Varicose Vein Removal for Your Health and Beauty

With summer on its way you are probably trying to get yourself in good shape. You might be thinking about losing weight, pedicures, and even varicose vein removal. These enlarged veins can be unsightly, painful, and even dangerous, but with a little help they can be a thing of the past.

Red blood cells and vein

Varicose veins occur mainly in the legs and ankles. They are a result of weakened valves and veins. When your blood doesn’t flow the way it should, it ends up pooling in your legs. This leads to pressure building up and ultimately to twisted, enlarged veins. Anyone can develop this problem, but several risk factors include genetics, old age, obesity, and frequently being on your feet. For most people they are just an unsightly annoyance, but for others there could be itchiness or even pain involved. In some cases they are an indication of deep vein thrombosis, which is a blockage that must be treated.

Treatment for this condition can vary. A simple lifestyle change can be all it takes to make them go away. This might involve wearing a compression stocking or resting your feet from time to time if you stand all day. If you are overweight you might consider starting up an exercise regimen and changing your eating habits. There are more invasive procedures that can close off or remove the veins. They might include sclerotherapy, radiofrequency treatment, laser therapy, or ligation. If you are also suffering from deep vein thrombosis, this will be treated as well.

Call Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee at 888-784-5335 to schedule an appointment at Foot and Ankle Associates in Sugar Land, TX. We would be happy to help make your varicose veins a thing of the past.
