The Case for Varicose Vein Treatment
Varicose veins are largely perceived as a cosmetic concern. They look unattractive, with their roping, bulging characteristics. They keep you from wearing clothing that reveals the lower extremities. Are these sufficient concerns to validate treatment? They are! However, there’s more to varicose vein treatment than meets the eye. Patients who undergo the appropriate therapy to close off insufficient veins gain a lot more than improved aesthetics. The also get:
- More comfort. Varicose veins don’t just look awful, they feel awful, too! In fact, some people aren’t even aware that the throbbing and aching they feel at the end of the day comes from a varicose vein hidden beneath superficial tissue. Whether an obvious problem or one that is diagnosed through ultrasound, the varicose vein that goes untreated is one that causes discomfort. Vein treatment equals improved comfort.
- Better sleep. Many patients who suffer from varicose veins first discover their venous insufficiency when they obtain care for what is known as restless leg syndrome. This often occurs at night when the body should be resting. By locating and treating poorly functioning veins, it is possible to restore a good night’s sleep.
- Better mobility. It is an interesting double-edged sword to have varicose veins. When they become uncomfortable or create a “heavy” feeling in the legs, the last thing you want to do is exercise. On the other hand, exercise is what you need to promote blood flow and to decrease the risk of further vein damage. Eliminating the painful vein means improved ability to perform physical tasks and greater enjoyment of exercise.
- Better confidence. One of the primary reasons that patients give for wanting vein treatment in our Dallas vein clinic is the desire to feel more confident in their appearance. Improving confidence is an excellent reason for removing varicose or spider veins, plus you get all of the additional benefits to boot.
