MD are Medical Codes which is a Methodological approach to facial filler treatments with Liquid HA which is a  facial rejuvenation technique, that has transformed the way dermal fillers are injected. It is a step by step technique designed to elevate your face through non-surgical means by predefining injection points. They are used to curb ageing factors such as sagginess in the face.

Correction of lines and folds (wanting to look less sad or addressing unfavourable emotional parts of the face).

Dr Mauricio de Maio originally developed the 8 Point Lift after identifying 8 key areas for treatment. He has subsequently developed the MD Codes in 2015. The MD Codes are predefined and precise sites on the face where dermal fillers can be injected for optimal, natural results.

How long does MD Codes last?
How long will the results last? Depending on the patient and treated area, the results can last from 12-18 months.

Each code:

  • The target depth of injection
  • Proper delivery tool (needle or cannula)
  • Delivery technique, eg, aliquot,bolus, linear, fanning)
  • The minimum product volume recommend to achieve visible, time and time results
  • During consultation planing the appropriate MD codes are selected using all the algorithms focused on lessening unfavourable facial attributes, ie, s saggy, tired, sad, angry looks. And enhancing positive attributes, ie, attractive, younger, more contoured or masculine look.

    Q) Why is this different to putting HA into lines and folds?

    A) increase patients satisfaction by going beyond treatment lines and folds and to focus on reducing unfavourable facial attributes.

The 8-point face lift uses advanced HA Liquid to restore volume but to lift the tissues and structure of the face to produce a more youthful profile.

RHINOPLASTY – smooths out small bumps in your nose, makes the tip of your nose more prominent, add volume or lift the tip of your nose.

TEAR TROUGH –  is perfect for those with tired looking eyes, dark circles, hollows or deep grooves below your eyes.  This treatment also helps support the delicate skin below the eyes.

CHEEK AUGMENTATION  – is a highly effective treatment not only to enhance the cheek bones but also to lift the skin and reduce facial lines and sagging.  If you want higher cheek bone or better definition of you face, this treatment can create amazing results.  Or if you just want you face tightening this can be done. Cheek augmentation can be used to simply lift the skin and reduce the heaviness that develops around the mouth and cheeks. It is also a perfect way to reduce smile lines and to stop them from getting worse. This is also good to help reduce a tired facial appearance and to reduce a dark or hollow under eyes.

NASOLABIAL SMILE LINES – lines from the corner of the nose almost to the corner of the mouth. These lines are most severe on smiling but when they begin to be visible at rest it is a good time to start addressing them.

MARIONETTE LINES – extend from the corners of the mouth downwards and can contribute to a downward smile giving a saddened appearance. These lines can also occasionally be so deep that the corners of the mouth get sore all the time from saliva collecting there. Strengthening of the marionette lines with dermal filler provides better shape and support of the lips and also the lower face.

CHIN FILLER-  treatments are used to treat a variety of issues around the chin area. If you feel your chin is too pointy or even too pronounced we can help to recontour the areas around the chin and create a chin that is more harmonious with the face and less obtrusive. If you feel your chin is set back and your profile could do with improving then we can bring your chin forward to create the ideal facial profile. If your face is too round or your lower face is too short we can create a longer more youthful face for you. If you don’t like your chin dimples and creases we can erase them for you. If the skin texture over your chin is not as supple and smooth as it used to be, the chin filler treatments can also help to resolve these issues.

JAW LINE AUGMENTATION – is a great treatment to define the jaw line.  For woman it is great to create a more uplifting jaw and better defined jaws reducing saggy skin. For men, jaw augmentation can be used to reduce saggy skin or if required to create a more masculine jaw.



Prohilo Award

Your face is the first thing that people notice about you. But when your appearance no longer reflects the way you feel on the inside, it may be time for a change.

In time, your skin loses it’s full, firm, youthful appearance. This is the result of the natural ageing process. Over time, your skin becomes thinner or loses its natural elasticity. As a result, it becomes loose and starts to wrinkle 

The prospect of treating sagging skin and wrinkles without long incisions and downtime, i.e. with no recovery period, has great appeal to the majority of patients who are looking for subtle improvements or are not ready for a traditional facelift. The new and effective anti-ageing skin care beauty treatment for younger looking skin is Profhilo®.

Profhilo® (Skin stimulator) counteracts skin laxity via reconstructing action of collagen and elastin fibres of the dermal matrix. It contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid and is being marketed as being useful in the treatment of skin laxity.

The unique characteristics of remodelling skin laxity is easily obtained in only two sessions at our clinic, with a one-month interval. Profhilo is used for the treatment of skin laxity of the face. This breaking new technology does miracles for your saggy skin. This anti-ageing treatment is almost painless.

Procedure –  takes about 20 minutes to complete. It is injected in the superficial subcutaneous layer. The technique used for Profhilo injections is known as BIO AESTHETIC POINTS (BAP). In this technique, the 5 Points injection site are marked for each side of the face and then Prophilo is carefully injected at these sites. This BAP technique is created for the lower third of the face due to its predisposition to dermal atrophy caused by the aging process. It promotes the production of collagen and elastin underneath the skin which gives the skin a more youthful texture.

NOTE: Profhilo is the first stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) based product which is manufactured without the use of Chemical crossed-linking agents (BDDE) and is used for skin remodelling and treating skin laxity, not for just filling lines and wrinkles. According to the makers, it delivers dramatic improvement in tissue quality, even in challenging areas, and is complimentary to other aesthetic treatments and derma filler procedures.

Risk and complications – Profhilo is safe when performed by an fully trained and qualified Aesthetic  practitioner . The risk/complications are rare by these injections which may include the followings:

  • The common risks are: temporary redness or bruising, swelling, pain.
  • The rare risks are: infection, skin discolouration, bumps and nodules.

Downtime and recovery –  Profhilo causes very minimal sensation and discomfort during the procedure. It has no downtime and recovery period because it is also a non-surgical procedure like other fillers. You can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment, however you should try to avoid the sun for the rest of the day and also it is advisable to avoid massaging the treated areas, or exercise and sauna.

Results – Patients can expect increased firmness, smoothness, elasticity and an overall improved quality of the skin by improving laxity of the tissue. Results can be seen between 1 week to 1 month and the effect lasts up to six months. Successful results depend on health or age of the skin, quality of product used as well as the correct placement of the product. To get the desirable results, the treatment should be performed with one month interval, depending on the level of ageing.  If the procedure is not repeated, the skin will gradually return to its pre-treatment condition.  Touch-ups and maintenance treatments can then be prescribed by your Aesthetic Practitioner according to your body’s response to the treatment.

Questions & Answers

What is HA?  HA stands fro Hyaluronic acid which are injectable products that depending on the area you want treated can be used to correct/restore loss of volume, plump, lift, fill or sculpt.

What is the difference between a ‘Filler’, and ‘Anti-Wrinkle Injections’?  Anti-Wrinkle Injections does not plump up facial lines or creases like a filler.  Fillers help to fill in the valleys that cause larger lines or creases. Instead, Anti-Wrinkle Injections temporarily paralyses muscle movement to soften or freeze the action of muscles that create these unwanted creases and wrinkles.  Anti-Wrinkle injections can soften lines or creases.

What is Filler?  Filler is a collection of multiple hyaluronic acid product.  Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your body.  Different Fillers can add volume, lift, and sculpt different areas of the face depending on your desired outcome.

Is there any downtime?  Most dermal fillers do require a little bit of downtime due to possible swelling and bruising. Depending on area and availability to cover with makeup. Downtime can be anywhere from 24 hours to a few days, however, when you have to Cannula there isn’t really much downtime or hardly any bruising.

What are the results?  Results are subtle, natural and long-lasting. Dermal Fillers lift smooth lines. Correct, fill and define your appearance to enhance your own natural looks.

What to expect after having Facial Filler?    After having filler you may feel slightly sensitive in the area, you may see swelling, and redness where your injection was inserted. Within an hour or two, the injection should start to settle.   The redness should start to subside, and you’ll be able to better see your desired results.  Results should be fully visible within a week or two. Redness or bruising should completely subside by then.  Filler can last anywhere between 6 months to 3 years.

What to do if something doesn’t feel right after having filler?  If there is anything really really painful after a few hours the you should let us know by calling 07809905869 or via social media as we would need to check this.  You can also do a little test at home by putting pressure with you index finger onto the painful area whilst looking in the mirror, then let go, if there area comes back pink you are ok, however, if the area goes white you need to contact us to rectify any complications which we are trained to do.  This could happen to the very best of the best its just one of those things that could happen.
