What are varicosities and how can a vein specialist treat them?
Varicosities are described as being the state or condition of being varicose. The term “varicose” usually applies to veins. Varicose veins are abnormal and damaged veins that have become close to the surface of the skin. They appear to be twisting and complex, like a web of veins. The varicose veins aren’t usually able to circulate blood through the body like they should, and they’re typically located in the back of the legs.
These varicosities can be problematic for some patients, causing pain and discomfort that interrupts their daily lives. For others, the veins are just a cosmetic issue. Patients may choose to get both types of varicosities treated, but they should note which clinics don’t offer cosmetic treatment services.
How can a vein specialist treat varicosities?
- Minimally invasive surgical procedures — Vein specialists can readily provide a few different types of minimally invasive surgical procedures to treat their varicosities.
- Guidance with lifestyle changes — Procedures aren’t the only way vein specialists can help you with your varicose veins, though. They can also help guide you through the changes you need to make to improve your vascular health. These include getting more exercise, drinking more water, eating healthier foods for your veins and blood quality, and more. Specialists can help point you in the right direction.
