What Exactly Are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are noticeable, swollen, contorted veins, which are most typically found in the legs. Approximately 11M men and 22M women between 40 and 80 years have varicose veins. Protruding varicose veins are much more than an aesthetic annoyance. They could have severe consequences if left unaddressed.
Varicose veins have lost their capability to operate normally or return deoxygenated blood to the heart for oxygen replenishing. In some circumstances, ‘bad’ blood could accumulate in your legs, causing agonizing discomfort, non-healing infections, and perhaps even amputation. The Heart Vascular and Leg Center staff provides a variety of varicose vein care alternatives.
What are the indications of varicose veins?
Varicose veins can cause the following symptoms:
- Noticeable blue or dark purple veins
- Veins that look like cords
- Veins that bulge or twist
- Veins that itch
- Discoloration of the skin
- Leg discomfort following sitting or standing
- You get a heavy sensation in your legs
- Cramping of the muscles
- Burning, throbbing, or inflammation
Spider veins are lesser forms of varicose veins that occur on your face or legs and resemble a spider’s web. Blood clots and debilitating ulcers are two possible effects of varicose veins.
What are the Causes of Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins could occur in everybody, but particular factors enhance your susceptibility. These include individual or the background history of varicose veins, a lack of activity, being obese, being a female, pregnancy, aging, and sitting or standing for long durations.
What are Your Care Alternatives for Varicose Veins?
Specialists at Heart Vascular and Leg Center provide consultations, diagnosis, and treatment all at the same location. They employ advanced medical technologies, eliminating the need for surgery, incision, discomfort, and hospitalization.
Over your lunch hour, you could have varicose vein excision and then take yourself back to the office. Treatments available for varicose veins encompass:
v Lifestyle Modifications
Simple lifestyle adjustments could help to decrease or inhibit the formation of varicose veins. These include receiving regular exercise, maintaining a healthy body weight, and not sitting or standing for long periods.
v Compression Stockings
Compression stockings constrict your legs, allowing your veins to circulate blood around the body and reducing the seriousness of varicose veins.
In sclerotherapy, your practitioner administers a special solution into varicose veins, causing scarring and closing up the veins. Blood is then rerouted to healthier veins, and treated veins gradually disappear over several weeks.
v Laser Therapy
Without surgery or hospitalization, laser therapy utilizes advanced laser technology to shut off varicose veins. Blood is redirected to healthier veins adjacent.
v Radiofrequency Therapy
VenefitTM is a breakthrough technique wherein your physician destroys veins with radiofrequency energy, prompting them to shrink away with time.
In VenaSeal treatments, your practitioner will utilize a medical adhesive and catheter to close varicose veins without surgery.
