Reticular varicosities and spider veins
These are the classic domain for sclerotherapy using medication and laser/radiofrequency technology. The main reason for treatment in this case is naturally the cosmetic aspect; however, it should not be forgotten that spider veins are often just the tip of the iceberg and indicate disruptions in other parts of the leg vein system. The Munich Clinic for Leg Disorders has developed a special laser-supported therapy concept in recent years that allows these irritating blood vessels to be removed in most cases.
In order to ensure a good result and prevent unwanted side effects such as pigmentation and minor skin defects, compression therapy is necessary after such treatment for around 12-14 days; this involves the replacement of bandages every few days. Patients can continue to work as normal, and are able to do simple sports and gymnastics without difficulty.
