The latest model from Hidrex® (replacing the Hidrex® PSP500), the Hidrex® PSP1000 is a fully featured, professional-grade iontophoresis device that is used extensively in hospitals and clinics worldwide, and is ideal for home use. The Hidrex® PSP1000 For Underarms system is especially configured to treat excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis).
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 Hidrex® PSP1000 - 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.

“It’s changed my life completely. I don’t sweat any more at all.” - Ed, 17, diagnosed with hyperhidrosis.
The Hidrex® PSP1000 iontophoresis machine has featured numerous times on Channel 4's hit TV show "Embarrassing Bodies" and its spin-off show "Embarrassing Bodies: Live From The Clinic".
Watch Ed discussing his great success from using the Hidrex PSP1000 to treat his excessive underarm sweating problem (axillary hyperhidrosis) with Dr Christian Jessen and Dr Dawn Harper below:

Those with more severe cases of hyperhidrosis require a higher power to ensure the best chance of success. Mains powered machines produce considerably higher power, in comparison to battery powered machines. The Hidrex® PSP1000 delivers the highest power available, for even quicker results.
Unlike many iontophoresis machines, the Hidrex® PSP1000 can operate in both “Direct Current” and “Pulsed Current” power cycles. The power cycle refers to the percentage of the overall treatment time that the machine provides an electric current.
A Direct Current iontophoresis machine sends power to the electrodes 100% of the cycle time - in other words, constant power is applied without any break in the flow. Direct Current is more efficient than Pulsed Current, due to the fact that power is applied without a break. However, due to the continuous supply of power, Direct Current can be uncomfortable for those with sensitive skin or skin conditions such eczema, or for any users under 18, and for anyone treating sensitive areas of the body, such as the underarms.
Pulsed Current, on the other hand, sends pulses of power throughout the treatment time. The on-off power cycle provides a far more comfortable treatment, enabling iontophoresis to be performed at high power on patients with sensitive skin, on younger users, and on patients treating sensitive areas of the body, with zero discomfort.
Standard Pulsed Current machines provide power to the electrodes 50% of the time and then pause for the remaining 50% of the cycle. Uniquely, the Pulse Cycle can be adjusted on the Hidrex® PSP1000 – see below.
The Hidrex® PSP1000 includes two functions that are only available on Hidrex® machines, including one that is unique to the model.
Exclusive to the Hidrex® PSP1000, Pulse Cycle Adjustment allows the user to the vary the percentage of the overall treatment time that the machine provides an electric current. At the press of a button, users can adjust the pulse rate from a standard rate of 50% through to 100% (direct current), in 10% increments. This breakthrough in iontophoresis technology can improve the overall efficiency of the machine by up to 80%, as users can receive more treatment over the same period of time, compared to when using a standard pulsed current machine - while at the same time not having to cope with the sometimes uncomfortable intensity of direct current.
Immersion Monitoring is a range of safety features exclusive to the Hidrex® range of iontophoresis machines. It includes checking the level of resistance of the patient to ensure that the skin is in a suitable condition to receive iontophoresis treatment.
The Hidrex® PSP1000 is completely safe to use and is certified as a medical device. It is constructed in Germany and surpasses stringent EU manufacturing standards. Treatments are performed using simple tap water, although if recommended by your doctor, this device can be used with prescription medications.
The Hidrex® PSP1000 is compact and lightweight, and it comes supplied in its own modern carry case. The Hidrex® PSP1000 can even be included in your hand luggage on flights. It is also dual-voltage (110v and 240v) so it will work worldwide without the need for additional equipment, such as a transformer.
Hidrex® PSP1000 For Underarms includes everything you need to treat excessive sweating of the underarms:
The Hidrex® PSP1000 For Underarms system has been specifically configured to treat axillary hyperhidrosis. It includes everything you need to treat excessive sweating of the underarms.
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 medical injections.
Unfortunately, iontophoresis treatment should not be considered if the patient:
A prescription from your GP is not required to undergo iontophoresis. However, we are required to see a valid doctor’s prescription (Rx) for Hidrex iontophoresis machine orders being dispatched to the USA, in order to satisfy FDA regulations. Prescriptions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
All other countries do not require prescription.
