Summer is almost here—meaning it’s time to start thinking about reducing the appearance of veins on the legs before it gets really hot! Spider veins and varicose veins are some of the most common vein issues affecting men and women. Fortunately, many safe and minimally invasive treatments can reduce the appearance of veins right now before warmer temperatures start rolling in. Here are five reasons to choose vein treatments in anticipation of the hot and sunny summer season.
1. Reduce Vein Symptoms
Varicose veins can often trigger pain and discomfort—especially when standing or sitting for long periods.
Varicose vein symptoms may also include:
- Aching or cramping.
- Tiredness in the legs.
- Heaviness in the legs.
Many of the above symptoms can affect the quality of life in people with vein issues. Fortunately, varicose vein treatment can help reduce these symptoms while also improving the appearance of the legs. People in great need of varicose vein pain relief may benefit from vein treatment during the summer and any other time of year.
2. Feel More Confident In Shorts and Skirts
Even if they don’t cause symptoms, varicose veins and spider veins can be unsightly and can easily be seen on nearly all skin colors.
In addition to reducing symptoms that cause discomfort, vein treatment can reduce the appearance of veins and may even make them go away completely. This can make people with veins feel more confident and relaxed when wearing shorts and skirts—especially those with lighter skin tones that make veins more noticeable and pronounced.
3. Enjoy Fast, Short Treatments
North Shore Vein Center offers only minimally invasive treatments for vein issues. Minimally invasive treatments are relatively fast and painless and offer short downtime and recovery periods. For instance, an injectable spider veins treatment called sclerotherapy can be administered within minutes to close problematic veins and make them disappear.
Fitting vein treatment into a busy schedule is often completely doable, given how treatment sessions are typically short and convenient. Many sessions last around 45 minutes—meaning appointments can easily be scheduled during the work week.
4. See Noticeable Results Right Away
Some people who receive treatment for small or faded veins find noticeable results immediately or within a few days. In most instances, multiple treatment sessions are required over several weeks to achieve desirable results. However, getting vein treatment as soon as possible could potentially help veins fade away before the summer.
5. Choose From Multiple Treatment Options
A major benefit to receiving vein treatment is having the ability to choose from one of several treatment options. Minimally invasive treatment options that can produce spider veins pain relief include:
- Endovenous laser ablation.
- Endovenous radiofrequency ablation.
- VeinGogh™ ohmic thermolysis system.
- Ambulatory phlebectomy.
- Foam sclerotherapy.
- Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy.
- Conservative therapies, including compression stockings.
Varicose veins’ causes and risk factors include excess weight, pregnancy, constipation, and tumors, and spider veins’ causes are nearly the same. North Shore Vein Center offers the latest evidence-based treatments for both varicose veins and spider veins and can discuss each procedure in greater detail with those who want to address their veins before summer.
