Many people experience leg pain as a result of their varicose veins, which may appear as swollen, bulging, and gnarled, or they may be internal without visible external indications. However, in either case, painful symptoms can include a feeling of heaviness or achiness in the legs, burning, throbbing, swelling, itchiness, and muscle cramping, especially after extended sitting or standing.
Varicose veins that are left untreated can lead to a number of serious medical conditions, and in most cases, the symptoms only get worse. Some complications of varicose veins that remain untreated may include leg ulcers, varicose veins bleeding, and blood clots, along with other risks that can require urgent medical attention. One of these urgent conditions is deep vein thrombosis, which can occur when a blood clot breaks loose, traveling through the bloodstream and causing a blockage of blood vessels in the lung.
However, there’s no reason to suffer with unsightly, painful varicose veins and their associated risks anymore. Modern laser surgery for varicose veins has revolutionized treating varicose veins with two highly effective treatment options, endovenous laser ablation and sclerotherapy. These procedures take only about 10 minutes to do and require no hospitalization or surgery center.
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.
