Since 1968, tap water iontophoresis machines have been employed as the method of choice for treating palmoplantar hyperhidrosis.
Tap water iontophoresis is a treatment for excessive sweating that interferes with the sweat glands just below the outer layer of the skin. This treatment positively treats more than 90% of cases of patients with palmar and plantar hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the hands or feet). If it doesn't work for you, we'll send your money back.
Iontophoresis causes no known side effects and its efficiency does not decrease over time.
Only slight skin irritation or sensations of discomfort can occur during treatment. Electric burns and shocks can be avoided by following routine precautions. Contraindications for tap water iontophoresis are metallic implants, such as cardiac pacemakers, or orthopaedic joint or bone implants, if they are within the electric circuit. Defects in the skin barrier, which cannot be protected by petroleum jelly or insulating tape, also represent a temporary contraindication. Treatment in pregnancy is contraindicated, since experience is lacking.
A simple 20-minute session once a week is often all it takes to achieve a comfortable perspiration level.
During treatment, it is recommended to invert the polarity of the electric current halfway through the session for optimal treatment.
Iontophoresis is the perfect long-term treatment for palmar and plantar treatment.
