How Vein Treatments Can Improve Your Daily Life
About 50 to 55 percent of women and 40 to 45 percent of men in the United States suffer with some type of vein issue. Varicose veins affect half of the population 50 years and older and 15 to 25 percent of all adults.
Symptoms of varicose veins directly affects the lives of those living
with the condition. Not only are problem veins unsightly, often resulting in visible bulging and discolored veins at the surface of the skin, but the veins can also cause discomfort in the lower body, and more stress in your daily life.
Common symptoms of varicose veins in the legs include:
- Aching pain that may get worse after sitting or standing for a long time
- Throbbing or cramping
- Rash that is itchy or irritated
- Skin changes (darkening and/or thickening)
- Restless legs
If you’ve been considering treatment for your varicose veins, here are a few ways Dr. Sassan Kaveh and his staff at Alpha Vein Clinic can help you regain your confidence and improve your quality of life.
The visible symptoms of varicose veins can really take a toll on one’s confidence. Prior to vein treatments, enlarged, protruding and discolored veins can be both embarrassing and unsightly, leaving those affected to cover up their condition with clothing they might not normally wear
during the warming months of summer, or they might avoid popular hangouts such as pools and beaches due to not wanting to show off their symptoms. Treatments for the condition will leave patients with smoother and healthier looking legs giving them the confidence boost they need to get back to their daily activities.
After your veins are treated and healed, you will begin to notice your painful and uncomfortable symptoms dissipate. The swelling, heaviness and aching will go away now that the blood has been rerouted to healthy veins and effectively pumped back to your heart. Any cramping you had experienced before will also fade due to better blood circulation.
Treatments available at Alpha Vein Clinic:
We offer the latest minimally invasive procedures treat varicose veins, including:
Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA)
This treatment closes the diseased vein with carefully controlled heat. This is done by inserting a small catheter into the affected vein while monitoring it’s position with via ultrasound. The blood is naturally rerouted to a nearby
healthy vein. Over time, the treated vein shrinks and is absorbed by the body. The procedure is minimally invasive, typically pain free and covered by most insurance companies.
ClariVein: Mechano-Chemical Ablation (MOCA)
This latest development in the treatment of vein issues is both safe and effective with little recovery time following the procedure. The ClariVein treatment uses mechanical agitation of the lining of the vein together with a sclerosing solution to effectively seal the problem vein. This
procedure results in minimal discomfort, minimal bruising and a quick return to normal activity. The procedure is currently covered by several insurance companies with more being added as medical professionals continue to show its health benefits. Dr. Sassan Kaveh is one of the only vein specialists in Nevada to offer ClariVein.
