One of the most frequently asked questions we get as a Nashville vein specialist is whether or not vein treatment will make varicose veins go away forever. While it’s easy to answer “yes,” there is more to it. Keep reading to learn how varicose veins work and what the best vein doctors in Nashville might do for you.
Will vein disease treatment in Nashville make my veins permanently disappear?
To answer this fully, you should first understand what varicose veins are. In short, they are damaged veins that no longer push blood out of the lower body. This usually happens due to a condition called chronic venous insufficiency. Instead of moving blood back up to the heart and lungs for re-oxygenation, blood and fluids become trapped inside the poorly functioning vein, causing it to swell up and overstretch. The result is the bulging, bluish diseased vein you are likely to see along the back of your legs.
The bad news is that once veins succumb to CVI, they can’t be “cured.” You can exercise, wear compression stockings, and lose weight to help improve your circulation, but none of these measures will reverse the damage.
The good news is that vein removal in Nashville can permanently get rid of the affected veins. This will help you look and feel better by removing the unsightly vein and restoring circulation through healthier leg veins.
Vein removal sounds great, but what happens later?
Despite vein removal, however, new varicose veins can form. This is why we always recommend you take up healthy, active lifestyle habits even after vein treatment to help maintain healthy veins.
