New Varicose Vein Device Uses Infrared to View Hidden Veins

accuvein4-thHaving performed over 5000 sclerotherapy procedures, the most difficult legs to treat are those with what I refer to as hidden reticular veins or feeders.

Reticular veins are blue surface veins that are usually present in the outside part of the thigh and lower leg. They are also referred to as “feeders” as they feed the smaller spider veins. Phlebology 101 teaches you to treat these feeders first before even attempting to treat the spider veins. This way you can ensure permanent and successful results and help avoid matting.

Top 5 Myths About Varicose Veins

Myth #2 - Crossing Your Legs Will Give You Varicose Veins

There is no evidence to support this. The best way to avoid varicose veins, or to slow the progression of pre-existing varicose veins, is to get enough rest, eat a healthy diet to keep your weight down, and regular exercise. If you already have varicose veins, support stockings are a great help. Herbal supplements have been known to improve pain and swelling but have never been proven to heal bad veins or prevent healthy ones from deteriorating.
