I get sweaty hands and feet and have for a number of years. At first I thought it happened only when I got nervous but they sweat all the time and for no apparent reason. Would this treatment be suitable for me? Or is there anything else you reccomend I could try? I get embarrased about it as I have to shake clients hands in my profession and don’t even like holding my fiances hand becuase mine is always sweaty.


Sweaty hands and feet can be treated with a variety of modalities. One of the simple ways to treat this form of sweating is a procedure called iontophoresis. It involves placing your hands or feet in water which is electrically charged by an iontophoresis machine. This needs to be done quite regularly initially, and then at longer intervals as more sessions are completed. For more information on iontophoresis, visit our webpage

For a longer lasting result, anti-wrinkle injections can also be injected into the hands/feet. This lasts for about 8 months in many cases. for more information on this, click here;
