vein specialistSeptember 29th, 2018. Winston-Salem, NCNovant Health Vein  Specialists is publishing a new article in which they discuss the worst things about living with varicose veins. According to the Winston-Salem based center, “Many people who have varicose veins think that the unattractiveness of them is the worst thing they have to look forward to if they forego treatment and decide to “just live with them.” It’s not true.

Dr. Joel Deonanan, vein specialist in Winston-Salem says, “The worst thing about having varicose veins isn’t living with the ugly, discolored veins that make you ashamed to show your legs in public. It’s not the pain and tiredness that often accompanies them. The worst thing about living with varicose veins is that left untreated, they only get worse.” He also points out that the root causes of varicose veins leave you with feelings of tiredness, with swollen legs and ankles, unable to stand or walk for long periods of time. This can make you feel “not like yourself,” and without the energy to enjoy your life.

Novant Health Vein Specialists believe that if more people were better informed about the troubling facts of vein disease, and the possible consequences of “living with” their varicose veins, they would be more likely to seek vein disease treatment in Winston-Salem, treatment.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Varicose veins result from malfunction of their one-way valves which normally promote the return of blood from the extremities back to the heart. Blood backs up in the veins increasing the pressure against the vein walls resulting in bulging veins. More than just a cosmetic nuisance, however, varicose veins can lead to leg pain, swelling and discoloration.

Many people are unaware of the affordable, effective treatments available to eliminate varicose veins. Modern advances in technology have expanded treatment options to include techniques such as sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser therapy. All of these procedures are well tolerated. They are performed by a highly skilled vein doctor on an outpatient basis with most patients able to return to work the next day.
