What are Varicose Veins?
The appearance of bulging, dilated and twisted veins that are prominent on the surface of the skin. Most commonly appear on the leg and foot.
In contrast to what most people think, varicose veins are more than just a cosmetic concern. They are not without ‘symptoms’. Aside from an unpleasant appearance, symptoms can include: pain, fatigue, itching, burning, swelling, cramping, restlessness, and throbbing.
In fact, varicose veins appear as a sign of underlying venous insufficiency or venous reflux disease. They can also progress and get complicated if left untreated.
