My dermatologist ordered me a iontophoresis machine for my palmar hyperhidrosis. Is this something I will need to use every day if it works?

In brief: Yes
At the beginning, you need to use everyday (possibly 7-8 sessions).
Once it works, you can do maintenance, once-twice per week.

In brief: Usually at first
The machine usually needs to be used frequently at first, then less often to maintain the benefit.
