Building Your Own Iontophoresis Machine – Pros, Cons
Iontophoresis is a great option for many people who suffer from excessive sweating but they can be expensive. That is why many people consider building their own iontophoresis machines, to cure their hyperhidrosis without breaking the bank. If you are considering building your own device, we have created a list of pros and cons that can help you decide whether it is the right option for you.
They Can Work
The most important pro for building your own iontophoresis machine at home is that they can work. It is completely possible to build one and have it work. Notable bloggers and scientists have built devices that have functioned successfully like the one included in the sweat solver course.
One of the biggest pros for building an iontophoresis machine is that they are affordable to build. You can get a lot of the parts from any hardware store. The most expensive part of building will be the control unit, which will also be the hardest part to build. It will also save you time and money on having to go to a doctor’s office to receive treatment.
Plenty of Options
The great part about building your own iontophoresis machine is that you can build it to provide the treatment you want/need. There are a lot of parts that are interchangeable such as the basin to hold the water. You can truly build the machine that you want. You can also choose whether you want to have a very basic machine without much beauty to it or if you want to build a more elaborate machine that looks like it belongs in a doctor’s office.
Quick and Easy
If you opt to build one of the less elaborate machines it is a quick and easy process. In fact, once you have all of the parts, the most basic machines can be assembled in less than an hour. This is great for the fast paced, modern lifestyle.
Electricity is Tricky
Gauging the right amount of electricity can be difficult. That is why you need to be sure that you use the correct amount, using the wrong amount could be extremely hazardous. Using a battery for an iontophoresis machine that you make at home is probably the safest option, that or make sure you have a properly functioning control unit.
No Certified Testing
Many units that you buy from stores have gone through testing and experimentation to ensure that they are functioning at 100%. They also have been through testing to ensure that they provide the proper treatment.
Lack of Tech Support
A unit that you build at home has no tech support. If something should stop functioning or it doesn’t work when you build it there won’t be a phone number to call to get it working. There might be forums and communities that you can ask online for help.
Lack of Features
A lot of store bought iontophoresis machines have the ability to change the electrical current delivered and to fine tune the treatment for specific body parts. At home machines don’t have this, you only have the options that you build into the machine.
Iontophoresis devices can be built at home but unless you are an engineer there will be a noticeable difference between the one that you build at home and one that you buy from a store. You will be lacking in both quality and appearance. If you do decide to make one at home, make sure that you are very careful with how you control the electrical current that is being delivered.
