What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are dilated veins that lie beneath the surface of the skin and often a cosmetic concern.. They may represent an underlying condition called chronic venous insufficiency, and are secondary to impaired venous flow leading to increased outward venous pressure to skin veins.
What are the Signs/ Symptoms of Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins appear as twisted, bulging large surface veins with a purple or bluish coloration. They may cause leg heaviness, burning, throbbing, restless legs, pain after prolonged standing, itching, inflammation. However, most individuals remain asymptomatic for years before symptoms manifest.
