Ultrascan UC 22

Ultrascan UC 22

measurement of skin thickness and density with ultrasound

Look into the skin with 22 MHz

22 MHz ultrasound is an interesting tool to measure skin thickness and density in vivo with plenty of different applications.
The Ultrascan UC 22 is OEM made especially for C + K and our customers to complete the product range of skin testing parameters with an extremely economic, easy to handle and absolutely accurate ultrasound device for cosmetic research.


  • Advantages of the Ultrascan UC 22

    UC frequency

    The measurement is based on ultrasound waves entering the skin and being reflected differently according to the different tissues. The reflected waves are transformed into electrical impulses and result in an image shown in 256 different colours in a B-scan.

    With 22 MHz you can look 6-8 mm deep into the skin in high resolution. The system has many advantages:

    • Very economical, extremely accurate device to look into the skin in depths.
    • Easy to install and use, intuitive software, only connected by USB UC probe
    • The probe is made for easy handling and does all scans automatically without further movement by the user. The transducer goes linearly over the skin.
    • Only water is needed to receive a scan, no messy gel application. Foils are not necessary but can be used optionally together with regular ultrasound gel.
    • Continuous live scans, not only one single scan per measurement (video of 10 images per B-scan)
    • Automatic measurement between set lines of skin thickness in µm and skin density (ultrasound density in % and as a colour value between 0 and 256 a. u.) for the total image and split for epidermis/entrance echo and dermis.
    • In addition measurements of depth and width and length of lines and area (also drawn in freehand).
    • The measurements of up to 6 areas per image can be saved.
    • Phase correction (flattening of the image) to determine skin thickness as exactly as possible.
    • The viewing depths can be changed from 8 mm to 6.4 or 4 mm to better see details in the upper layers (no resolution change).
    • A multitude of different applicationsuc22
    • The images of the B-scan can be exported as image-files to be used in other applications.
    • The probe head can easily be cleaned after each measurement.
    • A probe holder can be mounted to the table.
    • Manufactured by a German company with the best reputation in the field of ultrasound devices
  • Fields of Application

    There is a multitude of applications for dermatology and cosmetology.

    • skin aging & sun damage
    • Mohs surgery (tumour surgery)
    • tumour depth, especially before surgery
    • skin thickness
    • laser treatment
    • osteoporosis risk (optionally)
    • wound treatment
    • cosmetic research & efficacy testing
    • aesthetic skin treatment
    • tissue beneath wounds
