How to Get Rid of Varicose Veins

Varicose Vein Treatment

Varicose Veins

One of the best things about February is that you’re almost over the hump of winter, but you still don’t have to get your body bikini ready quite yet. If you have varicose veins that are causing you to cover up your legs and feet no matter how hot it is outside, then now is the perfect time of year to start considering ways that you can get rid of them. From losing weight to getting surgery, this article will discuss a few options you have to help you get rid of your varicose veins once and for all. Read on to learn more.

Lose Weight

If you are overweight and suffer from varicose veins, the two are likely connected. To help get rid of your varicose veins and take better care of the rest of your health overall, try to lose some extra weight. By unclogging your veins and arteries, losing weight will help to increase the blood flow to your body— leaving you looking and feeling better in no time.

Compression Stockings

As the easiest way to try to get rid of your varicose veins and feel more comfortable, try wearing compression stockings. Found over-the-counter at most drugstores, compression stockings work to maintain the blood flow to your veins and help reduce any swelling that you may be suffering from.

Surgery

Here at Callendar Cosmetic and Dermatology Center we offer our varicose vein patients a surgery called sclerotherapy. During this surgical procedure, a salt solution will be injected directly into your veins. Once the solution comes into direct contact with your veins, they will collapse and eventually dry up— leaving you with the varicose vein free body that you’ve always wanted.

When it comes to getting rid of your varicose veins, you have several options. To learn more of these options or to schedule an appointment with our office, contact Callender Cosmetic and Dermatology Center today!
