Is Vein Treatment a Permanent Cure?

There is no Permanent Cure for Varicose Veins

If you suffer from painful and unsightly varicose veins, no doubt you’re looking for a permanent cure. Unfortunately, a permanent cure for spider and varicose veins has proven elusive for venous insufficiency patients and vein specialists. But several highly effective treatment options exist, and adherence to a few healthy lifestyle choices can help keep recurrences at bay.

Vein disease is a largely inherited condition that is both chronic and progressive. As we age, veins that once were normal degenerate or weaken, allowing blood that it can no longer support to flow backward, pooling in the veins and causing them bulge. Treatments like sclerotherapy and endovenous ablation can treat or eliminate diseased veins only as they surface. Thus, all varicose vein treatments are considered palliative, which means they can relieve, but not cure conditions.

Treatment Helps Symptoms of Varicose Veins

Varicose and spider vein treatment can vastly improve the appearance and alleviate the pain of diseased veins. They also can slow down vein disease’s progression, lengthening the intervals of time between necessary sessions. Combined with healthy lifestyle choices, treatment can help ensure your legs look and feel great for extended periods of time. These lifestyle choices include high-fiber, low sugar diets; plenty of water and exercise; nixing your smoking and alcohol habits; and raising your feet above your heart level when you sleep or rest.

Only an experienced vein specialist can determine the most effective course of treatment for your spider and varicose veins. Call 877-640-VEIN (8346) and schedule a consultation with the St. Johns Vein Center’s Dr. James St. George today.
