The drugs calm the pain but do not treat the venous disease. Varicose stock compression is useful for:

  • slow down the course of the disease and complete surgery.

Sclerotherapy consists of the injection of a sclerosing product, it is injected inside the vein and allows to close it. This sclerotherapy is for small varicose veins, usually less than 3 mm and when there is no vanishing point or "tap" that feeds varicose veins.

This sclerotherapy has certain disadvantages, mainly skin spots. Sclerotherapy can now be practiced with "foam" which consists of injecting sclerosing product mixed with air producing the foam. This makes it possible to have a longer contact between the product and the wall with a better result.

Elastic compression or Stockings

Elastic or low contention with varicose veins. The low varicose vein is fundamental because the decreasing pressure from the bottom up prohibits blood from descending to the bottom of the leg. "Viscal stockings" have progressed a lot in terms of aesthetics and several "small tips" make it easy to wear stockings with varicose veins:
  • Application of an ice cream on the bottom,     
  • Getting down to the fridge,     
  • Wearing the bottom only during the day or the foot-open model "leaving the toes in the air".

The lifestyle is very important, you must:

  • Playing a sport avoiding jumps on the spot, cycling, swimming and walking are especially recommended

  • Avoid jumping (tennis, jumping rope, basketball)

  • Avoid tight clothing and elastic on the leg,

  • Attach importance to diet.

  • Avoid weight gain,

  • Prefer fibers

  • Especially take foods rich in vitamin E (fatty fish).

  • Avoid standing for long periods,

  • Avoid stomping and cross your legs too,

  • Of course, avoid the heat (sun, hot baths, hammam, sauna, hot wax hair removal).

This lifestyle is fundamental whatever the stage of the disease.


It is irritating the varicose due to irritation of the endo-vein walls which adhere to one another and close the vein. They are aimed at small caliber varicose veins that do not have big “vanishing points” and especially when the saphenous vein is not incontinent with its ostium or its path.



           :: It is simple, fast,

           ::It is intended for small caliber varicose veins and spider veins and is easily reproducible.


           :: It requires several sessions,

           :: It often leaves persistent venous cord,

           :: Possible pigmentation and certain allergies.

           :: It’s hard to get a definitive result.

           :: It has recently been improved by:

                    ::The tracking instead of the needle-Doppler Echo

                    ::For sclerosing foam

                    ::It is an excellent complement always necessary when varicose veins operations and, of course, an aesthetic complement.

Varicose vein surgery must always be complemented with sclerotherapy
for the aesthetic result to be perfect.
