Two Procedures Proven to Treat Varicose Veins
Arteries carry oxygenated blood from the heart; veins carry blood back. Approximately a third of men and women will develop problems with the veins in their legs. While not life threatening, the backwards flow of blood resulting from faulty valves can cause unpleasant symptoms such as a feeling of heaviness in the legs, as well as aching and swelling. The reverse blood flow can be a side effect of age, genetics, pregnancy, weight gain or prolonged standing. Regardless of why, the end result is the same - varicose veins.
So many times, we see patients that have had prior "vein stripping" surgery elsewhere. It isn't bad enough that these same people simply traded swollen veins for scars, but, in most cases, treatment also proved temporary with the bulging veins returning. This is because "stripping" is not a solution; it's simply a way to treat the visible symptoms, rather than the reason for protruding leg veins.
Obviously, the most important aspect of successfully treating varicose veins is in identifying the point in your leg from which they originate. Unfortunately, for a very long time, this seemingly basic fact was overlooked. Today, locating "feeder veins" is achieved by administering a painless ultrasound to map the veins in your legs. Mapping is not only essential in ultimately treating varicose veins, but is also important in determining whether or not you are a candidate for Scelerotherapy (injection therapy).
Prior to lasers, successfully closing down swollen veins involved surgery and a hospital stay of several days. Today, with cosmetic medical treatments like sclerotherapy, your procedure can be completed without scarring in as little as 45 minutes. And, you can resume normal activities immediately.
