Under local anaesthesia, small reticular (net-shaped) varicose veins (mostly on the lower leg) are removed with so-called Oesch hooks through tiny skin incisions. Subsequently, vein compression stockings should be worn for at least 2 weeks.
We do not remove truncal varicose veins.
Fine blue or red spider veins are best removed by the Alexandrit or Nd YAG laser. Vein obliteration by means of injections has become obsolete, especially because laser treatment achieves a more satisfactory result.
