Varicose veins are caused by congestion within a vein. These appear nodular and rope-like, usually protruding from the skin. When healthy, veins function as a one-way valve and keep the blood moving to the heart and lung to become oxygenated. When a vein becomes incompetent and congested, it pools the blood in the leg. This congestion causes swelling, throbbing, aching, restlessness in the legs, cramping at night, with itching and burning of the skin.
At Cosmetic and Vascular Suite NYC, our patients have access to several treatment options for varicose veins that are clinically proven to relieve symptoms in most patients. Normal activity can be resumed immediately after these treatments as they cause minimal to no discomfort. All treatments are performed by a licensed physician in a relaxed and professional environment.
