I've been treating my hands and feet with the Idromed for almost 6 years now.
Results have been spectacular!
Although my hands weren't 100% dry for the entire 6 years - sometimes, when we get lazy with treatments, or when the plates get dirty, sweating might return - but by and large, my hands remained dry enough for me to function confidently at work.
Over the years, I can confirm that the current is the main factor that determines your treatment success.
Current is affected mainly by the 3 factors:
(1) Duration/Frequency of Treatment - Treatment needs to be long enough/Frequent enough - I need to treat about 5 times/week
(2) Quality of Water - Water needs to be "hard", for me, adding 5g of Epsom salt into each tray works well
(3) Quality of Electrode Plates - The salt causes quicker build-up of patina, so I need to wash the plates with detergent after every treatment, and soak them in vinegar overnight every month or so
I've been using the flat aluminium plates with my Idromed for the past years, and have now recently switched over to the L-shape stainless plates (~ 1 week). Results have been fine so far, but I'll need more time before checking in again to truly verify if effectiveness is the same, at least for me personally.
All in all I'd definitely recommend the treatment to anyone looking for a relief from hyperhidrosis!
I would also like to thank Markus for his really speedy replies and support regarding concerns with treatment. The customer support has been consistent and amazing over the years. Much appreciation!
