Do you have gnarled, enlarged veins on your legs or feet that are purple or dark blue in color? If so, you probably have varicose veins. For some people, varicose veins are only a cosmetic problem, but for others they can cause pain and discomfort and even lead to more serious issues. Common symptoms of varicose veins are tiredness, aching and heavy legs, swelling, worsened pain after standing or sitting for a long time, and itchiness around the veins. Your risk for varicose veins increases with age.
If you are affected by varicose veins, you are not alone. Almost half of Americans aged 50 and older suffer from varicose veins. Nearly 55% of women and almost 45% of men in the United States suffer from some kind of vein problem. To ensure your varicose veins are not linked to venous insufficiency or another complication of the veins, you should consult a vein doctor right away.
A reputable vein doctor will be able to diagnose the severity of your varicose veins and recommend the appropriate treatment. With new innovations in modern science, there are many minimally invasive treatment options. One of the most effective treatment methods is endovenous laser therapy, which uses laser energy to seal the enlarged veins. Some other ones include microphlebectomy, radiofrequency ablation, sclerotherapy, FlexiPulse therapy, cryo-sclerotherapy and many others.
Correctly applied treatment will improve your appearance, relieve your pain and other symptoms, optimize your circulation and prevent the problem from reemerging in the future.
