How To Treat Excessive Sweating with Dermadry | Review + Demo

Dermadry Iontophoresis Machine

We've all been there - sweating profusely during a presentation, following an intense workout or when enduring a heatwave. While sweating is a natural bodily function that helps regulate our body temperature, it can become problematic when excessive sweating is not solely caused by a fight-or-flight response, an intense workout or exposure to heat and becomes an embarrassing inconvenience. The reality is, approximately 20% of the population suffers from hyperhidrosis, the scientific term for excessive sweating, which can occur with no physical exertion or external triggers. In recent years, this is something I have been dealing with, and while I suffer from this on a mild to moderate level, I personally know someone for whom it is more severe and has become a daily struggle. Thankfully, you don't have to rely on strong antiperspirants or seek more invasive Botox injections or even a sympathectomy surgery, as there is an effective and safe way to treat hyperhidrosis from the comfort of your own home, and that is by using an iontophoresis device, a welcomed solution thanks to Dermadry*.

Hyperhidrosis most commonly manifests itself in three bodily areas: the armpits, hands and feet. I mostly deal with excessive sweating in the former two areas, so I was looking forward to experiencing how an iontophoresis treatment could help. Symptoms of hyperhidrosis include having your palms and soles feel very moist (mild case), pearls of sweat forming (moderate case), to dripping sweat (severe case).

Dermadry Iontophoresis Machine

The technology behind the Dermadry iontophoresis machine is quite simple: it uses tap water to deliver a mild electric current through the skin's surface, and this basically "turns off" your sweat glands. It might sound scary, but the treatment is painless and safe (needle-free and drug-free) and is also certified by Health Canada, clinically proven and recommended by dermatologists. The results are not immediate, however, you will start seeing results in as little as 1-6 weeks of regular treatments, depending on the severity of your hyperhidrosis. Then, you can perform more spaced-out treatment sessions to keep you dry.

The Dermadry iontophoresis machine I received treats all three areas mentioned above, however, they also offer "underarms-only" and "hands and feet-only" devices. The devices are meant to be used both during an initial phase and a maintenance phase. During the initial phase, you need to perform treatments 3-5 times a week for up to six weeks to start experiencing an improvement. To "upkeep" the reduction in excessive sweating, it is then recommended to use the device once every 2-3 weeks for mild cases of hyperhidrosis, once per week for moderate cases, or three times per week for severe cases.

Dermadry Iontophoresis Machine

When I first saw the device, I won't lie in saying that it looked quite daunting. However, using it is very straightforward and only requires for you to get some tap water, connect a few wires, press a couple of buttons and sit back and relax, as you will see in the demo video below.

Here is what is included in the Dermadry Total (for hands, feet and underarms):

- 1 case (for storage and also used for hands and feet treatments - it can be separated into two trays)
- 1 controller
- 2 hands and feet electrodes
- 2 small towels (for hands and feet treatments)
- 2 underarm electrodes
- 4 underarm pockets
- 2 cables
- 1 plug adapter
- 1 instructions manual

Dermadry Iontophoresis Machine Controller

The treatment profiles (underarms, hands and feet) on the controller can be easily selected and the current strength and countdown timer are already programmed for each profile, although you can adjust the current strength if needed in active mode. For the underarms, treatment-time is 15 minutes, and for the hands and feet, 20 minutes each. Once the device is activated, the current is gradually increased to the setpoint. The device will automatically pause if you remove the electrodes from your underarms or if you lift your hands or feet from the towel-covered electrode plates and will automatically resume the treatment once you place them back on. The towels and the pockets are reusable and can easily be washed, and you can purchase replacements as well.

Dermadry Iontophoresis Machine Underarms

The underarm electrodes have been soaked in tap water and squeezed to ring out any excess and have been covered by pockets so that the top layer of my skin is protected during the treatment.

Dermadry Iontophoresis Machine Hands

For the hands and feet, the dual-function case has been separated into two for ease of use, towels are placed over the electrodes and tap water has been poured on top and absorbed before activating the device.

Dermadry Iontophoresis Machine Feet

Here are a few precautions to keep in mind: you may experience a slight, painless tingle sensation during treatment, which for me occasionally happens when treating my hands. Not to worry as this side effect is only temporary. You may also deal with dry skin in the treated areas, which is why it is recommended to moisturize after each treatment. If the pockets of towels are not properly aligned to cover the electrodes, you may also experience irritation and skin redness. You may find that you are sweating more following the first few treatments, however, do not worry as with continued use this will no longer be the case and your hyperhidrosis will be a thing of the past. If you suffer from a health condition and are unsure if this solution is right for you, please seek advice from a health professional.

Using the Dermadry iontophoresis device has been quite life-changing, to say the least. I've been using it for almost six weeks and noticed my sweating significantly decrease at the end of the two-week mark. I am currently maintaining my treatments once every other week.


The Dermadry Total is certainly an investment, but considering that you don't have to spend thousands of dollars on in-clinic treatments, it is well worth the price in my opinion. It retails for C$462 / US$349, and you can use code Natalie10 to get 10% off your order!

Dermadry prides itself in being made in Canada and offers free international shipping as well a 60-day guarantee and one year warranty.

If you also suffer from this condition, I hope this post was helpful. Know that you are not alone!

Do you suffer from or know somehow who suffers from excessive sweating?
