Varicose veins and couperose
Varicose veins and spider veins can also deteriorate if left untreated and lead to complications. Consulting a physician trained in phlebology is an excellent way to treat them.
A varicose vein is a vein that no longer adequately returns blood to the heart. These superficial veins are often associated with heaviness, fatigue in the legs, skin pigmentation problems, itching, edema and varicose ulcers.
Several factors may cause the appearance of telangiectasias on the face such as heredity, sensitive and fair skin, continuous exposure to pollution, smoking, temperature changes as well as sex, as couperose is more frequent in women.
The treatment of varicose veins and couperose is light, non-invasive or minimally invasive and doesn’t require any convalescence.

Frequently asked question
Is wearing medical compression stockings important? Combined with your sclerotherapy treatments, wearing prescribed medical compression stockings and custom-made is highly recommended, as they improve the effectiveness of the treatment and prevent the appearance of new varicose veins.
What is the difference between rosacea and couperose? Rosacea is a chronic, progressive disease that affects approximately 10% of the population. Without treatment, rosacea rarely goes away on its own and tends to get worse over time. Over the years, the blood vessels dilate and lose their elasticity. Their appearance and redness become permanently visible with the appearance of telangiectasias and rosacea sets in. Couperose is a symptom of rosacea.
