Signs and symptoms

Signs and symptoms

Although many patients have cosmetic complaints, varicose veins could cause disturbing symptoms. The symptoms include leg pain, heavy legs, swelling (or edema), and burning or itchy sensation of the feet. Patients sometimes feel the need to constantly move their feet or elevate their legs to feel comfortable. It should be noted however that these symptoms are absent in the morning. They appear during the day and get worse at the end of the workday.

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.
