What is ultrasound and what are the benefits?


Ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the internal structures of the human body. In recent years, ultrasound has become an increasingly important tool in the field of aesthetic medicine and as a clinic we have been using a @clarius now for approximately 20 months. This is because ultrasound can be used to assess the skin and subcutaneous tissue, providing valuable information that can help clinicians make more informed treatment decisions and also during emergency protocols it can provide vital information that can help guide a clinical response. One of the key benefits of using ultrasound in aesthetic medicine is that it allows clinicians to visualise the underlying structures of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. This can be particularly useful when assessing the thickness and elasticity of the skin, as well as the location of underlying blood vessels and nerves. By visualising these structures, clinicians can better tailor their treatment plans to the individual needs of each patient. Another important benefit of ultrasound in aesthetic medicine is that it can be used to guide minimally invasive procedures, such as injections and fillers. This is because ultrasound can provide real-time imaging of the target area, allowing clinicians to precisely place the injection or filler in the correct location. This can help to minimise the risk of complications and ensure that the desired results are achieved. Ultrasound can also be used to assess the effectiveness of aesthetic treatments over time. For example, it can be used to measure changes in skin thickness and elasticity following a treatment, allowing clinicians to track the progress of the patient's recovery. This can be particularly useful when assessing the effectiveness of treatments such as skin tightening and cellulite reduction. Overall, the use of ultrasound in aesthetic medicine has become increasingly important in recent years. By providing valuable information about the structure and function of the skin and subcutaneous tissue, ultrasound can help clinicians make more informed treatment decisions and ensure that their patients achieve the best possible results whilst being a vital part of any safe clinic that focuses on patient safety.
