A patient-friendly treatment method for removing varicose veins when even larger visible varicose veins remain after closing or removing the main vein. Small incisions of 2-3 mm are made in the skin above the varicose veins under local anaesthetic. With a small crochet hook, the veins are pulled out of the skin and removed. The puncture holes are so small that stitching is not necessary. The method gives much better cosmetic results than the old-fashioned method that creates large scars. Cuts are covered with adhesive plasters. After the treatment you will wear an elastic stocking for 1 week.
