I want to be able to look my patients in the eye and tell them I did everything I could to keep them safe,” says Dr. MJ Rowland-Wermann in response to a question about why she began using ultrasound at her aesthetics practice.
A former dentist, Dr. MJ now limits her practice to performing aesthetic procedures for her patients, helping referred patients suffering from complications related to aesthetic procedures, and teaching colleagues how to use ultrasound. She is the clinical director at the SmileWorks Hub, a dental and aesthetic clinic in Liverpool, United Kingdom.
I think ultrasound is the most important development that has come to aesthetic medicine since the invention of filler,” she says. “There is nothing like it, never have we been able to see underneath the surface of the skin. And it is so important that we improve safety in our procedures.”
Dr. MJ’s ultrasound training coincided with the beginning of the pandemic when she heard from fellow practitioners who had been using ultrasound to improve procedure safety. She also learned about the availability of affordable handheld ultrasound devices.
I think Clarius sits in a league of its own and that’s a good thing. We have this accessible device that can be used in aesthetic medicine to improve safety for patients. This tiny machine has phenomenal processing power and image quality and when you combine it with external displays, like an iPad or an iPad Pro, Clarius is so close to the conventional cart-based systems. Yet it’s in a lower price league so aesthetic practitioners can easily incorporate it in their practices.”
Dr. MJ has been using the Clarius L20 HD since 2020 and recently switched to the new Clarius L20 HD3, which is 30% smaller and lighter than its predecessor. We recently had the opportunity to talk to Dr. MJ during a video interview about her experience with using ultrasound guidance. Watch this short video to learn what she had to say.
