Tablets and ointments
Confusion caused by advertising
Many people who are affected by venous diseases automatically reach for ointments and tablets mainly because of false advertising. Don't let yourself be misled by this, as these cannot repair loose, distended venous walls or redundant venous valves.
Compression garments: disease-modifying treatment for venous diseases
Medical compression stockings are the basic form of treatment for venous diseases. They have a defined pressure gradient that gradually reduces from the heel up to the thigh. This mechanically reduces the veins' diameter, the blood no longer pools in the legs and is transported back to the heart.
Ointments and medication: add-on treatment
Plant-based active ingredients such as horse chestnut or vine leaves support treatment and cool and care for the skin. However, once a functional venous disorder has been diagnosed, these preparations cannot replace compression stockings. The ointments must also be compatible with the compression garment material. The skin care range from medi is compression stocking friendly whilst nourishing your skin. The ingredients of witch hazel (seals the blood vessels), horse chestnut (tones up the blood vessels), menthol (refreshes and cools) and jojoba oil (calms and regenerates the skin) complement compression therapy and care for stressed skin.
