Ultrasound Fundamentals for the Aesthetic Injector

Safer Injections Through Technology

Inject more confidently by seeing the anatomy below the skin. Ultrasound helps you visualize the anatomy of your patient, guiding you to safer injections and better results.

Ways Ultrasound Can Change Your Injectable Practice

  • Evaluate the vascularity of the face prior to injections to improve safety and efficacy of fillers;
  • Get better measurements of skin and fat prior to treatment for more objective results;
  • Evaluate filler complications and composition rather than relying on educated guesses.

Ultrasound Fundamentals for the Aesthetic Injector has been approved for 7.5 hours of CME credit.

Ultrasound Fundamentals for the Aesthetic Injector is approved for 7.5 CME hours for physicians, physician assistants, advanced practice registered nurses and nurses.

Target Audience

The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of physicians, radiologists, nurses, APRNs, PAs, and other professionals involved in the care of patients searching for non-invasive medical aesthetic treatments.

Statement of Need/Program Overview

Medical aesthetic professionals in the medical aesthetic field have demonstrated a high desire for in-depth technique discussions as a matter of providing updated techniques and procedures and implementing them in safe practices. Medical aesthetic professionals have asked for technique sessions describing the latest advances in the nonsurgical treatments to help them achieve higher standards and better results for their patients, as well as increasing safety and accuracy of injections.

Educational Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Explain the science of ultrasound.
  • Define the terminology used in ultrasound imaging.
  • Explain how to operate the settings on an ultrasound device to optimize images of the targeted tissues.
  • Identify anatomic structures in the face using ultrasound – fat, muscle, vessels, bone, fascia.
  • Distinguish between arteries and veins with ultrasound.
  • Review the skills necessary to mitigate filler complications using guided injections of hyaluronidase which include nodules, granulomas, and delayed-onset nodules.
