What is iontophoresis?
Used by medical professionals the world over since the 1920s, iontophoresis is a safe, painless and non-invasive process, initially devised as a method of delivering medicine through the skin (trans-dermal drug delivery). Since the 1940s, the process has been used without medicine as an effective method of controlling excessive sweating.
Iontophoresis treatment for Hyperhidrosis involves using a dedicated iontophoresis machine – such as the idromed® 5 GS – with simple tap water to pass a safe, painless electrical current through the areas of the body where excessive sweating is a problem. The result is a total reduction of sweating in the treatment area.
This method of treating Hyperhidrosis has been used by doctors, skin specialists and other medical professionals in hospitals, clinics and dermatology departments around the world for over 65 years.
SIMPLE TO USE
With its one-touch controls, the idromed® 5 GS is very easy to use. Treatments are performed using simple tap water, although if recommended by your doctor, this device can be used with prescription medications.

WHY SHOULD I USE IONTOPHORESIS?
Iontophoresis is an extremely successful method of treating hyperhidrosis, and it should be considered if high quality maximum strength antiperspirants are unable to control sweat levels. It should be also attempted before considering invasive processes, such as surgery or Botulinum toxin (Botox) injections.

- has a heart pacemaker
