Ultrasound

Ultrasound (US) high frequency sound wave which is a form of mechanical energy.  When cells in the body are exposed to US they will move backwards and forwards and absorb the energy from the sound wave, which can produce a heating effect if desired.

 

To help the US get to the target tissue a gel is used to prevent the US reflecting off the skin.
