The no-scar treatment with SONOVEINĀ® using therapeutic ultrasound
SONOVEINĀ® echotherapy represents the only completely non-invasive varicose vein treatment using therapeutic ultrasound and can treat the vein from outside the body.
Echotherapy uses ultrasound waves similar to the ones used during an ultrasound exam. But unlike diagnostic ultrasound, echotherapy uses higher energy waves and focuses them upon the vein to generate thermal energy.2 As the thermal energy is delivered, the vein shrinks and is sealed closed.
If you answered at least one of these five questions with "Yes", Echotherapy could be suitable for you. Ask your vein specialist
Focusses ultrasonic waves to a single point
Similar to diagnostic ultrasound, except the ultrasonic waves are concentrated to a higher intensity to treat the diseased vein
The ultrasound is applied to the diseased vein
The ultrasound wave is focused on the vein causing it to shrink and close
In healthy leg veins the surrounding muscles, combined with the elasticity of the vein walls and vein valves, ensure the blood is transported against gravity from the legs to the upper body.
If the vein valves no longer function properly, or the elasticity of the vascular walls weaken, a so-called venous reflux, a blood build-up in the legs, occurs. This enlarges the vein walls causing varicose veins to develop.
Pain, swollen or heavy legs and skin changes can follow. If left untreated, such symptoms can worsen over time resulting in leg ulcers and other complications.
