-looking.
What ares will be treated?
Dermal fillers can be used extensively across the face for rejuvenation and volume. The main areas of focus are the temples, the brow, cheeks, under eye, chin, jawline and lips.
Why the MD CODES?
In the past, injection methods were rather ad hoc, and instead of treating with purpose, injectors were frequently treating as they saw fit on the day.
The MD Codes™ allow for bespoke, tailor-made treatment still; however, they add a formulated structure to injecting, meaning results are far more superior, and facial anatomy and facial proportions are taken into consideration.
Unlike traditional methods where the problem area was treated directly, the MD Codes™, including the 8 Point Lift which had been previously introduced, take on a holistic approach to injecting. Instead of adding weight and volume to the issue, the Codes target the source of the problem, greatly benefiting the patient.
Who will carry out this procedure?
All facial injections using the MD Codes™ and 8-Point lift are carried out by Dr Ravi Suryavansi, who has over 15 years experience and has undergone extensive masterclass training with Allergan and Dr Maurcio De Maio.
When will I see the results?
Results can be seen immediately with dermal fillers and you will see the effects taking place during the course of the treatment.
How long will it last?
The Juvéderm VYCROSS® range of fillers can last from 12 to 18 months.
Are there any risks?
Like any injections there are always risks of possible swelling and bruising. All risks and complications are discussed during the consultation appointment.
