Plenty of ailments look and sound worse than they really are. Think of the froggy voice that sounds brittle but doesn’t feel scratchy, the rash that looks inflamed but doesn’t burn and the swollen gland that looks tender but doesn’t hurt.
But varicose veins don’t belie their unsightly appearance. They can be every bit as uncomfortable and painful as they appear.
For the people who live with varicose veins—or those veins that are enlarged and gnarled, and usually located in the leg or foot—they can cause another type of discomfort: the pain of embarrassment and the tendency to keep them hidden at all costs.
In addition to ridding you of the pain and embarrassment of varicose veins (or the precursor: spider veins), the treatments will eliminate your symptoms, too, including achiness, swelling, tingling, fatigue and a general sense of restlessness.
Perhaps you, too, have tried to alleviate the physical and psychological trauma of varicose veins but have found that your own efforts are unsuccessful. So make an appointment with one of our experienced and compassionate physicians. Our doctors, technicians and patients are a major reason why Allure has become Michigan’s premier Vein Center. During a consultation, we’ll discuss your history with varicose veins and then decide which treatment makes the most sense for you. Allure’s treatments include:
- Endovenous Laser Ablation vein therapy, in which a laser is used to eliminate varicose veins—permanently.
- Microfoam Therapy, in which injections are used to obliterate the veins. Patients resume their normal activities immediately after concluding this treatment, making it as popular as it is effective.
- Schlerotherapy, in which sclerovent is injected directly into the veins. Sometimes, multiple treatments are necessary, but they take only 15 to 30 minutes each.
- Microphlebectomy, which begins with an ultrasound and a local anesthetic before the veins are removed. No downtime is required from this procedure, and they report excellent clinical and cosmetic results. A major benefit to this procedure is that there are no incisions so this is a scarless treatment.
At Allure, we hope that knowing you have medical options—and realizing that you don’t have to live with varicose veins one day longer than you choose to—fills you with hope and optimism. Of course, you’re probably brimming with questions, so contact us today to set up a free consultation and be sure to bring your questions with you. Then begin to embrace the idea of starting a new chapter in your life, free of varicose veins once and for all, and enjoying a renewed sense of your own allure.
