Dermatologists

To our valued Dermatology community

Many practitioners in the field of dermatology aren’t aware of the application of Iontophoresis in the treatment of Hyperhidrosis.  The truth is, the manufacturers of these devices have not done a great job in educating dermatologists about Iontophoresis treatment and its effectiveness.

According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society about 3% of the population suffers from Hyperhidrosis.  In other words, this affects about 211 million people worldwide. 

In addition to sharing this fact with us, the International Hyperhidrosis Society also makes the following statement on their website:

“There are a variety of Iontophoresis device manufacturers available around the world, but at this time, the International Hyperhidrosis Society is most familiar with the devices made by R.A. Fischer, which is the sole US manufacturer (and registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) of the plug-in devices.”

Consider some additional facts about the R.A. Fischer line of Iontophoresis devices:

  • Iontophoresis treatment, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, has an 80+% success rate.  Other studies have shown that effectiveness rate at around 85%.
  • We have sold over 6000 units since the mid-1980’s, and we haven’t had a single complaint of any serious side effects, nor has a single complaint been filed with the FDA.
  • Our product is registered with the FDA, and is the only prescription grade device manufactured in the U.S. 

The R.A. Fischer Dermatological Wholesale Program

The R.A. Fischer Company offers a wholesale program especially for those in the dermatology field.  As part of this program, we offer the following:

  • An R.A. Fischer MD-2 unit (offered at a significant discount) for in-office use in which the patient can try the treatment.  If the patient would like to purchase a device for in-home use, we give you the ability to sell the unit from your office. 
  • Unlimited phone support on how to set up and use the machine, recommended settings for patients, and answers to any questions that you may have
  • We provide unlimited direct phone support to your patient, so that if they have any questions, they can call on us.

The only requirement of this program, is that you purchase one unit for in-office treatment and one additional unit for your own inventory (also at significant discounts).  As you sell these units, you can easily replenish your inventory using our Web Portal. 

Alternatively, if you are not interested in selling the device, but simply interested in writing prescriptions for the device and directing your patients to purchase or rent the device from us direct, we welcome the opportunity to serve you and your patients.
