What is SONOINJECT™?
SONOINJECT™ utilizes the non-invasive power of ultrasound to map the vascular pathways of the face. Your face has abundant blood vessels to support your healthy complexion. That’s why invasive facial cosmetic procedures can lead to temporary swelling and bruising in some cases. Knowing where those pathways are, ensures safe dermal filler injection. The device optimizes the facial filler injection process to combine decades of experience and skill with the real-time ability to visualize under your skin’s surface. The technique reduces risk of vascular injury immensely and provides safety through precision.

Can your facial cosmetic surgeon see the fillers you already have?
There are other benefits to using this assistive technology for dermal filler treatment. Many of today’s patients have come from another clinic or had previous treatments, yet they’re not sure what they had injected, where, or when. If significant time passed since your last facial filler session, the product may be gone, or not. If you’ve developed any hardened areas or granulomas from a permanent or semi-permanent product, your surgeon will want to visualize the material for proper assessment. Now, with SONOINJECT™ that’s not only possible but a standard part of your treatment. During your facial injection appointment, your practitioner can quickly and gently scan your facial tissue to identify any remaining, underlying areas where products are still in place.
Facial fillers tend to have hydrophilic or hydrophobic characteristics, and all hyaluronic acid fillers bind water, making them hydrophilic. Water content doesn’t reflect sound waves from the handpiece; therefore, it appears black or dark grey on the imaging screen.
Hyaluronic acid fillers carry the advantage of being dissolvable using an enzyme, hyaluronidase. In the case that a patient is unhappy with their filler, or if there is a complication, fast dissolution of the HA product is done by injection of hyaluronidase to the precise filler mass. If the product is deep, detection may be challenging. Rather than injecting blindly, it’s exceptionally beneficial in these cases to have the ability to map the underlying structures and see the filler clearly while applying the treatment.
