August 27, 2018

What are Varicose Veins? How can you Remove Varicose Veins?

As you’ve gotten older, perhaps you’ve started to see some changes in your legs that cause you some concern. Normally, after a day’s worth of hiking, biking, and exploring outside, you still have enough energy to go out for the evening. Now, your legs feel tired, heavy, and painful after vigorous activities, which makes your evening activities center around the couch. Even more troubling, you’re starting to see thick, rope-like veins bulging from beneath your skin’s surface that weren’t there just a few months ago. Your first reaction might be like seeing a spider crawling on your leg:

“Eek! Get it off me!”

What you’re beginning to see is the start of varicose veins, and you can’t just swat them away like a crawling bug. However, you can enlist the guidance of a vein expert, like the vein doctors at the Vein Treatment Center of New York and Vein Treatment Center of New Jersey. If you want to look at how to remove varicose veins, and are willing to take the next step of contacting a vein expert, let’s take a look at what causes varicose veins, and also how to remove varicose veins.

What are Varicose Veins?

Those bulging, bluish veins that you’ve caught protruding from your skin are called varicose veins. What are varicose veins? They are the end result of faulty valves that are designed to keep your blood flowing back to your heart. Vein doctors will inform you that a vein’s main job is to deliver blood back to the heart for reoxygenation, but for patients with varicose veins, there are a few things not working properly with this delivery system. Varicose veins tends to occur in your legs, as a result of the increased pressure that is caused by sitting and standing. Your veins have to work extra hard in order to defy gravity and return blood to the heart, and they also rely on valves to keep the blood moving in the correct direction. When these valves become weakened, blood flows backwards into the vein, causing it to be trapped. This trapped blood then pools, which causes the appearance of varicose veins.

Weakened vein valves are due to a myriad of factors such as age, hormones, family history of varicose veins, sitting or standing for long periods of time, never wearing your compression stockings and your weight. The name for this condition is called venous insufficiency, or venous reflux. Vein experts agree that varicose veins are an indicator of this underlying problem, and it is critical that you are evaluated by a vein doctor in order to discuss how to remove varicose veins.

How to Remove Varicose Veins – The Best Treatment Options: 

If the sound of “varicose vein removal” sounds like something out of Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory, don’t be alarmed. In the past, it was necessary to surgically remove the veins, which led to longer recovery times. However, with the development of minimally-invasive methods, you can now treat varicose vein removal as a quick, outpatient procedure. A varicose vein doctor, such as the vein experts at the Vein Treatment Center of New York or Vein Treatment Center of New Jersey will be able to identify one of these cutting-edge options as the best solution to remove your varicose veins.

  •  Sclerotherapy: This method of varicose vein removal consists of injecting small amounts of a salt solution, called Sclerosant, into the affected veins. The Sclerosant agent helps your blood create a natural clot. In time, this will turn into scar tissue, causing your varicose vein to slowly disappear. Fun fact– the term Sclerotherapy derives from the Greek word “skleros” meaning “hard.”
  •  Radiofrequency Ablation: This minimally-invasive technique to remove varicose veins involves the use of thermal, heat-based energy to damage the vein, which in turn closes it. This treatment is used for larger varicose veins, and the vein experts at the Vein Treatment Center of New York or Vein Treatment Center of New Jersey will decide if this varicose vein removal method is right for you.
  • Venaseal: With a very high success rate, Venaseal, also known as vein glue, “seals” the affected varicose vein using a medically-approved adhesive. As one of the newest options for varicose vein removal, it has been proven to be highly effective for varicose veins that are close to the surface of the skin.

If you’re finding yourself more and more unhappy with how your legs look and feel, it’s time to contact a vein expert to discuss how to remove varicose veins. The vein doctors at the Vein Treatment Center of New York or Vein Treatment Center of New Jersey are highly-trained and qualified vein experts who can guide you

What are the Consequences of Varicose Veins

Yes, varicose veins are a cosmetic inconvenience, but they are also a symptom of underlying vein disease. Not only are varicose veins causing your legs to have bulbous, blue-tinted veins, but it is also signifying that you may have venous insufficiency. Because your veins are having a hard time sending blood back to your heart, you’re getting a visual signal that something isn’t right. Vein experts urge you to pay attention to your varicose veins. If left untreated, varicose veins can lead to leg heaviness, itching, ashiness, and the varicose vein’s continued progression. Venous insufficiency can only be diagnosed by a vein doctor, who will be able to suggest the best way to remove varicose veins based on your individual needs. toward the best method possible to remove varicose veins.
