We stay on the leading edge of vein therapy treatment for all kinds of vein disorders including varicose veins and spider vein treatment. There’s a common misconception that only women need to worry about varicose veins. The truth is, 25 percent of men suffer from lower extremity venous insufficiency and associated visible varicose veins. Most have long-standing leg symptoms which compromise their daily routines, with symptoms worsening during the day while they are working or simply living their lives. When these valves malfunction, blood pools in the veins, resulting in a buildup of pressure that weakens their walls and causes them to bulge. Over time, the increased pressure can cause additional valves to fail. While never attractive, it’s more important to note that there can be serious, if not fatal, side effects. If left untreated, these symptoms may progress to a life-style limiting condition.
In addition to the visual appearance, many patients may experience one or more of the following leg symptoms:

Heaviness/Tiredness Burning or tingling sensations
Tender areas around the veins
