Are Varicose Veins Always Visible?


Can I Hide My Varicose Veins?

When patients first develop varicose veins, they often wonder if their veins will always look as bulging and swollen, as well as how to appear their appearance.

Learn how our team at Albert Vein Institute can help you improve your vein condition and help you feel more confident.

Can Varicose Be Invisible?

According to the American Heart Association, varicose veins occur in about 30 percent of adults — affecting over 20 million women and over 10 million men between 40-80 years of age. Varicose veins are weaker, thinner, and present themselves as thick, twisted, cord-like tubing underneath your skin. However, the early stages of varicose veins don’t always show themselves on the surface of your skin, so it’s best to keep an eye out for other symptoms of vein disease besides simply visible veins.

Other symptoms of varicose veins include:

  • Cramping
  • Swelling
  • Heaviness
  • Restlessness
