Varicose veins are large, raised, swollen, twisted blood vessels that can be seen through the skin’s surface. They typically occur more often in women than men, and increase in frequency with age. Up to 25 percent of adults are reported to have varicose veins.
Varicose veins can cause different symptoms in the legs:
- Aching and cramping
- Tiredness and restlessness
- Burning, throbbing and tingling
Beyond wearing support stockings and making lifestyle changes to ease the swelling and pain, there are effective, minimally invasive procedures to eliminate varicose veins, including endothermal ablation, phlebectomy, and sclerotherapy.
