Iontophoresis

- The Solution
Dermadry is a home-use tap water iontophoresis machine. This technology works by directing a small current through the skin, effectively neutralizing the connection between the nerves and the sweat glands. In nearly all cases, this effectively treats excessive sweating!


Scientific Evidence

After AFTER
Before BEFORE
A lot of research has been conducted on the effectiveness of tap water iontophoresis in the treatment of hyperhidrosis.

The following clinical studies were performed on patients aged 8-71 years old with primary focal hyperhidrosis (mild, moderate, and severe). These clinical studies evaluated the efficiency of iontophoresis in both in clinical conditions (performed by healthcare professionals in a medical facility) and at home (patients were provided with devices and performed treatments on their own). The treatment parameters were similar in regards to the current strength, treatment duration, and treatment frequency.

Here’s a look at their findings:
  • Tap water iontophoresis treatments improve the patient’s quality of life significantly during treatment.6
  • 92.9% of patients saw results after two weeks of iontophoresis treatments.7
  • 88.9% of patients had positive results, and a majority of the patients found the maintenance program compatible with their lifestyle.8
  • Quality of life improved in 78.6% of patients after 2 weeks.9
  • Tap water iontophoresis is a simple, safe and effective therapeutic option for palmoplantar hyperhidrosis.10
  • Tap water iontophoresis is a safe and effective treatment for both palmoplantar (hands and feet) hyperhidrosis and axillary (underarms) hyperhidrosis in the pediatric population, with minimal side effects.11
  • Tap water iontophoresis is an effective method of treatment for primary palmoplantar (hands and feet) and axillary (underarms) hyperhidrosis in pediatric patients.12
  • The study demonstrates that tap water iontophoresis controls palmar (hands) hyperhidrosis after a total of eight treatments.13
  • Iontophoresis treatment is safe, effective, and easy to use for the treatment of palmar and plantar hyperhidrosis. This technique should be offered to patients with palmoplantar hyperhidrosis prior to surgical intervention or toxin injection.14
  • Tap water iontophoresis suppresses palmar hyperhidrosis. When instructions are followed, tap water iontophoresis is safe for unsupervised treatment of hyperhidrosis. Iontophoresis is a simple, economic and effective therapy that should be offered to patients for control of palmar hyperhidrosis prior to surgical intervention. Iontophoresis is also a suitable alternative to long-term drug therapy. The study demonstrated a success rate of 83.3%.15
  • At present, tap water iontophoresis represents the most effective therapy in hyperhidrosis of palms or soles. Patients with extremely high sweat rates respond to the treatment, no adverse effects were noticed during long-term maintenance treatment, and tap water iontophoresis not only curbs sweating, but also abates other uncomfortable symptoms, such as lividity, edema and clamminess of palms and soles.16
  • We found the treatment to be so effective in axillary (underarms) hyperhidrosis that we would recommend iontophoresisin preference to surgical excision of the sweat-glands.17
  • In our view, tap water iontophoresis is by far more successful in treating hyperhidrosis of palms and soles. In a group of 7 patients, complete relief from excessive sweating was achieved and no treatment failure was observed.18
  • Since 1968, tap water iontophoresis has been employed as the method of choice for treating palmoplantar hyperhidrosis.19
  • In 2014, an FDA panel reviewing scientific data on the matter concluded that “all 8 studies reported that tap water iontophoresis effectively reduced sweating in the majority of subjects treated with [tap water iontophoresis]”.20
