Is It Possible to Cure Varicose Veins?

Many people do not realize that varicose veins can be cured. Find the best treatment to use in curing your varicose veins in this article.

The American Heart Association estimates that approximately 23% of men and women suffer from unsightly bulging and painful varicose veins in the legs. You can easily get rid of your varicose vein problem by contacting Dr. Ryan Jones. His success rate of varicose vein treatment in Arizona is high.

How Do You Get Varicose Veins?

Valves in your veins keep blood from running backward away from your heart, but when they fail your veins stretch, slowly leak into tissues, and cause swelling. Varicose veins are the result when the valves in your blood veins fail or become flabby and loose. This allows your blood to flow backward, pooling in the lower extremities.

Varicose veins are generally harmless unless they cause swelling or pain. Varicose veins are most common in people over age 40 who have had multiple pregnancies. But older men and women of all ages can develop varicose veins due to gravity, obesity, hormone changes, heredity, prolonged standing or sitting, and certain medical conditions.

What Do Varicose Vein Look Like?

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins may deepen in color and get bigger. That's because the valves become too flabby to work properly. When blood flow is sluggish or one-way, it can overload tissues with oxygen-depleted blood cells which cause the veins to swell and discolor. The color and size of varicose veins are related to how long the valves were not working properly.

Varicose veins are actually little clumps of blood that form when valves in the veins fail. Blood flows backward, creating a backup and pooling inside, which stretches and distends the vein wall. Varicose veins may be dark purple because red blood cells can leak into tissues and give skin a blue tint or it could be due to the high pressure.

The good news is that varicose veins are usually painless in the early stages because your body can compensate for them by sending more blood into affected areas. Varicose veins are unsightly but not dangerous unless they swell and cause lumpy, itchy legs.

Surgery Is The Only Proven Way To Cure Varicose Veins

Varicose vein treatment in Arizona includes using ultrasound to look at the circulatory system of the leg. A two-dimensional picture can help doctors, like Dr. Ryan Jones in Arizona, determine the exact vein affected and what treatment is best to use in curing your varicose veins.

What Is The Best Treatment To Cure Varicose Veins?

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency Ablation is a minimally invasive treatment that employs the use of radiofrequency energy to treat and resolve the underlying cause of varicose veins.

The goal of radiofrequency ablation is to collapse and shrink the diseased vein, resolving the venous disorder and restore blood flow.

Radiofrequency Ablations is typically performed on an outpatient basis, depending on the size of the varicose veins.

A small tube (catheter) is inserted into the vein where electrodes deliver high-frequency energy to heat up the vein walls. As a result, the collagen in the vein wall contracts, causing the vein to collapse and close.

Once the diseased vein is closed, blood flow will naturally redirect to nearby healthy veins. The surrounding tissues absorb the closed vein.

Other varicose vein treatments in Arizona may also include:

  • Laser Therapy: Lasers can also get rid of varicose veins. Lasers send bursts of concentrated light into the vein, and the vein collapses. There is discomfort, but the doctor quickly cools off the skin.

  • Foam sclerotherapy: An emulsifier is agitated with air, turned into a foam, and injected into the vein having problems. This foam gradually causes the walls to swell and stick together. Veins sticking together block off the vein, and soon the venous system takes over blood flow.

  • Ambulatory phlebotomy: A vein is extracted with a crochet-hook-like device. It's quick and there is no waiting for the vein to reabsorb. People often prefer this technique rather than wait for the vein to reabsorb.

Prevention of Varicose Veins

Here are the best ways to prevent varicose veins that you can do include:

  1. Try not to stand for long periods.
  2. Avoid sitting with your legs crossed. Crossing your leg pressures your veins.
  3. Put your legs up when resting.
  4. Get up and walk around every hour when you sit for long periods.
  5. Wear a support hose. You may not want to wear these dreaded socks, but you can find fun colors and patterns at some medical supply houses.

Conclusion

Varicose veins in the legs interfere with life in many ways. They make it difficult to wear certain types of clothing and uncomfortable in some shoes. Some people want to know how they can prevent varicose veins, while others wonder what is the best treatment to use in curing varicose veins?

Curing your varicose veins can make a huge difference in your life and help you to feel better, look better and improve the quality of your life.
