MD Codes is a scientific, specialised approach to using dermal filler to achieve subtle, natural looking results brought to Australia by Dr Mauricio de Maio (Key opinion leader and consultant for Allergan, the supplier of Premium Quality Dermal Fillers and Anti-Wrinkle Injections). It is designed to consider the emotional attributes of each patient such as looking tired, sad, saggy, angry etc.
Each MD Code includes information about the target depth of injection, the proper delivery tool and delivery technique used to enhancing positive facial attributes.
The MD Code will provide the technique for facial reshaping by lifting (#liftit) and volumizing the cheeks, sculpting (#sculptit) the lower face (jawline and chin) to achieve a fresher look. Tear trough, lips and temples can also be treated in a very systematic and concise way. This allows for very consistent and reliable results.
Each patient receives a total face consultation with Dr. Shobhna Singh during which:
- A detailed medical and cosmetic history is taken.
- Detailed history of patients cosmetic concerns are noted
- Analysis of the facial thirds is conducted
- Plan for systematic treatment is created
Who Created MD Codes
Md Codes were created by Dr Mauricio De Maio, a leading globally-reknown Plastic Surgeon from Brazil who specializes in advanced treatments using dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injectables.
Dr de Maio educates and mentors, colleagues worldwide. He provides regular training to members of the Allergan Medical Institute (AMI). The AMI faculty members then provide ongoing training to other doctors/nurses.
What are MD Codes
The MD Codes is an injection guide of very precise sites, represented by letters and numbers. The letters represent the anatomical site such as ‘Ck’ for cheeks, and the numbers represent the units in the anatomical area. For example “CK1= zygomatic arch”
Every patient will have a specific sequence, but may not need all the MD codes.
Each patient is assessed and treated individually.
Why The MD Codes
The MD Codes are designed to help patients understand their treatment motivations. The MD Codes, when used by the injector can help a patient to understand why the improvement of a target area can be achieved.
MD Codes provide a universal symbolic language for reducing variability in injection technique. The platform provides user-friendly algorithms to help clinicians increase patient satisfaction by going beyond treatment of lines and folds and to focus on reducing unfavourable facial attributes.
The MD Codes can also be used for financial planning of treatments as well as follow up reviews.
What areas do they address
Dermal Fillers are used for Facial rejuvenation. There are specific MD Codes for treating all key areas of the face such as Cheeks, Under Eyes, Brow, Chin, Temple, Lips and the Jawline. Generally to achieve the best results, the mid face is treated first if necessary.
MD Codes for treatment of the Mid Face are known as the foundation codes. With advanced treatment techniques, natural looking results are achievable.
What Products Are Used
At Nitai, we only used, premium brands of dermal fillers that have undergone robust development and rigorous testing to ensure they are safe for use as determined by the TGA. Furthermore, the most appropriate dermal fillers are selected for each treatment area based on the intrinsic quality of the dermal filler.
For example, a durable, robust dermal filler is required to achieve volume in the cheek, lip enhancement requires dermal fillers that are silkier and refined. Similarly, under eye treatment requires dermal fillers that are malleable.

More About MD Codes
The MD Codes is a precise guide for injecting dermal fillers. The type of filler, volume and location of the injections are documented and taught in such a way to achieve consistent, reliable and outstanding results.
The MD Code Ck4 is one of Dr Shobhna’s favourite areas to treat and is often under treated in most patients. This area sits under the cheek bones and in front of the ear. There is loss of fat pads with age and more extreme in lean patients. More Details->
The lower face consists of the MD Codes™ for chin, jawline, lips, nasolabial fold and marionette lines. The chin and jawline codes are responsible for the facial shape and therefore are the contouring codes. More Details->

✨ The MD Codes™ are a collection of injection points to guide aesthetic treatments with hyaluronic acid fillers. It provides a systematization of injectable procedures and make treatment results safer and more consistent. 🔵 The MD Codes™ were created to enable facial restructuring and may be considered an alternative to surgery by means of non-surgical and reversible injectable procedures. They are based on the principle that the face units and subunits have to be rebuilt or treated in order to restore volume and structure lost due to the ageing process. 🔴 The MD Codes™ were developed by Dr. Mauricio de Maio after over 20 years of clinical experience. (Adapted from Post by Dr Mauricio de Maio, a plastic surgeon, creator of the MD Codes ™, expert in training courses and advanced usage of Injectable Fillers and Botulinum Toxin.) Dr Shobhna from Nitai Medical & Cosmetic Centre is Trained in the Application of MD Codes and herself is an Allergan Medical Institute Trainer. Her role is to train other Doctors/Nurses in Aust/NZ in use of MD Codes. #mauriciodemaio #allergan #mdcodes #beauty #beautydecoded #injectablefillers #fillers #facialaesthetics #dermalfillers #facefillers #injector #melbournelife #melbournecity #melbournetodo #lipfillers #injectables #antiaging #antiwrinkleinjections #cosmetics #beautiful #medspa #facials #wrinkles #filler #cosmetic #instabeauty #skincare #skin

Why have you not achieved the best version of yourself? 🤔 There are 4⃣ reasons that may downgrade your appearance according to the concept known as the “emotional attributes”. The four negative attributes include: the tired look, the angry look, the sad look and the saggy appearance. These negative messages are considered- “the reality” - and need to be addressed with priority in facial treatments. ✅ The rule is to always clean the house first! That means we need to try to erase or weaken the unfavourable messages of the face as much as possible. By reducing them, the positive messages will progressively appear. ✨ If you have one or more “realities” tell your injector how you feel and take action! 👩⚕👨⚕💉 (Adapted from Post by Dr Mauricio de Maio) Dr Shobhna is Trained in the Application of MD Codes and herself is an Allergan Medical Institute Trainer.

Most women reject lip treatments with fillers because of so many unnatural results that are displayed in the media. 👄 A clear understanding of “what to do” with lips is necessary to cross this barrier. Let us discuss lip fullness. With time, lips tend to become flatter and thinner and the best solution to bring back the lip youthfulness is to inject hyaluronic acid. 💋 To create lip fullness with the MD Codes™, Lp1 and Lp6 codes must be injected. ➡ Lp1 is located in the upper and lower vermillion body (red part of the lip) and ➡ Lp6 is in the oral commissure (lip corner). The injection technique starts in Lp1 in the upper lip and then Lp1 in the lower lip. Once the proper volume is delivered, Lp6 can be addressed. Our Premium Grade Lip Filler should be injected into the lip vermillion body using cannula with linear technique. Anterograde approach will control pain. Lp1 promotes lip augmentation and eversion while Lp6 improves the downturn of the oral commissures. If you believe you would benefit from Lp1 and Lp6, let your injector know! 💉✨ .(Adapted from Post by Dr Mauricio de Maio, a plastic surgeon, creator of the MD Codes ™, expert in training courses and advanced usage of Injectable Fillers and Botulinum Toxin.)
