Varicose veins can be both unsightly and painful. They can instill low self-confidence regarding the appearance of the legs.
There are many treatments available for varicose veins. When small to medium caliber, sclerotherapy or specialized lasers may be used to scar the vein to prevent future filling with blood in order to make the vein less obvious. When larger caliber, fewer treatments exist and primarily include surgical removal.
