While attached, the leech actively removes some of the built up blood which eases the pressure within the tissue.

After the leech is removed, the built up venous blood will continue to drain from the site where the leech was attached, which is therapeutic for the tissue. The effects of the hirudin may last up to a few hours. You can tell that it's no longer active when the blood stops draining.
