Top 5 Myths About Varicose Veins

Myth #5 - There Is No Point Removing Varicose Veins; They Only Come Back

While this used to be true with past methods of vein removal, such as invasive "vein stripping" surgery, varicose veins are generally gone for good with today's modern, non-surgical methods. Laser technology allows us to treat veins which were only removed by surgery in the past. The key also lies in using duplex ultrasound to completely map out the size and location of all diseased veins - many of which are beneath the skin and not visible. Ultrasound is then used to accurately and thoroughly treat the varicose veins. By being able to see these hidden diseased veins, one can eliminate the root cause and prevent most recurrences. No procedure, however, can prevent new veins from forming.

I highly recommend that people have their varicose veins assessed by a phlebologist to avoid complications. With the advancement of medical technology, there is no reason you should be in pain or have to cover up because you don't like the way your legs look. There is no reason to live with varicose veins anymore.
