VARICOSE VEINS ARE NOT SIMPLY A COSMETIC PROBLEM
Veins are responsible for transporting blood, against gravity, back to the heart and lungs. Varicose Veins are the result of inefficient, faulty valves, which do not close properly and allow blood to leak back with gravity and pool within the vein. This pooling of the blood causes the veins to enlarge and bulge, resulting in a multitude of symptoms and unpleasant side effects such as:
- Aching and Pain
- Tiredness and Fatigue
- Itching and Burning
- Restless Legs
- Ankle Swelling
Heredity, pregnancy, and prolonged standing are the main aggravating factors.
UNTREATED VARICOSE VEINS LEAD TO SERIOUS COMPLICATIONS
If left untreated, Varicose Veins can progress to a more serious form of Venous Disease known as Chronic Venous Insufficiency, or CVI, and more serious complications such as Ulcerations, Blood Clots, and Spontaneous Venous Rupture.
“Given the prevailing misunderstanding that Varicose Veins are only a cosmetic issue, only 1.9 million of the more than 30 million Americans who suffer from Varicose Veins or CVI seek treatment.”
Fortunately, there are now minimally-invasive, innovative and effective treatments to eliminate unhealthy veins. Once the damaged veins are treated, the body re-routes blood flow into healthier, stronger veins, reducing vein problems and improving circulation.
