Get your varicose veins treated so you don’t have to hide your legs this summer

If you have varicose veins, you always wonder what you can wear during the summer months so there is no need for you to show your legs. This is the question that those who endure unsightly varicose veins struggle to answer. Alleviating this summer anxiety probably won’t be achieved by choosing layered clothing, wearing distracting crazy patterns, or wild sunglasses aimed to draw attention away from bulging leg veins.

In reality, most people just want to be able to wear a pair of shorts, swimwear or a skirt without worrying about their ugly, bulging varicose veins. Although varicose veins are certainly unwanted cosmetically, they can also cause pain, tiredness in the legs and even skin ulceration.

Varicose vein symptoms often worsen during the summer months due to the heat. Specialist vein doctors explain that blood vessels expand and place more stress on vein valves resulting in the pooling of blood. Additionally, skin can be robbed of moisture and elasticity, weakening the skin’s upper layers and resulting in less flexibility and movement.

Varicose vein treatment

For those who are tired of hiding their legs, there are two highly-effective, non-surgical varicose vein treatment options available to consider.

  • Endovenous Laser 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.
  • Sclerotherapy for Varicose Veins – During this procedure, a varicose vein specialist uses a tiny needle to introduce an FDA-approved sclerosant into the vein, drops at a time. This gentle, yet effective medication causes the vein to collapse and close. Over time, the closed vein gets absorbed by the body and disappears. The sessions are typically completed in the office, within 20 minutes per leg.

Because no scalpels or sutures are utilized in either treatment, there are no long lasting scars or keloids. There’s minimal discomfort, and most treatments are characterized as being virtually painless. With these modern therapies, 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.
