Are varicose veins and spider veins a cosmetic concern for you? If you are embarrassed to wear shorts or bathing suits, you may find yourself in long pants even during our hot Georgia summers. If this is you, the cosmetic appearance of your spider and varicose veins may cause you to seek treatment.
However, you may also experience physical discomfort like heaviness in the legs, pain, night cramps and restless legs. These symptoms may affect your quality of life and performance of normal daily activities. Pain can be exhausting, slow you down, wear you out and affect your work and play. The good news is that you don’t have to live with the pain; we can provide varicose veins pain relief! With the Vein Specialists of the South “Better Veins for Life®” relief tips and our non-invasive in-office treatments, you can have your varicose and spider veins treated without major surgery, lengthy recovery times and the pain that goes with it.
Varicose Veins Pain Relief: Managing The Symptoms Of Varicose Veins Prior To Treatment
Depending on your symptoms, the initial varicose veins pain relief treatment may include following the VSS “Better Veins for Life®” Principles. These principles include losing weight, exercising, wearing compression socks, and regular leg elevation. If you see improvement of symptoms with these measures you should see a phlebologist to determine the best treatment options for you. However, if you do not see improvements of your symptoms, additional testing is in order. The good news is that surgical vein removal, or vein stripping, is no longer the standard of care. Treatment options available today are far less invasive and are often done right in our office with minimal discomfort under a gentle local anesthesia.
