Iontophoresis Treatment for Hyperhodrosis

Excessive sweating, medically known as hyperhidrosis, is a health condition which makes one sweat more than what is actually necessary to regulate normal body temperature. This condition is generally caused by overactive sweat glands that are usually localized to specific parts of the body, such as the palms, feet, armpits and face.

In the case of hyperhidrosis, the cause of excessive sweating is generally unknown but there are treatments for this condition.

Non-invasive forms of treatment include antiperspirants that contain aluminum chloride to oral medications that have the ability to block the neurotransmitter which initiates sweating. Another one of these treatments is Iontophoresis, a treatment for hyperhidrosis that is recognised and recommended by the International Hyperhidrosis Society (IHS).

Iontophoresis for hyperhidrosis is actually a treatment which uses water to conduct low intensity electric current to deliver medicine and ions (the electrical charge) through one’s skin which cause the outer layer of the skin to thicken, thereby blocking the flow of sweat to the skin's surface.

Many people have seen great results with iontophoresis and the treatment have been found to be most effective for people suffering from excessive hand (palmar hyperhidrosis) and feet sweating (plantar hyperhidrosis), as they are the body parts most easily placed into the water trays that conduct the ions from the electrical current.

(The American Academy of Dermatology reported a 83% success rate with Iontophoresis for treating people with sweaty palms and sweaty feet.)

Treatments typically cost about $10 per treatment and last about 20 to 30 minutes per session and is performed about three times a week either at a clinic or in the convenience of one's home. Repeated over several times a week, iontophoresis can produce remarkable results to stop excessive sweating of the palms and feet.

Iontophoresis can be used for other conditions, as well. Plantar fasciitis, bursitis, and even cystic fibrosis are often treated with iontophoresis.

Warnings! For women who are pregnant or individuals with pacemakers or metal implants and those with cardiac conditions are not recommended to use iontophoresis.

However for healthy individuals who suffer with hyperhidrosis, iontophoresis treatment can be a lifesaver. These individuals often feel awkward in social situations and feel their lives are limited in many ways. Iontophoresis treatment for hyperhidrosis can take away this awkwardness and allow one to live perfectly normal lives again.
