How to Lessen Your Varicose Vein Symptoms
- Posted on: Sep 30 2018
If you are a woman who suffers from varicose veins, then you may be too self-conscious to show a little leg, stomach, or even your feet. As dark, purple veins that are painful, irritating, and not exactly fun to look at, varicose veins can be treated in a variety of ways. If you are new to varicose veins, and aren’t sure how you should go about treating them, read this article.
If you are a little bit overweight and are looking for another reason to shed some pounds, then add varicose veins to your list. Although weight loss can’t necessarily get rid of varicose veins, it can prevent them from worsening or new ones from coming to the surface.
If you haven’t tried wearing compression socks yet, then now is your chance. Compression socks work to improve the circulation of blood in your veins and help treat your other symptoms as well.
One of the treatments that we offer at Allure Skin and Laser is sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is a procedure that involves injecting a saline solution directly into the varicose veins. Once the solution has been injected, it weakens the veins and can ultimately cause them to collapse; getting rid of them in the process. Depending on how severe your varicose veins are, you may need anywhere from one to six treatments. During your initial consultation, we will be able to give you a better idea of how many treatments you need.
If your varicose veins are causing you pain and self-consciousness, then you should consider the treatments listed in this article. To learn more about sclerotherapy, schedule a consultation at our Elmhurst office today and call us at (630) 818-SKIN(7546).
