Say reticular varices can be called a real disease is that a stretch. But cosmetic defect or cosmetic varicose veins (informal terminology), do not pose a danger to life, but creates problems for young girls and women who are especially called even the doctors engaged in the treatment of varicose vessels of the venous system. As for men, they constitute a small group among all patients with reticular varices, moreover, "such a trifle" representatives "of a strong half of mankind," not seeking for aesthetics, they may not notice or, having noticed, not to focus their attention on it.
It should be noted that in the West, the terminology really is no disease, just if at some period of life through the skin of the feet (usually the female) starts viewed spider veins, reticular veins talking about.
So the disease or not? Does it need to be treated and what methods of treatment of reticular varicose veins requires?
The specialists ' opinions differ: some consider the defeat of the small vessels of the venous system exclusively to cosmetic defects, do not consider it to pathological conditions, so not particularly insist on the treatment of reticular veins. Others, however, argue that it still originates from insolvency (failure) of the valves of the veins, so I suggest to prevent and treat all available methods.
Not wanting to intervene in the dispute between experts and take sides, I would like to share a doubt that the absolute health of blood vessels reticular veins is unlikely to occur. And where is the guarantee that the varicose veins that created just the unsightly appearance of the skin in youth is not limited to the superficial veins, will not affect the deep vessels and will not result in a real disease in adulthood with all its consequences and complications?
This type of varicose disease of the veins is called the mesh (reticular veins). Reticular varices are is so pronounced signs of illness as other types of varicose veins. As a rule, it is a "picture", folded small veins and interwoven threads of blood vessels of different colors (green, purple, dark blue). A favorite place of localization of the reticular type of disease – the skin of the lower extremities.
Often reticular varicose veins of the legs occurs in people may have venous insufficiency, which is not yet declared itself because of low severity. Subsequently, the possible progression of varicose veins and increasing the degree of valve insufficiency veins, for what, in fact, built one of the classifications of varicose veins. This classification examines the development of the disease over a long period of time, determines in its progression of six stages, not counting with virtually no symptoms, zero, and, consequently, shares the same classes:
Depending on what changes occurred with venous vessels as a result of pathological change, there are forms of varicose disease: cylindrical, serpentine, or described in the theme option – reticular varices, which occurs with a lesion of the skin veins of small caliber. Unfortunately, most people who have a tendency to varicose veins, there are all forms of immediately.
Thus, reticular varicose veins of the lower extremities represents the first stage of a pathological process called "varicose veins." The disease – there is nothing like a set of irreversible changes in the venous vessels (elongation, expansion, defeat of the walls), arising mainly due to failure of venous valves.
The reasons that motivate the development of valve insufficiency and, as a result of varicose veins, doctors include:
In addition to these prerequisites of pathological changes of venous vessels, can also mentioned active Smoking and poor diet – in this category of people reticular varicose veins of the legs develops more often than those that strive for a healthy lifestyle
Reticular varices in the lower limbs is characterized by an abundance of symptoms. Often it is a single sign – irreversible color change of the skin due to the "pattern" which manifests itself on the skin, created by intertwining threads of small vessels, Yes, transient itching due to exposure to the cold or exposure to allergen.
Among other signs of cosmetic varicose veins include:
Patients usually not associate these symptoms with changes in the small vessels of the venous system, therefore, complaining to his feet and focusing on the signs of their ill health, I suspect most other diseases. The presence of vascular veins from the capillaries and extended surface of blood vessels of small caliber, as a rule, the patients themselves do not take into account and, waving away the "annoying" doctors say: "They have long had, but never caused problems."
To treat reticular varices are trying a different pharmaceutical forms of drugs (tablets, capsules, gels, ointments, creams) that affect the blood vessels of the superficial venous system. The most popular in this regard are:
Meanwhile, to get rid of a cosmetic drawback using only dosage forms almost impossible. Fortunately, at present, the treatment of reticular veins using minimally invasive techniques is fairly simple and is widely used in our country.
Completely remove annoying reticular veins, you can use:
Despite the fact that the first two methods do not leave traces of therapeutic effects on the affected vessels, laser therapy has been and remains the most popular method. Patients not even afraid of the fact that after treatment of reticular veins with laser, in the course of a venous vessel may experience soreness, bruising, and sometimes, after a few days, possibly to increase body temperature. NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs promptly eliminate such minor troubles, but then a new cosmetic defect at this location will never appear. As with other surgeries (big and small) compression hosiery (stockings, tights) and put in the period of rehabilitation after treatment of reticular veins using laser photocoagulation.
The hackneyed phrase "the disease is easier to prevent than to treat it" makes in this case in the first place to put the prevention of cosmetic defects, and then to proceed to the treatment of folk remedies and pharmacy medicines, since to avoid it still failed.
With regard to prevention, in respect of reticular veins to carry it out is not only possible, but necessary, especially if many close relatives have already noted the defect. In order for the skin to bleed snakes elongated and dilated capillaries, you need to:
Become a supporter of proper nutrition and eliminate harmful food cravings;
Many admirers of nonconventional medicine continue to insist on the treatment folk remedies any disease, including and described. No doubt, from ointments, infusions, decoctions, made at home, some good not excluded, but it may be only in respect of symptoms, if they occur (heavy legs, swelling, cramps), but completely get rid of cosmetic defect, to bring the vessels in the initial (healthy) condition like medicine not.
From any varicose veins, in principle, it is impossible once and for all get rid of without the use of minimally invasive let, but the physical interventions or a surgical operation (if no choice anymore), and conservative treatment and is not designed to eliminate all the problems. And pharmaceutical and traditional remedies designed to "calm" the veins, to create comfortable conditions and, thus, to reduce the symptoms of the pathological process.
As treatment of folk remedies used are tinctures of the fruits of horse chestnut, nettle, Kalanchoe. Popular Apple cider vinegar diluted with water in ratio of 1:10 to them before bedtime rubbed the Shin. Some people do packs of sour milk, and noted the relief in the legs and the disappearance of pain.
Meanwhile, the reader will probably agree that when reticular varicose veins diagnosed by a single symptom (the intricate pattern on the skin of one of the lower limbs), and occurring without any other symptoms, to treat a cosmetic defect long and hard folk or pharmacy means hardly anyone will want. Young women who are interested in the beauty of your own legs are likely to look for a clinic that offers to get rid of the problem in one fell swoop, and older people probably won't give value for the cellular network, if the larger veins remained unaltered and do not cause any inconvenience.
