3 Vein Tips For Spring
Even though you have been able to hide your varicose veins under a lot of layers during the winter, spring is just around the corner which means that it’s time to face your veins. Here at Northern Michigan Vein Specialists, we offer patients a variety of treatment options and support to help you get rid of your varicose veins just in time for shorts weather.
Watch What You Eat
Watching what you eat won’t just help you look slimmer in your swimsuit this summer, but it will also help you get rid of the added weight that may be contributing to your varicose veins. Now, we aren’t saying that you have to go cold turkey and cut out all fats and sugars, but by making small changes like switching from soda to water or only having dessert on the weekends, you can help to get off extra weight and feel better in the process.
Start A Workout Plan
Exercise is great for increasing your blood circulation through your veins and getting rid of extra weight. Start a workout plan this spring that you enjoy and that you know you can stick to. For instance, you can do something as small as taking your dog on walks every day or starting a weekly class at your community center; as long as you’re getting your heart rate up, you should notice some results in relief from varicose veins symptoms.
Other than making lifestyle changes, we have plenty of treatment options to help you get rid of your varicose veins. During your initial consultation with Dr. Heeringa, he will go over all of your treatment options including sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, and some of our conservative treatments.
Make this summer the summer that you feel confident enough to show off your legs by getting rid of your varicose veins. To learn more, contact us at our Traverse City or Cadillac office today. Call us at (231) 936-2068.
