Covington, LA. La Bella Vita Laser and Vein Center is releasing a new article in which they discuss the erroneous belief that vein disease treatment is “merely cosmetic,” and the damage that this false belief can cause. According to these New Orleans vein specialists, vein disease is very much a real disease, and one that needs to be taken seriously to avoid negative impact on overall health and well-being.
According to Dr. Randall S. Juleff, medical director of the vein clinic in New Orleans, “Many patients with vein disease resist treatment by trained Louisiana vein doctors because they mistake the cosmetic ‘side effects’ of vein disease treatment – the elimination of unsightly varicose veins and spider veins – for the purpose of the treatment. Dr. Juleff wants patients to know that the underlying cause of varicose veins is much more serious than its surface symptoms, and that left untreated it can indicate circulatory problems that can impair your overall health and increase your risk of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
These New Orleans vein specialists hope that their article reaches a wide audience and helps them to realize that vein treatment is NOT “just cosmetic,” and that they can improve their overall health by seeking treatment for their vein health.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
The vein disease conditions varicose veins and spider veins affect many women and men in the U.S. The smaller, red-to-purple colored spider veins are located close to the surface of the skin and tend to present mostly cosmetic problems. Varicose veins, however, tend to be bigger in size and appear as more swollen, tangled and blue in color. Varicose veins can be painful, and may limit a patient’s activities.
In the past, patients with varicose veins or spider veins faced invasive, often painful treatment options. But today, advances in technology give patients a number of minimally-invasive and virtually painless options for effective vein treatment. Some of the best treatments to eliminate problem veins with few side-effects or downtime include sclerotherapy, endovenous laser therapy, endovenous radiofrequency ablation, microphlebectomy, and other laser treatments.
