Donít Let Spider Veins

Creep Up on You                     by Kathy Moran


Although not as serious as varicose veins, spider veins are still unattractive, and caused by malfunctioning valves that allow blood to stagnate in them. However, even though they may do more aesthetic damage than anything else (and thatís bad enough), if left untreated, they can continue to deteriorate.


   Furthermore, perhaps because they prevent proper circulation, spider veins may trigger Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), one symptom of which is, quite fittingly, a creepy-crawly sensation.


   Among the factors that can contribute to the formation of spider veins are age, heredity, hormonal fluctuations, and pregnancy. Therefore, itís no surprise that


women are not only more likely than men to develop them, but also to suffer from the fear of spider veins, otherwise known as arachnoveinophobia (a completely original and non-technical term).


   Interestingly enough, though, weíve found that making light of the situation can be one of the best courses of action. By that, we mean our Intense Pulse Light Therapy (IPL), a revolutionary new technology that quickly and safely exterminates spider veins, age spots, and other discolorations.


   Of course, thatís just one of many treatments that we offer. So, come see us for a consultation and an examination, and weíll determine the most effective way to slay your spider veins.


4 Myths About Varicose Veins


Myth #1


Varicose veins are just a cosmetic flaw.  This is simply untrue. Varicose veins come from blood flow restriction that can cause circulatory problems.


Myth #2


Only women get varicose veins.  While nearly 25% of women are affected by varicose veins, nearly 15% of men are affected as well.


Myth #3


Varicose veins do not hurt. Varicose veins cause swelling of the veins and circulatory problems that can lead to pressure and discomfort.


Myth #4


Varicose veins need to be treated with surgery. We use VNUS Radio Frequency Vein Ablation, which closes off bad veins with a minimally invasive wire procedure, and Compression Therapy, helping you lose varicose veins quickly and without pain!
