Overview

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 and has 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 (your 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.

FAQs

Why should I choose the Aquex over another brand?

Let’s start with the ultimate reason: efficacy.  Many manufacturer claim a rate of effectiveness; if you believe them (ours included), Aquex has the highest claim at 98% effectiveness.  Others have a much lower claim or no claim at all.  We base our claim both on clinical data from medical studies as well as return rates of our product.  There REALLY is a difference in the Aquex device!

The Aquex is also very durable, and holds up over time.  Some cheaper products (in price and in how they are manufactured) made by companies in existence for only 3-4 years, carry a 1-2 year warranty and are made in China.  Aquex devices are manufactured by Hidrex GmbH (Germany), which has been in existence for over 40 years, and have an excellent reputation for quality and durability, carry a 5 year warranty, but they will last many times as long as that.  So you will have a product that will last for years and years, and will be glad you made the investment in your improvement, and will not have to be looking for a new device after a year or two.

From a specification standpoint, you cannot get a more powerful device than the Aquex.  At a maximum of 60 volts, it is the most powerful device on the market. Also, many other models offer you only Direct Current (DC) OR Pulsed Current (PC).  The Aquex offers BOTH DC and PC, as you will probably want to treat different body areas with different types of current for the best balance of efficiency and comfort.  The Aquex is the only model on the market that also has Variable Pulsed Current, to allow even more customization of your treatment for efficiency and comfort.

Add in other features like Anti-Shock Electronics (ASE) and Over-Treatment Protection (OTP), the Current Limitation feature, and we have by far the most advanced models on the market.

What is Variable Pulsed Current?

VARIABLE pulsed current is a type of hybrid current between traditional pulsed current and direct current and is available ONLY on the Aquex.  It allows for the ON part of the cycle (the pulse) to run longer than the OFF part of the cycle (the pause) in 10% increments (for example, ON 70%, OFF 30%).  This allows for more effective treatment AND a better comfort level. It is customizable to the individual based on their preferences and treatment tolerance levels.  This is especially critical in hand, underarm, or face treatments where the skin is more sensitive, or for the treatment of children. The Variable pulsed current measurement is defined as a pulse-width.  Let’s look at how this compares to traditional pulsed current and direct current:

With increasing percentages of the pulse-width, the length of the pulse is increased and the length of the pause is decreased accordingly.  Due to the shorter pause, more current than traditional pulsed current is applied    The variable pulse-widths of the Aquex allows adjustments in 10% increments between the more sensitive pulsed current and the stronger direct current .   The following chart shows how treatment efficiency increases as pulse-width increases.

I have hyperhidrosis of the hands and feet, can I treat them both at the same time?

Yes, but Daavlin advises against it.  Due to the differences in sensitivity, we recommend treating each area separately.  Doing so will ensure that each treatment is delivered at an effective dose that is appropriate for that area.

How long do the electrodes last?

Electrodes typically last 2 years or longer.
