I purchased the Idromed 5PS and I've had it for 3 years and its been a life changer!! I finally enjoy wearing heels in summer/winter with no sweating ! I started out making a diy machine before buying the idromed to see the success and initially it failed because i didnt use it properly and mostly because I overdid it. I can't stress enough how important it is to stay patient as well as try new ways to use it. For example, I don't need a very high setting, only about 6-9mA but i found that my feet actually need less than my hands. either do 6-7mA on my feet for 15 mins and 9-12 mA on my hands orrr I do the same on both but I do 1 or 2 extra sessions on my hands! I'm not totally perfect with sessions and I've found personally that if I do 3-4 sessions consecutively every 2 months I am fine (I live iin Canada so the climate is pretty dry!), I may get a little bit of sweating but its very tolerable and actually its become less of a big deal because I've come to realize many people are not bothered by it much, most of it was my discomfort! Other things I have found helpful was to do it a little more often in the summer as you naturally get sweatier (every 3-4 weeks for me!) and don't forge to USE MOISTURIZER!! Any kind will work and I know that most Hyperhidrosis people would never think to use it but if your skin is not properly hydrated , the machine doesn't work as well and you keep sweating like on the under layer of skin ( Idon't know how to describe it very well but its sort of uncomfortable and paradoxically, just letting your skin be and moisturizing it with something as simple as aloe vera does the trick!

All in all, this machine is excellent, well worth the investment and you can travel with it too!! heads up if you do travel with it, call the airline and ask, it might be better to take as a carry on, I haven't had issues once I bring it into Europe but when I come back into Canada, my baggage has always been delayed whenthe machine has been in my suitcase (its an odd looking device so I understand they check it for security purposes) but it comes back in 3-4 days so I've never had any problems, just the hassle of waiting for your bag!

I hope that covers everything, and big Thankyou to the admins of this page, they are always here to answer questions, fix any issues and provide support usually within 24 hours which is amazing !! Thanks so much Smile

Thank you very much for your post! Very Happy
Just one thing concerning the mosturizer: Of course it's important to keep the skin well hydrated, but just note that some lotions may negatively affect the therapy. In any case it's important to use a cream only after the treatments.
The Current Care lotion is made especially for the iontophoresis therapy care and helps you to optimize the iontophoresis success by keeping suitable skin conditions, but if you have the same effect withh other products without any problems, then everything is perfect Exclamation Wink

Great to hear a success story like this. I'm so glad it worked out for you, iontowoman. I hope it will for me too. How often do you use it nowadays?
