TYPE 1 - PAVD: 

The varicose veins that are more an aesthetic problem. 

 

We call Type 1 or PAVD -Predominantly Aesthetic Venous Disease - the presence of small varicose veins that are the telangiectasies (spider veins) and reticular veins (microvarices).

The telangiectasies (spider veins) are the small red or blue veins of the skin, with the thickness of a hair. They may be very small or a little larger and they are inside the skin. They present several formats, from small lines to large webs. They can be present in all the lower extremities: the thigh, the leg, the buttocks and, in some cases, in the back.

The reticular veins (microvarices) are larger, longer, bluish, and located under the skin, but linked to it. These veins are frequently linked to the telangiectasies. The association of telangiectasies of the thigh's lateral area with these reticular veins that extend on the lateral area of the knee and reach the leg is very common.

In spite of being a health problem, these small veins they do not cause immediate risks, but they affect the patient's self-esteem. Therefore, the patient usually seeks the doctor for the aesthetic subject. That is the reason why we called this type PAVD - Predominantly Aesthetic Venous Disease. 

They are the small varicose veins of the skin, such as the telangiectasies (spider veins), and under the skin, such as the reticular veins (microvarices). Although it is not a health problem in a short term, it is still a long term disease because some problems may appear, as bleeding, for example.
