Many New Year’s resolutions are to get in shape for the summer, including having the legs you’re happy to show off. No matter how well-intentioned we are, it’s sometimes difficult to maintain our New Year’s resolutions. One thing leads to another and suddenly the simple becomes complicated.
The outline below, however, demonstrates that not only is dealing with your varicose veins easy, it’s a good way to improve your physical and mental outlook, too.
Resolution for 2017 – Look better for the beach
- Get rid of those varicose veins
- Call the vein specialist
- Feel better
You may have noticed the early signs of varicose veins years ago, and maybe they weren’t troubling enough to do anything about at the time. But waiting longer if your legs ache, or a vein in your leg is ropy and discolored, might not be healthy.
And if the small patch of spidery red veins on your cheek is growing, putting off treatment won’t help it go away.
The Vein Institute of Connecticut makes it as painless as possible to get answers to your questions and to learn more about potential treatments. When you call our office, a customer service consultant will help you set up an appointment, answer your preliminary questions, and research your insurance so you know how much coverage it will provide.
Your first visit with Dr. Alex Afshar is free. He will examine your veins and describe what is causing the breakdown of veins in your legs or the eruption of spider veins on your hands or face.
He will describe the types of medical procedures available and help you decide whether to proceed. (Don’t be afraid of treatment. Modern varicose vein procedures, like sclerotherapy and radiofrequency ablation, are done in the office and allow you to return to regular activities within a day.)
Varicose veins often require a few treatments, but with a little guidance and support, you can feel and look better for the rest of the year.
