So I took a leap of faith and actually bought an iontophoresis machine!! And Hidrex PSP 1000 at that – the one I was writing about earlier in the summer. 😀 Anyway, it's a used machine but is completely functional and as good as new. However, after two weeks of treatments I still have problems getting the best results with it, so I wanted to ask for some help.
My question is: what is the ideal water level for hand iontophoresis treatments? I keep changing this and can't seem to get it right. If I place a smaller amount of water into the pads – just to get my palms wet – then some areas of my palms stay unaffected by the treatments. If I put in more water – to soak my hands better – then my skin gets itchy in places and overall results of the treatments are weaker. I have to use the higher voltage and then it hurts etc. (Typically I use pulsed current at about 70% pulse width.)
How do I keep water level low and at the same time submerge my palms properly in the water?
