Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a common problem that affects 3% of the worlds population. In some cases, there may be an underlying problem causing the condition, such as hyperthyroidism. In most cases, there will be no underlying cause for the problem.

In such cases iontophoresis is a non-invasive treatment to help with excessive sweating, especially of the hands and feet. It involves placing the affected areas in water that has a small electrical current running through it. The treatment is performed every second day to begin with, and then the interval is increased gradually.

The Victorian Cosmetic Institute now offers this treatment for those who are concerned with excessive sweating of the hands and feet.
