About :

Nearly one in every two adults 50 years or older develop varicose veins, which usually appear as swollen, twisted clumps of blue or purple blood vessels near the surface of the skin in the legs or pelvis. The condition is most common among women and older adults, but obesity, standing on the job, personal or family history of venous disease, and hormonal changes before and after pregnancy increase the risk for developing varicose veins.

Peter Lawrence, M.D., director of UCLA's Gonda (Goldschmied) Vascular Center, notes that it is important for patients to be evaluated and treated by an expert in venous disease. "There are many new approaches to varicose veins and venous insufficiency. To prevent recurrence, a comprehensive approach is needed," he notes.

"It's not just a cosmetic problem," says Cheryl Hoffman, M.D., medical director of UCLA's Imaging and Interventional Center in Manhattan Beach, who treats superficial varicose veins using minimally invasive techniques. "Varicose veins can be painful." The condition occurs when valves that facilitate blood flow between the heart and the legs begin to leak and cause blood to pool in the legs. Common symptoms include leg swelling, muscle cramps, soreness, tiredness and aching in the legs, itchiness around the vein, skin discoloration and ulcers.

"Once those superficial veins stop working, they really aren't needed," she says. "In most cases, we can easily close off problem veins using a catheter to direct laser or radiofrequency energy to heat the inside the blood vessels." Ultrasound is used to extensively map the vein physiology and blood flow and to guide the procedure. Unlike more invasive approaches, this technique, called endovenous thermal ablation, causes less pain, bleeding and bruising and enables patients to return to normal activities faster.

She should have her hair pulled back under a cap and wear a mask because she’s doing an operation. Unsanitary.

I had this done (not for vericose veins) and it was the absolute best decision I ever made. Had results immediately. Doesn't hurt at all and I feel amazing! Anyone thinking about going through it do it you will feel so much better. I had back surgery 3 months ago and the ablation even helped with the pain I was still having. The back pain was gone after the first ablation! 👍 So exciting!!!

Hey I had phlebectomy done. What I'm curious about is what happens when, say you remove the affected area. The rest of the vein, how does it heal internally. Like say you had a garden hose with water running through it, if you cut out the middle section whime water is rubbing, how do you not internally bleed m, how does the "ends" not just pour blood intenally instantly. How do these veins heal and what happens to the rest of the network of the affected vein that was removed. If they seal up. Wouldn't strenuous things potentially cause them to re open.

It's simple to understand that keeping things simple and disciplined is the formula that make most of these remedies work. As long as you stick with it, it would be almost impossible not to see those varicose veins wash away. There's this method I found in googl, in Mabel Ridenbel's website, that sums up everything quite elegantly.

There are a lot of strategies and methods out there in which promises to help one earn a good deal money in a short time period and I`ve tried them all. At that time, one of my buddies introduced me to "shocking soto press" you have to check it up on Google. My daily average earnings is one hundred bucks. I strongly recommend it.

I`ve got serious issues before till I discovered a solution and that is the program which permitted me to make income over 147 USD daily. Believe me, I`ve tested out several other websites that offered survey jobs and promised a lot of cash, however I got small achievements. This website is one of the best among its rivals. Go to the search engine and type "zimo unique plan" on Google and you`ll discover significant aspects of this plan. This is something which would certainly catch your interest..

I've found that if I stick a needle in the veins just below my skin several times over a few months they eventually almost disappear. I do it like when we were kids & would stick a needle under the first layer of skin on our fingers to show off. I don't feel it but it bleeds like crazy since I penetrate the vein. This is NOT recommended. You should go to a medical professional. I'm just curious if anyone else does this because I mainly do it to see the heavy flow of very dark venous blood
