What is varicose veins?
The veins in our legs are the veins that carry dirty blood to the lungs and heart to cleanse it in the opposite direction of gravity. There are valves in these veins that prevent the blood from collecting downwards. When the valves are damaged, the blood moves downwards under the effect of gravity, resulting in the appearance of varicose veins in the veins.
Large varices: They are clearly visible on the skin surface. Their diameter is generally larger than 5 mm. Surgical intervention is required for its treatment.
Medium-sized varicose veins: They are slightly visible from the skin surface. Its colors are close to green. Their diameters vary between 3-5 mm. They can be treated with sclerotherapy method. The purpose of sclerotherapy is to close the varicose veins by entering the varicose veins with the help of a needle and giving medication. Since varicose veins are not necessary for the body and do not affect blood circulation positively, there is no harm in closing them.
Capillary varices: They are varicose veins with a diameter of 1-3 mm that do not protrude on the skin surface, but are evident in colors such as red-purple. It is the most common problem of varicose veins. Non-invasive laser system is preferred in its treatment. Diode laser technology, known as eraser laser, offers you permanent results. With its special camera in the head, it magnifies the capillary varices 10 times and reflects them on the screen. Thanks to this technology, it is ensured that both capillary varices are targeted correctly and the surrounding tissues are not damaged. The doctor and the patient can follow the treatment process on the same screen and observe that varicose veins are erased. Thanks to the special cooling in the head, the device that keeps the temperature of the skin surface constant prevents pain, aches and burning during the application and provides a comfortable treatment process.
