Leg Veins and their function

Leg Veins and their function

Veins are blood vessels which allow the blood flow back to the Heart. The ones responsible for varicose veins are called superficial veins. Superficial Veins form a large network of vessels that consist of a principal vein (Saphenous Vein) and numerous smaller veins that are present under the skin layer.

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.
