Covington, LA. La Bella Vita Laser and Vein Center announces a new article in which they answer a question they’re often asked by patients: “Can I get rid of my varicose veins by losing weight?” According to these Covington vein treatmentspecialists, as much as they’d love to say “Yes,” they can’t. Once veins have become diseased or damaged enough to become varicose, they can’t be fixed or repaired with either drugs or surgery. However, they can be removed, and easily.
According to Dr. Randall S. Juleff, medical director of one of the best New Orleans vein treatment centers, “thanks to medical advances, eliminating varicose veins permanently is now a procedure that can be performed in the comfort of a New Orleans vein clinic, without the need to go to a hospital. The procedures are so gentle that many patients have their varicose veins removed on their lunch hour, and then go back to work. And there is no ‘recovery time’ necessary, because there is nothing to recover from.”
These New Orleans vein specialists hope that this article reaches a wide audience and helps them to realize that permanent relief from their varicose veins is just a phone call away. To learn more about varicose veins and how they are treated, visit the clinic’s website.
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, microphlebetomy, and other laser treatments.
