Facial Aesthetics: Vascular Mapping

Dr. Steven F. Weiner, MD

Identify the arteries of the face prior to any injection to minimize risk of vascular occlusion or puncture. Ultrasound reduces the risk of facial injection and eliminates ambiguity around the high degree of anatomic variability. High frequency transducer is required to identify the various arteries across their course and their depth from surface or adjacent structures can be easily measured.
