Reaching New Imaging, Achieving a New You

At Jeffrey C. Dawes MD, FRCSC Plastic and Dermatologic Surgery, our goal is to help patients achieve their most natural-looking aesthetic goals. To do so, we find and utilize the latest technology in the field.

With a revolutionary new way to visualize facial and superficial anatomy in real-time, we are proud to offer cosmetic treatments using the Clarius Handheld Ultrasound System.

What Is the Clarius Handheld Ultrasound System?

As a portable, handheld ultrasound system, the Clarius Handheld Ultrasound System is a device that allows our providers to see facial and superficial anatomy and imaging easily. With this technology, they can use it to determine exactly which cosmetic procedures can benefit you and help you achieve your overall aesthetic goals.

When it comes to aesthetic and plastic surgery, it can be challenging for your care provider to fully understand what's happening beneath your skin or what your skin will look like post-procedure. While your care provider can see what's happening on the outside, it's impossible for them to see what's happening under the skin during an injection or a procedure.

Now, however, the Clarius Handheld Ultrasound System allows our team to understand exactly what's happening beneath your skin in real time. When your care provider inserts a needle or begins a surgical procedure, they'll be able to see what's happening under the skin as it's happening. With the knowledge of how a patient’s appearance above and below the skin will look before, during, and after a procedure, more patients can expect to undergo a safe and effective treatment that will provide stellar, natural-looking results.

What Are the Benefits of the Clarius Handheld Ultrasound System?

When your care provider uses the Clarius Handheld Ultrasound System, the real-time view they get of the area underneath your skin allows them to view needles, map fat grafting areas, and assist with accuracy in reconstructive surgeries.

By using this revolutionary device, your care provider gets to create your treatment plan right away rather than waiting for information to come back from an ultrasound. This means that you don't have to wait when it comes to getting the look that you want.

How the Clarius Handheld Ultrasound System Works with Cosmetic Treatments

The Clarius Handheld Ultrasound System can help to enhance the experience of a number of cosmetic procedures that we offer, including:

Dermal Fillers

Most patients have a vision of the look they want to achieve when they commit to getting dermal fillers, and our providers know just how to help you achieve it. However, it can sometimes be challenging to pinpoint the exact place to inject filler in order to create the appearance that you're looking for. This challenge may often lead to asymmetry, filler migration, unsatisfactory results, and other dermal filler risks.

By pairing Clarius Handheld Ultrasound System technology with the injection of dermal fillers, your care provider will have an ultrasound machine in your treatment room, allowing them to examine the surface under your skin during each phase of your treatment. This will allow for precise needle placement with real-time feedback, allowing your care provider to understand exactly where your injection needs to go. It will also help your provider determine how much filler needs to be used in order to create the look that you want without compromising your natural beauty.


If you have any type of implant, you know that it's important to keep an eye out for implant rupture or movement. Normally, patients and their providers would have to feel through the skin and assume an implant is in a dangerous, health-compromising state. Sometimes, it can’t be known that an implant has ruptured until the implant is removed during surgery.

Now, the Clarius Handheld Ultrasound System allows your care provider to get a clear, current picture of your implant. You'll be able to see exactly what the problem is (if any) and understand the next steps in your treatment plan.

The Clarius Handheld Ultrasound System can also be helpful for other types of implants, including chin and cheek implants. Ensuring that your implant is placed perfectly can boost your healing process and help to ensure that your aesthetic preferences are met.

Why Is Using Ultrasound Technology Important in Aesthetics?

Ultrasound imaging and technology have never been more important in cosmetic procedures. Not only does it provide fast information and real-time imaging to help both providers and patients determine what a potential end result could look like, but it can also minimize risks, increase precision, and provide more natural-looking results.
