The Actual Benefits of Varicose Vein Removal
Posted in General on February 26, 2020
In earlier medical history, there weren’t a whole lot of benefits when it came to treating varicose veins. In fact, they called it “vein stripping” and it was extremely invasive, wasn’t very effective, and yet required massive amounts of time in recovery. Imagine that – no real advantages, being out of work for an extended period, and a lack of permanence in the procedure. That would be awful. There are myriad reasons why vein stripping isn’t used any longer.
Today’s technology allows you to recover far quicker, is nearly painless, and has a much higher success rate with keeping varicose veins away for good. Procedures like Venaseal, Closurefast, and Varithena allow doctors to treat varicose veins and similar ailments with speed, agility, and accuracy never seen in prior times.
The improvement of treatments like these offers you as a patient the perfect time to do something about your varicose veins today. Without much discomfort, downtime, or ineffective results, your vein surgery can be a quick success and have you back on your feet in no time! The benefits gained from treating your veins and vascular issues are nearly countless.
Many people suffer aching, heavy-feeling legs due to their varicose veins. If you have them treated, that pain can be reduced if not outright eliminated. An ultrasound of the suspect areas will be required to map out and diagnose all the veins. This allows your doctor to get rid of the veins directly at the source and not just the visible veins, thus addressing possible underlying issues.
Quite often, swelling due to varicose veins can hinder normal movement that keeps people from being active. They literally can cause people who would be active to lose mobility because of their veins. Once treated, your veins will give you back the movement that’s been missing from your life. How great would it be to get your previous, active life back?
When you have your veins treated, the purple, red, or other-colored veins disappear. You will now be able to wear whatever you want without self-esteem issues due to your veins. Your self-confidence will be greater than it ever has, since you’re now older, wiser, and looking younger than ever. There will be no glances or looks at your varicose veins because they will not exist.
Oftentimes, poor sleep is the product of restless leg syndrome, a sleeping disorder. Restless leg can be caused by the discomfort from varicose veins. Without painful, achy varicose veins there is a chance that restless legs can be quelled. The sooner you get your veins treated, the sooner you could be sleeping soundly through the night.
The Cost Of Treatment
On top of the fear of vein stripping of old, many patients avoid varicose vein procedures because of the cost. These days, the costs are much lower and many insurance companies cover the cost, as they deem it a medically necessary treatment.
