Introducing MX7 MX9 Ultrasound to Your Clinic

Dr Liu explains why you might want to introduce ultrasound into your aesthetic practice and shares her approach for implementation

Facial ultrasound seems to be the latest thing in facial aesthetics. Every time I read new journal articles, it seems to be about ultrasound-guided treatments or investigations. I had seen a few articles about ultrasound in the past but had not really considered its use in clinic. After dealing with a vascular complication, I became convinced that ultrasound-guided treatments and vascular mapping would make a big difference to my patients’ downtime, and provide an added layer of safety when performing injectable treatments.1 Here, I share my journey of discovery into the use of ultrasound in my clinic.

Why I decided to use MX7 ultrasound

I initially became interested in facial ultrasound after dealing with a tricky vascular occlusion. Anyone who has dealt with occlusion is aware that resolution is not instant and often requires repeat injections and daily reviews of the patient. I successfully reversed the occlusion and the patient healed uneventfully, but I was convinced the treatment could have been faster and less painful for the patient. If I had been able to doppler and identify the affected vessel by detecting the area of abnormal blood flow using the ultrasound doppler mode, I could then have injected hyaluronidase into the affected vessel under direct visualization. This would have likely made the resolution and recovery time much quicker. So, I began researching affordable ultrasounds that could be used in a facial aesthetic clinic setting.
