What Are Varicose Veins?
These are unhealthy blood vessels that often appear in your legs. The veins become visible through the skin as red, purple, or blue and sometimes might become so swollen that they bulge out like twisted ropes. In earlier stages, varicose veins might not be a cause of concern. However, as the condition becomes severe, you may begin experiencing symptoms in your legs, including; fatigue, tingling, leg pain, burning, night cramps, cramping, itching, swollen legs, throbbing, discoloration of the skin, and soreness. If not timely treated, varicose veins can cause fluid buildup in your tissues or even the development of venous ulcers. These wounds can cause disability, pain, or amputation in severe cases.
What Are the Causes of Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins happen when the veins’ valves are not functioning properly. Normally, the valves prevent the blood from flowing back down to your legs when it should be flowing to the heart. If the valves are weak or damaged, blood can flow backward and collect along the veins. This collection results in the appearance of varicose veins.
While there is no specific cause of varicose veins, the risk factors include; standing or sitting for a long time over the years, smoking, lack of sufficient exercise, and being overweight or obese. Hormonal imbalance and activity can also contribute to varicose veins, and it’s common for pregnant women to develop varicose veins. If your family members have varicose veins, you have a higher likelihood of developing the condition in the future.
What Are the Available Treatments for Varicose Veins?
Several varicose vein treatments are available at Surgical Care East, PLLC, all effective, have no downtime, and come with minimal discomfort. These include;
Sclerotherapy involves receiving Asclera injections into the varicose veins, which cause the veins to collapse.
- VenaSeal Closure System
VenaSeal is a unique type of medical adhesive that sticks to the sides of the varicose veins to close off the vein.
- ClosureFast Radiofrequency Ablation
This treatment uses radiofrequency energy to collapse the varicose veins.
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy
This treatment is preferred for treating larger veins. The procedure involves removing the varicose veins via minimal invasive incisions under anesthesia.
What Should You Expect After Varicose Vein Treatment?
After your treatment of varicose veins, your doctor might recommend you to wear compression stockings and avoid doing strenuous activities for some days. The treated varicose veins will disappear, but new veins can form. You can prevent the development of new varicose veins by exercising regularly, losing weight, and stopping smoking.
