Q: How did I get spider veins on my legs?
A: Unattractive leg veins affect 80% of women so you’ve got quite a bit of company. The leading causes of spider and varicose veins are heredity, aging, pregnancy, hormonal changes, and obesity. We’re able to provide effective, non-surgical treatments to get rid of them without any downtime.
Q: Why do I need to wear my compression socks after my leg vein treatments?
A: When worn for several days after treatment, medical grade compression socks help keep those vein walls closed so that you heal faster and are more comfortable. You don’t have to worry about your wardrobe though; they come in many stylish options that often look just like a dress sock. We can’t forget to mention, that most extended health plans will offer some reimbursement so be sure to check with your insurance provider.
Q: Why do you want me to go for a walk right after my leg vein injections?
A: Once you’ve got your compression socks on, we ask you to go for a walk for about a half hour. With each step you take, your calf muscle pumps blood back up towards your heart to be re-oxygenated. Walking also helps circulate the microfoam solution and alleviate potential cramping. So, if you’re feeling a little sore the best thing you can do is put your compression socks on and go for a walk!
