The most familiar type of varicose veins is those which appear as bluish, twisted veins bulging out beneath the skin of the legs. While these highly visible vessels are the most common, it is possible to have varicose veins that do not present in this manner. The pain and risks associated with these less visible veins are still serious issues.

Varicose veins are twisted or discolored veins, sometimes pushing out against the skin. These veins are often visible in the legs when located near the surface of the skin. Although less common, varicose veins can occur in other areas of the body and they are not always visible. Pain or cramp-like symptoms can also be an indication of varicose veins.

VenaSeal, ClosureFast and Foam Sclerotherapy are safe, tremendous, and effective in-office procedures to treat varicose veins. A diagnostic ultrasound test will be first performed to determine the patient’s candidacy for varicose vein treatment. This will be followed by a detailed consultation with the patient.
