iontophoresis?

Basically, I read that some people with atrophic acne scars were treated with tretinoin iontophoresis - about twice a wk for 3 mos.

The results were that there was an improvement of acne scars in 93% of patients treated with tretinoin iontophoresis and in 100% of the group treated with estriol (?). Side effects consisted of increased dryness- a plus in my book. The conclusion was that this was effective in decreasing atrophic acne scars.

Has anyone read about this, better yet- tried it? Good luck finding someone who does it. My search only comes up with physical therapists who have the ion machine for other purposes. Wonder if someone would experiment on me? So sign me up- where on earth can we have this done?

Anyone? This sounds really amazing and hopeful. I WANT it, but sounds like I'll just have to find a lab and someone willing to use me as a rat.
