Why treat varicose veins?

Along with aesthetic concerns, there are many medical reasons why you should seek effective treatment of varicose veins

Severe varicose veins can compromise the nutrition of your skin, leading to eczema, inflammation and even ulceration of the lower legs. Varicose veins can also lead to the development of blue veins on the feet, and skin discolouration.

Many of our patients also experienced a number of uncomfortable symptoms including:

  • Heaviness
  • Aching
  • Chronic pain
  • Burning of legs
  • Itchiness
  • Night cramps
  • Restless legs
  • Leg swelling
  • Skin discolouration, rashes
  • Ulcers

In extreme cases untreated varicose veins can lead to Deep Vein Thrombosis – a potentially life threatening condition. Read more about Deep Vein Thrombosis here. 

The vein treatment we provide at Vein Doctors Group has been found to actively reduce or eliminate many or all of these uncomfortable symptoms.
