Q11. What is ‘iontophoresis?’

A11. This is another treatment for excessive sweating which uses water and electrical current as a means of shutting down the sweat glands which then reduces the amount of moisture produced.

It is a painless form of treatment which can be done at home and helps keep your excessive sweating at bay. It requires you to place your hands in bowls of water through which an electrical current is passed. This current reacts with minerals in the water which blocks your sweat glands.
