electrodes work between the device and areas under treatment. Since iontophoresis device is used for a considerably long time, the biocompatibility of electrodes should be considered as well as their durability and functionality.
IontoNorm offers two types of electrodes based on the model you choose: silicone and Metal.
These electrodes are made of stainless steel 316L, a highly biocompatible grade with use in the medical field.
IontoNorm also offers silicone electrodes, which are the latest trend in this application. Silicone electrodes offer many advantages over metal electrodes, including:
– being completely inert
– lack of surface changes
– removing the possibility of allergic skin reactions due to trace elements in metal electrodes
– higher durability
– removing two steps from the device set-up.
For treating the underarms, they offer advantages such as:
– increased comfort due to less weight
– more flexibility which results in better contact with the skin in this area.
*model Origin comes with silicone electrodes, and model Digit comes with either metal (Digit) or silicone (Digit S) electrodes .
