The tests in the vascular area aim to provide an evaluation of venous return efficiency, the presence of adiposity, and water retention.


Vein Check is a simple, fast, and non-invasive test that assesses the efficiency of venous return. Under normal conditions, blood flows into the venous system of the lower limbs within a certain timeframe, which reduces in pathological situations.

This evaluation is important for early diagnosis of venous insufficiency, enabling effective therapy and preventing or delaying the chronicization of the disease.

The test is suitable for both males and females who need a proper evaluation to address symptoms such as pain, swelling, tingling, cramps, edema, and heaviness in the lower limbs, or who have sedentary jobs or jobs that require prolonged standing.

The test is performed using a reflected light plethysmograph that measures the Refilling Time, which is the time it takes for blood to return to the calf after forced movement has emptied it. The instrument emits a beam of light at the calf and has a sensor that measures the reflected light hitting the cutaneous venous plexus. The amount of reflected light varies proportionally with the amount of hemoglobin (and thus red blood cells) present; reflection will be minimal in the case of maximum capillary filling and maximal in the case of maximum capillary emptying. The sensor first measures the resting venous plexus and then, through repeated foot movement, the moving venous plexus. In particular, the test involves three phases:
  • Initial phase: the subject is seated with their feet firmly on the floor.
  • Contraction phase: raise the tips of the feet alternately ten times while keeping the heel on the floor.
  • Refilling phase: return to the initial position.
Venous insufficiency of the lower limbs is a condition often underestimated and considered solely an aesthetic concern. In reality, it includes all manifestations due to difficult blood return from the extremities to the heart, leading to stagnation that makes vessels more fragile and permeable, contributing to the formation of edema, swelling, varicose veins, etc. Factors predisposing to this condition include:
  • Family history
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Pregnancy
  • Excess weight
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Prolonged static orthostatism (jobs involving many hours of standing)
  • Prolonged exposure to heat
  • Lower limb trauma outcomes
  • Follow a balanced and healthy diet.
  • Engage in regular aerobic physical activity.
  • Avoid prolonged immobility while standing or sitting.
  • Avoid wearing tight clothing.
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to high temperatures and/or sunlight.


The cellulite specialist is a non-invasive test suitable for all individuals, which, through thermal mapping, allows for the evaluation of skin hydration/water retention, localized adiposity, circulatory alterations, and the presence of cellulite with characterization of its stage.

Using a temperature probe, a thorough analysis is conducted to prevent, detect, and treat circulatory alterations responsible for common cosmetic issues, restoring the health of the legs not only from an aesthetic perspective.


Body composition is a comprehensive test that allows for the quantitative assessment of body composition, including:
  • BMI (Body Mass Index)
  • Basal metabolism
  • Lean body mass
  • Fat mass
  • Total body water
  • Intra and extracellular water
  • Body weight and anthropometric measurements (arm, chest, waist, hip, thigh circumferences)
  • WHR (Waist-to-Hip Ratio)

 The purpose of body composition assessment is to detect, monitor over time, and potentially correct, body composition and dietary habits in order to take preventive or corrective actions, leading to an improvement in quality of life.

Body composition assessment is a simple, fast, non-invasive test that includes a preliminary investigation of dietary habits, anthropometric measurements, and the use of a bioimpedance scale for body weight measurement and body composition analysis.

Overweight and obesity, distinguished by the biometric data BMI, are defined by the World Health Organization as conditions of abnormal or excessive accumulation of body fat that pose a health risk.

Excess weight is caused by an imbalance between calorie intake and energy expenditure, with a preference for the former, leading to both short-term and long-term health consequences. Genetic, endocrine-metabolic, environmental factors, and the use of certain medications should also be considered.

Obesity and overweight are conditions associated with high mortality rates and are significant risk factors for major chronic diseases, including cardiovascular diseases (especially heart attacks and strokes), hypertension, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and some forms of cancer.

In males, android or apple-shaped obesity prevails (excess fat concentrated in the face, neck, shoulders, and especially in the abdomen above the navel). This predisposes to an increased incidence of conditions such as diabetes, hypertriglyceridemia, and hypertension.

In females, gynoid or pear-shaped obesity prevails (excess fat concentrated in the hips, buttocks, thighs, and abdomen below the navel). This predisposes to a higher incidence of venous insufficiency, knee osteoarthritis, and cellulite.

To prevent the development of overweight and obesity, it is necessary to:
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Follow a balanced and healthy diet.
  • Engage in regular physical activity.
