Essential Tips for Keeping Your Veins Healthy

If you are wondering about how to keep your veins healthy, there are a few important things that you’ll want to know. Having an awareness of some of the beneficial things you can do to improve how your legs look and feel, can prevent those tired, heavy, achy, itchy and restless feelings in them.

To begin, look at the three Easy “E’S”.

  • Exercise – Gentle exercise can help strengthen muscles, and stronger muscle contractions promote better circulation. Sitting or standing for long periods impedes circulation, so take frequent breaks with short walks.
  • Eating – A healthy diet with foods that are rich in bioflavonoids is especially beneficial to improving vein health. Bioflavonoids help reduce varicose veins with their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities. Additionally, obesity is a risk factor for varicose veins, so eating a healthy diet can reduce your risk.
  • Elevation – Lessen the effects of gravity on veins by placing your legs above your heart for 10-15 minutes once or more each day. It will also help alleviate swelling. If you are already experiencing varicose veins, you may have noticed varicose vein bleeding. Varicose vein bleeding can be heavy, but it may be controlled by elevating the leg and applying pressure to the area.

Although practicing these tips can help keep your veins healthy, when varicose veins are troublesome or unsightly, it may be time to consult with a varicose vein specialist. Treating varicose veins can improve their appearance, relieve symptoms, and prevent complications.

One highly-effective non-surgical remedy is varicose vein laser treatment. The procedure is known as endovenous laser thermal ablation. After a local anesthesia is administered, a varicose vein specialist introduces a small catheter into the vein with ultrasound guidance. This is followed by a small laser fiber, which delivers gentle laser energy, causing the vein to close. The procedure takes only about 10 minutes to do and requires no hospitalization or surgery center.

Because no scalpels or sutures are utilized in treatment, there are no long lasting scars or keloids.  There’s minimal discomfort, and most treatments are characterized as being virtually painless. With this modern therapy, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary.
