Phonophoresis / Ionophoresis

These are used both for the treatment of various diseases, and in cosmetology to improve the condition and appearance of the skin.

Changes are noticeable after 1-2 procedures.

You can return to your usual lifestyle immediately after the procedure.

What is phonopharesis/ionopharesis?

Phonopharesis Ionofares

The most significant difference between iontophoresis and phonophoresis is the different principle of action. In the first case there are galvanic currents, in the second – ultrasound. But the main goals of using both procedures are very close: to help drugs penetrate deeper under the skin to provide a more effective effect.

Both processes are referred to physiotherapeutic treatment and both can be used to carry drugs through the external skin integument. Let’s try to understand in more detail what iontophoresis and phonophoresis are.

Phonophoresis, or sonophoresis, involves the use of ultrasound in combination with drugs, which are usually in the form of a gel. The drug is applied to the skin, and then ultrasonic waves are used to help the drug penetrate the skin in a given area.

    About the procedure

    Duration of the procedure:

    30 minutes

    Recommended Course:

    5 to 10 procedures


    Improved muscle tone and lifting effect
    Moisturizing of face

    The main differences between the two procedures:

    • Iontophoresis is often used for direct and rapid exposure to drugs. Phonophoresis, having a weaker physical effect, is better suited for prolonged absorption, or prolonged.
    • The time of treatment by iontophoresis is often about 15-20 minutes, while phonophoresis requires no more than 10 minutes.
    • Ionophoresis is carried out using an electrode, and phonophoresis is carried out through special probes emitting ultrasonic energy.
    • With iontophoresis, there are chances of a chemical burn, and phonophoresis is a relatively safe procedure.
    • Iontophoresis can cause pain during treatment, phonophoresis is always painless.
    • Iontophoresis requires a more trained specialist; two hours of preparation is enough to work with phonophoresis.
