Unsightly varicose and spider veins may seem to be a cosmetic issue, but instead are typically a sign of chronic venous insufficiency. This medical condition can cause problems far beyond simply making legs look unattractive. Although most people have heard of varicose veins, not everyone understands how they can affect the quality of life.
Many of those who these vein disorders suffer from leg pain and swelling, itching, restless legs syndrome, skin changes, leg ulcers, many other symptoms. Because this condition is progressive, even when symptoms aren’t bothersome, more serious conditions can occur when these veins are left untreated. Although there are some lifestyle changes that can help to reduce some of the symptoms of varicose veins, they don’t eliminate them.
These malfunctioning veins can allow blood to stagnate, sometimes forming painful or life- threatening clots, or hemorrhaging and bleeding. Additionally, skin ulcers can develop along with the increased risk for infection in the surrounding tissues.
Fortunately, there is no reason to suffer with the pain or unsightly appearance of varicose or spider veins any longer, as newer alternatives can provide relief with vein removal surgery. In fact, two highly effective varicose vein treatment options are available today, endovenous laser ablation and sclerotherapy for varicose veins.
These procedures performed by a varicose vein specialist doctor are performed in just minutes and require no hospitalization or surgery center. 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.
