Certified medical leech, small size, the so-called cosmetic leech, which weighs about 0.5 grams, is suitable for use on the face, visible parts of the body mostly for women and for children. The leech leaves only small scars that heal very quickly. Due to the size of the leech (and combined with the medium-size leeches, which is a good complement), for cosmetic reasons in therapy we do not have to avoid any locations on the patient’s body.
If you want to use leech therapy for varicose veins, or for a patient in weight and height above the average, we recommend to use large medical leeches.
If you want to use the leech therapy for animal, we recommend to use leeches of a free range that are more affordable.
