    Varicose veins are abnormally dilated leg veins. This is due to defective valves and back-flow of blood within the veins. Unfortunately for you, it is not only permanent, but it will also progressively become worse.

    The good news is that, the treatment for varicose veins is a lot simpler now. 10 years ago, your only choice is invasive stripping surgery. Nowadays, you have less invasive option like Endovenous Laser Treatment which get rid rid of your varicose veins without surgical incision or anesthesia or hospitalization.

    Varicose veins are enlarged, sometimes bulging veins that appear under the surface of the skin. They are caused mainly due to the deterioration of vein valves that are responsible for pushing the blood to the heart against the gravitational pull.

    Currently, most varicose veins are treated with minimally invasive procedures that are performed in doctors' offices. The two best treatments for the largest of the veins, the saphenous veins, are the VNUS Closure treatment, and EVLT (endovenous laser treatment). Both procedures are endovenous in their approach; that is, a diseased vein is accessed and treated from inside the vein. The VNUS procedure uses a radiofrequency catheter to heat and seal the vein; whereas, EVLT uses a laser proble. Foam sclerotherapy, a precedure whereby a medicine is injected in the form of foam directly into the diseased vein is another approach for treating varicose veins. However, foam sclerotherapy is more suitable to treat branch varicosities, not the largest of the veins.
