Leg Vein Removal
Unattractive leg veins are all too common for women of every age and are a great cause of embarrassment for many. They often appear dark blue or purple in colour and are generally caused by excessive pressure on the legs or stomach caused by obesity, pregnancy or simply standing up for lengthy periods of time. Before non-invasive reticular and spider leg vein removal became available, if you wanted to hide your veins, your only options were to cover them with pants and stockings, suffer through painful injections, or undergo invasive, expensive surgery.
