For many people, varicose veins become an embarrassing problem. These veins cause the legs to be marred which makes individuals feel ashamed of the appearance of their legs. Thankfully, there are a wide array of medical treatments that can improve Vein Health and make the legs look more attractive.
What are the Signs of Varicose Veins?
Most people are able to see when they have varicose veins because they will show outward signs. It is important individuals are able to recognize the signs of vein issues so they will know when they need to seek treatment. Treatment can dissolve the veins, not only making the legs look more attractive but also stopping the pain.
Veins that have become darker in color (dark purple or blue)
Veins that are bulging and have become twisted
Aches in the legs
A feeling of heaviness in the affected leg
Pain in the legs that becomes worse after sitting or standing for long periods
Itching around the affected vein
Bleeding from the veins
Should a person notice any of these symptoms, it is important they seek treatment for their varicose veins. In the past, the only viable treatment for this condition was an invasive surgery, but now there are many treatments available that can cause the vein to be destroyed without causing any major discomfort or downtime for the patient.
What Treatments are Available?
There are a few treatments that can be used to treat vein conditions that are causing pain. It is important a person sees their doctor to determine which treatment will be most effective in successfully treating their veins and improving their circulatory system health.
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy uses an ultrasound machine to find veins that are damaged deep in the tissues. Using the ultrasound allows the doctor to be more precise in administering the sclerosant that works to collapse the vein and destroy it so the body can dissolve it.
Laser ablation involves the injection of a tiny laser fiber. As the laser is fired, this creates a reaction in the vein wall that causes it to collapse. Like traditional sclerotherapy, this procedure uses an ultrasound to guide the placement of the laser.
