Varicose veins are blue bulging veins that typically appear in the thighs and calves, normally developing after childbirth or with age. Common symptoms are aching, pain, burning, itching, and swelling. These are caused by poorly functioning vein valves that allow blood to leak backwards and pool, enlarging the vein. There are many treatment options, including VenaCure Endovenous Laser Treatment, Sclerotherapy, and Ambulatory Phlebectomy.
