Ask the Doc
Q & A:
A typical question I get asked from patients as a vein professional, is whether blisters and/or scabs normally appear after varicose and spider vein treatment? The short answer is no, but some light discoloration is normal. Scarring and blistering after treatment should never be a concern for patients who undergo vein treatment.
Currently, there are over 80 million people in the U.S. that suffer from underlying venous disease. Therefore, understanding varicose vein disease is becoming increasing important for both physicians and patients alike. As more and more people are beginning to develop an increased awareness of the possible symptoms and side effects of having the disease, one important consideration is whether your doctor is aware.
