For hundreds of years, people who suffered from the pain, the swelling, and the unsightly appearance of varicose vein also suffered from something else… the embarrassment of large, deep, bulging veins on their legs.
You should know that varicose veins can cause a heaviness to the legs, as well as aches, pains, restless legs, night cramps and ankle swelling. More than a cosmetic issue, they’re actually a sign of venous insufficiency or vein disease, a progressive medical condition that can only get worse over time.
In addition, unsightly varicose veins occur in approximately 30% of people by age 20 and in 80% of people by age 80. They occur when the walls of the veins or the valves are weak. Blood is supposed to flow through the veins and back to the heart, but when a valve in a vein becomes damaged, blood pools, flows backward, and puts pressure on vein walls, which causes bulging, painful varicose veins
The good news is that Calcagno & Rossi Vein Treatment Center is at the forefront of using the latest, most effective, minimally invasive procedures to make these ugly, unsightly veins virtually disappear, quickly and painlessly, right in our offices.
