The Iontophoresis treatment system delivers a mild electrical current via a water bath for hands or feet.
Iontophoresis is not a permanent solution to hyperhidrosis, therefore ongoing treatment will be required. The exact mechanism of action for this treatment is unknown, however it is thought that the electrical current interrupts the signals between sweat-inducing nerves and sweat glands, thereby stopping the stimulation of the glands.
