Phlebology means the study of the venous diseases. These are diseases that affect the veins of the vascular system. Varicose veins is one of the most commonly known venous diseases on the legs. They are gnarled blood vessels that are often visible through the skin as very small blood veins or larger, dilated vessels that are visible as cords.

This causes more blood flow and the veins expand further. This causes varicose veins. There are a number of factors that influence the development of varicose veins

After the vascular examination, it is known whether it concerns a medical or cosmetic treatment. If it is a cosmetic treatment, you must do the treatment yourself Pay. This also applies to the stockings. If it concerns medical treatment, the costs will be submitted to your insurer.
