Most people notice their varicose veins once they start seeing the bulging veins on their feet and legs.  

A lot of people think that varicose veins are just a cosmetic problem, not until they start experiencing other symptoms like feeling of heaviness, pain, and at times, swelling of the legs or feet after standing for a prolonged period of time.  

It’s true that varicose veins can be a cosmetic problem. There are people who find the bulging, bluish/purplish veins to be unsightly that they quit wearing skirts or shorts even on a nice, warm day.  

You don’t have to go that far. With advancements in technology, you have several options to get rid of varicose veins. 


Why You May Consider Treating Them 

Varicose vein treatment can help in: 

  • Eliminating the symptoms 

Varicose veins are more than just a cosmetic problem. They can cause physical discomfort which may be in the form of painful, aching legs, skin irritation, and leg cramping. Vein treatment  can eliminate these symptoms. In fact, some patients experience an immediate relief to some of these symptoms immediately after the procedure. 

  •  Treating the underlying condition 

Varicose veins can be caused by venous reflux or venous insufficiency. This occurs when the veins of the lower extremities get damaged over time, resulting to poor blood circulation and eventually to blood reflux and swelling. 

 Treating your varicose veins can also eliminate the underlying condition. Diseased veins are removed, causing blood to be rerouted to healthy veins. 

  •  Prevent future complications 

Varicose veins usually start as a cosmetic problem but when they’re left unmanaged, they can cause more serious problems. They can cause permanent changes in skin texture and color. Plus, when you get a nip or cut on the affected site, you increase your risk of developing venous ulcers. These ulcers have higher recurrence and infection rates.
