TREATMENT AGAINST HEAVY LEGS AND WATER RETENTION
Improved circulation and the drainage of tissue
The feeling of heaviness in the legs is related to poor blood circulation in the veins (venous insufficiency). It is sometimes accompanied by cramps, tingling or edema. With time, this condition can develop into the formation of varicose veins. More common in women, it is brought on by heredity, age, excess weight, hormonal imbalance and a sedentary lifestyle.
Heavy and painful legs, swollen fingers, ankles or feet … These symptoms reflect poor blood and lymphatic circulation. Toxins accumulate in the body, which explains volume variations in the same day or at different times in the female cycle.
The causes? A prolonged standing or sitting position, a diet that is too high in salt, clothing that is too tight or even excessive heat can disrupt the proper functioning of the circulatory system.
In our Photoderma medico-aesthetic clinic, it is possible to treat heavy legs and water retention effectively with the following treatments.
