Ultrasound Fundamentals for the Aesthetic Injector

Register Today!

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 is approved for 7.5 CME hours for physicians, physician assistants, advanced practice registered nurses and nurses.

Program Overview

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, radiologists, nurses, APRNs, PAs, and other professionals involved in the care of patients searching for non-invasive medical aesthetic treatments.

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.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of the educational activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Explain the science of ultrasound
  2. Define the terminology used in ultrasound imaging
  3. Operate the settings on an ultrasound device to optimize images of the targeted tissues
  4. Identify anatomic structures in the face using ultrasound – fat, muscle, vessels, bone, fascia
  5. Distinguish between arteries and veins with ultrasound
  6. Demonstrate the skills necessary to mitigate filler complications using guided injections of hyaluronidase which include: nodules, granulomas, DON
  7. Summarize the value of ultrasound in treating vascular occlusion vs currently accepted protocols
  8. Identify and treat vascular occlusion due to fillers
  9. Summarize the pathophysiology of visual loss secondary to fillers and employ the steps to take if this complication occurs
  10. Use ultrasound into their aesthetic filler patient evaluations and treatments

Why Attend

“It was a pleasure to learn the essentials of aesthetic ultrasonography from Dr. Steven Weiner. The course was comprehensive with great hands-on experience. Using ultrasound in my practice will enable me to safely perform injections to avoid filler complications, and also help guide therapeutic interventions, among several other indications. Highly recommend!”
