The treatment of varicose veins is one which varies and depends on the case, the concept of "golden solution" being very wrong.
Establishing the most effective treatment method must necessarily start with a thorough ultrasound-doppler. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, the root of the disease is established (the vein / veins underlying the disease and causing it) and the parameters of these veins including the diameter of the veins involved, their content (whether or not containing blood clots), the relationship of these veins to the skin and to the other veins, especially with the deep venous system. And after we have all this information we can establish a treatment plan and give a prognosis (what expectations can we get from the treatment).
Treatment methods may range from simple sclerotherapy injections followed by an external laser (if needed), eco-guided sclerotherapy, endovenoses laser ablation, venous occlusion with biological glue, micro-flebectomy ( Eliminating the branches of the main veins through small incisions of about 2-3 mm) or combinations between these methods that are adjusted according to the needs of each case.
These methods have in common that they are all minimally invasive methods, and immediately after the procedure the patient can continue their normal activities, work, travel, and normal life.
In the case of endovenous laser ablation or micro-phlebectomies, anesthesia used is local anesthesia, and immediately afterthe procedure, the patient stands up and leaves, being able to carry out immediately all their normal life activities.
