Say Goodbye to Sweaty Hands and Feet with IONTODERMA!





Hi there, my darlings! Do you or a loved one suffer from excessive sweating of the hands or feet? Personally, I get hot very easily, resulting in embarrassingly sweaty palms and several of the men in my immediate family suffer from excessive sweating, particularly of the feet. In a tropical country or during those hot summers, believe me, it's not pretty. It definitely makes family gatherings where it's expected to remove your shoes very uncomfortable. And don't even get me started on the difficulty of getting or doing a manicure or pedicure--sweat and nail polish do NOT mix! But if you do suffer from these symptoms, you may have a condition known as hyperhidrosis and you are not alone! Today, we'll be talking about a safe, non-invasive, at-home treatment for hyperhidrosis known as Iontophoresis with the Iontoderma iD-1000 model.


According to webMD, what is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common disorder which produces a lot of unhappiness. An estimated 2%-3% of Americans suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). Underarm problems tend to start in late adolescence, while palm and sole sweating often begins earlier, around age 13 (on the average). Untreated, these problems may continue throughout life.

One of the treatments for hyperhidrosis is Iontophoresis. Here's what webMD says about this treatment option:

Iontophoresis was introduced over 50 years ago as a treatment for excessive sweating. Its exact mechanism of action is still unclear, although it probably works by temporarily blocking the sweat duct. The procedure uses water to conduct an electric current to the skin a few times each week, for about 10-20 minutes per session, followed by a maintenance program of treatments at 1- to 3-week intervals, depending on the patient's response. Iontophoresis treatments are not painful.


This brings us to Iontoderma and the iD-1000 for treating hyperhidrosis:

Tap water iontophoresis is a treatment for excessive sweating that interferes with the sweat glands just below the outer layer of the skin. This treatment positively treats more than 90% of cases of patients with palmar and plantar hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the hands or feet).

  • Iontophoresis causes no known side effects and its efficiency does not decrease over time.
  • Iontophoresis is the perfect long-term treatment for palmar and plantar treatment.
  • Contrary to cream or medication, tap water iontophoresis machines do not rely on potentially harmful chemicals.
  • Iontoderma iD-1000 treats hyperhidrosis of the hands and feet using iontophoresis

The device itself is very user-friendly and can be set-up anywhere that you have a flat surface--a desk, the bathroom or even your bedroom floor. You just need a power outlet and about two cups of tap water. Everything else that you need is included in the kit. Let me walk you through the components and the set-up.

Each kit contains:

2 PVC, soft-foam mats and 2 stainless electrodes as shown below.




Power supply with extension cable, connectors, banana plugs and a detailed instruction manual. Setting this up is pretty straightforward.




Assembly for a treatment session is equally straightforward. Once you open the plastic case and lay it flat, you lay the electrodes in first and place the mats over them, threading the electrode through the holes in the mats. Then, connect the banana plugs at one end to the electrodes and at the other to the power supply. Add in your tap water and plug in the power supply. That's it! You're ready to go with your first session. Half-way through your session, you'll dry your hands and switch the banana plugs between electrodes--that is, if the red was plugged to the right electrode and the black to the left, you'll simply switch that connection. It's recommended that you go through a daily 20 minute session with 10 minutes on each polarity (i.e., each connection setting). Typically, you should see a noticeable difference within 7 to 10 days. The best part is the device is large enough to accommodate your hands OR your feet, even if you have large limbs.




The final touch is a complimentary hand cream that's included in the kit. After sessions, you may experience hands or feet that are a bit too dry. In that case, this gentle, unscented cream should come in handy! After this, you'll definitely be ready for those cherished mani-pedis!




So there you have it, my darlings! If you suffer from hyperhidrosis and would like to try the iD-1000 Iontophoresis device, you can find it on Iontoderma's HERE for the price of $399--much more affordable than surgical procedures! Worldwide shipping is available.
