With its simple, single dial controls and clear text LCD display, this state-of-the-art device includes static shock protection and a built-in timer to ensure excellent results, simply and safely.

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.

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.
The iontophoresis treatment is performed using hand and foot baths. The affected parts of the body are placed inside the treatment basin, which is filled with normal tap water. A weak DC electrical current is conducted through the baths by electrodes. This current is increased gradually to a certain intensity, so that the patient experiences a 'pleasant' tingling sensation. The weak current inhibits the secretion of the sweat glands whithout damaging the glands themselves. In the armpits the current is applicated via wet sponge electrodes available seperately.
In the early stages of treatment, the affected parts of the body should be treated once a day for about 10-15 minutes. Generally 10 to 15 treatment sessions are sufficient to normalize sweating levels. After that the treatment frequency can usually be reduced to once or twice a week to maintain result.
