Troublesome varicose veins can now be treated effectively with new minimally invasive methods!
Varicose veins are veins that appear as bluish lumps called varicosities. They most often develop on the calf, inner thigh and surface of the feet. Apart from being unsightly, they can develop into more serious medical problems. As the varicose veins disease progresses, patients can experience severe aching and pain in the calf that is made worse by prolonged standing. There is also leg swelling, itchiness and eczema over the inner calf or foot. The skin of the affected area may then become dark and thick as well. In extreme cases, an ugly ulcer may form, which can get infected and not heal without treatment.
