Varicose veins in the legs are common in some professions where familial predisposition plays an important role but also needs to stay fast in weight loss, abdominal surgeries, pregnancy, and standing.

Redness after the procedure is an expected side effect. Use redness-reducing and tissue-repairing creams according to the recommendations of your doctor. Ice application is recommended for redness.
