December is a busy month, especially for us women. Shopping for Christmas gifts, getting the Christmas cleaning done, baking cookies, cooking meals and hosting parties – everything we can do to make that Christmas Day even more special than the year before. But now that Christmas is over, here comes the end of December and the beginning of the New Year 2015 – and what would be a better reward for all the hard work than starting the New Year with healthy, smooth looking legs!
Varicose veins will not just magically disappear by the stroke of midnight, so if you’re looking for a New Year’s resolution while everyone else is singing Auld Lang Syne, how about you explore your varicose vein treatment options? You’re definitely not the only one facing this dilemma – chronic venous insufficiency affects up to 30% of population, and 25 million Americans have varicose veins – this makes problems with veins one of the most common chronic conditions in North America!
You might already be experiencing some mild symptoms of varicose veins: full and heavy legs, night cramps, ankle and leg swelling. Unfortunately, this is just the beginning, so find a vein specialist – phlebologist or vascular surgeon – and get your veins treated as soon as possible. The longer you keep waiting, the more complicated and costly the treatment will be. The medical specialty of phlebology (diagnosis and treating venous disorders) has advanced greatly within the last few decades and treating vein-related problems is now a walk in the park.
Most of the specialized clinics offer modern procedures that are minimally invasive, they have no downtime, and pretty much zero risks. You can go home on the same day with relatively little pain or discomfort, and who knows, you might even be able to get a New Year’s special deal! For 2015, make a New Year’s resolution that counts and get your varicose veins treated!
