‘Tis the season for vein treatment
This is the most wonderful time of the year. We get bundled up in our coats and scarves and admire the twinkling lights all over town. However, for millions of Americans, a leisurely winter stroll means achy and tired legs. If you are one of these individuals who have legs that tire easily, and feel heavy you may have Chronic Venous Insufficiency.
Winter and CVI
Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) is vastly prominent in the United States. The symptoms of this chronic condition include restless legs, pain, aching, swelling, leg cramps and a tired heavy feeling in your lower legs. CVI occurs due to inefficient valves in vein walls. These one way valves fail to push blood up the legs to the heart . Blood becomes stagnant and pools in the legs, causing harsh symptoms.
CVI progresses and can lead to skin discoloration, ulcers and dry, flaky skin. The only way to stop venous insufficiency from progressing and eliminate symptoms is to seek treatment. We understand that the holidays are an extremely busy time of the year. At Alpha Vein Clinic, we will work with you to create a treatment plan that suits your daily life. Varicose Veins Las Vegas.

The Season of Risk Factors
Another reason to seek treatment this time of year is the long hours we travel to see family during the holiday season. Travel is a Chronic Venous Insufficiency risk factor. If you want to assist symptoms, try wearing medical grade compression stockings in the car or plane(Only if your doctor prescribes it though). Compression stockings relieve symptoms and slow the progression of varicose veins, assisting circulation. Risk factors include:
● Spending extended periods of time sitting or standing
● Family history of varicose veins
● Hormonal changes
