Venous insufficiency, or vein disease, most frequently affects the legs. It can affect how they…
If you have spent this summer less than satisfied with how your legs look in shorts and skirts, let VeinSolutions help improve their appearance in time for next year.
Varicose veins, and smaller spider veins, affect more than 35% percent of Americans, mostly of whom are women. If this common vein disorder is what’s causing purple and blue discoloration, uncomfortable swelling, and spindly formations on your legs, now is the perfect time to start thinking about varicose vein treatment.
There are many effective forms of varicose vein treatments and varicose vein removal available that we offer in our vein treatment centers in Austin, Georgetown and Kyle.
As summer fades, the fall and cooler winter months are the optimal time to seek therapy and recover. The cooler temps allow blood vessels to constrict and function better, and promote faster healing, than the record heat we are experiencing now which can lead to swelling and irritation following a procedure.
The first step to achieving a better look and feel for your legs before next summer is to book an appointment with one of our vein specialists. They will not only assess the outward appearance of your legs, but they’ll take a deeper dive into what’s happening internally with your vascular and circulatory health to ensure there are no other serious underlying medical issues.
Here’s what you can expect at your first appointment with us.
After your initial consultation, our vein specialists will suggest a personalized treatment plan to help eliminate the spider and varicose veins. For varicose veins, we typically start with conservative measures to help improve circulation such as:
If after several months we see no change, there are more progressive, and minimally-invasive, treatments for successful varicose vein removal.
Some of these include:
- Sclerotherapy: injection therapy with very fine needles used to dissolve veins
- Endovenous Ablation: radiofrequency heat applied to veins via catheter to help them fade away
- Minimally-Invasive Vein Surgery: surgical removal of the most stubborn varicose veins through small puncture sites on the skin
Each of these treatments is conveniently performed in our offices on an outpatient basis and involve little to no downtime with the ability to return to regular activities right away.
It is sometimes common for procedures to be repeated multiple times in order to achieve the desired results and for the veins to completely disappear. This is why it’s best to give yourself several months to determine which treatment will be the most effective to get your legs looking and feeling their best for Spring and Summer 2024!
