Compression stockings increase pressure in superficial vessels and fasten the blood flow in deep vessels. They provide effective relief for a wide range of conditions, from tired legs and varicose veins to more severe problems such as chronic venous insufficiency.
It is essential to wear compression stockings all the recommended time after the treatment. As a prevention, they can be worn during long-time standing, sitting or travelling. They can also prevent swelling as well as deep vascular trombosis.
Medication treatment - venotonics
Venotonics are not able to remove varicose veins, but can enhance the effect of other treatments. They can be used especially in summer, when compression stockings are not suitable.
