Have a Healthy New Year! See Your Varicose Vein Specialist for These Treatments

The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health this way, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” With that in mind, this coming new year presents another opportunity to make a commitment to your better health and well-being.

Varicose veins and spider veins can have an effect on a person’s appearance, affecting their emotional health, and self-esteem. However, varicose veins are not simply a cosmetic problem. Studies indicate that the major effects of venous disease are on the functional health aspects of a person’s life. 

Those who have varicose veins may suffer from many painful symptoms including heavy or aching legs, swelling, night cramps, heat or burning sensation, restless legs, throbbing, itching or tingling sensation, and skin changes or ulceration. In addition to enduring these discomforts, it is often a requirement to elevate their legs and avoid prolonged sitting or standing, which can severely impact the activities of daily living. 

Unfortunately, vein disease is a progressive condition and these symptoms and limitations typically increase with aging. In fact, even those without severe symptoms are generally troubled by significant functional limitations. Additionally, there is evidence that chronic venous insufficiency can lead to other complications, risks for disease, and death. Abnormal veins can affect the body’s ability to return blood to the heart.

Yet with treatment by a varicose vein specialist, circulation is better, symptoms are relieved, and appearance improved, easily and simply enhancing overall health and well-being. For those who are experiencing varicose or spider veins, there are two highly-effective,non-surgical treatments to consider, endovenous laser ablation or sclerotherapy for varicose veins.

The sessions are typically completed in the office of a specialist vein doctor, within 20 minutes per leg. Because no scalpels or sutures are utilized in either treatment, there are no long-lasting scars or keloids. There’s minimal discomfort, and most treatments are characterized as being virtually painless. With these modern therapies, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary.
