In a cozy home setting, a young woman sits contentedly,she addresses her palmar (hands) hyperhidrosis using RA Fischer Co.'s original metal-free iontophoresis device, "The Fischer." Her hands are immersed in the white water bath trays, complete with blue pH-balancing foam and silicone-graphite electrodes, representing a comprehensive and effective approach to managing her condition.

The Lifetime Ownership Cost of an Iontophoresis Device

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common condition that can be embarrassing and disruptive to daily life.

One treatment option for hyperhidrosis is iontophoresis, a non-invasive technique that uses a low-voltage electrical current to disrupt the sweat gland activity. While iontophoresis is an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis, it is important to consider the lifetime cost of ownership of the device.

The initial cost of an iontophoresis device can vary depending on the brand and features. Additionally, there may be additional costs for accessories such as replacement electrodes (for metal based iontophoresis machines) or towels.


If you have purchased a metal-based iontophoresis device, you will need to factor in the cost of ongoing maintenance and replacement. The aluminum or stainless steel electrodes on the device will need to be replaced periodically, with most manufacturers recommending replacement every three to six months. This can add an additional cost of $50 to $100 per year. In addition to the cost of replacement metal electrodes, you will also need to consider the cost of the towels and batteries used during iontophoresis treatments.


Unlike "traditional" iontophoresis devices, The Fischer is a metal-free iontophoresis option, with non-corrosive silicone-graphite electrodes. This means no replacement costs for corroding metal electrode plates.


The one-time out-of-pocket cost for The Fischer varies according to the areas being treated and each patient’s insurance policy. Our Treatment Specialists can help review your options with you.
