Medical treatment

Medications (tablets or pills) strengthen the wall of the superficial veins and allow a better venous contraction, thus improving the upward movement of the blood in the legs.

Laser Treatment

The Vascular Laser is a revolutionary technique aimed at treating the spider veins in a more rapid way and to give faster results when faced with a truly esthetic demand.


Sclerotherapy or “Liquid sclerotherapy” is the most common practice for the treatment of spider veins. It is the injection of a special product in the small veins to close them.

Endovenous Saphenous Ablation Procedures

These revolutionary techniques have completely changed the surgical approach of varicose veins. They have become a true alternative to surgery.
