Varicose veins are an inherited condition and develop either alone or alongside spider veins – you do not develop them because of crossing your legs. When internal valves lose their seal over time, 1-way blood flow becomes 2-way flow. It is this backward flow, known as reflux, which causes veins to become large and protrude to the surface, creating unsightly and/or painful symptoms such as aching, heaviness, tiredness, restlessness, and itching. If left untreated, this condition can lead to complications that include dermatitis, pigmentation, ulcers, or dangerous blood clots (thrombosis).

Fortunately, the days of surgical removal or “vein stripping” are over. During the past decade, non-surgical out-patient office procedures have been developed to make treating varicose veins a simple, almost painless process. Using endovenous (inside the vein) techniques, solutions or small fibers can be accurately placed using ultrasound imaging guidance which cause the diseased vein to shrink and disappear over time. Instead of surgical and anesthetic risks, scars, and painful recovery, you can walk out of the office after a 30-minute procedure and resume normal activities.
