We’ve talked about the cause of varicose veins: age, excess weight gain and standing or sitting for long periods of time. Now we will talk about the treatment of those varicose veins. Treating varicose veins can transform your life by removing the pain that comes with them.
Varicose veins are uncomfortable and can prevent you from fully living your life. Before the onset of varicose veins, walking and performing everyday activities was normal. Once you’ve experienced the heaviness, tiredness and fatigue that varicose veins causes, then you know that it’s time to treat them.
How To Treat Varicose Veins
There are many options to treating varicose veins, surgically and non-surgically. The best options are high tech, non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments that can minimize the size of varicose veins or remove them completely. These treatments can transform your life by allowing you to move freely without pain once again. The treatments to explore that we provide at Canada Vein Clinics are:
Sclerotherapy is a vein closing treatment that removes the pathway the blood takes to fill the surface varicose vein. Shlerotherapy is performed with a special LED light we use called the Veinlite, to find the point of entry veins beneath the skin for blood flow of the varicose vein. Once we find which veins we need to treat with Sclerotherapy, we inject the vein with a salt solution.
The salt solution causes the blood vessel walls to swell and stick together, sealing off the point of entry for blood. Blood here will clot and allow the closed vein to scar and heal. This treatment closes off the pathway of blood flow to the varicose vein, removing the appearance of the vein.
For very large Varicose Veins – mini-phlebectomy can be done. This is a very minimally invasive procedure. Under local anesthesia, very small punctures are made and the varicose vein is removed in segments with special hooks. The surgery has no recovery time but is the fastest way to remove large, bulging varicose veins.
This procedure can be done quickly and it’s minimally invasive with only a surface anesthesia for the insertion of a small catheter. ClariVein treatment requires the insertion of a small catheter that is rotated, once inside the vein, and sprays a medicine on the vein walls causing them to close. Once the vein is closed, it is sealed off and prevents the varicose vein from returning.
Endovenous Laser Therapy
The Endonvenous Laser Therapy is a varicose vein treatment that requires laser treatment to heat and damage the vein. A needle with a laser tip is inserted into the vein with topical anesthesia, and the vein is treated with the laser to close off blood flow. The vein is damaged so that is cannot serve as a pathway for the blood. The treatment is 98% effective.
The Benefits of Treating Varicose Veins
Once you’ve decided that you want to start treatment of uncomfortable varicose veins, you will begin to see and feel the benefits. Treating varicose veins can transform your life in so many ways. The pain that was holding you back from exploring all that life has to offer will never get in your way again.
Love Your Legs
At Canada Vein Clinics we believe in loving your legs. Treating varicose veins is the first step to getting rid of these unsightly bulging veins that pop up on the surface of skin. Once you’ve completed treatment of you varicose veins by closing off the veins, you will see the difference in the appearance of your skin.
Vein Therapy Improves the Look of Your Legs
Legs are one of the most common areas that varicose veins form and we know that our patients wear long pants and anything that will cover the affected areas. After your varicose vein treatment, showing off your legs will not longer be an issue. Wear shorts, skirts and let your lovely skin show. The cosmetic relief is just the tips of the iceberg. Regain your confidence and see dressing up and going out as your new favorite thing to do.
Boost Your Activity
Varicose veins are painful and can cause swelling, bruising and other painful sensations in the legs and body. Undergoing a varicose vein treatment will get rid of that pain. When your legs are in pain from bulging veins, it’s difficult to remain active and this means that you often decline physical activities. Running, walking, playing sports, or playing with your children can be overwhelming. Once you’ve treated these surface veins, these activities will no longer be painful. Everything you wanted to participate in will be possible. Once blood flow in the legs is strengthened and the varicose veins are removed you can do anything. Run, skip, play soccer and do everything you were afraid to do. Transforming your life with varicose vein treatment is easier than you think with us at Canada Vein Clinics.
Improve Your Overall Health
Treating your legs with our minimally invasive treatments is easier than ever for varicose veins. Long gone are the days when these enlarged and painful veins will hold you back from living your life. Treating varicose veins can improve your overall health.
Now that you can be more active without the pain of varicose veins, physical activity will become a regular part of your life. When you’ve increased your physical fitness, things like losing weight are manageable. When painful varicose veins lowered overall physical activity, weight gain happens quickly and can be difficult to manage.
Walking is one of the first methods we recommend to preventing the onset of varicose veins and can result in weight loss. Making sure to include physical activity in your everyday lifestyle can lead to reducing your risk of heart disease. Losing the weight is a pleasant side effect of being active, but your mood will improve as well. Treating your varicose veins can transform your life at every turn. What are you waiting for?
