A varicose vein is a permanent dilatation of a vein that normally occurs in the lower extremities, although it can appear in other areas of the body, and occurs in both men and women. It appears due to an incorrect circulation of venous return and can be due to different reasons: genetic, postural or overweight, among the most common.
Due to the venous pressure that occurs, in addition to a dilation of the deep veins, the blood tries to find new ways to circulate and thus appear unsightly reticular varicose veins, telangiectasias, spider veins and small varicose veins.
What does the treatment consist of?
The aesthetic treatment of varicose veins is indicated for reticular varicose veins, i.e. of small caliber. Sclerosis of varicose veins is a simple technique that, by means of a sclerosing product (Etosisclerol) and the microfoam technique, produces a controlled inflammatory reaction that manages to completely eliminate the varicose vein.
The treatment is completely painless, only a slight stinging is noticed at the moment of the infiltration of the product and in fact, one of its main advantages is that the patient does not require any type of painkiller after the treatment.
Other advantages over other methods:
- It is performed on an outpatient basis
- Minimally invasive technique
- Excellent medical results visible almost immediately
- Low probability of complications
The time of each session is 30-40 minutes, and the patient will wear compression stockings for some time after each session.
Results: look legs free of varicose veins
Depending on each patient will need more or less treatment sessions, depending on the number of varicose veins you have and its extent. In most cases the varicose veins do not reappear, what can happen is that if the patient does not follow the post-treatment and prevention recommendations given by the cosmetic doctor, new dilated veins may appear in the same area.
The best time of the year to perform this treatment are months when there is no heat, between October and April or so.
