Top Five Reasons to see a Vein Specialist Before Summer

Thursday, May 28, 2015

If you have been struggling with vein-related leg pains or are embarrassed to show off your legs this summer, consider seeing a specialist sooner rather than later. Here are the top five reasons why you should consider seeing a vein specialist before summer fun, hot weather, and outdoor activities kick into full gear:

Resolve painful symptoms:

Varicose veins may cause leg swelling, cramping, restless legs, heavy legs, throbbing legs, and general discomfort. Without seeking treatment, these symptoms may limit summer activities.

Renew your confidence:

Feel comfortable in your swimsuit this summer! Varicose vein treatment may improve swelling in the legs and may reduce or eliminate bulging varicose veins and spider veins.

Minimize uncomfortable treatments:

Using compression stockings can be hot and uncomfortable and doesn’t fix the underlying problem. Vein closure or ablation fixes the underlying problem of vein reflux.

Don’t delay; treat them today:

Waiting too long can lead to larger, more extensive and worsening varicose veins, irreversible skin changes and skin ulcerations. Delaying treatment can necessitate more complex procedures and longer recovery.

It’s been proven to help:

Many patients say that their legs feel great after treatment. They often state that they never knew how much their legs were bothering them until they fixed the problem.
