Is there a Topical Treatment for My Varicose Veins?

Dr. Paul Feldman is a Piedmont Clinic physician who provides state of the art outpatient vein treatment at Truffles Vein Specialists. He is one of the first vein doctors to perform the VenaSeal procedure and the first in the Piedmont system.

Natural treatments for varicose veins can be found all over the internet. As a vein specialist, I am astonished at the naivety of the general public when it comes to this condition. It is hard for me to remember a time when I didn’t understand venous anatomy and physiology. I was recently discussing venous disease with my daughter and her friends, who are all very smart and headed to college, when I realized all of those basic anatomy lessons in school had long been forgotten. They didn’t understand the difference between arterial and venous disease even though they are taught about circulation multiple times during middle school and high school. It occurred to me that instead of looking at this topic from that of an insider, I needed to look at it from the consumer’s point of view. The truth is that if veins are not your profession, or unless you have had a major medical vein related incident, then they just an area of the universe that doesn’t require any thought or attention.

Based on this, I can see why the average person, who suddenly notices veins popping out of his/her legs, and now has to choose between an expensive surgery or an inexpensive topical cream, would choose the cream. Vein disease is a medical condition and is relatively expensive to treat when compared to any over the counter product or natural supplement. The problem is these creams and natural remedies are really nothing but fool’s gold. Vein disease is due to venous valve failure and is a mechanical problem. The valves are damaged and no longer work correctly. Everyone, who has had a leaking faucet at home, understands that there isn’t anything you can spray or rub on a leaking faucet to make it stop. You either fix the faucet or shut off the water. In the vein world, we only know how to close the veins (essentially turning off the water).

 

Finding the right facility for vein treatment can often be a daunting task. At Truffles Vein Specialists, we make finding the right vein treatment plan easy. Clients can take comfort in knowing their veins will be treated by Dr. Feldman, a board certified surgeon, with years of experience. In addition, clients will find a more personalized approach to veins with each patient receiving personalized care and their own treatment plan. Truffles Vein Specialists has the latest in vein treatment technology. Many people prefer to avoid anesthetic whenever possible, but some vein facilities still operate with the idea that sedation is a must. At Truffles Vein Specialists, we use the latest technology to ensure the procedure is as painless as possible. Gone are the days of having to take days off work and feeling groggy for days after, instead, at Truffles, you will find a quick in and out procedure performed by the most competent staff.
