Normal blood circulation through the veins in your body is assured by tiny valves present inside the veins and arteries, which direct the circulation of the blood. Due to a number of factors, which will soon be addressed, these valves start to malfunction, causing the blood to flow chaotically, enlarging and twisting the blood veins. These misshapen veins are called varicose veins, and they are seen most commonly on people’s legs and ankles. There are some natural factors which are known to cause varicose veins, including aging, genetic inheritance and gender. There are also, however, artificial factors known to cause the development of varicose veins, like obesity and having a daily routine which requires standing up for long periods of time.
Varicose veins can easily be observed with the naked eye, which is how diagnosis is usually made. However, following a physical examination conducted by a medical professional, the patient must undergo a Doppler Ultrasound exam, in order to identify the exact location and size of the damaged vein. For less serious cases, there are a range of clinical treatments which can be used to alleviate the symptoms of varicose veins, including special exercises, the use of compression stockings and the practice of elevating the patient’s feet while in a resting position. There are a range of commercially available medical products which can also help reduce the varicose veins, but that can’t effectively make them disappear. Weight loss is always recommended to those patients who are overweight, and the application of ointments locally helps with cases of inflammation or infection.
When the varicose veins become more serious, your doctor will discuss different available options for surgical treatment of the damaged veins. Radiofrequência para varizes and laser para varizes are the two most modern surgical treatments used for varicose veins.

Radiofrequência para varizes and laser para varizes are minimally invasive procedures, where local and spinal anesthetic can be used.
