Dr. Steven F. Weiner, a facial plastic surgeon based in Florida, is a vocal advocate for using ultrasound to ensure safe aesthetic procedures. He is also an ardent fan of the Clarius L20 HD3 wireless ultrasound scanner, especially for someone considering adding ultrasound to their aesthetic practice for the first time.
Not everyone wants to enter the market at a $30,000 price range before they even use ultrasound. So, I suggest that they enter the market using a Clarius,” he explains. “I get great resolution. I can see all the fillers I need to see, as well as the vascular structures.”
Dr. Weiner started using ultrasound about three years ago for facial mapping prior to injections to avoid complications and to confirm the placement of fillers. He had his “aha” moment during a visit to Amsterdam with Dr. Leonie Schelke whose clinic is devoted to resolving filler complications. Watch his video interview to learn how Dr. Schelke was able to quickly clear a vascular occlusion with 125 units of hyaluronidase that a referring physician was unable to resolve with 3000 units!
Ultrasound Training for Aesthetics with Dr. Weiner
Since establishing his Aesthetic Clinique 15 years ago, Dr. Weiner has expanded his practice to include laser treatments, fillers, and body sculpting. Recently, he is dedicating more time to teaching, training, and writing book chapters. He founded Sonosthetics, a training program designed to make students proficient at taking care of complications and performing vascular mapping to avoid complications. He also works with Clarius on a series of webinars and had recorded video tutorials for our popular Clarius Classroom.
We invite you to watch Dr. Weiner’s recent on-demand webinar to learn his step-by-step techniques for performing safer filler injections with ultrasound to limit vascular complications in the lower face.
