As we age, we often develop painful, unattractive veins in our legs. Here at Premiere Center for Health and Wellness, we believe nobody should suffer from uncomfortable veins. Learn more about vein treatment in Cincinnati to determine if it is right for you.
What are Visible Veins?
Visible veins are a common condition which affects many Americans. They can be enlarged, swollen veins that may bulge to the surface of your skin. However, they can also be deep within your body and invisible to the naked eye. In this case, it may take a long time to diagnose the cause of your pain and discomfort.
Symptoms vary greatly but can include uncomfortable, achy legs, swollen ankles and feet, muscle cramps, especially at night, discolored skin, itchy skin over the affected area, and fatigue or heaviness in the legs. Symptoms are usually most severe in the evening, during warm, humid weather, or when you have been standing for extended periods of time.
What is Vein Treatment?
Vein treatment in Cincinnati varies based on many factors, including the cause and severity of your veins. If your symptoms are mild and caused by pregnancy, the only treatment you may need is compression stockings. Compression garments, combined with regular exercise and elevating your legs above your heart, improve circulation, prevent your blood for pooling, and help the blood in your legs return to your heart.
With that being said, we have seen great success using laser treatment to seal the damaged veins. This treatment method is performed in the comfort of our office using Cutera excel HR™.
Visible veins are not always preventable, which is why there is vein treatment in Cincinnati. However, there are things you can do to mitigate your risk of the veins in the future Avoid sitting or standing for long periods of time and walk at every opportunity. If you are overweight, do your best to lose weight.
