Some people believe that varicose veins are a cosmetic problem but professional vein treatments can help ease your discomfort. Although they may certainly have an effect on appearance, emotional health, and self-esteem, studies indicate that the major effects of venous disease are on the functional aspects of the quality of people’s lives.
Those who have varicose veins may suffer from many painful symptoms including heavy lor 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 the legs and avoid prolonged sitting or standing, which can severely impact the activities of daily living.
Unfortunately, these symptoms and limitations typically increase with aging, and even those without severe symptoms are troubled by significant functional limitations. Additionally, there is evidence that chronic venous insufficiency can lead to other complications, risks for disease, and death.
What vein treatments are used to treat varicose veins?
There are two modern treatments designed for varicose veins treatment to remove the pain and limitation of activities from those who have varicose veins.
- Endovenous Laser Ablation – A minimally invasive, FDA-approved procedure which produces immediate results in most patients and requires little to no recuperation time.
- Sclerotherapy – This safe and effective treatment uses VARITHENA™, an FDA-approved sclerosant, to eliminate varicose veins with pinpoint accuracy. A vein specialist doctor can treat symptoms in larger varicose veins and surrounding spider veins that are difficult to reach.
So, when you are ready to resume the activities that you once enjoyed, freed from pain and discomfort, you may want to consider endovenous laser ablation or sclerotherapy for varicose veins. There’s minimal discomfort, and treatment is 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.
