Reasons Why You Should Treat Your Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are the ropey, enlarged veins that most commonly appear on your legs and feet. They cause pain, fatigue, and ugly swelling that can interfere with your energy levels, daily function, and willingness to bare your legs in shorts, skirts, or bathing suits.

Varicose veins result when the valves in your veins don’t work correctly. They’re too weak to allow the blood to flow from your legs up to your heart, and blood pools in your legs and the pressure builds up, creating the gnarled, puffy appearance.  

These surface veins don’t affect the deep, working system for your legs, but they can be intrusive to your quality of life. You can remove or destroy these surface veins without ruining circulation to the legs.

Treating your veins has aesthetic benefits, and so much more. Learn why you should consider varicose vein treatment with Vein Health Clinics today!

Improve Your Confidence

The swelling, discoloration, and bulge of varicose veins are enough to keep you cloaked in long pants regardless of the season.

When summer comes around, the twisted veins in your legs can leave you feeling self-conscious about donning a swimsuit or even shorts. You suffer in hot coverups at the pool or beach. You may even be unwilling to wear shorts when you exercise, restricting your range of motion and overheating your system.

Vein treatment resolves the ropey appearance of your veins and fades the discoloration. You’ll look great in whatever you want to wear.

Feel Free to Do the Activities You Love

Varicose veins can cause your legs to fatigue and swell, making even moderate physical activity uncomfortable. Walking around the mall, sightseeing, and hiking become unpleasant. You may need to take frequent breaks and elevate your legs to relieve discomfort.

Getting your veins treated means you can resume a more active lifestyle. You’ll experience reduced swelling and leg fatigue, even after spending extended time on your feet.

Reduce Discomfort

Varicose veins can cause burning, itching, tiredness, and heaviness in your legs. Sometimes, your legs just ache from the faulty veins.

Varicose vein treatment dramatically reduces or eliminates these symptoms. Vein Health Clinics can eliminate the constant, nagging discomfort to improve your overall quality of life and sense of wellbeing.

Prevent Complications

Varicose veins can become itchy, leading to dermatitis. You may not be able to resist scratching the area, resulting in redness and even bleeding sores. Varicose veins can also lead to the development of blood clots close to the surface of the skin, causing pain.

By treating your veins with sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy, and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, you can head off these complications.

Sleep Better

Varicose veins can be so uncomfortable that they prevent you from sleeping soundly. You awake intermittently to shift position to relieve the aching and throbbing in your legs. With vein treatment, the pain that interrupts your slumber resolves and you can once again enjoy a satisfying night’s sleep.

While lifestyle modifications and compression stockings can help alleviate some of the discomforts that occur due to varicose veins, only sclerotherapy and other treatments offer a more permanent solution. Call Vein Health Clinics for a consultation and to find out what treatments are right for you.
