Varicose veins can be unsightly and bothersome. Plastic Surgery’s Phlebology unit treats and solves the problems of varicose veins so that you have varicose-free, beautiful legs as before. Varicose veins treatments are always performed by physicians specialized in Phlebology and in a safe and convenient medical environment for you.
The star technique developed in our unit is sclerosis with foam.
It consists of a direct puncture in the vein (under ultrasonic control) or spider of foam of pilocodanol elaborated at the moment. This foam causes fibrosclerosis of the endothelium of the blood vessel (spider or variceal) and its subsequent disappearance. Therapeutic indications are extensive because they can be sclerosed from the red spider, blue telangiectasia to the major varicose veins (both major and minor saphenous veins).
As it is an outpatient treatment does not require the ceasing of daily activities (work, leisure) and nor rest needed.
It is a painless technique and without locoregional side effects (hyper or hypopigmentation of the skin), well tolerated and accepted by patients for their spectacular results both in terms of aesthetics and symptomatology.
Vascular Doppler Ultrasound
It is the only and the most valuable treatment among the different methods on the hemodynamic study of circulation for the different treatments of varicose veins. Easy, fast and performed at the clinic, will reveal any anomaly and / or alteration of our venous system both deep and superficial. It is an advanced non-invasive ultrasound technique that not only provides information on vascular structure, but also allows measurement of blood flow in an area of the body’s circulatory system. It consists of a probe that emits and receives ultrasounds that rebound in the structures as does the sonar of the submarines and transforms them into an image.

The echo-sclerosis of varicose veins with foam under ultrasound control is the international reference technique for treating large-calibre varicose veins of major or minor saphenous and its collaterals.
In the treatment of varicose sclerosis, injection of the foam is done by direct puncture of the varicose vein or by means of a mini catheter (Butterfly). In all the studies it presents better and faster results against the laser treatment.
Is Eco-sclerosis of Varicose Veins a Painful Technique?
No, the pain is equivalent to that of a blood extraction.
How many sessions are needed?
It depends on the extension; it varies from 2 to a maximum of 10.
Is it necessary to wear a compression bandage?
Not in the case of spiders, yes in the case of a varicose vein.
Is it a definitive treatment?
Varicose disease is evolutionary and may appear new ones, hence the importance of annual follow-up and examination
Vascular spiders and/or telangiectasia are small red or blue blood vessels usually less than 2-3 millimetres in diameter. They often appear isolated and, in addition to being unsightly, may be the onset of superficial venous pathology.
Vascular spiders appear superficially, and appear by the vascular failure of some vein that is producing more pressure and is visible through the skin.
Can you sunbathe on the treated areas?
No; during treatment and up to 15 days after the last session.
Can treated spider veins reappear?
No, after the treatment spider veins will not reappear.
The vascular echo-Doppler is the only and most valuable of the different methods for the circulation hemodynamic study. Easy, fast and performed in the consultation, will reveal any anomaly and / or alteration of our venous system both deep and superficial.
Vascular echo-Doppler is an advanced non-invasive technique not only providing information on vascular structure, but also allows measurement of blood flow in an area of the body’s circulatory system. It consists of a probe that emits and receives ultrasounds that rebound in the structures as does the submarines sonar transforming them into an image.
Varicose or venous ulcers are the ultimate consequence of venous return pathology, are wounds that appear spontaneously or after a mini-trauma and do not heal within the first fifteen days. Varicose ulcers arise because of a severe circulatory problem usually in the legs and can cause pain, infection and inability to walk in some cases. The appearance of varicose ulcers often attacks women and can be, in many cases, an inherited pathology that passes from mothers to daughters.
