Varicose veins are extremely annoying for many people because they are not only unattractive but also cause pain and a lot of discomfort in the legs and ankles, sometimes all over the leg, but there is a treatment for varicose veins that really works . So there is hope.
The following explains why varicose veins occur and what you can do to relieve certain symptoms while you wait for your treatment or when deciding whether you are eligible for this medical alternative.
The science of enlarged and painful veins
Why do veins get bigger?
Veins are hermetically sealed blood vessels that carry blood through a person’s body from tissue to the heart. The veins enlarge when some of the valves in the middle of the deep and superficial veins of a person’s leg stop working properly.
There are two main systems in a person’s veins:
• Deep (deep) veins
o These veins are in the middle of each muscle and carry around 90% of the blood to the heart
• Superficial (surface) veins
o These veins are often visible and are located directly under the skin, while the superficial veins are not protected by muscles like the surface veins. This means that the superficial veins are not as strong and the likelihood of varicose veins is greater.
The superficial veins carry blood through the skin and the external areas of the deep veins by connecting the passages (the perforation veins).
Blood flows from each leg to the heart:
• Each leg muscle covers the deep veins and pushes blood up
• Each vein has so-called unidirectional valves which help the blood to rise and not to rise
• When the blood rises, each valve opens so that the blood can pass
• If the heart beats every time, the valves close short so that the blood does not flow back
If the valves of these two main systems are not working properly, blood can flow in the wrong direction because the force is greater in the deep veins than in the surface veins.
• Instead of collecting blood from the external veins (superficial or superficial veins), the deeper veins could essentially regrow in the superficial veins
• This case leads to an increase in strength in the noticeable veins
• When blood collects in the superficial veins and the strength of these veins gradually increases, the valves begin to fail
• Over time, perhaps years later, each valve fails individually
• In this case, the superficial veins widen due to the extra blood and pressure and cause varicose veins
How to relieve the pain and discomfort of varicose veins at home
• Obese people should try to lose weight
• A support tube, similar to tights, available in a pharmacy helps some people
A modern and effective alternative to the treatment of varicose veins
VNUS closing process:
A slightly intrusive treatment to relieve and enlarge varicose veins, less pain and less bruising, especially compared to alternative treatments and modern surgical procedures to remove the veins (or compared to laser surgery). When people use the occlusion method, doctors close unhealthy veins by implanting an occlusion catheter that enters a vein and heats the venous walls with RF power to a controlled temperature. When the vein is heated, the collagen (a natural protein in the body) in the venous wall shrinks and the veins close. Once the vein is closed, blood can flow naturally and is redirected to healthier veins.
Venous deficiency (or venous reflux) occurs when a valve that normally lets blood flow from the legs to the heart is broken or unhealthy.
Benefits of the closing process:
• Not as invasive as other varicose vein treatments
• Medically proven surgical pain after surgery
• Less recovery time after surgery
• Excellent medical results
• Cosmetically attractive
