MANY people suffer from unsightly varicose veins, but what exactly are they?
Trinidad Sanchez Fuentes from QUPA who has clinics in Los Montesinos and Altea, explains...
“Varicose veins are diseased veins that are not fulfilling their function of allowing blood to flow sufficiently. When the blood is not able to be pumped back to the heart it builds up in the veins making them become enlarged and twisted.
“They occur mainly in the Superficial Venous System, a network of veins whose main function is not only the transport of blood, but cooling. They are veins that circulate under the skin, open to remove heat and close with the cold. When they are healthy it helps maintain proper body temperature. When removed or rendered useless, circulation is affected.
“The veins on the skin are like a network in which there is always another exit at the next junction, where blood can find a way out and takes another parallel path, but if the loss of veins is abundant and continuous, parallel veins may overgrow and facilitate the future emergence of new varicose veins.”
The condition can lead to aching, heavy legs and cramp, but now treatment is available.
At Clinica Mejorate, their treatment system is a combination of injectable products including vitamins and nutrients, called ‘Blastoestimulacion.’
Its main active agent is Polidocanol, the only ingredient authorised under Spanish legislation. The agent provokes a reaction in the vein causing it to shrink and in time, appear normal once again.
The treatment involves no surgery and no anaesthetic, so there is no overnight stay in hospital or post-operative pain. It is a simple and quick procedure that produces successful results.
