Varicose veins are not just a cosmetic problem. They can have a significant impact on your health and how much you enjoy your life. Varicose veins may for example:

  • Cause pain or discomfort

  • Cause itching

  • Cause swelling

  • Cause skin changes that may lead to ulceration

  • Bleed profusely with minimal trauma

  • Increase the risk of developing blood clots

 

Treating the varicose veins can reduce these risks and discomforts.
