Broad spectrum of applications allows primary treatment of small aesthetically unacceptable varices. It is a chemical method for removal of varices or by other name varicose veins. It is very successfully used for treatment of spider veins (telangiectasias), reticular and tubular varicose veins.
It is a chemical method intended for removal of varices or by other name varicose veins. It is very successfully used for treatment of spider veins (telangiectasias), reticular and tubular varicose veins. One of the advantages is the possibility of performing the application under an ultrasound guidance. Broad spectrum of applications allows primary treatment of small, aesthetically unacceptable varices, as well as an addition to a complex care after a greater surgery or endovascular (e.g. laser) intervention. It is suitable for treatment of relapses. In order to rule out greater veins, an ultrasound examination of the superficial venous system is advisable before the procedure.
A sclerosing agent in a form of solution or foam is injected into the vein during an outpatient treatment. This agent results in a local chemical disruption of the inner lining of the vein, which collapses and the blood inside the vein clots. After some time, the disrupted vein transforms into a fibrous band and eventually dissolves. The punctures alone are made using a venous transilluminator VeinLite with a very small needle, and they are generally very well tolerated. Duration of the treatment is less than 30 minutes and it is possible to treat both extremities within one visit. Treatment of larger areas requires more than one visit., Right after application, a compression bandage using the elastic roller bandage, compression stockings or a combination of both is an integral part of this procedure. Use of special compression aids is possible. Time of compression depends on the size and extent of the treated area.
