The Fischer vs. BOTOX ®

Botox® is the name brand for onabotulinumtoxin.

This raises a fundamental question: If you struggle to pronounce its name, should it be a substance injected into your body?

RA Fischer Co. Vs. Botox®




Visit the BOTOX ® website and their side-effects are displayed prominently across the homepage:

“May cause serious side effects that can be life-threatening. Get medical help right away if you have any of these problems any time (hours to weeks) after injection: Problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing, due to weakening of associated muscles, can be severe and result in loss of life. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre-existing before injection. Swallowing problems may last for several months.”

While BOTOX ® injections come with potential serious side effects that can be life-threatening, such as muscle weakening and swallowing difficulties, the Fischer Iontophoresis Device offers a safer alternative with no severe side effects, providing users with a more secure path to achieving dryness.

RA Fischer Co.’s The Fischer iontophoresis device is 100% all-natural and safe, with 9 out of 10 people seeing noticeably drier hands and feet after just two weeks!


The process relies on the organic minerals found in tap water and a mild electrical current to ‘plug’ your sweat pores, creating a long-lasting dryness barrier.

II. Inside the Botox® Procedure

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 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.

III. Botox® and Hyperhidrosis in Children

If you are a parent of a child with hyperhidrosis, Botox® injections are known to lead to muscle weakening. This can cause concern during the sports season.


Plus, kids and needles never really pair well together, from our experience. Compare this to iontophoresis, which doesn’t introduce any foreign chemicals into their young, developing systems.

IV. Insurance coverage for Botox®

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.

The Fischer from RA Fischer Co. is able to be covered by insurance companies. We are able to work directly with many insurance carriers to get the Fischer device covered for patients. Our Treatment Specialists are able to check your insurance coverage and explain the next steps.
