Iontophoresis

NON-INVASIVE TRANSDERMAL DRUG DELIVERY


Iontophoresis as local anesthetic

Iontophoresis is a fast and effective way to apply a local anesthetic without needles or pain. The method is faster and penetrates deeper than topical anesthetic creams and is an ideal alternative for numbing the skin before injections and biopsies. After just 10 minutes, the skin is as numb as after 60 minutes of traditional treatment with creams.

We recommend a Xylocaine topical anesthetic solution, 40 mg/ml. Xylocaine has a positive charge, so connect the anode (red clamp) to the drug delivery electrode.
