Varicose veins are swollen and twisted veins that are visible beneath the surface of your skin. They are a common condition, and they usually appear in your legs. In the Detroit area, Dr. Rifai performs laser vein treatment to reduce the unsightly appearance of these veins on your legs.
Varicose veins, sometimes called spider veins by mistake when they are just beginning to form, can cause some pain, itching and swelling of the affected area. Varicose veins are caused by blood pooling in your vein instead of moving toward your heart as it should. Many factors affect the development of varicose veins, including:
- Lack of movement
Medical complications could arise from varicose veins, and they can diminish your self-confidence and have you hiding under long skirts and pants. With laser vein treatment, Dr. Rifai can close down the veins that are not working and alleviate any of the symptoms, like pain or swelling, that you may have experienced.
