Therapeutic and anti-cellulite ultrasound

Sonoplus 492










Ultrasound includes the mechanical waves that have same physical properties as well as audible sound, but the higher frequencies that the human ear can not perceive (17000-20000 Hz).

It is based on piezoelectricity, ie the capacity of crystals to mske alternating electric field oscillate, changing their wavelength and thus causing mechanical vibrations

Anti-cellulite ultrasound - in the treatment of cellulite can be efficiently applied ultrasound of 3 MHz, which acts on the skin and subcutaneous adipose tissue. Its effect can be enhanced by using anti-cellulite cream or gel, by means of ultrasound which penetrate deeper into the tissue.

Therapeutic ultrasound - in physical therapy applied frequency of 1 MHz, which operates primarily in deeply located structures such as joints and tendons.

The ultrasonic wave can be successfully applied as a vehicle for better penetration of therapeutic agents deeper into the tissue. When we want to achieve a higher concentration of antirheumatic drugs in the muscles, tendons or joints applied ultrasound of 1 MHz, resulting in a stronger local pharmacologically micromassage and thermal effect, and to avoid unwanted side effects with systemic administration of the paramedics.

Therapeutic ultrasound helps with:

1. joint inflammation (arthritis)

2. bag mucosal inflammation (bursitis)

3. coat of joint inflammation (capsulitis)

4. inflammation of epicondyle (epicodylitis)

5.inflammation of tendons (tendinitis)

6. contusions or muscle contusion

7. muscle strains or distortion,

8. hamstring strains,

9. joint sprains,

10. joint contractures

11. scars

12. chronic degeneration of joints and spine (eg. spondylosis of the spine)

13. tightness

14. cellulite

15. swelling and slowed circulation.

16. sports injuries


Ultrasound should not be used in patients with cardiac pacemakers, children up to 18 years, during radiotherapy of malignant disease, with advanced osteoporosis at the lumbar spine and abdomen of pregnant women, the joints with embedded metal parts (endoprosthesis, osteosynthesis), in fresh injuries and bleeding tendency.

Ultrasound in body tissues is achieved by mechanical, thermal, physico-chemical and biochemical effects.

Mechanical effects resulting from alternating contraction and expansion of the media during ultrasonic vibration. This is achieved by micro-massage, which is the most important effect of ultrasound treatment

The heat capacity, which is the most obvious, is due to friction in the conversion of mechanical energy into thermal energy vibrations. This effect is particularly pronounced in areas where there is reflection (scattering of ultrasound), which is the boundary between soft tissue and bone (tendon insertions, chordal sheath meniscus). Thus, it increases cell membrane permeability and tissue blood flow, which contributes to faster healing.

Due to physico-chemical effect of ultrasonic waves in the tissues increases the pH of intracellular fluid and permeability of biological membranes, which promotes the oxidation process and the absorption of oxygen.

Biochemical action causes the conversion of the gel-state of the sol-state, thereby breaking large molecular complexes (which is particularly important in the treatment of tightness).


By increasing the temperature of the micro-massage there is an increase in the permeability of cell membranes, stimulates circulation, improves metabolism, a decreases sympathetic activity which leads to decreased muscle tone, decreased pain, increased elasticity and increased ability of tissue regeneration.
