AESTHETIC ULTRASOUND, FILLER COMPLICATIONS & FILLER DISSOLVING
Aesthetic ultrasound & filler dissolving treatments
tailored for you.
Dr Jake has trained in using facial ultrasound with the world's leading experts from Cutaneous Facial Ultrasound. Ultrasound is used to assess aesthetic patients and visualise what is beneath the skin in a completely non-invasive way. This can be incredibly useful for example if you have old filler that you don't like, it can be targeted with tiny quantities of filler dissolver.
We can also look inside the tissues and look for the location of the larger blood vessels that we need to avoid before placing fillers (known as 'vascular mapping'.) Ultrasound is also sometimes used when injecting routine filler or anti-wrinkle patients for more accurate placement of the products and for safer outcomes.

Dr Jake is one of very few injectors in Australia who uses ultrasound to visualise the underlying anatomy of face. This can be used to diagnose and treat issues from previous fillers including:
Filler lumps or swellings obvious asymmetry
On/off puffiness of an area over-filled areas
Loss of lip definition from previous fillers or filler 'migration' Vascular occlusions (emergencies)
Filler dissolving usually only takes one session, but occasionally further sessions might be required - for example if there is a lot of filler to dissolve.
If you've had a treatment performed by another injector and are unhappy with the outcomes, please ask your previous injector for the notes of the treatment including the date of the treatment/s, the volumes and brands used and where they were injected in the face. This will help streamline the consultation and improve the likelihood of success.
