9 Myths About Varicose Veins:

  • MYTH #1: VARICOSE VEINS ARE ONLY COSMETIC
    Of course, there is some cosmetic component behind the decision to treat varicose veins. You may feel like your legs look unsightly while wearing shorts, dresses or skirts. Spider veins are a smaller version of varicose veins that are purely cosmetic. But, there is a medical reason to treat varicose veins, as well. Varicose veins can be uncomfortable or painful, cause swelling, increase your risk of blood clots and bleed a lot when injured.

  • MYTH #2: ONLY WOMEN GET VARICOSE VEINS
    Close to one third of all adults have varicose veins. 50 percent of women and 40 percent of men in the United States will develop varicose veins at some point in their life. 

  • MYTH #3: VARICOSE VEINS ONLY AFFECT THE ELDERLY
    While the risk does increase as we age, even young adults can develop varicose veins.
  • MYTH #4: THERE IS NO TREATMENT FOR VARICOSE VEINS
    There are actually quite a few treatment options for varicose veins. Southern Dermatology even offers three categories of treatments to find one that works best with your lifestyle and needs. There’s even a few things you can do to reduce your chances of developing varicose veins. Elevate your legs above your heart for 30 minutes, three times a day to help decrease the pressure in your veins. You can also lose weight if you’re overweight or obese and engage in regular physical activity to keep your blood moving.
  • MYTH #5: THE ONLY TREATMENT OPTION IS SURGERY
    While it’s true surgery used to be the only treatment option for varicose and spider veins, that’s not the case anymore. Lasers can be a non-invasive treatment option for varicose veins. Surgery is still an option and may be preferred in some situations, but it’s not the only option.
  • MYTH #6 TREATMENT IS PAINFUL
    The traditional surgery could involve a painful recovery but many patients report faster healing and less pain using the minimally invasive procedures.
  • MYTH #7: THE VEINS WILL ALWAYS COME BACK AFTER TREATMENT
    While the risk of varicose veins recurring after surgery is increased, the varicose veins will not always return. Minimally invasive treatments like lasers actually boast a lower risk of reoccurrence.
  • MYTH #9: IF I HAVEN’T HAD KIDS I CAN’T BE TREATED FOR VARICOSE VEINS
    The only time women cannot be treated for varicose veins is during pregnancy. Otherwise, before, during or after adding to your family, patients will be able to undergo treatment for varicose veins.
