Varicose veins is the most common vascular disease that occurs when the valves in the veins of the legs are congested and blood fails to go to the heart and stagnates or flows back to the feet. When the blood stagnates, the pressure in the veins increases, and at the same time, the walls of the veins expand, which impedes blood circulation. If there is a problem with the superficial or perforating veins under the skin, the blood vessels become tortuous, and in severe cases, typical symptoms such as pain or skin ulceration may appear.
Risk Factors
  • 1


    As you age, your blood vessels become less elastic, the valves in your veins may weaken, and eventually, the failure of the valves increases the incidence of varicose veins.
  • 2

    Family history (genetic factors)

    If one parent has varicose veins, there is a 30-40% chance of passing it onto the offspring, and 80% of them will be affected by the mother.
  • 3

    Pregnant or obese

    Blood circulation may be difficult due to an increase in abdominal pressure and an increase in blood volume due to abnormal endocrine function.
  • 4

    Bad habits

    Bad habits including crossing your legs, wearing tight clothes, boots, and high heels, etc., can hinder blood circulation.
  • 5

    Occupations that require long standing or sitting

    The blood in the lower extremities does not flow smoothly, and the blood in the legs is drawn downward due to gravity, impeding the smooth flow of blood.
Since varicose veins usually emerge slowly over time, they have almost no immediate symptoms. It is easy to miss the timing of treatment, unless their symptoms visibly appear.

  • · Conservative methods

    When the symptoms of varicose veins are mild, they can be taken as auxiliary means to alleviate the symptoms and slow the disease’s progression. Alternatively, laser radiofrequency treatment may be followed by conservative treatments. These include such as taking intravenous medications, using elastic bandages, wearing compression stockings, losing weight, walking, and stretching.
  • · Cryotherapy

    In the case of varicose veins in the great saphenous veins located on the inside of the thigh or the small saphenous vein located behind the calf, doctors can directly find the vein junction that causes varicose veins and completely ligates it to prevent reflux. This is a varicose vein surgery method that uses a cryotherapy machine to remove the problematic blood vessels below. It reduces the possibility of recurrence and reduces side effects caused by perivascular nerve damage.
  • · Intravascular Laser Therapy (1470nm Laser)

    It is a method to directly irradiate a laser on the inner wall of a blood vessel by inserting a hair-thick optical fiber into the problematic vein. In our clinic, along with the 4th generation 1940nm laser, the laser radiation spreads 360 degrees rather than in a straight line, and a leading wire is used to reduce post-operative pain.
  • · Radiofrequency therapy

    This is a procedure that burns and thus closes the blood vessels that have varicose veins with high-frequency heat at 85 to 90 degrees. After being approved by the FDA in 1999, it has been widely used for treating varicose veins.
Post-surgery guidelines
  • 01

    Some blood may come out from the wounds, but don't worry and take a short shower. The intermittent bleeding will stop after a few days.
  • 02

    Wear compression stockings continuously for 1 to 2 weeks.
  • 03

    If you walk a lot or exercise too much, you may feel uncomfortable.
  • 04

    Drinking alcohol may cause inflammation at the surgical site, so please refrain from drinking for a while.
  • 05

    Elevating your legs a little while sleeping will help you recover.
  • 06

    There may be a feeling of tingling in the surgical site, which will gradually disappear.
