Varicose sclerosis: what is it?
Obvious capillaries and varicose veins are one of the most common blemishes, known as Varicose Sclerosis, especially in the female population. Unsightly marks on the surface of the legs.
However, it is not just an aesthetic problem, these imperfections are often a sign of venous insufficiency, a pathology that affects the circulatory system which, if not properly treated, can become chronic and cause even serious complications.
It is therefore essential not to underestimate the problem and to rely on the consultation of a specialist at the first symptoms.

Appearance of varicose veins and visible capillaries: what to do?
If you notice the appearance of visible and palpable veins and capillaries on the legs, it is important to seek specialist advice immediately with Turquie Santé.
The therapy must, in fact, be calibrated:
- Depending on the extent of the imperfections
- According to the assessment of the degree of severity of the disease and the causes of its occurrence.
In some cases, phlebo-protective drugs can be useful, which strengthen venous tone, improve the activity of microcirculation and the lymphatic system.
Nevertheless, it is good to say, which therapies lead to optimal results against telangiectasias and small varicose veins.
In the majority of cases, the intervention which consists of closing the diseased vessel, called sclerotherapy in Istanbul, Turkey, is the best solution.
Sclerotherapy: treatment of Varicose Sclerosis
As a treatment for varicose sclerosis, sclerotherapy is a procedure to remove varicose veins in an effective and safe manner. In addition to its ability to correct aesthetic defects due to varicose veins, it also raises the overload of varicose veins acting on the circulatory system.
Varicose sclerotherapy makes it possible to inject a liquid into a pathological vein, which demolishes the diseased vessel. This process promotes the reabsorption of fibrosis, accompanied by a subsequent visual disappearance of it. The liquid can be injected at room temperature, mixed with air (sclerofoam),or used at around -40 °C (cryosclerotherapy); this latter procedure is extremely effective since the refrigerated injected liquid intensifies its destructive action on the vessel to be treated.
Sclerotherapy: the most innovative treatments in Istanbul Turkey
Sclerotherapy includes all those minimally invasive treatments aimed at closing the pathological vein/capillary, causing it to collapse and disappear.
In addition to traditional sclerosing treatments, which involve injections of specific liquid substances (generally composed of polydocanol alcohol, sodium tetradecyl sulphate, sodium salicylate and chromated glycerin),there are now innovative sclerosing treatments such as :
- Intravenous sclerosing foam
- Transcutaneous laser
- Photochemical treatment
Optimal results are obtained by adopting the most suitable technique and material for the pathological vein to be treated. The following elastic compression is not always indicated, that is, the action exerted by elastic stockings which, if worn after surgery, help with venous emptying.
Intravenous sclerosing foam
It consists of injecting into the vein, with a very fine needle, a special sclerosing liquid in the form of foam. Compared to traditional solutions, this liquid interacts more extensively and longer with the inner wall of the vein, while keeping the overall amount of drug injected very low.
Another advantage of the foam is that it is visible to ultrasonic ultrasound: this makes it possible to precisely target and follow the section of vein to be occluded.
A very fine ray of light is penetrated with low energy, which selectively hits the vein wall, triggering its thickening and permanent closure.
This treatment is the most effective because it simultaneously exploits both the chemical energy of the sclerosis foam and the photo-thermal energy of the laser, increasing its occlusive capacity.
It is also skin-friendly since it uses low drug concentration and low laser energy. The result is:
- A reduced number of sessions required, generally around 2 to 4 every 15 days
- Faster healing
- A reduction in collateral discomfort (such as pigmentation and hematomas)
To obtain satisfactory results, it is important to personalize the treatment as much as possible, evaluating the one or those, even in combination, that best suit each vein and each person.
Indications for sclerotherapy in Turkey: What price?
Sclerotherapy is, for example, very useful in the treatment of blood capillaries. Indeed, it reduces the symptoms, improves the aesthetic appearance and can be repeated over time. For reticular varices, however, a combination of sclerotherapy and minimally invasive surgery in Turkey is recommended in most cases.
