Scientific studies on Hidrex iontophoresis against hyperhidrosis

Overview of scientific studies on Hidrex iontophoresis devices for treating hyperhidrosis

Tap water ion­tophore­sis (TWI) is a treat­ment method that has been sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly rec­og­nized for many years and can result in nor­mal­ly dry skin in 98% of cas­es. How­ev­er, the exact mech­a­nism of action has not yet been com­plete­ly under­stood. Tap water ion­tophore­sis is believed to inter­fere with the way stim­uli and secre­tion are cou­pled in the sweat glands. It caus­es a post­sy­nap­tic, but reversible func­tion­al dis­or­der, with the result that less or almost no sweat can escape from the sweat glands (cf. Rein­auer et al., 1992).

Togeth­er with the Uni­ver­si­ty of Wup­per­tal and the largest der­ma­tol­ogy clin­ics in Ger­many, HIDREX GmbH was the first com­pa­ny to devel­op ion­tophore­sis devices and suc­cess­ful­ly bring them onto the mar­ket.

Below, we will intro­duce you to the results of stud­ies on the effec­tive­ness of TWI. The inves­ti­ga­tion used treat­ment devices made by HIDREX GmbH and clear­ly showed the pos­i­tive effects of HIDREX TWI treat­ment.
