Did you know that there is an outpatient medical treatment for varicose veins? These large veins in your feet can cause serious problems if not treated in time. In addition, they affect the appearance of your legs and can cause self-esteem problems. Keep reading and discover how we treat them at Benavides Aesthetic Medicine.
How are these large varicose veins treated?
As an expert in aesthetic medicine, I can offer you expanded information about the Endovenous Vascular Occlusion (ENOF) procedure to treat varicose veins or large blue vein vessels. This ultrasound-guided procedure is a highly effective and non-invasive option that replaces classic lower limb saphenectomy surgery.
ENOF is especially recommended when the varicose veins are very thick or cause significant pain. Unlike other treatments such as sclerofoam or sclerotherapy, ENOF is performed on an outpatient basis, which means it does not require hospitalization or prolonged medical disability.
After the procedure, the patient can leave with bandages on their lower limbs and immediately return to their daily activities, whether work, study or household chores.
The advantages of treatment for varicose veins
One of the main advantages of ENOF is that it preserves the veins, which is especially beneficial. Healthy, functional veins play an important role in the circulatory system, allowing adequate blood flow and preventing the formation of new varicose veins in the future. By preserving the veins, you get beautiful, healthy, toned legs free of varicose veins.
The ENOF procedure is performed under ultrasound guidance, ensuring optimal precision and safety. During the procedure, a special device is used to occlude the affected vein, meaning blood flow in that specific vein is blocked. This reduces pressure on the varicose veins, decreasing their size, and relieving associated symptoms such as pain and discomfort.
Health and beauty in a single procedure
It is important to note that ENOF not only has an aesthetic impact, but also improves the vascular health of the legs. By reducing varicose veins and improving blood circulation, the risk of related complications, such as the formation of blood clots or venous ulcers, is reduced. In addition, the treatment contributes to a feeling of lightness and well-being in the legs, which improves the patient’s overall quality of life.
A prior consultation is essential to determine if ENOF is the most appropriate procedure to treat varicose veins in each particular case. Each patient is unique and may require a personalized approach. At Benavides Aesthetic Medicine we evaluate the condition of the varicose veins, the severity of the symptoms and other relevant factors to recommend optimal treatment.
