Basic principles of Ultrasound in Aesthetic Dermatology

The use of ultrasound in Aesthetic Dermatology has become increasingly present in the daily lives of the most qualified practitioners, helping them to avoid and treat complications related to injectable procedures.

The sonography is a dynamic image method and allows the injector to visualize facial structures during the procedure, identify the best injection plan and avoid important vascular structures. It also allows to differentiate previously injected fillers and guide the treatments of complications.

To incorporate this valuable tool into your daily practice you need training!


This intensive one day hands on course will:

  • Familiarize you with the use of dermatological ultrasound
  • Demonstrate how to identify anatomical structures
  • Teach you the basic technique to perform ultrasound guided injections


During the course you will have the opportunity to handle different devices. In addition, you will have the opportunity to follow a live ultrasound guided filler treatment performed by our experts.
