While you are out shopping for all your friends and family members this season, don’t forget to treat yourself as well. The gift of varicose vein treatment will truly be the present that keeps on giving, as procedures eliminate both the appearance and the painful symptoms of varicose veins that often accompany them. With many vein treatments to choose from today, Vein Specialists of the Carolinas encourages you to give yourself an early Christmas present with a vein treatment tailored just for you.

Facts about Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are more than a cosmetic nuisance for many vein sufferers. Broken valves in the veins are what cause varicose veins to form. The valves pump the blood back to the heart, and the swollen vessels form when the valves in the veins become damaged or wear out over time. Blood begins to pool in the veins, leading to swelling and varicosity. The problem mostly occurs in the veins of the lower legs because these veins have a more difficult task of moving blood against gravity back up to the heart. This is why they are more likely to become damaged and varicose over time.

Treatment Options
At Vein Specialists of the Carolinas, we offer two top-rated varicose vein treatments:

VNUS Closure
Also known as Venefit, the Vnus closure procedure delivers radiofrequency energy directly into varicose veins that causes them to seal shut during treatment. The treated veins are eventually reabsorbed by the body and blood is rerouted to healthy veins nearby. VNUS is an outpatient procedure typically performed under local anesthesia. Patients are usually back to regular activities the day after the procedure.

Considered the “gold standard” in treatment for spider veins and smaller varicose veins, sclerotherapy injects a sterile solution into the swollen vessel that cause the vein to seal shut and collapse. The vein is eventually eliminated through natural body processes, while blood flow is rerouted through healthy veins remaining in the area. Sclerotherapy often takes just a few minutes to complete and does not require any type of anesthesia. Patients may return to regular activities as soon as treatment is completed.

Why Now?
With minimally-invasive vein treatments available to eliminate your uncomfortable, unsightly varicose veins, now is the perfect time to say goodbye to those swollen vessels without putting a damper on your holiday festivities. Procedures can be performed quickly in our office and most patients are back to their daily schedules the same day or the day after treatment. Give yourself the gift that keeps on giving this holiday season by getting rid of those swollen veins for good.
