MiraDry vs Another Popular Non-Invasive Treatment

Iontophoresis treatment is a medical procedure that uses mild electrolyte currents that pass through water to the skin. This medical remedy is for treating hyperhidrosis as well as sports injuries. When treating hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating, the electric current blocks the sweat glands hence prevent the sweating. The current is safe to your health and does not shock you. When used for treating sports injuries, it heals any inflammation caused by the injury.


How MiraDry Works?

MiraDry treatment is also clinically proven for treating excessive sweating. It does not involve any surgical procedures and takes 1 to 1 and a half hour. The procedure involves the release of monitored electromagnetic currents to the affected area, especially the underarms. The electromagnetic current heats and eliminates the sweat glands as it gives a cooling effect to the area near the skin. This medical procedure provides a permanent solution to hyperhidrosis, unlike iontophoresis which provides a temporary solution.
