Varicose veins can be unsightly – and uncomfortable, causing aching, throbbing and swelling. They develop when vein walls weaken and stretch so blood pools in them, making them bulge and twist. They occur most often in the legs.
Spider veins are smaller dilated blood vessels that create what look like thin red and purple threads or webs just under the skin’s surface. They don’t cause pain, but they can make you feel self-conscious.
At Aurora, we’re pleased to offer a number of treatments for varicose veins and spider veins. They’re minimally invasive – using lasers, injections and other techniques – and are done on an outpatient basis so you can heal quickly.
