The scientific literature shows that the treatment of hyperhidrosis by iontophoresis is the safest treatment compared to the other medical treatments offered (medication, topical cream, injection of botulium A toxin, surgery). It also demonstrates that treatment with iontophoresis is one of the most effective treatments for hyperhidrosis.
Scientific studies report therapeutic success in 75 to 90% of cases. The treatments offered in our clinics confirm these results, approximately 8 out of 10 patients achieve a significant reduction in their sweating.
