Do you think that your varicose veins are something you’re stuck with for life? Think again, you don’t have to live with the pain of varicose veins not to mention the nuisance and embarrassment they cause. As we spring into shorts and swimsuit season, you don’t need to suffer from varicose veins needlessly any longer.
If you are suffering with varicose veins you are not alone. Varicose veins impacts over half of the US population ages 50 and older, but the disease is not simply limited to older adults. Athletes, pregnant women, those with a family history of varicose veins, and those whose occupation involves long periods of standing are also impacted. Most often, varicose veins appear in the legs and feet but can effect some surprising parts of the body including the arms, hands and even the chest.
Just like not all veins are created equal, neither are the treatments for varicose veins. In previous decades, a painful technique called vein stripping was used to treat varicose veins with a scalpel. Today, there isn’t a one size fits all approach for treatment. Modern technology provides several options for varicose veins that are all less invasive and less painful. These are all outpatient procedures that generally require no sedation and little or no interruption to your daily life. When you come in for your initial consultation, our team can recommend several treatment options.
Spring is the perfect time to get varicose veins treated so that you will be ready to enjoy summer. We want to help you feel confident with legs that not only look great, but feel healthy. You’ll ask yourself, why did I wait so long to seek treatment?!?
