Title: Put Your Best Foot (Leg) Forward with Varicose Veins Treatment

Varicose and spider veins are a common problem among men and women alike. Once you’ve developed this condition, it won’t go away on its own. You can, however, prevent your condition from worsening through natural remedies and medical treatments. A vein specialist from Aqua Marine Medical Centre & Skin Clinic can provide greater insight into your condition and recommend the best options for treatment.

Options for Varicose Veins Treatment

There are numerous options for treating varicose veins, depending on the severity of your condition. Here are just a few:

Self-Care - Diet and exercise play an important role in managing varicose vein symptoms. If you’re overweight, losing excess pounds will relieve pressure on your legs to keep your condition from worsening. Raising your legs when sitting or lying down helps improve blood circulation to ease pain and inflammation.

Compression Stockings – For mild cases of varicose or spider veins, wearing compression stockings could help manage your symptoms. Compression stockings gently squeeze your legs to improve blood circulation and alleviate vein pressure. These stockings can generally be purchased at any pharmacy.

Sclerotherapy – Sclerotherapy is a medical treatment in which your doctor injects a solution into your vein to cause it to scar and close down. This redirects blood circulation to healthy veins. The treated vein eventually collapses and gets reabsorbed into surrounding tissue. Within several weeks, it will fade away. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may need several treatments to get rid of the unsightly appearance of varicose or spider veins. Although sclerotherapy is mostly done for esthetic purposes, it can help relieve painful symptoms like aches, swelling, burning and cramping. Sclerotherapy treatments are available at our skin clinic along with scarless mole removal, IPL therapy, microdermabrasion, skin needling and other cosmetic skin treatments.
