You've probably noticed that you're not as young as you used to be. Your legs are starting to feel stiff, and you definitely don't move around as fast as you used to. You have to say, though, your body has certainly gotten lots of use!

Now, however, you have a lot of varicose veins, and it's time that you got some varicose vein treatment. You went to your dermatologist for a consultation, and were in turn asked a bunch of questions. You answered them all as honestly as you could, knowing that your answers would help the doctor to determine the proper varicose vein treatment for you.

The dermatologist then takes not of the rash that has developed around on of your more prominent varicose veins. You said that it had been there for a couple of weeks, and that you thought it can been an allergy. The doctor shakes her head and tells you that it's a good thing you came in for varicose vein treatment when you did, because if that rash had gotten any worse it might have become ulcerated.

She has determined that, seeing as the condition of some of your veins is serious, it could be best to start your varicose vein treatment with laser therapy. You're curious to know what the laser therapy entails. She tells you that each laser pulsation will target a specific varicose vein, starting with the most serious one first. The laser therapy will improve blood flow and rebuild the damaged skin tissue.
