At our clinic in Windsor, we’re dedicated to providing you with safe and effective aesthetic treatments. One key tool in our arsenal that sets us apart is the use of ultrasound in conjunction with dermal filler procedures. This innovative approach is driven by our commitment to safety, results, and ensuring that your natural beauty shines through.

Why We Use Ultrasound at Define By Jill

1. Enhancing Safety

Safety is our utmost priority. Ultrasound helps us ensure that the treatment is administered with the utmost precision, minimising the risk of complications. By visualising critical anatomical structures, such as blood vessels, before injecting in higher-risk areas, like the nose, temples, or forehead, we can make well-informed decisions to maximise safety.

2. Providing More Information

Ultrasound provides us with valuable insights that enhance our understanding of your facial anatomy. This additional information allows us to tailor the procedure to your unique needs and characteristics, ensuring the best possible outcome.

3. Treating Complications

In the rare event of complications, ultrasound comes to the rescue. By visualising the filler’s placement and depth, we can create an accurate dissolving plan, resulting in less pain and fewer reinjections. This technology also aids us in confirming the successful resolution of complications.

Different Applications of Ultrasound in Dermal Filler Procedures

Here are some of the ways in which we use ultrasound with dermal fillers:

1. Anatomy Assessment

Before the procedure, we may use ultrasound to assess your facial anatomy, particularly in areas with heightened risk. This step allows us to visualise blood vessels and choose the most optimal technique and depth to minimise the possibility of complications.

2. Ultrasound-Guided Injections

Ultrasound-guided injections allow our practitioners to observe the needle’s real-time movement and the precise placement of the filler. This is particularly valuable when treating areas close to blood vessels, ensuring the utmost accuracy and safety.

3. Filler Evaluation and Dissolving Aid

When a filler no longer aligns with your aesthetic goals due to migration, ultrasound helps us identify its placement and depth. This knowledge facilitates a treatment plan for accurate dissolving, minimising pain, reducing the volume needed for injection, and confirming the filler’s dissolution during subsequent reviews.

How Ultrasound Works

The Clarius Cloud ultrasound device, coated with a gel for smooth gliding, utilises ultrasound waves that penetrate the skin, offering a visual representation of the facial layers. While it can’t penetrate bone, it provides clear imagery of bone structures due to their reflective properties. Fluid-containing elements such as blood vessels and their blood flow are vividly displayed on the ultrasound, enhancing our ability to navigate safely.

Our Commitment to Your Safety and Satisfaction

The incorporation of ultrasound in our procedures is part of our commitment to improving safety, optimising results, and preventing and managing complications. If any potential filler-related issues arise, ultrasound enables us to diagnose and treat them more effectively. Moreover, its regular use benefits our team’s understanding of facial anatomy and its variations.

For those patients experiencing issues with their long-standing fillers leading to lumping or swelling, ultrasound is the key to locating and dissolving the filler in a straightforward procedure.

At Define By Jill, our priority is your well-being, and the use of ultrasound with dermal fillers exemplifies our dedication to providing the safest and most effective treatments to enhance your natural beauty.
