Frequently Asked Questions
About Varicose Veins

Dr Aziz is here to help you feel comfortable about undergoing therapy to remove your unwanted varicose veins, and he takes great pride in making sure you understand treatment every step of the way. Here are a few of the questions we hear most often when it comes to varicose veins.


Question mark

How do varicose veins happen?

Varicose veins occur when veins begin to experience “venous reflux”, which is backward blood flow in the veins. This leads to permanent twisting and blockage, which can lead to bulging visible veins.

What is the best treatment for leg veins?

This greatly depends on the severity of your leg veins. In many cases, non-surgical options like laser therapy or injectable sclerotherapy can work excellently for people experiencing small veins, while larger veins may require surgery. Dr Aziz will examine your veins in great detail in order to present you the best treatment option.

How much will my treatment cost?

After you have your consult with Dr Aziz, he’ll be able to give you a better idea of the cost and whether or not it may be covered by your health fund.

Will my veins be gone forever after treatment?

Even after undergoing a treatment, new visible leg veins may appear with time. While existing leg veins can be removed, it’s not possible to remove the tendency to develop them in the future. However, Dr Aziz can achieve excellent results through vein therapy.
