Vericose veigns
Hi doc,

I am 30 and already have a huge problem with unsightly veins on my legs. It is due to genetics and bad blood circulation. I have visited the Veign Clinic (Dr Van Vuuren) twice already, but because my problem is increasing as I get older, the injections are becoming too painful and I can hardly stand the treatment.

Is there any other remedies - that work????

Much appreciated

JR, it all depends on how big the veins are. If they are too big for the injections, they are probably big enough to have them surgically removed and the best would be to see a surgeon about it. Good luck.
