Veins on legs

Varicose veins are enlarged veins which are often dark in colour. They can be found on various areas of the body, however they are most commonly found on our legs and feet due to the increased pressure exerted over time from standing and walking, Varicose veins occur when our veins function improperly. Weakened walls or valves within the vein enable blood to flow backwards, thus causing swelling from the collection of blood.

As we age, our veins can begin to lose their elasticity, especially for women, as female hormones produced from pregnancy, premenstrual syndrome and menopause can relax the vein walls and increase the chances of the valves leaking.

Varicose veins are typically a cosmetic concern, but they can become a medical issue when they are very painful. If you suffer with varicose veins, or any veins on your legs that you would like to see removed, then don’t hesitate to enquire today and book a consultation at Aesthetic Health.

I'm amazed at how quick, painless, relaxing and informative my first ever Botox experience was. Admittedly I've never really had a fear of needles, but the thought of being injected in my face filled me with apprehension.
