Hi there XXXXXXX XXXXXXX Your question is very specific & so shall tailor my answer to XXXXXXX your requirements: Yes ultrasonic facial while pregnant (1st trimester) is SAFE. Ensure they use the 'old fashioned' lead shield that radiographers' use for extra protection over your abdomen more for the extra mental comfort!
Here's wishing you a safe & uneventful pregnancy & delivery. Cheers!
