That was the second stage of the varicose veins. Veins are very noticeable on the skin. Swelling, pain tortured all the time. Daughter bought me the gel variusalthough I hope not. The device used a long time, maybe a year. But the case is very advanced. The first thing I noticed, the skin was normal. Then gradually the pain is gone, swelling. Less visible than the varicose veins bumps. Real magic.
