Winter is here and it’s time for the warm clothes to come out of the closet. The long coats can help in hiding those cosmetically unpleasant, painful spider veins and varicose veins on the legs. Unlike in summer, when you want to wear your favorite short dresses for but can’t. Wearing clothes as per one’s own comfort zone and looking good is so very essential for a confident you. However, people who have varicose veins are often tired of them and want to know more about how they can treat them. Dr. Ashish D. Dhadas, Varicose Veins expert, Samata Hospital, Dombivli, Mumbai explains the reasons behind those ugly-looking veins on your legs and how you can get rid of them.

 

If you’ve been putting off varicose veins treatment for a while, you may have good reason to make the call before the cooler season ends. While the specialists can perform this procedure any time of the year, patients often find the healing process easier and more convenient during the winter. Your legs will look great for summer if you wear compression socks and avoid UV rays after your laser treatment this winter.

 

Causes:

 

Varicose veins occur when veins do not function properly. As blood flows through a vein, the cup-like valves alternately open to allow blood through, and then close to prevent backflow. When these valves fail, blood collects in the veins rather than continuing toward your heart. Instead of flowing from one valve to the next, the blood continues to pool in the vein, increasing venous pressure and the likelihood of congestion while causing the vein to enlarge.

 

Any condition that excessively pressures the legs or abdomen can lead to varicose veins. A previous leg injury may cause deep venous thrombosis, which can damage the valves resulting in varicosities.  Contrary to popular belief, sitting with crossed legs will not cause varicose veins, although it can aggravate an existing condition.

 

Treatment: 

• Stay physically active to strengthen your leg muscles and enhance circulation. To do so, you can opt for running, brisk walking, or dancing.  Remember not to go overboard with these activities.

• Try to stay healthy by maintaining a proper weight to take that pressure off from your legs, knees, and feet.

• Do not wear stilettos for too long, avoid crossing your legs for too long while sitting and if you stand for too long, shift your weight from one leg to another every few minutes.

 

 Treatment:

 

Every patient is different, and each has findings that require specific treatment for relief of symptoms and correction of vein problems. A single treatment or a combination of minimally invasive approaches may be necessary. CLaCS (Cryo Laser and Cryo sclerotherapy) is a painless procedure done under local anesthesia. The high flow of ice-cold air directed onto the skin at the site of laser or needle application removes the discomfort and most patients have little pain from the treatment. The patient returns to work and usual activities with 4 -6 hrs. Exercise is permitted as well after 24 hrs.
