What are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen, dilated, and twisted veins that appear on the legs and feet. They are generally identified by their dark or blue colour and bulging or twisted appearance.

For many people, varicose veins are nothing more than a cosmetic problem. However, some people may experience pain and discomfort due to these veins in the legs area. Similarly, in rare cases, these veins can pose serious health problems.

Fortunately, multiple varicose veins treatments in Dubai are available to address this condition. 

Causes and Risk Factors of Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are generally caused by the weakening of valves and walls of veins. This happens when vein walls are overstretched, making the valves weak. This results in the blood leaking, flowing backward, and accumulating, causing the veins to swell and enlarge.

The exact reason the walls and valves of veins weaken is not known yet, but several factors are generally thought to contribute to this process. These factors include:

  • Gender
  • Age
  • Genetics
  • The nature of work
  • Being overweight
  • Pregnancy

Symptoms of Varicose Veins

The most distinguishable symptom of varicose veins is their appearance; these veins generally appear purple or blue and are usually bulged or twisted. Some people with these veins on their legs may also feel discomfort and pain.

Aside from their looks, varicose veins may also accompany the following symptoms:

  • A feeling of heaviness and discomfort in the legs
  • Swelling in the ankles and feet
  • Throbbing or burning sensation in the legs
  • Itchy and dry skin over varicose veins

Varicose Veins Treatment Options

Varicose veins can be treated with several minimally and non-invasive procedures. Our vascular surgeons will choose a preferable treatment for you once you go through a thorough consultation. Some of the prominent treatments for varicose treatments are discussed below:

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is highly effective for varicose veins. This treatment involves injecting a medicated solution into the affected veins. This causes those veins to turn into scars and reroutes their blood to healthier veins. Over time, these scars merge with the surrounding tissues and eventually disappear or become less visible.

Endovenous Laser Treatment

This treatment involves using a laser to heat the varicose veins, resulting in their closure and reduction. The laser energy shrinks the varicose vein, and its blood flows through the surrounding healthy veins. This procedure results in the treated vein becoming a scar, which then fades with time.

Radiofrequency Ablation

This minimally invasive treatment uses ultrasound energy to heat up a varicose vein and damage it from the inside. This results in the development of scar tissue, which closes the vein from the inside. The scar is usually noticeable initially but becomes less visible after some time.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure during which superficial varicose veins are simply stripped off the skin. The surgeon or practitioner makes a small incision near the affected veins and removes them. This process may not even need stitches afterward.

Non-Invasive Treatments for Varicose Veins

  • Avoid prolonged static squatting position
  • Wear special compression stockings 
  • Start working out in the gym to strengthen the muscles in your legs, which improves circulation and venous return
  • Stick to an abstemious regimen
  • Avoid alcohol and drinks high in sugar 
  • Ensure you do not apply too much pressure to the area with varicose veins

What are the Benefits of Varicose Veins Treatment?

The primary benefit of varicose veins treatment is it relieves pain and discomfort in the leg area. Some other benefits include:

  • Availability of non-invasive treatment options
  • Cost-effective treatment
  • Relieve pain in the leg area
  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Help in boosting self-confidence
  • Improved mobility and sleep

How Can I Get Rid of Varicose Veins Without Surgery?

A number of non-surgical and non-invasive options are available for treating varicose veins, including laser varicose veins treatment, sclerotherapy, radiofrequency, and thermal ablation.

What Foods are Bad for Varicose Veins?

A healthy diet can help manage body weight, which is beneficial since obesity is a risk factor for varicose veins. For an individual with varicose veins, the doctors advise to avoid eating sugary and salty food items and refined carbohydrates. Similarly, alcoholic beverages and fried food products should also be avoided. A healthy diet can help manage body weight, which is beneficial since obesity is a risk factor for varicose veins.

What is the Most Effective Treatment for Varicose Veins?

Although surgical treatments provide the best results for varicose veins removal, most people want to avoid surgeries. Sclerotherapy and laser treatments are excellent non-surgical alternatives for such people.

How Much Does Varicose Vein Treatment Cost?

The cost of removing varicose veins varies from patient to patient, depending on a number of factors. Some of these factors include the severity of the appearance of the bulged veins, the geographical location of the clinic, the expertise of the doctor, skin type and condition, treatment technique, and desired results. 

Is It Worth Getting Varicose Veins Removed?

Varicose veins removal relieves typical symptoms like pain, itching, and swelling. This treatment also improves your legs’ appearance. Hence, getting these veins removed clinically is undoubtedly worth it.

Which Exercises are Best to Prevent Varicose Veins?

The most beneficial exercises for varicose veins are walking, running, swimming, cycling, yoga, rebounding, leg lifts, calf raises, and ankle rotations.

Do Varicose Veins Come Back After Removal?

While treatment can remove varicose veins, it doesn’t guarantee prevention of their future occurrence. Another reason for recurrence of varicose veins is when the root cause – such as chronic venous insufficiency – is left untreated. 

How Long Do Varicose Vein Injections Last?

Veins that respond to these injections develop scar tissue that eventually merges with the surrounding tissues. As a result, those particular veins disappear forever. However, new varicose veins can develop in the treated area and surrounding tissues.
