MD Codes® Facial Enhancement
MD Codes™ is an advanced filler injection technique which addresses some of the main concerns patients have with ageing. This includes skin laxity, apparent sagging, volume loss, as well as lack of structure and contour. As we age, these factors become more prominent, which can make us look tired and aged.
Thankfully, these issues are easily treatable with natural, hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers that work to reapply structure, elevating connective tissue and rejuvenating the facial features. Often used in conjunction with botulinum toxin, they help to prevent you from overworking your muscles, deepening and creating lines and wrinkles.
Traditionally, dermal filler treatments treated only the problem area. However, clinical studies and research suggest that a holistic approach is much more beneficial for patients, treating the source of the issue itself, rather than just masking the symptoms.
MD Codes™ are a series of strategic, formulated injection points, which allow for a subtle and natural-looking result. The MD Codes™ technique was developed by Dr Mauricio de Maio, a world-renowned Brazilian plastic surgeon and injector. Unlike traditional injection techniques, MD Codes™ do not offer results that are temporary but strive to find the most effective solution to an individual’s problems. MD Codes™ are a useful tool that help patients understand their motivation for seeking treatment and in crafting the ideal treatment plan. When presented with the MD Codes™, patients can identify their problematic areas, discuss their treatment and what can be achieved.
The MD Codes™ are a useful tool, which Dr. Vicki of VIDASKIN has adopted to help her patients achieve outstanding and natural results. In fact, Dr. Vicki is the first and only Doctor from Singapore who has ever been handpicked by Dr. Mauricio de Maio himself, to study under him in a 2 year mentorship program, where only the best physicians from around the world are selected.

Technique – A deepened understanding of facial anatomy, coupled with extensive training and an eye for beauty, balance and harmony, enables our doctor to present a precise approach to analyse and treat our patients’ faces.
Products – The products that we use are the VYCROSS® Collection which are manufactured using Allergan’s proprietary VYCROSS technology – cross-linking the hyaluronic acid molecules to create a smoother, more efficient filler that allows for a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid to be used. Many hyaluronic acid fillers use 100% high molecular weight, while the VYCROSS Collection uses 10% high molecular weight HA with 90% low molecular weight HA, creating a smoother filler with smoother results. A smoother filler means that our patients are less likely to experience pain and swelling/after treatment, and results are long-lasting and natural.
Customisation – The assessment and delivery of the procedure is a bespoke treatment that depends on an individual’s features, aspirations and needs. It takes someone with extensive training and an artistic eye to propose, and deliver exceptionally beautiful yet natural looking results.
The hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers that we use at VIDASKIN provide longevity, without permanency. This enables you to stay in control of your looks, and if ever necessary, the results can be reversed, as hyaluronic acid is fully dissolvable, unlike other filler materials in the market.
On average, your dermal filler should last between 12-24 months, but this varies from patient to patient, depending on how quickly your immune system breaks the filler down. Two weeks after the treatment, you should notice the lasting effect of your fillers. Treatment is a maintenance programme, however, and you will need to have treatment at regular intervals for longer-lasting results.
There are few contraindications to having dermal filler treatment. While we advise that those who are pregnant or breastfeeding avoid treatment, there is no clinical data to prove that it is harmful to the mother or baby.
