Ultrasound therapy is said to promote healing and soften scar tissue. There is only one danger that I know of and that is to hover the ultrasound head over one area too long which could burn tissue. Ive seen some at home kits go for $100 on amazon.com and other places and that would definately be worth it because you would otherwise have to made repeat office visits that would be time consuming and could end up being pretty pricy
