Vein treatment advice for legs

Of all the venous conditions, the one that tends to bother patients the most is when the legs are affected. Legs are vulnerable to develop both varicose veins as well as smaller spider veins, however, fortunately, there are plenty of treatment options available for all venous conditions affecting the leg areas.

Varicose Veins on the legs
Our veins play a constantly demanding role in passing blood around the body, however some areas of the body face a particularly tough task, and this is nowhere more true than it is in the legs. First off, our leg veins have the job of pumping blood uphill for most of our lives, and over time, this takes a toll. Varicose veins can also develop due to how we spend our working day, prolonged periods of sitting down at a desk, or of standing still for long periods can both be causes of developing varicose veins in the legs. When veins have been under long term stress they become incompetent, and twisted in appearance, as well as usually taking a bright blue or red colour, this is what we call varicose veins.

Treatment Options
There are a handful of different treatment options available, depending on the severity of your veins, as well as your own personal preference for treatment. Among the most common treatment options are a phlebectomy, which involves removing the vein via incisions in the skin, as well as radiofrequency or laser ablation therapy, or sclerotherapy for smaller varicose veins.

Recovery
All of the treatment options for varicose veins involve relatively simple outpatient procedures, and most can be done under local anesthesia. Most of the treatment options are minimally invasive, and recovery will in most cases be immediate. There will be no reason for you to remain in the clinic after your procedure, and you’ll be ready to return to your normal activities shortly.
