Varicose Veins of Pregnancy

Varicose Veins of Pregnancy

Venous insufficiency symptoms, such as leg pain, heaviness, varicose veins and swelling are quite common during pregnancy. An additional problem may affect pregnant women and that is pelvic varicose veins. Dilated veins appear around the vulva and inner part of the thighs and could be quite disturbing. Varicose veins of pregnancy should prompt the patient to seek medical advice and prevent all adverse events. Proper treatment and follow up are recommended: lifestyle, medications, compression stockings and in some rare cases: anticoagulant drugs.

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.
