Varicose veins appear as snarled, bluish-purple lines, usually forming on the legs. The condition is caused when the veins weaken. The small valves in the vein lose the ability to push blood back up to the heart. As a result, the blood pools and the vein puffs up and becomes more visible under the skin.
Varicose veins are common, primarily affecting women. More than 20 percent of women develop some form of varicose veins, either during pregnancy or as they age. For many, varicose veins and spider veins (a mild and asymptomatic variation of varicose veins) are simply a cosmetic concern. For others, varicose veins cause severe, aching pain and may lead to more serious problems, such as skin ulcers and blood clots. A medical evaluation can determine the severity of the condition and treatment options.
The Eviva offers state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for patients with varicose veins, ranging from complex medical care to treat or help prevent serious medical problems to cosmetic procedures to reduce the appearance of varicose veins.

Venefit™ Closure Varicose Vein Treatment
Varicose veins can often be unsightly as well as painful to those who have them. The underlying cause of varicose veins is a result of a condition called Venous Reflux or venous insufficiency. This affects the circulation of the lower portion of a person’s body. Veins have tiny valves that help force blood back up to the heart. If the valves begin to fail then pooling of the blood occurs in the legs and the veins become discolored, pronounced, bulging, and swollen.
This condition affects more than 25 million Americans. Untreated, varicose veins can lead to continued circulatory problems over time.
Common Symptoms of Varicose Veins
- Aches and pain in the legs
- Skin color changes
- Open ulcers and wounds
- Weak or tired legs, especially over long periods of standing
- Itching and burning sensations of the skin in the lower extremities
- Swollen ankles and legs "Edema"
The new Venefit Closure system revolutionizes the treatment for varicose veins by using a minimally invasive catheter. The catheter emits radio frequency waves shrinking the vein with virtually no pain producing exceptional results. Treatments can take less than 15 minutes with only local anesthesia.
