HOW DO YOU TREAT VARICOSE VEINS?

If you have visible varicose veins, you probably already know how bad they can get and how they might negatively affect your self-confidence. These reasons alone are usually enough for someone to seek treatment. Add them to the fact that varicose veins can cause several symptoms (such as leg pain, swelling, and fatigue) and can lead to serious health complications like lipodermosclerosis and venous leg ulcers, and you’ll see just how important it is to get medical help.

Fortunately, there are several ways to treat varicose veins. These treatment methods can be combined with each other, although they are also effective on their own. These include:

 

Lifestyle Changes

If your varicose veins are still in the early stages, you might be able to eliminate them or at least reduce their appearance and severity by making changes to your lifestyle. Here are some of the changes that you have to make:

Minimally Invasive Procedures

There are times when lifestyle changes aren’t enough to treat your varicose veins. When these instances occur, your best option is to undergo minimally invasive procedures that remove or close your varicose veins. One example is the Venefit Procedure, in which the diseased vein is accessed through a small needle and catheter and exposed to radiofrequency energy. The vein will collapse and close down, encouraging blood to flow through other healthy veins and preventing it from pooling in the legs.

Another procedure is microphlebectomy, which removes the diseased vein. Microphlebectomy accesses veins through small openings that don’t even need stitching to close. As a result, patients don’t need to be hospitalized, and they’ll experience only a minimal discomfort during the procedure. They can also go back to their regular activities after 24 hours.

 

Treating varicose veins is usually a straight forward process that is much easier than it was in the past. Treatment does NOT require hospitalization or major surgery.

Many vascular conditions can be remedied by noninvasive or minimally invasive treatments, such as lasers and sclerotherapy. However, sometimes vascular surgery is the best way to restore your circulation, improve systems, and guard your health.
