Ultrasound-Guided Treatment for Extreme Aesthetic Complications: Part 2 – Permanent Facial Fillers
Permanent fillers gone wrong require the right treatment plan to avoid further complications. Join expert Dr. MJ Rowland-Warmann, founder of the Smileworks Training HUB, as she demonstrates ultrasound techniques to characterize existing fillers and guide treatment for the best possible results.
In this 1-hour webinar, Dr. MJ will share a real patient case recently captured on video to:
- Describe how permanent fillers differ from temporary biodegradable fillers
- Discuss the challenges and complications associated with polyalkylimide filler over time
- Describe the ultrasound appearance of polyalkylimide compared to other fillers
- Address the complexity and methods of treating these deposits
- Discuss how to manage filler migration in the parotid gland
- Demonstrate the use of ultrasound-guided treatments with poly-lactic acid as a way of improving appearance in an aesthetically compromised patient without disturbing migrated polyalkylimide filler deposits
Being able to identify and characterize fillers is easily achievable with high-resolution ultrasound. In the case of polyalkylimide filler, knowledge of what has been injected under the skin is critical to address complications, plan the correct treatment, and avoid further complications.
Polyalkylimide is a non-resorbable gel that, when injected sub dermally, resembles fatty tissue and becomes encapsulated over time. Complications include infection, sterile inflammatory abscess, and migration within tissue planes and into other fascial layers. These deposits need to be correctly identified as treatment is vastly different compared to temporary fillers. Careful planning is required as treatment can be quite challenging, and missteps can exacerbate complications.
As a renowned advocate for using ultrasound to improve the safety of aesthetic procedures, Dr. MJ Rowland-Warmann sees nearly daily complication cases from other injectors. She recently treated a patient who received polyalkylimide filler 10 years ago. In this webinar, she’ll describe the complications that developed and present expert ultrasound imaging techniques to identify and characterize them.
She will further share her transformative treatment techniques captured on video. You’ll learn new ultrasound-guided skills to precisely inject filler and ameliorate contouring complications without disrupting permanent filler for the best possible outcomes for your patients.
Dr. MJ will be joined by your host and sonographer Shelley Guenther, who will perform live scanning with the Clarius L20 HD3 – now 30% lighter, more affordable, and highly specialized for facial aesthetics. Seating is limited. Don’t miss it – register today!
