1. The difference in function:
Compression socks are used to treat varicose veins, vasculitis, venous thrombosis and other venous diseases of the lower extremities.
Stovepipe socks are used for thin legs and beautiful legs.
2. The materials of compression socks and stovepipe socks are different:
Compression socks are medical elastic stockings made of special materials with high elasticity such as DuPont Lycra and cotton.
Stovepipe socks are made of common materials such as nylon silk, so the price of stovepipe socks is also cheap.
3. The units of compression socks and stovepipe socks are also different
Compression stockings are divided into units according to pressure, and compression socks are generally divided into
The primary pressure is mainly to prevent varicose veins;
Secondary pressure is mainly the treatment of mild varicose veins and the recovery of treatment after varicose vein surgery;
The third grade pressure is mainly the treatment of severe varicose veins.
The unit of stovepipe socks is Deny number (D), such as 180D, 240D, 280D, 360D, 420D, etc. In theory, the higher the Danny number, the greater the pressure. But it is not that the greater the pressure, the better the effect.
