3 Varicose Veins Myths Debunked: The Truth Behind This Condition

Even though varicose veins are quite common among both men and women alike, there are still many misconceptions about the condition and its treatment options. Here are some of the most common varicose veins myths debunked and the truth behind this condition:

1. Varicose Veins Are Just a Cosmetic Issue

Contrary to popular belief, varicose veins can be more than just unsightly. In fact, this condition can directly affect a patient’s quality of life and daily activities because it causes symptoms such as:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Tired and aching legs

In fact, when left untreated, varicose veins can become dangerous because the blood that is pooling in these veins can clot. This may then progress into a deep vein clot, known as a DVT, which requires immediate medical attention.

2. There is No Way to Prevent Varicose Veins

Although this is an inherited condition, some people may be able to prevent the onset of varicose veins by performing preventive measures such as:

  • Wearing compression stockings
  • Keeping the feet elevated while sitting
  • Exercising regularly
  • Maintaining a healthy weight

You may also be able to prevent varicose veins by avoiding clothing that constricts your waist, legs, or groin, and staying clear of shoes with high heels.

However, it must be noted that while these measures may help prevent varicose veins in some cases, they may only slow the onset of the condition in individuals who are particularly susceptible.


3. Varicose Vein Treatment is Painful

Unlike traditional surgical interventions for varicose veins, such as vein stripping, modern treatment options, such as sclerotherapy and echosclerotherapy offer a minimally invasive, quick, pain-free and cost-effective way to treat venous conditions.

In fact, sclerotherapy and echosclerotherapy offer patients many benefits and will drastically reduce the appearance of spider veins and varicose veins over the course of just a few sessions at our vein clinic.
