Nothing so far

My idrostar arrived and i started using it last Thursday. Today is my 7th day so I'm going to have my 4th treatment and to be honest, I have noticed nothing so far.

Best machine available in my opinion & happy to use on children as it's not mains powered, but just as effective.

Idrostar+ is a great iontophoresis device 🙂

In short:

Worked wonders on my palms and feet, but had weak effect on my underarms.

Idrostar+ left me pretty happy overall. This was my first iontophoresis experience, and to be honest, I did not expect it to work so well. Idrostar seems best for treating palmar hyperhidrosis, and less so for treating axillary hyperhidrosis.

It has some great features - I loved the chance to try out both direct and pulsed current. I actually have the most success when alternating PC and DC treatments in the same month. (Of course, I never use direct current for underarms!)

Excellent portability, excellent features - I only wish there was the option to use it as a main-powered device, because the additional money used on batteries is a bit of a drawback...

I have bought this on e-bay for £220 and haven't had a single regret yet. The range of options on Idrostar+ is amazing - personally I use a moderately strong pulsed current. There is a tingling sensation which can grow unpleasant at times, but it is bearable. The downside is that, if I lower the current, the treatments are not that effective, so I have to keep it up to get the optimal sweat reduction.

Idrostar+ showed fantastic quality so far and I am relieved that finally I have normal palms.


About Author

I have had hyperhidrosis (palms and feet) since my childhood. I have tried/researched almost every treatment for hyperhidrosis over last decade, and in the process have acquired considerable experience that I hope will help others suffering with hyperhidrosis. I am happy to help you in whatever way I can to manage your excessive sweat problem - see the About page for more details and my contact information. Remember you are not alone, and that hyperhidrosis is entirely manageable with informed treatment. Good luck! PS: I recently published all that I have learnt about Hyperhidrosis in my book No Sweat! I encourage you to check that out as I believe its the best resource out there to understand and manage hyperhidrosis without falling for the miracle cures. Will love to hear your feedback on how to make it better.


  1. Thank you for this review. I just bought a four-month old idrostar on ebay for £195 which will be delivered this week and i am praying that this works for my hands. Had to give a horrible wet fish hand shake to someone at work today and was hoping that would be the last one! I’ve heard such good things about iontophoresis so i really hope I will not disappointed.

  2. Hello.
    I bought the Idrostar + and I am generally satisfied. I have seen that there is a small accessory, a kind of remote control that helps to be able to do the treatment in both hands at the same time. I would like to know where I can buy this accessory, as it would be very convenient, as I need help if I want to do the treatment on both hands, as I cannot remove them from the water when the device is on.

    Could you help me please?
