THE BENEFITS OF VARICOSE VEIN REMOVAL

Written By Lexington Vein Institute

Published On May 4, 2020

If you are suffering from varicose, there might be many reasons why you want to treat them, especially when it comes to treating varicose veins in the spring. In the old days of vein stripping surgery, there were just a couple of advantages to having varicose veins treated. Vein stripping procedures were highly invasive and had a low rate of success. However, here at Lexington Vein Institute, Dr. Bacha uses new treatment methods such as sclerotherapy, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser treatment. These treatment options are painless, minimally invasive, with little to no downtime associated with them. Also, there are a number of great benefits that come with varicose vein removal.

Appearance

Varicose vein removal can get you back to wearing shorts and swimsuits without worrying about those veins. This will definitely boost your self-confidence by no longer having to worry about people noticing your varicose veins.

Pain Relief

Varicose veins can cause, pain, discomfort, ache, and heavy sensation in the legs. They can also bleed spontaneously or with minimal trauma and they can become inflamed a condition called Phlebitis. Besides a surface network of veins, legs have an interior, or deep, venous network. On rare occasions, an interior leg vein becomes varicose. Moreover, such deep varicose veins are usually not visible, but they can cause swelling or aching throughout the leg and maybe sites where blood clots can form. Therefore, varicose vein removal is essential to help you with pain relief, which can be holding you back from being as active as you’d like to be.

Sleep Better at Night

Many men and women who suffer from varicose veins also suffer from poor sleep due to restless leg syndrome. Restless leg syndrome, or RLS, is a neurological disorder. Restless leg syndrome is also known as Willis-Ekbom disease or RLS/WED. Restless leg syndrome causes unpleasant sensations in the legs, along with a powerful urge to move them. For most people, that urge is more intense when you’re relaxed or trying to sleep. The most serious concern for people with restless leg syndrome is that it interferes with sleep, causing daytime sleepiness and fatigue. RLS and sleep deprivation can put you at risk for other health problems, including depression if not treated. Varicose vein removal helps greatly with restless leg syndrome’s symptoms to disappear for good.

Increased Mobility

Varicose veins cause swelling that interferes with normal movement. Therefore, many people who have varicose veins suffer from being as active as they’d like to be. However, varicose vein removal gets rid of those swollen varicose veins allowing people to go back to their normal lifestyle.

Varicose veins are both an aesthetic problem and a physical problem for most men and women who suffer from them. Fortunately, you don’t have to continue suffering. Get in touch with the experts at The Lexington Vein Institute to arrange your varicose vein removal appointment with Dr. Bacha today!
