Ultrasound gel is an important tool in diagnostics and therapy. Ultrasound examinations are particularly important in pregnancy. It is only through the transparent, thick viscous liquid that the ultrasonic waves are transmitted in sonography. The image and sound recordings are only possible with the ultrasound gel.
We have summarized the most important advantages for you as follows:
- ingredients that are friendly to the skin and mucous membranes
- exact transmission of the sound waves
- control over already treated areas
- formaldehyde & grease free
- care through moisture
- made on a water basis
- cooling of the skin stressed by light impulses
- high gliding ability
For a smooth transmission of the ultrasonic waves, buy low priced ultrasound gel from well-known manufacturers such as Aquasonic now! Read on here at the end of this page.
Properties of the Ultrasound Gel
The ultrasound gel possesses various characteristics that make it such an innovative product.
The product, also known as Sonogel, is particularly easy to use and very user-friendly, as well as being suitable for patients with skin sensitivities. It does not contain any UV stabilizers, perfumes or dyes and has a pH value of 5.8 to 6.4. The high lubricity ensures that the sound head can be moved smoothly on the skin during the ultrasound treatment and that there is no uncomfortable pulling on the surface of the skin. The gel also leaves no unpleasant residue on the skin and does not dry out.
Furthermore, due to the high quality ingredients, damage to the ultrasound head by the gel can be excluded. In addition to a high concentration of humidifier, the ultrasound gel also contains benzyl alcohol. The ingredients make the gel very economical to use and it can be safely stored for up to a year if the packaging is opened. Consumers also mention the odorlessness as a positive aspect of the product - the ultrasound gels from Medicalcorner24® offer you all of this. Buy low priced ultrasound gel now in the online shop!
Use of the Ultrasound Gel in Ultrasound Therapy or Ultrasound Diagnostics
For an ultrasound examination, apply the gel generously, but not too much, to the sound head or the ultrasound probe or to the area of skin to be examined. To easily dose the gel for treatments, spatulas or our dosing and application aids are suitable. Then distribute the ultrasound gel evenly. Due to the texture, it can be applied without the formation of bubbles and ensures perfect transmission of the sound waves, for example during medical ultrasound examinations during pregnancy.
Use a towel or paper towel to remove the contact gel and wipe off the gel. Use a cleaning spray to carefully and reliably clean the transducer or probes from ultrasound gel residues. Professional and appropriate cleaning increases the lifespan of your devices and ensures that they can be used properly.
Function of the Ultrasound Gel
Ultrasound gel is used as a sliding transition agent so that there is no air between the transducer of the ultrasound machine and the patient's skin. More precisely, it not only reduces the formation of air or bubbles, but also the acoustic resistance between air and skin.
Normally, the reflectivity between the two components is almost 100%, which means that the sound waves can hardly penetrate the skin without gel because they are completely reflected. Accordingly, the doctor would not see anything on the screen of the ultrasound machine. In contrast to an MRI, the ultrasound machine works with sound instead of images.
What Else is Ultrasound Gel Used for?
The ultrasound gel can not only be found in an ultrasound examination, but also in cosmetics. In laser hair removal, ultrasound gel or IPL gel is used to improve the conductivity of the laser between the device and the tissue. That is why ultrasound gel is often referred to as contact gel.
Another use is for ultrasonic facial treatment. However, here the contact medium for the ultrasound is enriched with hyaluronic acid. With this application, harmful substances in the skin barrier are loosened and removed. In addition, the pores open and collagen fibers are stimulated. The entire complexion thus gains elasticity.

How is Ultrasound Gel Composed?
The viscous water-based conductive gel with a low pH value is particularly skin-friendly. It also contains a high concentration of humectants, is water-soluble and free of dyes, perfumes and micro-bubbles. Thanks to the water-based ingredients, the contact gel does not leave any stains on clothing or fabrics. Buy low priced ultrasound gel now!
Can You Use Ultrasound Gel as a Lubricant?
Lubricants and ultrasound gels have the same consistency and similar properties, but you should not use ultrasound gel for reasons of cost. When using ultrasonic contact gels, care should be taken to determine whether the gel is intended for external or internal use. For vaginal ultrasound examinations, you should buy gel that has good mucosal compatibility, medical sterility and adhesive properties.
Is Ultrasound Gel also Suitable for Allergy Sufferers?
Since ultrasound gel is water-based and free from perfumes, dyes and other additives, allergic reactions are very unlikely. In the rarest of cases, an allergic reaction occurs due to the ingredient phenoxyethanol, which is contained in some ultrasound gels. This preservative is used in many contact gels as an antiseptic or disinfectant.
In general, however, you could be allergic to any ingredient, which is why there are no ultrasound gels that are completely allergen-free. However, some manufacturers deliberately avoid using certain preservatives and allergens, as this problem is well known.
Note: Get advice from your attending physician and inform him of any known allergies. Doctors should clarify any known allergies as part of the anamnesis.
