Sonophoresis: Transdermal Drug Delivery Induced by EQ Pro Low Frequency Ultrasound

Sonophoresis is a process that exponentially increases the absorption of semisolid topical compounds, usually consisting of hydrophilic molecules and macromolecules into the epidermis, dermis and skin appendages.

Sonophoresis occurs because low-frequency ultrasound waves stimulate micro-vibrations within the skin epidermis and increase the overall kinetic energy of molecules making up topical agents. 

EQ Pro Therapy, by rising the skin surface temperature, increases dermal capillary vasodilation and cell membrane permeability, therefore allowing transcutaneous absorption of the medication.

The acoustic pressure generated promotes deep drug diffusion and absorption, optimizing both pharmacokinetics and drug action.
