Several mechanisms of action have been proposed to explain the action of sonophoresis, including temperature increase, decrease in the donor-membrane interfacial potential energy and cavitation. Recent studies have shown that the thermal effect of ultrasound frequency is not the sole factor increasing drug penetration through the skin. Generally..
