Abstract

Ultrasound technology is finally being used outside of the hospital setting. The simple, non-invasive and radiation-free imaging modality is now a reality in the medical aesthetic clinic. Ultrasound has been recognised as a suitable investigation in aesthetic complications since 2008 and recommended in practice since 2013. Technological advances have enabled professionals to deliver imaging in any environment. In treatment planning, delivery and aftercare, patient outcomes can be optimised. Ultrasound imaging allows reliable dermal filler identification, vascular mapping, management of vascular compromise and nodules, real-time rheology and measurement in relation to treatment outcomes. The challenges that remain relate to underpinning availability and enthusiasm with education and support. At the time of writing, there are no such mechanisms or educational programmes.
