Phototherapy is used to treat a variety of skin diseases and conditions, most commonly psoriasis. At the SSM Health SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital - South Campus and SLUCare Des Peres, SLUCare dermatologists offer both UVB and PUVA as treatment options.
Iontophoresis is used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) of the hands and feet. Depending on the area to be treated, a patient's hands or feet are placed into water. A gentle current of electricity passes through the water.
A SLUCare technician then carefully and gradually increases the electrical current until the patient feels a light tingling sensation. The therapy lasts about 10 to 20 minutes and requires several sessions.
