  • Find Freedom From Varicose Vein Pain With These 3 Powerful Treatments

Varicose veins can be debilitating, both physically, from the burning, itching, and pain, and psychologically. An estimated 20% of Canadians have varicose veins. For many of those Canadians, varicose veins are a source of embarrassment and shame that keeps them from wearing favourite clothing items or swimsuits in the summer. You don’t have to live with varicose veins; there are compelling and powerful treatments available to alleviate varicose vein symptoms and pain.

Our veins are like an interlocking system of small checkpoints that our blood travels through from our body to our heart. When the gate of one of these checkpoints becomes stuck, the traffic keeps piling up, the vein expands and twists, and blood begins to pool as the traffic jam piles up. Varicose veins can also be caused by high blood pressure, which may weaken the valves over time. These veins may become blue or dark purple in appearance and typically appear in your legs. Still, they can also occur in other areas of your body. You may notice symptoms early in the day that seems to get worse and increasingly feels painful, itchy, and heavy.  

Varicose may appear or become worse due to:

  • Pregnancy or hormonal changes
  • Long periods of standing or walking 
  • Genetics and age
  • Weight disposition



How To Get Rid Of Varicose Veins

There is no cure for varicose veins, as they can return in time without proper prevention measures, but there are effective methods to prevent, reduce or eliminate pain and visible signs of varicose veins. At our Calgary Clinic, we offer three powerful laser treatments to treat varicose veins that afford our patients higher success rates, fewer complications, and a significantly lower recurrence rate.

Compression Stockings

Compression socks are an excellent treatment tool to both prevent and treat varicose veins and a variety of other conditions while also being the least invasive treatment option. 

Compression stockings are ideal for: 

  • Preventing future or recurring varicose veins
  • Minimal invasiveness
  • No scarring or risk of infection
  • Improving blood circulation in the legs
  • Reduces leg swelling 
  • Prevents ulcers 
  • Stops blood clots from forming in the veins of your legs 

Patients can benefit from compression stocking or support stockings for their ability to improve circulation, relieve pain, lower swelling and improve blood flow in their legs. Even if you haven’t noticed varicose veins yet, but you have a family genetic history, are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, you may want to consider investing in a pair of stockings. 

If you are suffering from varicose vein symptoms, contact our Calgary clinic for a free consultation. We offer various Compression Stocking options and are happy to help you find the right ones for you and discuss other treatment options.



Echosclerotherapy, or Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy, is another excellent and minimally invasive option to target and remove varicose veins. 

Echoslerotherapy is ideal for:

  • Deep, hard to see varicose veins
  • Minimal discomfort and few side effects
  • Permanent and effective results
  • Minimal cell damage
  • Quick treatment time
  • Precise and accurate results
  • Reduces the likelihood of nearby spider veins

In just a few short 30-minute treatments, we can target and destroy varicose veins. Even if your varicose veins are not visible to the naked eye, we can use ultrasound imaging to target abnormal veins and inject them with sclerosant to destroy and seal them.



Sclerotherapy is another great non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment that will eradicate both varicose and spider veins. This option is amazing for those small shallow veins that may be unsightly and bothersome. 

Sclerotherapy is ideal for:

  • Being virtually painless
  • Treating smaller varicose and spider veins
  • Short treatment time
  • Results within just a few sessions
  • Little to no downtime

Sclerotherapy is one of the most trusted and popular treatments for spider veins and small varicose veins. If you are struggling with the appearance and symptoms of spider/varicose veins, then sclerotherapy could be right for you. 

We are open! We are happy to announce that our Calgary vein clinic is open. If you have any questions about the costs and benefits of sclerotherapy and echosclerotherapy, contact us today at (403) 253-2555 or fill in our online contact form.



Do only women get varicose veins?

Although women may be more likely or prone to varicose veins due to pregnancy, or hormonal changes, both women and men can suffer from painful varicose vein symptoms. In fact, we carry our Sigvaris line of Compression stockings for both women and men. 

How do I prevent varicose veins from getting worse?

Regular exercise, weight management, alternating frequently between standing and sitting, compression stockings are all great ways to prevent varicose veins from getting worse or occurring in the first place. 

Will varicose veins go away on their own?

Varicose veins will not heal on their own and delaying treatment or a visit to your vein specialist will only worsen your condition and may even lead to more serious ailments.
