I am only 21 years old but I have painful veins on my left leg. I have had them since I was very young, and they only become worse. They are only on one leg. What is the best option to treat the appearance? Thank you.

You are not too young. These veins can develop at even a young age.
Various options exist for treating nearly all veins. The exact treatment will depend on many factors and should be determined with the advice of your local vein specialist.

You need to see a qualified Phlebologist for a clinical evaluation. Some patients need treatment for varicose vein problems in their teenage years. A few patients have abnormally formed veins at birth which become more evident with time. It is important to have a thorough clinical and ultrasound exam in order for anyone to give you further advice.

You are not too young and it's not uncommon to have varicose veins in only one leg. As far as best treatment, it depends on what your ultrasound demonstrates. I would recommend consultation with a vein specialist.

My youngest female patient was 11 years old and my youngest male was 13. The age of 21 is certainly not too young to be treated. You should have a venous ultrasound for reflux and then treatment with laser ablation based on those findings.
