Why Treat Varicose Veins?
Most people seek treatment for varicose veins to relieve discomfort like pain, swelling, itching or tingling and other uncomfortable symptoms. In normal leg veins, leaflet-like valves help pump blood back to the heart, but when these valves don’t function properly, blood flows backwards and pools within the vein. Left untreated, these bulging veins can lead to more serious medical problems, such as venous leg ulcers or varicose eczema. Up to 35% of people in the United States are affected by varicose veins, but treatment typically alleviates symptoms as well as the unsightly appearance.
