WHAT CAUSES VARICOSE VEINS?
Varicose veins are the result of the valves in the lower legs not functioning properly, causing the blood to back-flow. They basically are leaky valves and do not pump the blood back towards the lungs and heart, causing the blood to pool in the lower leg.
There are many factors leading to varicosities. Standing or sitting for long periods of time, pregnancy, over-weight
and heredity all play a part.

VARICOSE VEIN treatments include Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA). Laser energy is used to target and seal problem veins, reducing and eliminating pain from varicosities. In some instances, a mini-phlebectomy is also needed.
SPIDER AND RETICULAR VEINS are treated with Sclerotherapy, which can also be used in treating varicose veins. Veins are injected with a medication that collapses the vein and it is reabsorbed.
