Author : John B

Do you suffer from excessive sweating problem? Do you have to wipe your palms often to keep them dry? We all will agree that excessive sweating isn't only a medical situation but it also interferes with our social lives. If you are facing the same situation, then you may have to look for a cure to sweating palms.

Over the years researchers have found many ways to treat the problem of sweaty palms but no other method was as successful as iontophoresis. Iontophoresis is mainly targeted to treat palmer (hand palms) and plantar (feet) sweating. The process is said to achieve over 83% success in treating sweaty palm issues.

How iontophoresis is done

To receive iontophoresis treatments you are either required to visit a clinic or need iontophoresis machines at your home.

In iontophoresis treatment mild electric pulses are sent to the affected area through water. The patient is required to submerge her hands and feet in a shallow tray of water for 20 to 25 minutes when an iontophoresis device has been attached to it. The intensity of the electric current can be regulated depending upon the severity of the problem. At times, medication is also dissolved in the water to treat more serious case of hyperhidrosis.

At the beginning of the treatment, the patient has to undergo the process regularly. The result of the treatment however would depend upon the severity of the problem. Normally, you can expect your hyperhidrosis problem to reduce within a week's time. But if your problem is more acute, then it might take longer to get result from iontophoresis treatments.

Success of iontophoresis

The reason behind the success of iontophoresis in curing palmer and plantar sweating, however, isn't clear. It is believed that the minerals in the water precipitate into your skin, making it thicker and thus stops excessive sweating.

Iontophoresis treatments, however, don't offer permanent solution to sweaty palms. After the treatment is successfully carried out, the patient is required to take good care to keep her hands and feet dry. Also one may need to repeat the treatment once in every three weeks depending upon the seriousness of her problem.

Iontophoresis treatments are particularly popular because of its no side effects. It's a safer option than Botox treatment and sweat gland suction method. Moreover, it is easier to perform and one can also perform it at their homes with iontophoresis machines.

Cost of the treatment

The cost of the treatment may vary between the clinics. However, irrespective of whether you decide to go to an iontophoresis clinic or buy iontophoresis machines, the cost can be high.

Today you can buy iontophoresis machines online, which may allow you to get a good deal if you shop around. You may however concentrate on buying the machine only from a renowned vendor to avoid receiving cheap quality product.

There are plenty of other hyperhirosis treatments available in the market but Iontophoresis treatments are still preferred over the other antiperspirant treatments because it is relatively safe. Pregnant women, people with heart issues and epilepsy however should avoid undergoing the treatment or seek professional advices before committing to it. You may check with your doctor to select the right antiperspirant treatment and research well before undertaking the process.
