Varicose veins are a lot more than a cosmetic concern
Varicose veins cause significant long-term morbidity if left untreated. Late effect of untreated severe varicose veins includes leg discoloration and ulcerations.
Why do Varicose Veins cause leg symptoms? Varicose Veins are malfunctioning veins. Instead of carrying the poor blood from legs up towards the heart, they reverse course. Inside a varicose vein, the blood flow is reversed so that the poor blood is pooled into the leg instead of getting to the core to be refreshed. Such pooling will leak water to the soft tissue of the leg causing swelling. It can leak iron to the skin causing darkening of skin, known as Venous Stasis. The skin darkening eventually progresses into ulcerations. Skin ulcer caused by varicose veins (also known as Venous Ulcer) is difficult to heal, or it keeps coming back.
Early signs: some of the earliest signs of varicose veins are spider veins, ankle swelling, leg fatigue and heaviness. Sometimes Varicose Veins are not even visible to our eyes, but symptoms can be highly suggestive. So, anyone with leg pain, edema, heaviness, pain, discomfort, cramps, restless legs, discoloration, should be assessed for Varicose Veins.
Treatment: the latest treatment with minimally invasive procedures such as laser ablations and sclerotherapy (direct injection of varicose veins) are highly effective in eliminating Varicose Veins. Such treatment requires no incisions, no scarring, no anesthesia, and no down time.
So why wait until your legs get worse and you develop more varicose veins before seeking help?
You can have an ultrasound to determine if you have them, and if you do, how to have them treated before they get worse and cause more symptoms.
