        How effective is iontophoresis in treating excessive sweating? How does it work? How much does the treatment cost and what results can I expect? Sorry for the flooding question I am thinking this is the answer to my problem and I am planning of buying a machine.

        Iontophoresis is effective in treating certain types of primary or focal hyperhidrosis but make sure you always consult with your doctor before beginning a regimen of iontophoresis treatments. Usually, the process is repeated three times a week in the beginning. After the initial treatment period when the desired level of sweat reduction is achieved, maintenance treatments must be continued. Patients are switched to a schedule of one treatment each week. To maintain effectiveness, treatments must be consistent and performed regularly before your sweating begins to return because iontophoresis for hyperhidrosis is not a permanent solution. Iontophoresis treatments in a doctor’s office is about $150 to $200 per session.

        each patient is individual but its working greatly. Using ionto you can calm down the sweat glands from excessive sweating for months. If you want to get really good ionto device, take a look for electro antiperspirant. It is my hero since 2017. Still best and saving me from this “wet” problem.

        Yes, is working amazingly, the doctors will still prescribe pills or talking about botox, but the iontophoresis is the best.

        Iontophoresis is really effective in treating hyperhidrosis. It can really help with people suffering from excessive sweating, however, they need to undergo 20- to 40-minute treatment sessions several times per week until sweating decreases to a desirable level. At that point, treatments are scheduled less frequently, usually about once per week.

        Iontophoresis treatments must be done regularly before sweating increases to maintain results. Most people with sports injuries undergo a handful of 5- to 10-minute treatment sessions over the span of a week or two to promote healing. After that point, physical therapy, rest, and proper nutrition will continue aiding the healing process.

        Yes it does. Iontophoresis has been shown to be very effective in treating focal hyperhidrosis that involves the hands and feet.

        I have tried yoga and adapting the way that I breathe and i can verify that it has helped me to keep my panic attacks about my sweating under control. But I still sweat excessively. Luckily, I have managed to control my palmar hyperhidrosis with Iontophoresis therapy. I do not feel like a failure when I am using the Idromed 5 PC device. Iontophoresis works for me and keeps my hands dry. You've got to do treatments everyday without being sure whether or not it's going to work for you. But I kept on with it and then therapy was successful, my hands were dry. Yoga and the breathing are very helpful for me in that they quiet me down and help me get deeply relaxed. I think that the yoga and the iontophoresis are mutually supportive therapies.

        Iontophoresis is most often advised to treat severe Hyperhidrosis.
        It is a process of sending mild electrical current to shut down your sweat glands with the use of a device while your hands and feet are soak in the water. It uses pads for other body parts.
        The treatment will be 2 to 3 times per week and will take around 15 to 40 minutes per session .
        Although there are lots of positive feedbacks, it is still best to consult first with your Doctor before trying this treatment.
        Your doctor's guidance is important when you are planning to buy any Iontophoresis device for your home treatments.
