What is the Aquex system?
Technically speaking, Aquex is a “tap water lontophoresis” (TWI) system. While there are many treatment methods available for hyperhidrosis, TWI is widely considered to be one of the most effective, safest, and cost-effective treatment options available. It has been used to effectively manage hyperhidrosis for over 40 years.
TWI is drug-free, safe and proven to have an effectiveness of 98% for hyperhidrosis sufferers. There is only a moderate initial cost for the device with very little maintenance. Ongoing costs are minimal.
Hyperhidrosis can affect many parts of the body. No matter where, Aquex is the answer!
The palms, the feet, even under the arms! So how does it work? A TWI treatment consists of introducing the treatment area (hands or feet, for example) to water which has a mild and safe electrical current for short periods of time.
The initial treatment phase consists of about three treatments per week. Treatments only take about fifteen minutes and a reduction of symptoms will begin after just a few uses. After completing a regimen of about ten regular treatments, a maintenance phase of one or two treatments per week will help prevent symptoms from returning.
