It can be used with ease home with great results for Axillae Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating under the arms.It is the very latest Pulsed and Direct Current iontophoresis device and replaces the Hidrex PS500. This model of iontophoresis machine has a new, advanced feature that is exclusive to this machine and the Hidrex brand. The PSP 1000 has a variable pulse setting which increases the amount of energy applied to the treatment area in pulsed current treatments by 80%, greatly assisting patient response to treatments. This machine supersedes the Hidrex PS 500.
AS SEEN ON TV
Hidrex Iontophoresis machines were shown in the four most recent series of the Channel Four Embarrassing Bodies programme and on Live from the Clinic in both May 2012 and May 2014. The patients featured in the award winning documentary, were advised to use a Hidrex machine for Plantar Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the feet) and Axillae Hyperhidrosis(underarm sweating) by the show’s doctors and the results were amazing.The patients featured on the show overcame the condition (Excessive Sweating) using iontophoresis.

- with a heart pacemaker
- with an ICD (implanted cardiodefibrillator)
- during pregnancy
The contra indications below are relative, so iontophoresis can be performed after seeking advice from your Doctor or other Healthcare professional.
- with metalliferous Intrauterine devices (Coil)
- with large skin defects / wounds, which can not be masked with Vaseline
- with tumour diseases
- with thrombosis
- with strongly reduced sensibility of hands and feet (e.g. polyneuropathy)
- Children younger than 5 years
- with metal implants in the area of current flow** (arms or legs)

FULLY FEATURED IONTOPHORESIS MACHINE
The Hidrex PSP1000 is really two machines in one. It can operate in Direct Current (recommended for treating the feet) or be switched over to the more sensitive Pulsed Current mode for all other areas.
Standard pulsed current treatment provides power to the electrodes 50% of the time and then pauses power for the remaining 50% of the cycle. It is this on / off power feature that enables sensitive treatments on the skin – the bodies’ receptors do not ‘feel’ this pulse current flow. Direct current means that power from the machine is sent to the electrodes without any break in the flow, i.e power is applied 100% of the cycle time. Direct current is more powerful, due to the fact that power is applied without a break and so is traditionally better for treating the feet.
By adjusting the power / break percentages, the patient can set the amount of time the unit provides power to the electrodes. You can at the press of a button, increase the power in 10% increments while at the same time decreasing the time the unit pauses power. For example, you can choose 60% power with 40% pause, 70% power with 30% pause, all the way up to 90% (100% would be direct current).
This breakthrough in iontophoresis technology will enable far more sufferers of Hyperhidrosis to enjoy successful treatment. Even users who suffer with sensitive skin, or who suffer in difficult areas to treat, such as the face, neck and body can benefit. The Hidrex PSP1000 applies 80% more energy in pulsed current mode than any other pulsed current machine currently on the market.
