Approximately 35% of our population suffer from varicose veins. Varicose veins can lead to leg aching, tiredness, heaviness. Often the long-term problems of swelling, itchiness, leg cramps and ulcers are not recognized as being associated with veins.
Modern-day treatment is usually non-surgical (injections or laser), and greatly improves a varicose vein sufferer’s quality of life.
Most health insurance companies cover varicose vein treatment but not cosmetic (thread vein) treatment.
At Vein & Laser Dr Elisabeth De Felice will see you for each of your appointments to ensure continuity of care.
