Varicose Vein Treatment

varicose vein treatment

About 25% of all women and 15% of all men suffer from varicose veins. Your veins carry blood from the capillaries to the heart; in your leg, this means the blood has to flow upward, against gravity. Consequently, these veins have one-way valves to prevent the blood from back flowing. Over time these valves can fail to close tightly, allowing blood to pool, causing the bulging, twisting characteristic of varicose veins.
