If you have venous disease, you may be experiencing discomfort from it with veins being conspicuous to the eye. Some people with varicose veins are reluctant to wear anything that reveals any part of their legs. It affects everyone differently, but most with the condition experience some degree of discomfort. The veins can be as slight as small fiber looking lines under the skin. It can be as severe as big veins that project outward on the skin.
Moderate to severe varicose veins have a disorder where they don't serve their basic function anymore. There's a network of veins that send blood to the deep veins. Once the blood reaches the deep veins, it goes to the heart. A person can have venous disease and not know it because it can be present with little symptoms. Varicose veins is only a supplemental method for blood circulation, not vital. The body has other methods for transporting blood so this condition is not life threatening.

If you have a severe vein problem, you might need Endovenous Laser Ablation at a vein clinic. You'll get a small incision in the area guided by an ultrasound to gain access to your veins. Your phlebologist deadens the nerves in your veins with local anesthesia. The laser fibre is inserted into the vein to react in a way that causes sclerosis of the vein, or collapsing. The recovery time is brief and discomfort after the procedure is minimal. This novel way of removing varicose veins is becoming the dominant course for treatment. Surgery for varicose veins is expected to fall into disuse with these new techniques being so successful.
