I had the second stage of varicose veins. The veins are very noticeable on the skin. Swelling and pain tormented continually. I bought the gel variuseven if I don't already I was hoping for. Enjoyed a half long, probably about a year. But my case was very advanced. The first thing I noticed, the skin is normal. Then gradually the pains have disappeared and swelling. Become less visible with varicose veins or cones. This is the true magic.
