Laser procedures
The very latest type of vein surgery isn’t a surgical, but rather a minimally invasive method, laser ablation. The method is based on a high level of evidence and has become the industry’s gold standard. It is essentially a procedure, not an operation. No special preparation is required on the part of the patient, the procedure results in minimal trauma and the traces of stitches heal in a couple of days. After the laser procedure, the patient can resume daily activities, walk, run or ride a bicycle immediately. There are no special restrictions.
Laser operations
Laser surgery is qualitatively performed under local anaesthesia, and the patient feels only small, painful punctures with a needle, but does not feel the process itself. Surgery solves both health problems and cosmetic defects. The stem vein is responsible for health problems and is treated with a laser beam during the operation, it is closed and is absorbed and vanishes within a few months. Patients do not feel the process of venous absorption, and the result can only be assessed by ultrasonography, so follow-up visits to the doctor are required after the operation.
Microphlebectomy or vein removal is a modern microsurgical operation which is performed without the use of a scalpel. Stitches are made with the help of variously sized needles, depending on the diameter of the vein, and the vein is removed with special tools through the resultant point incision. From the patient’s perspective, the operation is easy to tolerate, the stitches do not hurt and heal within a few days. Surgery is relatively time consuming and labour intensive, but the patient benefits because of a significant reduction in trauma. Because of its gentle and fast acting cosmetic effect, this method is used both for the treatment of primary varicose veins and in advanced cases.
These days, thanks to microsclerotherapy, the most common problem in phlebology - networking of small skin veins – has been eradicated. This is a procedure in which a drug is injected into the target veins with a needle, which reacts with the vein wall, causing it to disintegrate immediately. The vein is sealed, absorbed over time and vanishes. Innovative technologies illuminate and identify invisible veins during the procedure with the help of a special device, lighting and glasses, and are also used to close them properly. Microsurgical techniques and modern technologies have raised the performance of this procedure to a new level of quality.
Foam sclerotherapy under US control
Foam sclerotherapy under US (ultrasonography) control is a medicinal method designed to close subcutaneous veins. Since is not an operation, but a procedure, is does not involve any special preparation. A special drug is injected into each target vein with a needle or catheter, which reacts with the vein wall, immediately causing it to disintegrate. The vein closes, is absorbed over time and vanishes. Tolerance of the procedure is very good, but oftentimes this is not enough to close the vein along its entire length, and several procedures are required. Treatment is much more effective when the medicine is administered in the form of foam.
Compression therapy
Compression therapy is a method of treatment and prevention that prevents swelling of the legs mechanically and prevents recurrence.

Compression bandages
To prevent edema in the legs, the swelling must be pressed mechanically. The industry gold standard is a compression bandage tied in four layers using a special technique known as the Fisher method, which utilises special low-stretch compression bands. It is worth noting that even if a person knows how to tie this bandage, it is still not possible to put in on properly.

Mechanical lymphatic drainage
Mechanical lymphatic drainage is a means of reducing edema which is becoming increasingly popular every year. In the past five years, a lot of scientific publications have appeared, which have demonstrated the method’s effectiveness, and the evidence is now considered to be reliable (IA). The range of problems for which the method is used in a targeted manner has also expanded.

Compression socks
When it comes to treating vein problems, an important role is played by compression stockings. If the patient’s legs start to swell, compression stockings should be worn regularly. Even if your veins are healthy, but the nature of the work you do means that you have to sit for long periods of time, you are recommended to use compression socks during working hours. Compression socks should be worn for a long time in cases where changes in skin and subcutaneous tissue have already been observed.
