Special offer "The Most Beautiful Summer Legs Come from Zurich"
New in Zurich: a laser with an adjustable focus that can be precisely set to any blood vessel size | July 2020

You can look forward to a completely new offer: In Zurich we can now successfully eliminate ugly leg veins without any restrictions – even in the hot summer months. Dr Sebastian Kreis: "The technique is the result of fruitful Brazilian-German cooperation and combines the CLaCS technique proven in Brazil and the L.O.V.E. technology developed by Dr Ragg for the angioclinic® vein centers. Both procedures are based on the combination of a special laser wavelength of 1064 nm and natural-based sclerosing substances such as dextrose. Their combination achieves a highly reliable effect on the one hand, while avoiding unwanted skin irritation completely on the other. The effect is immediately visible and continues to improve in the following days without any further action by the patient. Compression stockings are not necessary under any circumstances."

At the Medical Tribune's 'Venous Problems' roundtable, Dr. Ragg spoke with Swiss colleagues and made the case for early diagnosis. Dr. Ragg: "In the future, the assessment of venous disorders as an obligate chronic condition must change. After all, the first stages are absolutely reversible, which is something that has not yet become widely known.“ In the specialist magazine ‘Phytotherapy’ (herbal medicine) Dr. Ragg made it clear that medication cannot heal venous valves. Dr. Ragg: "General practitioners should, instead of prescribing vein tonic medication on suspicion, first send the patients for qualified ultrasound clarification."

Dr. Ragg Keeps You Updated: News From Our Video Consultations | June 2020

Dr. Ragg: "A patient, mother of a 2-year-old daughter, told me: 'Yesterday I was in a clinic in Zurich and had my legs examined. I have a visible varicose vein on my right calf, which disturbs me a lot. The doctor told me that it could only be operated. The varicose vein would be too crooked for laser treatment and that foam sclerotherapy would go directly into the brain and cause epilepsy'. I'm afraid this is a typical consultation. A doctor can only ever say what he thinks – and in this case the doctor thought that he would most likely have to operate. Unfortunately, this is almost always to the detriment of the patient. Nowadays every varicose vein can be treated much more effectively without surgery, and often the veins are even curable. More effectively means much less risk, much less or no pain, no anaesthesia, immediate ability to work and do sports, better aesthetic results and above all long-term protection against relapse".
