Do You Have Leg, Hand Or Facial Veins You Want To Remove?

It is hard to keep your attention diverted when facing vein issues that aren’t out of sight. Although veins on your face or hands are not unhealthy, inflamed veins on hands and face are sometimes just absolutely annoying. Additionally, you might have varicose or spider veins, and they both are treatable. Due to advanced laser treatment, it is easy to restore the blood flow or reduce varicose and spider veins.

Your heart pumps blood full of oxygen and nutrients and pass it through your arteries. After that, your veins take the blood back to your heart from different parts of your body. The valves in your veins ensure a one-way path flowing blood back to your heart. However, during this process, there is a possibility of blood leakage into the lower part of your body if your vein valves don’t work properly. As time passes, the amount of blood stuck increases in the vein, and it builds pressure that damages the walls of the veins. As a result, your veins will grow larger than normal.

Hand Veins

We always wish to have a youthful and flawless appearance, and some people want to improve the look of their hands. People look for perfect and safer ideas to ensure their sophistication. Our age tends to show up faster on our hands more than any other part of our body. Some veins become bulgy due to loss of vein elasticity, the water content of tissues, collagen, and fat.

As the years pass, fatty tissues in your hands diminish, and the elasticity of your skin increasedue to which your hand veins look swollen and ropy.

Procedure To Remove Hand Veins

A very simple laser treatment option is sclerotherapy. Using a unique device known as a catheter, doctors visualize the damaged veins. After that, they use a tiny needle and direct it gently, with extremely effective medicine into the affected veins.

The sclerosing treatment causes the walls of the veins to fall and heal through the natural process. The best part about sclerosing is you can continue with your regular routine immediately.

Painless sclerotherapy is most preferred for hand veins, and the whole procedure takes almost 15-20 minutes to complete. After returning to your regular activities, it would be better to wear compression gloves for around 12 hours of your day.

Resuming your daily routine doesn’t mean you should start exercising; you can visit your gym after one or two days of treatment. There is a high possibility that the veins will not vanish entirely after the first treatment. For best results, you might require 1-3 treatments.

Sclerotherapy of hand veins is a safe procedure. There have been no difficulties regarding hand injections for more than 30 years. After the treatment, there will be a little black and blue mild swelling for almost 24 hours. Sclerotherapy treatment is the best type of hand veins therapy. Also, some doctors rarely use mini-phlebectomy too.

Facial Veins

Veins on the face appear in all sizes and shapes. There are tiny, red spiders veins on the nose and cheeks. However, there are a massive amount of facial veins. Due to advanced technology, you can quickly get rid of these facial blemishes. These advanced treatments follow effective and safe procedures.

People often refer to facial veins as small broken blood vessels, spider veins, broken capillaries, facial telangiectasia, or rosacea veins. They can appear as a tiny red or blue thread on cheeks or nose areas and large blue veins around your eye or smile lines.

Procedure To Remove Facial Veins

The treatment of facial veins will depend on the location and diameter of the veins. Doctors and cosmetologists evaluate each case individually. After evaluation, they recommend performing either sclerotherapy or laser facial therapy. However, the large bluish veins respond quite well to sclerotherapy. So, it would be better to consider sclerotherapy in this scenario.

Sclerotherapy has few advantages, like polarizing lenses, better magnification, and tinier needles. Tiny needles will allow you to inject the medicine in smaller facial veins as well. However, laser therapy treats all the leftover small red veins. It is easy to treat facial veins with sclerotherapy.   You may treat tiny red lines or matted telangiectasia.

Leg Veins

Spider veins and varicose veins are twisted and swollen veins. They usually appear on your legs due to poor blood circulation. However, you will witness that majority of women have varicose veins and spider veins. Because of pregnancy, obesity, and older age, the risk of varicose veins will increase more than usual.

Varicose veins of your legs are often painless, and usually, they do not cause any health issues. But you can remove them with different methods of treatment. The treatments for varicose veins include sclerotherapy and foam sclerotherapy. You can also use cyro sclerotherapy, duplex-guided sclerotherapy, and endovenous laser therapy.

Vascular Surgery

vascular-vein-artery-system-human-treatment-nyc-03What is vascular surgery? The vascular or circulatory system is your body’s way of transporting oxygen and essential nutrients to different parts while taking away waste materials and carbon dioxide. It includes arteries carrying oxygen-rich blood from your heart and veins, bringing the deoxygenated blood back to the heart. A patient undergoes vascular surgery when they have a disease affecting the vascular system. These diseases mainly occur in the arteries, veins, or in the lymphatic system.

Vascular Diseases

vascular-disease-cosmetic-treatment--02Arterial diseases include Arteriosclerosis, the thickening, or hardening of the artery walls. This condition restricts blood flow to tissue and organs. Atherosclerosis is a specific type of Arteriosclerosis in which a build-up of fats and cholesterol blocks blood flow to the arteries. The aneurysm is another condition in which there are bulges in the blood vessels. If you do not seek treatment for these conditions, they can lead to a heart attack.

Similarly, many disorders can happen within the lymphatic system, as well. Lymphedema is a common condition that causes swelling of arm or leg because of lymphatic fluid accumulating in the vessels. Because the vascular system is so complex, complications can arise from anywhere.

Symptoms of Vascular Diseases

vascular-vein-system-body-medical-treatment-01Vascular diseases are common as people age. Most vascular diseases do not show symptoms at an early stage, and so people do not realize that they are suffering from any disease. If you experience any of these symptoms, you may have vascular disease or disorder that needs treatment. Varicose veins and spider veins are some of the common vein disorders in which veins become very apparent or form a spider-like pattern under the skin.

Peripheral Artery Disease

  • Hair loss on legs
  • Weakness and pain in legs
  • Lethargy
  • Numbness in legs
  • Brittle toenails, slow toenail growth
  • Shiny or pale blue appearance of leg
  • Ulcers or sores on the leg
  • Foot or leg may feel cold
  • Erectile Dysfunction

Aortic Aneurysm

  • Sudden back or abdominal pain
  • Sweaty skin
  • Pain spreading from abdomen to leg
  • Increased heart rate
  • Shock or unconsciousness

Types of Vascular Surgeries

Treatment of vascular diseases mainly includes surgical operating on the aorta, carotid arteries, and the lower body extremities: femoral, iliac, and tibial arteries. Vascular surgeries also involve treating Iliac vein compression syndrome and varicose vein. Common types of vascular surgeries include:

Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology is a diagnostic surgery that provides a minimally invasive image guide. This helps in correct diagnosing or treating vascular disease. If you have clear symptoms of vascular disease, your physician would suggest that you consult a vascular surgeon who will most likely ask you to have an Interventional Radiotherapy. There is a wide range of Interventional Radiology depending upon the vascular disease. Some involve opening and narrowing of blocked vessels using a balloon while others use metal stents. Other surgical options for IR include laser therapy and catheter-directed surgery.

Most patients leave the hospital after 24 hours of the surgery. However, if there is too much pain, you will need to stay. The recovery time is between one to two weeks. You will be able to continue your normal routine afterward, but make sure to take enough rest.

Endovenous Laser Treatment

endovenous-laser-vascular-evlt-treatment-nyc-04Endovenous Laser Treatment or EVLT is the latest vascular surgery option. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure mainly for treating varicose veins. ELT is ultrasound-guided to treat abnormal veins. This procedure uses an optical laser injected minimally and diminishes the abnormal vein. ELT gives minimal pain and very quick recovery.

Open Aortic Surgery

Open aortic surgery or open aortic repair visualizes and controls aorta. This surgical procedure mainly treats aneurysm of the thoracic (chest) and abdominal arteries. Although the surgery is a little complicated and has a long recovery time, it is necessary when there is a risk of rupturing. The surgeon will open up the abdomen and puts a clamp on the aorta or below the aneurysm. The surgeon will cut and remove the aneurysm, replacing it with an artificial man-made aorta.

The part where there will be an incision will feel sore and pain. You will stay in the hospital for a few days to recover. The complete recovery will take around 4 to 6 weeks or even more. Within two to three weeks, you will be able to do your normal activities but do not lift heavy objects until your recovery completes.

Risks of Vascular Surgery

The risks of vascular surgeries are more or less similar. They include blood clotting, heart attack, and infection. Therefore, it is crucial to have vascular surgery from an experienced and certified vascular surgeon. Before surgery, you must stop taking any blood-thinning medication like aspirin. Tell your surgeon what other medication you are taking before the surgery.
