Varicose veins are most common in those who place undue stress on their legs.
Obesity is a condition that lends itself easily to this amount and kind of stress. Pregnancy can also put the sort of pressure on the legs and abdominal area that would cause varicose veins. Strangely enough, both individuals who stand for long periods of time and those with significantly sedentary lifestyles are at risk for developing varicose veins.
What Is the Treatment for Varicose Veins?
The good news for us all when it comes to treatment for varicose veins is that the steps we might take to correct this condition are largely to rectify their unpleasant appearance. The veins affected are mostly superficial just under the skin and don’t present a real health danger. This being said, we can offer effective varicose vein treatment to reduce the appearance of bulges and bluish discoloration. These therapies are available at all of our Southlake, TX area offices. Sclerotherapy closes off the walls of the problematic blocked spots in veins through the use of medication. This forces blood to move elsewhere toward the heart as it is meant to. Radiofrequency ablation is a similar process that is aimed at more severe, problematic veins. This procedure heats the vein in order to damage it and similarly redirect the blood. Varithena, venaseal, and clarivein can also offer relief to those seeking treatment for varicose veins from our VeinPain Physicians in our Southlake area offices.
