Why do patients think Varicose Veins are only a cosmetic concern…and they really are not?
Let’s call it an absolute misconception
Patients often don’t seek attention for their varicose veins because they consider them a cosmetic condition, and let’s face it, a lot of us may not care about the cosmetic aspects. Other reasons may be that they don’t see them on the skin, so they don’t really realize they have them.
You may only see spider veins, a lot of edema, or your leg skin getting progressively darker and or red. The key is to pay attention to the warning signs.
Do you have any of the following leg symptoms? Pain, swelling, throbbing?
Do your legs feel like they are heavier and easily tired when you stand, and you frequently need to sit or elevate your legs to feel better?
You may have none of the above but have significant Restless Legs that keep you up at night.
The truth is…
Varicose Veins do a lot more damage to your legs and your health that you may realize (until the damage is done).
So if you have any leg concerns do yourself a favor and have them checked earlier rather than later. A comprehensive venous ultrasound, done by an expert sonographer, can give us a lot of information about our legs.
Ultrasound is easy, takes under 30 minutes and is safe and painless. This will determine if Venous Insufficiency (improper functioning of the vein valves in the leg, causing swelling and skin changes) is present.
At our Vein Clinics of Lake County (with three convenient locations, and with our most qualified sonographers), you have nothing to lose but your varicose veins.
Remember, treatments (covered by most insurances) are done in office, with no down time and require only local anesthetics.
So what are you waiting for?
