The healthy veins have valves inside that do not let the blood, when you stand, go down to the leg again. When these valves do not work properly, it produces a cluster of blood and dilation of the veins, an as result the appearance of varicose veins.
The treatment of varicose veins is the procedure to eliminate veins that have a malfunction so that the blood comes back through the veins that work correctly and improves blood circulation. There are several treatments for the elimination of varicose veins or spider veins.
Treatment of varicose veins with laser or with sclerosis?
Thread veins are very thin and superficial veins in the dermis of the skin. They can be treated by laser or by sclerosis. When it is performed with laser treatment the treatment consists in sending bursts of light to the vein to contract the wall of the vein and close it.
When it is done by injections, it consists of injecting a sclerosing liquid directly into the root of the thread vein so that it becomes irritated and fades with the passing of days.
For the treatment of large varicose veins, the most effective procedure today is the microfoam, which consists of the infiltration of a sclerosing liquid at a higher concentration through a catheter inserted into the vein. Once prepared the microfoam it is injected through the catheter to flow all the way to the varicose vein.
Normally it is done through a relaxation so that the patient is not uncomfortable, since the process is a bit painful. Once the process is finished, we put on a compressive bandage for 24-48 hours. The aftercare is very simple, perform massages with Thrombocid cream and we will review between month and month and a half.
