venefitIf you’ve been living with varicose veins, most likely, you’re in pain, and/or you’re just embarrassed or disgusted by the sight of them. Although they are unsightly, varicose veins are indeed unhealthy and shouldn’t be ignored. Varicose veins are common with more than 30 million Americans suffering from them and other venous diseases; however, only 1.9 million people seek out treatment for the problem. When a person does seek out treat, and early on, diagnosing and treating the disease can halt the progression.

Luckily in today’s world, there are many minimally invasive treatment options that insurance will cover. These treatments can improve a person’s quality of life and potentially halt the onset and progression of Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). When a varicose vein isn’t treated it turns into CVI, which can cause leg swelling, skin damage, and ulcers.

Vein specialists, like Dr. Zuzga of West Florida Vein Center, offer treatments to get rid of and/or reduce the appearance of bulging and hidden varicose veins. Even if the veins have yet to cause you pain, it is in your best interest to have a doctor check them out. The earlier you get a diagnosis, the less likely you’ll have medical complications in the future.

Below, we will feature one specific treatment for varicose veins: Venefit Targeted Endovenous Therapy. This treatment is used for varicose veins and CVI; it is a minimally invasive segmental ablation treatment. Endovenous thermal ablation involves the insertion of a thin, flexible tube into a diseased vein and uses heat to seal it shut. This treatment utilizes radiofrequency energy to provide an even and uniform heat to contract the collagen in the vein walls, which will make them collapse and seal. After the diseased vein is sealed, the blood will re-route itself to the healthy veins.

This procedure comes with a quick recovery and return to everyday activities, and an improvement on the appearance in the veins.

The Venefit procedure has been proven to work in many clinical studies; it has shown to have long term effectiveness, and it comes with less pain and bruising than endovenous laser.
