Vein Health Clinic Launches Educational Campaign on Cause of Varicose Veins

Vein health issues are problems faced by men and women, which is why is now offering educational resources and information about how to prevent and treat these problems

Varicose and spider veins are common vein issues for both men and women. These twisted, discolored, bulging and often painful veins are typically found on the legs. While common, many individuals still don’t fully understand what causes these issues, which is something the Vein Health Clinic in Melbourne, Victoria is working to change.

Doctor Peter Paraskevas and his team, are working to reach out and providing information and resources to the public to help educate patients regarding how varicose veins develop and what causes them. They are also publishing information on varicose veins treatments that are available, as well as tips for great Vein Health.

“It is extremely important for patients to understand what causes varicose and spider veins so they can take steps to prevent the issue, or seek treatment if they know they are at risk,” stated Dr. Peter Paraskevas from the Vein Health Clinic. “We not only provide treatments for individuals suffering from vein health issues, but we are not providing educational resources and information about why they develop and how they can be prevented. Our staff believes this is an important step and one that should not be forgotten or left out.”

Approximately 25 percent of men and 40 percent of women suffer from issues due to varicose veins. These veins look like cords of twisted, bulging veins beneath the skin. Some of the most common symptoms of this condition include tenderness, tingling, itching, fatigue, swelling, aching and leg heaviness.

“There is good news,” continued Paraskevas. “We offer a number of effective and safe treatments for varicose and spider veins. Some of our most effective treatments include ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy, sclerotherapy, ambulatory phlebectomy and endovenous laser ablation. Also, patients suffering from minor cases of spider or varicose veins may see results by using more conservative treatments, such as healthy lifestyle changes, such as leading a more active life, or compression stockings.”

Additional information about vein health and treatment options is available by visiting the Vein Health Clinic website.


Dr. Peter Paraskevas established the Vein Health Medical Clinic to provide a location for patients suffering from venous disease. Today, it has grown into a practice that offers all types of innovative treatment methods for various vein health issues, including leg ulcers, lymphoedema, spider veins and varicose veins without the scarring side effects and pain caused by traditional surgical options.
