What is Ultrasound Gel?
Ultrasound gel is a water-based gel which is used to conduct ultrasound waves. There are many diagnostic and therapy techniques that use this from obstetric, physiotherapy, radiology and beauty. Ultrasound gel consistency is fairly thick which helps prevent it running off or dissipating too much when applied to the skin or the ultrasound transducer that is being used. It is usually cold to the touch however sometimes it can be warmed in gel warmers to prevent the cold sensation.
How does it work?
A generous amount is applied either to the ultrasound transducer or directly onto the patients skin that the transducer is going to come into contact with. Ultrasound waves do not travel well in the air so for good conduction of these waves with the least amount of absorption or distortion the Ultrasound gel is used. It can simply be wiped off at the end of the examination or treatment.
How does Cosmetic Gel Differ
Cosmetic gel is a more viscous (thicker consistency) version of the ANAGEL Ultrasound Gel. Some therapists for this reason prefer using it for their chosen therapy whether it be laser or IPL treatments.
Arnica and Aloe Vera Gel
These two gels have unique and amazing properties going back to their natural origins. Both very different but equally as effective in their field of expertise.
Our Arnica gel is a non-sticky water based gel, that is easily absorbed and features Arnica extract and Lavender essential oil to help relieve, revitalize and soothe your skin.
Our Aloe Vera gel has an excellent soothing effect on many skin conditions, including but not limited to, sunburns, dry skin, cosmetic ailments and even hair and scalp problems. It is an intensive moisturiser that is easily absorbed into the skin and suitable for all skin types. These great gels are used for repair and recovery within the beauty category.
