What Is CellSound?

Therapeutic ultrasound is a technology that has been used in the medical field for more than five decades. However, the effectiveness of ultrasound decreases within minutes after treatment begins because of the rapid decline occurs as the vibration ceases. This affects the waves’ ability to penetrate through the skin to reach the treatment area.

The introduction of CellSound technology can overcome this hindrance. Here is more information about this treatment.

Electrical Field Stimulation


CellSound treatment technology deals with penetration problems by using therapeutic properties effectively. The ability to get through the skin means that the treatment can get to the target area. Unlike other ultrasound therapies, CellSound uses an electric field.

The electric field deals with the impediment presented by the skin tissue. This allows the entire ultrasonic energy to get to the affected tissue. CellSound has an electric field that uses 4-poles to generate a medium frequency current.

Low-frequency Stimulation


Low-frequency stimulation provides pain relief and muscle relaxation, among other benefits. Unfortunately, without the use of an electric field, the skin impedes the effectiveness of the low-frequency treatment.

The treatment requires a higher voltage, which is uncomfortable. The penetration depth is low with higher frequency stimulation, and the effectiveness is limited. This is due to the patient’s discomfort.

CellSound Body Contouring


Body contouring using an electric field helps overcome the problem presented by the skin tissue impedance. A lower voltage can produce the desired current with low sensation. The treatment is quick and comfortable.

It can treat different areas, including the following:

  • Face

  • Abdomen

  • Thighs

  • Flanks

  • Arms

  • Buttock

  • Knees

  • Male breasts

The frequency range, electrical field intensity, and treatment time will depend on the area receiving treatment. A Photo Fact Center allows for digital documentation of the results on the system’s screen.

Benefits of the Treatment



  • Increased blood flow, increased nutrients, and improves cell metabolism and structure.

  • Improved production of collagen and elastin without causing injury or cavitation.

  • Enhanced muscle elasticity and volume. This results in a youthful appearance and fewer wrinkles.

  • Improved sebum production due to an enhanced flow of oxygen and nutrients.

  • Improved volume of the fat layer because of enhanced fat cell metabolism.

  • Increased lymphatic flow, results in glowing and healthy-looking skin. It also removes toxins and improves the overall health of the lymph vessels.

  • Better skin movement because of better nerve cell function.

Results of the Treatment


Most cosmetic treatments that reduce fat and contour the body, work by removing or destroying fat cells. These include cryotherapy, cavitation, liposuction, laser, and RF techniques.

This treatment does not destroy fat cells but causes the conversion of the cells. Lipids are secreted into the patient’s cardio system. The cells are gradually converted into energy that the body consumes. A single treatment increases the amount of fat consumed as an energy source. The fat released is used as metabolic fuel.

The treatment causes a significant reduction in body circumference and provides excellent body contouring results. The system is effective, but the treatment should be perform it with relevant expertise. Training and practice are necessary to produce optimal results.
