Varicose Vein Treatment is About More Than Just Looks

Text Size:  

If you’re suffering from varicose veins, there are likely two problems you’re concerned with. One is how the veins look, and the other is how they feel. While varicose veins can make you uncomfortable with the way your legs look to others, they can also cause a lot of pain and discomfort. Fortunately, varicose vein treatment can help both sides of the equation, so you can look and feel your best. Your Florida vein doctor can give you suggestions for treatment options, and working with him means you’ll get your questions answered and feel comfortable choosing the treatment that’s right for you.

With various vein treatment options, you can consider several options that may work for your specific needs. Then, vascular surgeons can take care of your varicose veins so you’ll feel more comfortable and like the way your legs look. While the look of your legs is important, what matters most is the way they feel, and having varicose veins can contribute to a lot of discomfort. Many people with varicose veins have heaviness and aching in their legs. They may also feel restless, and need to move their legs frequently. Additionally, there are complaints of itching and overall pain from many people who have varicose veins.

Once treatment has been completed through a local vein clinic, you’ll generally find that your legs look nice, but also that a lot of the discomfort you had is gone. Before you work with vascular surgeons for your varicose vein treatment, though, you’ll want to find out the underlying conditions that caused the varicose veins to form. It’s very important that you know why you ended up with varicose veins, so any conditions contributing to them can be corrected or properly treated. Dr. Wazni and his staff at United Vein Centers are available to answer and questions or to schedule a consultation at their Tampa and Largo locations.

That will make the vein treatment more successful, and will also help keep any varicose veins from coming back at a later date. There are no guarantees that you won’t develop more, but at least you’ll have a lower chance of it. It can take some time to get underlying conditions under control, but it is well worth the effort to do so. Your vein doctor may insist upon it, as well, as a condition of treating your varicose veins.

Once the treatment is complete, recovery time is generally short. The procedure is minimally invasive, meaning you can return to work and many of your normal activities quite quickly. You’ll look and feel better, giving you a higher level of confidence and helping you accomplish more because your legs won’t be aching and hurting you. That can make a big difference in how well you sleep and the quality of your life in general, which goes far beyond the look of your legs.
