How Long Does it Take to Get Rid of Varicose Veins?

October 11, 2015. Houston, TX. Texas Vein and Wellness Institute releases a new article in which they answer one of the questions they are asked the most by patients: “How long will it really take to eliminate all of my varicose veins?” According to noted Houston varicose vein doctor Dr. Rao, it’s difficult to give a definitive answer to this question because everyone’s condition is different, and the time required for treatment depends to some extent on how many swollen veins need to be treated.

So although he can’t give a general answer that is true for everyone, Dr. Rao wants those who are exploring varicose vein treatment options in Houston to know two important facts. “First, your varicose veins will NOT “get better on their own” or just “go away” on their own – they’ll get worse. Second, how long it takes for the last traces of your varicose veins to disappear depends entirely on how soon you start treating them.”

The best vein doctors in Houston at TXVWI hope that this article reaches a wide audience in the general public and helps them to understand that elimination of varicose veins doesn’t happen overnight, but that within a few short weeks they CAN restore the beauty of their legs – easily, painlessly, and in the comfort of Dr. Rao’s vein clinic in Houston, without having to go to a hospital.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Varicose veins, spider veins, and other vein problems are a common concern. Varicose veins appear as large, blueish veins that bulge from the skin’s surface, while spider veins are smaller, reddish, web-like veins. Over 30 million Americans suffer from some form of vein disease, but it is more common among women than men.

Modern vein treatment techniques address problematic veins in a minimally invasive manner. Treatments such as sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment, radio frequency ablation, and microphlebectomy can be performed on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to enjoy healthier, better looking legs without unnecessary hassle or discomfort.
