Comparing our home iontophoresis treatment to a Botox procedure is like comparing apples to oranges. While both are fruit – and both solutions work to manage sweat due to hyperhidrosis – imagine if eating an orange required 50 injections. In each hand or foot. Every 3-6 months. And it cost thousands of dollars a pop.
At the Hyperhidrosis Master Class at George Washington University, we witnessed for ourselves what a Botox procedure looks like. Imagine this: you look down to see 50 little pen dots in a grid across your hands (or feet, or underarms, if that’s what where you’re sweating). There’s a series of syringes laid out on a tray in front of you, fanned out like peacock feathers. Over the next hour or so, a Doctor will inject those syringes into the dots you see – one-by-one – while an Assistant moves a stick of ice across your skin. This is how they numb the pain.
For some people, Botox is covered by their insurance. Great! If not, the procedure will cost you anywhere between $3,000 – $6,000 out-of-pocket. That’s not a one-time cost, either. You’ll need to receive injections every 3-6 months.
Iontophoresis is an affordable solution with long-lasting results. RA Fischer Co. works with a variety of insurance providers to get the cost of your device covered. Worst case scenario, our flexible financing option allows you to pay-as-you-go, with payments starting at just $59/month. Plus, we can ship your iontophoresis device tomorrow! Why wait 60-90 days for approval from your insurance provider when you can simply finance and seek re-imbursement? Talk to our Treatment Specialists to learn how.
