Vein disease is a common problem- affecting up to 40% of all women and 25% of all men. Normally, blood flows through the veins towards the heart, with valves to prevent the blood from flowing backwards. With vein disease, reflux of blood occurs due to faulty valves, allowing backflow of blood, resulting in bulging of veins.

There are two systems of veins in the leg: the deep system and the superficial system. The superficial veins under the skin drain into the deep veins through the greater saphenous vein (GSV). This vein runs from the groin, down your inner thigh and all the way to your ankle. If the valves in the GSV are faulty, there will be pooling of blood in the veins just underneath the skin resulting in varicose veins. If the greater saphenous vein is not treated in this situation, it is difficult if not impossible to achieve desired and durable results with sclerotherapy injections alone.
