Varicose veins are swollen and enlarged veins that generally appear darkish or blue purple in your legs. They occur in girls just a bit more often than they do in men, and ten to thirty percent of people have them. They normally appear in the calves and thighs when the veins grow diminished walls or poorly functioning valves, which regulate the flow of blood. You can find many treatments for varicose veins, The aims of treatment are to relieve symptoms, avoid complications, and enhance appearance. A key to successful therapy is properly identifying the inherent veins responsible for the varicose veins and other signs. Laser therapy of varicose veins is minimally invasive, meaning the entry point where your doctor fits the laser is extremely little, not even requiring stitches. For small veins which have become swollen and blocked, ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy can be used to seal the partitions.
