HIDREX tap water iontophoresis (TWI) for severe, excessive sweating

HIDREX iontophoresis treatment in detail

In HIDREX ther­a­py, a weak DC or pulse cur­rent is passed through the affect­ed body zones. The flow of this elec­tri­cal cur­rent is ensured by a water bath and leads to a reduc­tion in the sweat secre­tion on the areas being treat­ed. The HIDREX treat­ment is car­ried out by hand and foot baths or by treat­ment of the armpits, face, neck, or back with spe­cial sponge appli­ca­tors.

Treat­ment with TWI (tap water iontophore­sis) is sim­i­lar to work­ing out: the qual­i­ty of the results depends on how dis­ci­plined you are at doing your exer­cis­es.

Dur­ing the ini­tial treat­ment phase, only do one 15-minute treat­ment a day and only three times a week. After about 10 treat­ments, your sweat lev­els should nor­malise. After­wards, 1–3 treat­ments a week are usu­al­ly suf­fi­cient to main­tain the results.

The ther­a­peu­tic effect is reversible, so if treat­ments stop, the sweat­ing will resume after some time.
