Health Risks Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are not only unsightly. They can also cause health problems if they are left untreated.

Health Problems Caused by Varicose Veins

When you have vein disease, the valves in the veins in your legs aren’t working right. That means your blood isn’t circulating through your legs the way it should. As a result, you may develop varicose veins.

Varicose veins can cause all sorts of health issues. They can be painful and/or itchy. They can cause legs to swell and cause a burning sensation that can keep you awake at night.

Untreated varicose veins could also lead to blood clots, which are potentially fatal. They could cause ulcers and skin damage.

Today’s Treatments Are Better

In the past, many people avoided getting treated for their varicose veins because the treatments were invasive and not always effective. Today’s treatments are safer and more reliable. Advances in medicine have opened up new ways of treating varicose veins. Doctors can now use light from lasers or radiofrequency energy to close off varicose veins. These procedures are minimally invasive, give good results, and have a quick recovery time.

The Health Benefits of Varicose Vein Treatments

By getting treatment for your varicose veins, you can reduce or eliminate pain and swelling. If the pain has been interfering with your sleep, you may find a dramatic difference in your ability to get a good night’s rest.

Varicose vein treatments can also decrease your chances of getting dangerous blood clots. When you get treated, it’s like you are closing off a leak, and the deep veins in your legs will be able to get the blood where it’s supposed to go again.
