As someone in their late 20s, it won’t be long before I hit the big 3-0! Just last week at lunch with a friend, she started teasing me on entering the new decade. She said it won’t be long before the laugh lines, crow’s feet, and spider veins appear. I just laughed it off. Well that is until later in the week I was cleaning out my desk and happened upon a little photo album from high school. Wow I wish I had my 17 year old legs again! Maybe my friend was right. My body is not in the shape or form as it was 10 years ago, and I accept that. Though it doesn’t mean I can’t make an effort to prevent or fix anything I deem unsightly.
As we age, our bodies will change, and varicose veins (spiders veins) maybe quickly appear. However it isn’t just the appearance that can cause concern. Varicose veins can often cause issues such as fatigue and swelling. Plus they can become down right painful! As the condition worsens, you may feel burning and itching, or start to feel ill if you stand on your feet for long periods of time.
Luckily, there is the Vein Clinic of America, who not only specialize exclusively in vein condition treatments, but they are the largest group of vein specialists in the nation. With access to such a highly trained network of physicians, what would hold one back from pursing treatment?
I think that comes down to cost and that one may not know what to expect. At your initial consultation, the doctor you meet with take extra care in examining your condition discussing all your treatment options, a customizing plan of action, and of course answering any questions or concerns you may have. Still unsure about the final cost figure? After you meet with the doctor, the office manager will take time to go over all your insurance benefits and what is covered.
I think one important aspect is that while we age, vein issues won’t just appear on our legs, but on other body parts as well. The appearance of veins becomes more prominent as we age because our skin starts to stretch and sag. If you start to notice the appearance of more veins, it may be worth a consultation with a medical professional at Vein Clinics of America.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there is a Vein Clinic right here in my city of Annapolis. In Maryland alone there are 7 clinics. For my Washington DC and Virginia neighbors, the Alexandria vein treatment center is conveniently located closer to you.
