I never saw varicose veins until one day when they appeared on my calf. It seemed like they showed up almost over night. I went to my doctor and he told me what they were but he referred me to USA Vein Clinic. The staff there reassured me that it was not serious and very common in women my age. I got a treatment with a subcutaneous laser referred to as EVTL. It was like magic that they vanished. I am glad my doctor knew about USA Vein Clinic.
