Have you been living with painful, blue, or bulging leg veins? Maybe you’ve noticed the skin texture of your legs has become increasingly scaly and discolored. If you have been living with these leg issues (and many others), because you think they’re “just” a part of the aging process, you couldn’t be more wrong.

Problems with leg veins is a medical issue. Once vein issues appear, no medication, supplement, or lotion can make them go away. Many daily activities put stress on your legs - working on your feet or sitting all day can both be detrimental for your leg health. Throughout our website, you can explore the causes of vein disease and its treatments. Advancements in technology have progressed to a level where health care providers are now able to help in ways like never before. No more vein stripping!

These are common symptoms of vein disease, which can occur in both men and women. Most people live with these symptoms for about 35 years before seeking help and being diagnosed with chronic venous insufficiency (AKA vein disease and varicose veins). Don’t be one of the 1% who waits to seek relief!
