The utility of high-frequency ultrasound in dermal filler evaluation.


:Aim of this study is to describe the use of high-frequency ultrasound to ascertain the site, quantity, and type of filler injected in the soft tissue of the face, with respect to reliability of the procedure and the analysis costs. Between December 2006 and August 2010, 80 subjects aged 25 to 65 years, who underwent facial filler augmentation, were submitted to high-frequency sonography. Of total, 42 patients (22 after temporary filler and 20 after permanent filler) were healthy and satisfied of the treatment, and 38 patients sought consultation for filler-related problems. The nature of the injected filler was known in 86.25% of the patients, whereas it was unknown in 13.75% of the patients. Besides 4 patients, previously treated with temporary products, in which no foreign material was detected, high-frequency sonography was able to identify and quantify the presence of filler in the soft tissue of 97% of patients. Moreover, it was possible to detect inflammatory reaction (that were often silent), granulomas, and recognize the presence of diverse fillers in the same area. Ultrasonography has proved to be a useful, inexpensive, noninvasive tool for the identification of the site, quantity, and often even nature of the filler injected.
