If you are reading this article, there is a strong chance that you’re tired of trying to “live with” your varicose veins, and are beginning to think seriously about seeking treatment and finally doing something about them. Good. This is a big step, and we congratulate you on taking it.
There are many reasons why you should seek treatment from a vein clinic in Covington. Varicose veins are unattractive and uncomfortable, and worse, they’re bad for your overall health. They impair your immune system and increase your risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. So now that you are finally thinking of getting rid of them, what’s the best way to do it?
First, seek treatment as soon as it is feasible to do so
Every day you delay treatment is another day that vein disease has the chance to erode your health and make you miserable. Ignoring your swollen, discolored veins and hoping that they’ll magically get better (they won’t…they’ll get worse) only allows them to turn more quickly into potentially crippling disorders. The sooner you act, the sooner you’ll begin to feel healthy again.
Second, be completely honest with your Louisiana Vein Doctor
When you make an appointment with La Bella Vita Laser and Vein Center, you are consulting with the best vein doctors in Covington. So tell them the truth. If you smoke, admit it. Smoking affects your vein health, and your vein doctors can help you stop. If you hardly get any exercise at all, admit it…don’t claim that you go to the gym or walk more than you do. Your lifestyle can make a difference in the types of treatments they can recommend to you, and your doctors need to know what exactly that lifestyle is.
Third, commit to your Covington vein treatment
By “commit” we don’t mean that you have to marry our doctors. They’re a good catch, but there is no need to go that far. What we’re saying is that to fully benefit from modern vein treatment, you need to be willing to take better care of yourself after the actual treatments have been completed. Vein removal procedures such as sclerotherapy and endovenous laser therapy only take one or two visits to our offices, and then the swollen veins are gone. But once the varicose veins are gone, you should plan on complying with follow-up instructions that your doctor gives you, such as wearing compression stockings to speed healing, stopping smoking and other risky behaviors, and getting more exercise.
The best way to benefit from varicose vein treatment is to get some…now
Don’t just think about it. That’s a good first step, but now you really need to act if you want to stop being bullied by your varicose veins. Pick up your phone today and call or go online and arrange for an initial consultation. A couple of months from now, when you look at your legs in the mirror and don’t immediately frown and feel bad about yourself, you’ll be really glad you did.
