Water Retention

Water Retention

It is a term widely used by the general population. Water retention does not reflect a medical entity. Many conditions that cause swelling of the legs could be wrongly interpreted as “water retention” such as Venous insufficiency, Varicose veins, Venous Thrombosis, Lymphedema, Fatty Edema (Lipedema), Overweight, Cellulite, Thyroid gland dysfunction .... A skilled medical opinion by a specialist in the field of venous disease will identify your specific disorder and prescribe the appropriate treatment.

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.
