As the cold weather slowly descends upon us, it’s important to make sure that you are taking the proper precautions for the health of your veins. A new study by the University of New Mexico’s Vein and Cosmetic Center reports that “seasonal changes can significantly affect the way your blood circulates, contributing to varicose and spider veins.” This means that certain factors during the winter can cause a shift in your veins, and you may be at risk of developing vein conditions or worsening existing conditions. Dr. Surya Challa of Chesapeake Vein Center and MedSpa is a vein expert with years of experience performing the very treatments that can solve your vein problems.
Varicose and spider veins occur when valves within the vein malfunction, and blood cannot be properly pumped through the circulatory system. These veins then expand and become engorged due to the increased blood pressure, making them visible beneath the skin. Not only do varicose veins give your legs an aged appearance, but they can also make it uncomfortable to stand or walk for long periods of time. The cold weather only increases the chances for these problems, due to slower circulation.
At Chesapeake Vein Center and MedSpa, we offer three different solutions for eliminating visible veins: Venous Duplex Ultrasound, Radiofrequency Ablation, and Ambulatory Phlebectomy. Each of these treatments use different strategies and tactics to improve the comfort and appearance of your legs. During your initial consultation, Dr. Challa will evaluate your condition and recommend the treatment that will be the safest and most effective for your personal needs.
