Often misunderstood as a cosmetic condition, varicose veins are actually a medical condition caused by faulty, weakened valves that regulate the bloodflow in your veins. Varicose veins form in the legs when blood pools in the veins and dilates the side branches of the veins, causing them to appear enlarged, bulging, and twisted.
Symptoms can include: pain, swelling, itching, throbbing, heavy legs, spasms, skin discoloration around the ankles, and ulcers on the skin around the ankles.
The treatment of venous disease often requires the treatment of primary abnormal veins and the subsequent treatment of the branches (varicose veins and spider veins). With the varicose vein LEG MAKEOVER, Dr. Golshan takes a dual-treatment approach to minimize the appearance of varicose veins and treat the source of varicose veins.
