How Do I Combat Varicose Veins?
What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are enlarged and twisted veins. While this enlargement and twisting can happen to any vein in the body, varicose veins are usually found on the lower body and the veins in the legs are most commonly affected. This is because walking and standing put strain and pressure on the veins on the legs.
While some people treat varicose veins as a cosmetic issue and not a primary health concern, there are some whose conditions are a lot worse than others and they suffer from pain and discomfort caused by varicose veins. Varicose veins can also lead to more serious problems when the condition aggravates.
But, how can one know that he or she has varicose veins?
Varicose veins that are not painful are dark purple or blue in color and can appear like bulging cords on your legs. For varicose veins that are painful, patients have an achy feeling and throbbing muscles in their legs. The pain also worsens with prolonged sitting or standing, and the skin might have a discoloration around the vein.
Preventive measures can be done to help ease the pain caused by varicose veins or to prevent it from getting worse. Frequent exercise and wearing compression stockings are helpful to manage varicose veins. However, if you worry about how your varicose veins look and your condition is worsening even with self-care measures, you should see your doctor immediately.
Your doctor will advise various treatments for varicose veins. If you are in New York and its surrounding areas, you do not have to worry because Hadi Medical Group will get rid of your varicose veins using the latest technology and state-of-the-art equipment.
Sclerotherapy is an effective venous treatment offered in Hadi Medical Group. This is a non-surgical treatment that targets swollen veins. Sclerotherapy is an effective treatment for small varicose veins and it involves injecting a treatment solution into the vein.
Our doctors in Hadi Medical Group will diagnose the condition of your varicose vein and will recommend sclerotherapy depending on your condition. Aside from varicose veins, we also use sclerotherapy to treat other venous diseases such as spider veins and malformed lymph vessels.
Venous Radiofrequency Ablation
Venous Radiofrequency Ablation is another minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins. This therapy uses radiofrequency to damage the wall of the affected vein which in turn closes the vein. In treating varicose veins, radiofrequency heat is sent through the vein through a thin catheter to close the blood flow in the problematic vein. We conduct effective Venous Radiofrequency Ablation procedures to reduce or eliminate skin irritation, discoloration and discomfort.
