I just use it on the hands and feet and use quite high voltage and I don't find it hurts unless you have a cut in skin in which case I cover it with Vaseline and it then it's pain free.
When I was looking at various retailers websites of Iontophoresis machines there was a bit of conflicting information, some saying to get pulsed machine as it will work better, then another one saying direct current at high voltage is the best treatment option and finally one saying mains operated were better than battery operated as you could use higher currents, however the Idrostar website says that's not true and most people find moderate power good enough. Who to believe?
