There are a variety of symptoms related to varicose veins. While the appearance of bulging, twisted, and bluish veins at the skin’s surface is the most recognized, it is possible to have varicose veins without this visible feature. That is why it is important to be on the lookout for other possible symptoms, such as low energy, leg pain, or lower limb heaviness.

When looking back at medical history, it becomes clear that we are living in the Golden Age of varicose vein treatment. Only in very recent years have the primary treatment methods evolved from major invasive surgery to what is classified as minimally invasive. This is a significant advantage for the health, safety, and recovery of vascular patients.
