How to Treat Varicose Veins?

Varicose vein disease is a deterioration in the structure of the vessel. For this reason, doctor's intervention is necessary for the hein to pass. Products such as cream to be applied through the skin do not affect a vein under the skin. In for the treatment to be effective, intervention must be done directly into the problematic vein.

Varicose Vein Treatments

Varicose veins are treated with methods such as surgery, laser, radio frequency, sclerotherapy, foam therapy, bonding and micro flexectomy.

Varicose Vein Surgery

The aim of varicose vein surgery is to remove the problematic vessel from the body by making an incision. A fairly large incision is opened for this operation. As a matter of course, after surgery, there is a mark that will be quite aesthetically uncomfortable.

Thanks to the development of non-surgical treatments, the application of varicose vein surgery has lost its validity. Thanks to non-surgical methods, treatment can be carried out without the need for hospital stay, anesthetic, post-treatment dressing, and so on.

Surgery is a low-cost treatment of patient comfort. Therefore, it is not a recommended technique.

Micro Phlepectomy Treatment

Micro flexectomy is a micro-surgical procedure developed as an alternative to surgery.

Micro flexectomy method is performed with local numbing. First of all, the area where the vein will be removed from the body is determined. The area is then drugged so that the patient does not feel pain. After that, very small holes are drilled and the problematic veins or veins are removed from that hole out of the body.

No stitches are thrown into the small hole that is opened after treatment. It is closed only with tape and bandages are applied. According to the doctor's advice, the use of varicose vein sock may be required for 12 weeks after the procedure.

Micro phlepectomy can only be applied to vessels larger than 2 3mm. It cannot be applied to capillaries and small-sized varicose veins.

Laser Varicose Vein Treatment

Laser varicose vein therapy was first developed among non-surgical treatments. Thanks to the laser device, both capillaries and venillary expansions on the skin surface can be treated.

Only capillaries are treated with laser technique applied from the surface of the skin. Ven arteries are treated by entering under the skin. For this, a vascular map is drawn. A small incision is made from the appropriate area and entered in the vessel. The desired area is destroyed by laser beam. In this way, the varicose vein is treated permanently.

Radio Frequency Therapy

The logic and application of radio frequency treatment is the same as laser. The only difference is the difference between the energizing of the devices. A radio frequency device is a device that converts radio waves into heat energy. Thanks to its high temperature, it allows problem dams to be closed and treated.

Radio frequency therapy, like laser therapy, is applied by entering the skin surface and vein. The technique on the skin is applied only in the treatment of capillaries. Varicose veins that occur in the veins are treated by intravenous input.


Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical treatment technique. In the treatment, the problematic vessel is closed and treated where it is located without being removed from the body. To do this, a drug is injected into the problem vein, which allows the vessel to be permanently closed. In this way, complaints related to varicose veins and varicose veins are eliminated as dirty blood does not accumulate.

Thanks to the treatment without surgery, it can be easily applied in the clinical environment. It is an economical treatment thanks to its ability to be applied without the need for hospital environment and hospital stay. It also does not affect the social life of patients. After treatment, the patient can rest for a short time and return to his daily life.

It can be applied to all heirs, including large, small heirs and capillaries. For capillary varicose veins, micro sclerotherapy is the same as the one that is injected with very thin ends. For the treatment of large vessels, the drug is applied by reacting with air and bringing it into foam form. In this way, more areas can be treated with fewer drugs. The treatment applied in this way is called foam treatment.

Patient comfort is high thanks to the fact that there are no incision, stitches and anesthetic applications in non-surgical treatments. It is also a permanent treatment due to the lack of risk of resying. Another advantage of not incision is that varicose veins are treated without any trace. In other other years, non-surgical treatments both solve the health problem and do not cause aesthetic anxiety.
