Varicose Veins

Varicose veins, also known as venous disorder, is a big medical and aesthetic concern for many people. Because of dysfunctional valves allowing blood to abnormally collect in the vein, clients can suffer from veins that are twisted, swollen, and often painful.

This condition is more common than some people think, with up to 55% of women and 45% of men suffering from it. An estimated 3.7 million people in Canada alone suffer from some type of venous disorder. 

Help is available, and Lucere offers a selection of effective treatments that use minimally invasive techniques to provide relief both medically and cosmetically.
