Lioton 1000 gel, with its ability to improve microcirculation, provides rapid relief precisely at the site of the ailment. Moreover, the gel effectively reduces symptoms associated with venous insufficiency in the legs, including feelings of heaviness, tiredness, and swelling. The unique gel formula, with its high concentration of heparin, allows for effective penetration of the active substance through the skin. Notably, the use of Lioton 1000 gel carries a minimal risk of side effects.
Active ingredient: Heparin sodium
Excipients: methyl parahydroxybenzoate – 0.12 g, propyl parahydroxybenzoate – 0.03 g, carbomer 940 – 1.25 g, ethanol 96% (ethanol) – 30 ml, neroli oil – 0.05 g, lavender oil – 0.05 g, triethanolamine (trolamine) – 0.85 g purified water – up to 100 g.
Heparin sodium is a direct-acting anticoagulant that belongs to the group of medium-molecular heparins. It prevents thrombosis, inhibits the activity of hyaluronidase, activates the fibrinolytic properties of blood.
When applied externally, it has a local antithrombotic, decongestant and anti-inflammatory effect, improves blood microcirculation and activates tissue metabolism, as a result of which hematological resorption processes are accelerated, blood clots are prevented, and tissue swelling is reduced.
For external use, a small amount of heparin enters the systemic circulation, without exerting a systemic effect, without causing any changes in blood coagulation parameters. It does not cross the placental barrier.
Skin allergic reactions, hyperemia of the skin.
It should not be used for bleeding, the presence of purulent processes, applied to open wounds and mucous membranes (to avoid systemic resorption). With great care used in hemorrhagic processes.
superficial vein diseases: varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency and related complications (thrombophlebitis, periphlebitis); blunt injuries and bruises of soft tissues; subcutaneous hematomas, including hematomas after vein surgery, phlebectomy; localized infiltrates and swelling of soft tissues.
f you have a known increased sensitivity to the components of the gel or if you have ulcerative necrotic changes in the skin at the intended application sites, you should avoid using the gel. Furthermore, refrain from applying it to traumatized skin or if you have a decrease in blood coagulation or thrombocytopenia.
It is not recommended to mix with other drugs for external use, they are not prescribed topically simultaneously with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, tetracyclines, antihistamines.
For external use, apply a small amount of gel (3-10 cm) on the skin and gently rub it in. Repeat this process 1-3 times a day, ensuring a thin layer of gel is applied.
In case of localized consequences of injuries and bruises, such as hematoma, infiltrate, or soft tissue edema, apply the gel until the symptoms disappear.
For the initial symptoms of venous insufficiency, such as “severity,” leg pain, and venous edema, apply within 1 to 3 weeks. The duration depends on the severity of the symptoms.
In case of chronic venous insufficiency, including varicose veins, superficial periphlebitis, and superficial thrombophlebitis, apply within 4-6 weeks. The duration depends on the severity of the symptoms of the disease. The need for further treatment is determined by the doctor.
An overdose is unlikely due to the low absorption of the gel components.
