Varicose Vien on leg
Most people want to treat varicose veins not necessarily because it hurts but because it looks bad on their leg. However, for some, the condition comes both as physical discomfort and a cosmetic problem.
Varicose veins that cause pain can greatly slow you at work and be a major disruption to the way you go about your daily activities. What’s more, the symptoms get worse if you’re not treated and may worsen momentarily during menstruation, when standing or sitting and when exposed to heat.
Elevating the affected leg regularly and wearing compression socks are known to alleviate the pain temporarily. Permanent DYI solutions such as losing weight, on the other hand, may not work for severe varicose veins and take too long to work when they do.
Varicose Veins Pain Relief
Here are some of the permanent solutions to aching varicose veins:
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy – In this mini-surgical procedure, the vein specialist ‘drains’ large bulging veins by making small incisions in the skin along the vein. It’s a short procedure that vein specialists favor for its unmatched cosmetic results.
- VenaSeal – This is a form of sclerotherapy that uses an adhesive to shut the affected vein. The vein is bound to die as the adhesive cuts its only supply of blood.
- Sclerotherapy – In this method, a special solution is injected into the vein to make it swell and ultimately collapse. The idea is to force blood to reroute, effectively killing the treated vein.
- Venefit Targeted Endovenous Radiofrequency Therapy – This involves the use of heat to cause a scar inside the affected vein, causing it to close and forcing blood to use other healthy veins.
