Both men and women battle with varicose veins. These characteristic veins usually do not show up until you hit the middle part of your life. A few years ago, the only option that you had for addressing unwanted veins was to undergo invasive surgery that required a lengthy recovery period. This in and of itself was enough to scare people away from getting the treatment that they needed for their varicose or spider veins. Fortunately, times have changed. Dr. Orfanos and Dr. Garcia-Cantu now offer patients options that do not require surgical treatment for addressing vein issues.
Dr. Orfanos and Dr. Garcia-Cantu can help you get rid of your problem veins with minimally invasive procedures. As a result, patients are able to get the relief they need without the discomfort, risks or downtime of surgery. Now that people know there are other options available, they are more inclined to get the treatment they need and the benefits that come with it.
Possibly the biggest benefit that people get from treating their varicose or spider veins is an improved sense of self-confidence. Spider veins can be a source of embarrassment for many people. As they get bigger, they become more visible. This is especially the case for those with pale skin.
For some people, their discomfort with their spider veins reaches a point at which their condition dictates the clothing they wear or what activities they will engage in. Because they are embarrassed of their spider veins, they might avoid going to the beach, playing certain sports or attending certain social events. If you find yourself in a position like this, why not take the steps to get the treatment that you need to remove them? Once they’re gone, you’re going to like the way you look a whole lot better. One of the best things about modern vein treatments with Dr. Orfanos and Dr. Garcia-Cantu is that you can get smooth, clear skin without an intensely invasive procedure.
While spider veins are largely just a cosmetic issue, varicose veins often have symptoms associated with them. This means that not only do you suffer emotionally, but you are also battling real physical symptoms. For some, varicose veins make their legs hurt. Others deal with fatigue in their legs, especially after they’ve been walking or standing all day. It is not uncommon for those with varicose veins to have legs or ankles that are swollen, itchy, burning, cramping or restless.
These symptoms can be so severe that they distract from you living the life that you want and limit the activities you can engage in. It is nice to know that once you get rid of the problem vein, the symptoms also go away. Many patients express the relief they feel almost immediately once they have treatment for their vein issues.
