Excessive sweating is an unpleasant condition, which can be treated painlessly. There are many sweat glands in the palms and feet, and their activity can be reduced with iontophoresis treatment. During iontophoresis treatment, ions in the electrical current reduce the activity of sweat glands. Hands and feet are treated by placing the affected area in a small pool of water through which a galvanic current is conducted into the body.
Iontophoresis treatment is controlled by a nurse. The treatment usually consists of 10 sessions within a period of around three weeks. The recommended treatment cycle is five sessions during the first week, followed by 2–3 treatments during the following weeks. The extent of treatment is assessed case by case and continued if necessary. One treatment session lasts for 15 minutes.
Our nurses will be present throughout the treatment. They will tell you what needs to be done before and after the procedure, and handle the treatment according to your personal needs.

Excessive sweating can also be treated with injections
Excessive sweating most commonly occurs in the palms, the soles of the feet and the armpits. If it is bothering you, consult our experts. The palms of the hands and soles of the feet can be treated with iontophoresis, but we treat excessive sweating in the armpits with botulinum injections only. If you are not sure whether iontophoresis treatment is a viable alternative for you, you can make an appointment with a dermatologist (see the details below) and enquire about other treatment alternatives.
