Did you know that up to 60% of people suffer from a vein condition? These include varicose veins, spider veins and their associated symptoms and complications. Common symptoms include heaviness, tiredness of legs, swelling and even leg ulcers.
It isn’t just prevalent in women – it is equally a problem for men, but studies show they are less likely to seek treatment until symptoms get worse and complications set in. Varicose veins eventually affect your quality of life and well-being both physically and mentally, in how you feel about yourself and the clothes you choose to hide them.
Varicose veins are a chronic condition and without treatment will continue to progress and worsen. Progression can occur despite not having full blown symptoms but only signs of a bulging vein and scattered spider veins.

Cosmetic or medical? For many years varicose veins and spider veins have been seen as a vein condition that is just “cosmetic” and something that you have to live with.
For some, they may not have any signs of bulging veins but may only have symptoms of heaviness and swelling. Others may not like the appearance as it may be affecting their self esteem, especially causing embarrassment when wearing shorts or even dresses. Many doctors in the past and even currently, tend to tell patients that it will continue to come back despite treatment, so you’re better off not getting them treated.
Stripping used to be the only treatment available for varicose veins, it had high recurrence rates, required general anaesthesia, was quite painful and you had to be off work for at least a few weeks. But new vein treatment has emerged that could signal an end to all this.
For the last 10 to 15 years, non-invasive treatments have been developed and used to treat vein conditions like varicose veins and spider veins. These treatments have very low to no recurrence, do not require general anaesthesia and you can walk in and walk out after treatment. More importantly they provide a 99.8% guarantee that the deeper cause for the veins will be completely treated.
