What do residents of Miami, FL need to know about varicose veins?
Spider and varicose veins are frequently caused by venous insufficiency, a condition in which the vein is unable to move the blood out of the vein. The trapped blood pushes against the vein wall, stretching it out and contributing to its twisted, swollen appearance. Most of the time, varicose veins do not pose a health concern. But some people may experience symptoms from varicose veins such as aching, heaviness, ulcers and swollen legs and ankles. Any of these symptoms is enough to be bothersome, but they may even become debilitating if left untreated.
Many people hide their problem veins by covering up, wearing long pants or refusing to wear a swimsuit around even their closest friends and family. Other people choose to avoid social gatherings altogether in order to prevent anyone from find out their embarrassing secret. Still others are so troubled by their unwanted veins that they refrain from partaking in activities with their loved ones.
If you are suffering from spider and varicose veins, Miami Vein Center can help!
It makes no difference why you are seeking vein treatment. Whether your varicose veins feel terrible or are simply unbearable to look at, the pain and frustrations you feel are real and not something you are doomed to live with for the rest of your life. With the right treatment, you can find relief.
Luckily, the best vein doctors in Miami offer modern vein disease treatment options for treating varicose veins in a fast, convenient and effective way. For treating spider veins and up to moderate varicose veins, many vein experts may suggest sclerotherapy, which works by injecting a medicinal solution into the affected veins over several short sessions to reduce their appearance over time. More pronounced varicose veins often respond well to other minimally invasive outpatient procedures, such as endovenous laser ablation and radiofrequency ablation, in which heat seals off the affected vein and allowing healthier veins to take over circulation. Talk with a vein disease specialist to find out which procedure might be best for you.
