I was searching online a few years ago and came across a pretty awesome looking video on how to make your very own Iontophoresis device. The thing looks like it has promise, and it already seems that some people are actually getting positive results from it judging by the comments below the video on Youtube.
A lot of people tend to be suggesting that they’re still sweating slightly after treatment, but using a strong antiperspirant should stop any sweat that’s left over. I haven’t personally tried this type of DIY Iontophoresis so I can only go off what others are saying. Though I do use a commercial Iontophoresis machine along with the prescription antiperspirant Drysol and that seems to produce the best results for me.
Remember: You must follow the instructions exactly, particularly with the wires connecting the trays. It is recommended you spend 20 mins on each hand and/or foot, and you should do this every other day for 10-12 days. After that you’ll only need to maintain the treatment every 1-4 weeks depending on your results.
I’m intrigued with this idea of a homemade Iontophoresis machine and I may just give it a go in the next few weeks! If you’ve built and used one of these DIY machines then let me and everyone else know about it by submitting your comments below, I’d really like to hear your thoughts and opinions on this.
Recent update: The current created by using these homemade devices isn’t as powerful as the commercial machines, and the results are unlikely to be as successful as the paid models. You can buy a stronger more effective Iontophoresis machine for as little as $500. If you are diagnosed with hyperhidrosis your medical insurer or health service will usually contribute some if not all the money for one of these devices.
