Prevention of Varicose Veins and Venous Insufficiency

Prevention of Varicose Veins and Venous Insufficiency

The most efficient way to prevent venous insufficiency and to avoid varicose veins, is to adopt a healthy lifestyle. You need to control the risk factors. Overweight, heat exposure, standing and sitting positions can be managed. Physical activity and sports are widely indicated. Regular exercise such as walking, jogging and swimming are all beneficial for your leg veins. But for most people whose occupations don’t allow much to adopt these changes, the best way to protect your leg veins is to wear compression stockings during the workings hours. For optimal results, stockings should be worn early in the morning and kept throughout your work schedule. Stockings are also advised during long distance travel.

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.
