The MD Codes™ Approach

At Beauty Within, we use many different approaches and techniques to provide optimal results that appear natural and last. Among the latest and most innovative treatment approaches, we employ a technique known as MD Codes™.

The MD Codes™ technique is a concept developed by the internationally renowned Brazilian plastic surgeon Dr. Mauricio De Maio. This technique has transformed the way cosmetic injectables such as Juvederm® and Botox® Cosmetic are used in aesthetic medicine.

The MD Codes™ are a collection of precise and strategic injection sites. The sites are based on the anatomy and physiology of the face, which allows for a minimal volume of filler to obtain maximum lift and volumization of the face.

Each area of the face consists of specific codes that tell us the volume required to improve this area, the safest way for it to be injected, the method, and the type of change possible to be obtained from each injection.

Taking into account the patient’s treatment objectives, areas of concern, pattern of ageing and anatomy, we can use the MD Codes™ formulas to calculate the exact method and filler volume required to reach the desired result.

“An attractive young person is an accident of nature, an attractive older person is a work of art.”

Historically, unnatural results have arisen out of “chasing” the lines and folds that typically concern patients. These are referred to as “distractors” as they distract the patient from the real cause - the volume loss and the tissues decent due to aging or genetic factors.

The MD Codes™ technnique is a precise, methodical and strategic approach to analyzing and treating a patient’s face. Instead of focusing directly on the problem areas, we target the source/cause of the issues through a series of precise injection points on the face.

Non-surgical rejuvenation of the face has evolved from the simple removal of a single crease or wrinkle, to our ability to change the negative messages of facial expression conveyed by the natural ageing process or by poor genetics.

Rejuvenating the face is like building a house. We first build the “FOUNDATION” which supports the house, then we begin to frame the house by providing symmetry, balance and “CONTOUR”. Finally, we address the distractions which can be considered the wallpaper and paint (lips, lines and around the eyes) - known as “REFINEMENT”.

Dr. Maria Tetelbaum and Amanda Cook RN have attended years (since 2017) of invite-only meetings and trainings with Dr. Mauricio De Maio (creator of MD Codes™), refining their skill in applying the MD Codes™ technique.

Dr. Maria Tetelbaum recently attended a very exclusive, invite-only session with the one and only Dr. Mauricio De Maio, creator of the MD Codes™ technique.

This session (hosted by Allergan/ Abbvie Aesthetics) included a hand-picked selection of the top injectors in the country.

Dr. Tetelbaum has been selected to be a high level mentor/ trainer within the field, specifically employing the MD Codes™ technique. This is a great honour and of great benefit to our clinic and patients of Beauty Within.
