The science behind Dermadry's iontophoresis machine
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!
Studies have shown that iontophoresis machines such as Dermadry are very effective in the treatment of excessive sweating. These studies show that success rates can reach 93%1, 98.5%2 and even 100%3 of people treated for hyperhidrosis!
“ One of the simplest, safest, and most cost-effective treatments of hyperhidrosis.4 ”
