VARICOSE VEINS LASER TREATMENT
What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are typically enlarged, swollen, and twisting veins, often these veins appears blue or dark purple in color unlike the normal veins. Varicose veins happens as a result of faulty valves in the veins and these veins allow blood to flow in the wrong direction.
Why it happens?
Arteries carry blood from heart to the rest of the tissues in the body. However, Veins return the blood from the rest of body back to the heart, in order for the blood to recirculation. Therefore, for the blood to return to the heart, the veins of the legs must work against gravity, when this doesn't happen the person develops varicose veins.
