Perhaps you’ve gotten somewhat used to your varicose veins. You’ve grown accustomed to hiding them under long skirts and pants, and to putting up with that aching, heavy feeling, not to mention the swollen legs and ankles.
But perhaps recently you heard about the new, minimally invasive treatments available from the Winston-Salem vein experts at Novant Health Vein Specialists, and you begin to wonder…what would life without varicose veins be like?
What would life be like for Winston-Salem residents without varicose veins?
Your life would be an active one – no declining to go out and participate in activities due to the annoying symptoms of vein disease. You’d be able to be proud to show your legs, and you’d be happy wear those short pants or skirts you’ve been storing in the back of the closet. Even more important than the aesthetic consequences of living varicose vein-free, however, are the health consequences you’d enjoy.
You see, varicose veins are a symptom of an underlying condition known as chronic venous insufficiency, or CVI. CVI occurs when the tiny valves inside your veins begin to break down, due to aging, heredity, or lifestyle factors. When the valves in your veins aren’t working properly, blood isn’t adequately propelled up the body to the heart and can pool in the legs. CVI is actually quite dangerous, because it is progressive and won’t go away on its own. Blood pooling in the legs causes those swollen legs and ankles, and can lead to some pretty serious consequences, including blood clots, if it’s not treated promptly.
The good news is that treatment by a qualified Winston-Salem spider and varicose veins doctor can eliminate these risks, while also restoring the former beauty of your legs.
