How Do I Treat My Varicose Veins?
Vein disease can affect both men and women of all ages, and some of the effects of the disease are more pronounced in some people than others. If you’ve had large leg veins for several years, you might even notice itchiness, ramping, burning and fatigue in your legs on a regular basis.
Varicose veins are just one of several different types of vein disease. Your veins may have taken on a “ropey” appearance and could be a dark blue, green or even red in color. If the veins are right on the surface of the skin, you will be able to see all of the “branches” fairly easily. If they are located deeper in the tissues, you could be experiencing some pain, throbbing and discomfort when you go running or when you are standing for long periods of time.
These effects will only get worse when the weather warms up.
Vein doctors around the country do have some effective treatment options available for patients suffering from varicose veins.
Two of the most effective vein treatments include:
Choosing the Right Treatment for Varicose Veins
The endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) is a very quick and painless laser treatment that involves inserting a small needle into the skin, then firing the optic fiber so that heat energy can break down the vein walls. The vein is closed off and blood is circulated to other nearby veins.
Scelrotherapy is typically used for smaller veins and spider veins. It involves injecting a solution directly into the varicose veins so that the vein walls break down. Some vein doctors use an ultrasound device to find these veins embedded under the skin and deliver a more precise treatment. The injections cause a mild burning sensation, but once the vein is closed, the blood is circulated to other veins and the “dead” vein is absorbed by the body.
Talk to a vein doctor today if you have varicose veins and are prepared for treatment. You will need a few weeks to heal from these treatments, so it’s best to book this a few weeks and months before you plan to wear clothes that will show off your legs!
