Eliminate Unattractive Varicose Veins
Varicose veins, which are very common – especially in women, are enlarged veins that can be blue, red, or flesh-colored, and they may or may not cause pain. They commonly appear on the lower legs. Some of the signs or symptoms of varicose veins include:
- Achy or heavy feeling in legs
- Worsened pain after sitting or standing for a long time.
- Burning, throbbing, muscle cramping and swelling in lower legs
- Itching around one or more of your veins
There are various causes of varicose veins, but here are some of the most commons causes:
- Weight gain/obesity
- Heredity/family history of varicose veins
- Hormonal changes/Menopause
- Regularly sitting or standing for long periods of time.
Here at Delray Beach Plastic Surgery, we use an out-patient, non-surgical treatment called sclerotherapy. It’s used to eliminate both varicose veins and spider veins. In this procedure, a doctor injects a solution (usually a salt solution) directly into the blood vessels or lymph vessels (veins) that causes them to shrink. The procedure usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes, and it does not leave scarring.
In addition to varicose vein treatment, we also offer many surgical and non-surgical treatments, including injectables/facial fillers, CoolSculpting, Laser Hair Removal, liposuction, breast augmentation, and more, at our state-of-the-art facility.
