Lower Limb Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are dilated superficial veins or “broken vessels” over the lower limbs and have the appearance of visible thin red, purple or blue vessels which are easily perceived on our feet, over time.

The Treatment that is recommended by the Dermatologist Dr. Nektarios Logaras, for the Lower Limb Varicose Veins Includes:

The small (<3 mm, spider veins) Arachnoid Varicose Veins are treated with Laser and the larger than 3 mm are treated with Sclerotherapy that involves the injection of a solution directly into the vein.
