Christmas is on the way and before you know it we will be thinking about the new year. New Year’s resolutions can be great motivators to make life changes. Certainly, getting healthier is on many people’s lists, and that’s a good thing for a lot of reasons. Not only does taking better care of yourself benefit your overall health, but it can also help improve your leg and vein health, too. Here are a few ways to help your legs look and feel healthier:

  • Eat well – Eating a well-balanced diet can help maintain healthy leg veins.
  • Move a little – You don’t have to be a “gym rat” to strengthen your legs and improve blood circulation. Try walking, jogging or dancing your way to healthier legs!
  • Hit your healthy weight – Getting to the healthy weight for you can help you avoid varicose veins, or if you already have them, may improve the condition.
  • Protect your skin – Extensive sun exposure and heat can cause spider veins and varicose veins to worsen in the summer. Never leave the house without applying sunscreen on your legs and other exposed areas.
  • Become a non-smoker – Smokers are at a higher risk for vascular and vein diseases than non-smokers. And even being around a smoker can damage your body’s vascular system.
  • Put the pressure on – Wearing compression stockings during the day can help improve blood circulation and relieve some symptoms of varicose veins. Ask your doctor about them!

Healthy legs, and a healthier you, start here

Living a positive, healthy lifestyle can do wonders for your leg health. If you’re bothered by the discomfort of varicose veins or spider veins, the right treatment can relieve that discomfort and restore your confidence.

Just finished my treatment at the Chicago Vein Institute and I'm very happy with the services they provided. Dr. Sunje and his medical team did an excellent job. All of the treatments and aftercare were explained to me thoroughly and clearly. My appointments were scheduled very well to accommodate... my work hours, and they were helpful with my health insurance as well which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend them to all of my family and friends!read more

Ship- I don't know but I'm getting a lot of pain. I'm going 8/17 for my appointment. Why? I don't understand why it hurts. It's been ongoing.

Chicago Vein Institute is the place to go to change your life around! I knew my veins in legs were not good but didn't know how bad until the Chicago Vein Institute evaluated them and successfully treated them. I feel like I have new legs again, thanks to the Chicago Vein Institute. The doctors... and staff educated me about vein disease, very professional, nice and invested in patients' success. Best investment of time, money and energy for one's future.read more

If you suffer from rhoids (you know what I’m talking about!) just come here. They treat them with infrared laser to reduce the swelling and it helps tremendously. It’s a quick procedure and you’ll be feeling better soon after. Don’t walk around in silence. Yes it’s awkward but it’s better than... being in pain! I hope my review helps someone. I didn’t see any other reviews about them so thought I would help others out there. They do get busy so keep that in mind. Appointments are not always immediate. They were nice enough to squeeze me in one day on the same day basis because I was in so much pain. I’m very grateful for them.read more

Just had a wonderful experience at CVI. As a new patient, I learned so much from Paul. It is clear he loves his job, which makes the experience that much more positive. Dr. Sunje provided excellent care. I found the right place.

Dr. Sunje and his staff: Sandy/Vanessa- Receptionists; Cece, Paul, Madeline, Jackie, Vanessa, Joanna and Gabriela, are professional at what they do, respectively, yet personal in caring about my well being throughout the process. Each time I went, regardless of who was assisting with my outpatient... procedures, they were in tuned to making sure I was taken care of. Dr. Sunje called me on a Saturday to see how I was doing from an outpatient procedure I had completed the previous day. I look forward to my visits knowing that the best outcome will be achieved with Dr. Sunje and his staff.read more

My doc Cece was so nice and made me feel very welcomed. I asked for a specific, natural look and that’s exactly what I got. I had many questions and all of them were answered with full details. Her assistant Jazmine was so sweet and made me feel welcomed. I would definitely recommend! Every penny... was worth it. Quality service in all aspectsread more

This is the best vein clinic I have been to. Staff is very friendly and pleasant and Dr. Sunje gives you his undivided attention. I went for spider vein sclerotherapy on my legs and they did not only do an excellent job removing spider veins but also walked me through the steps of the procedure and... did a quick ultrasound to determine and explain the underlaying causes of my spider veins. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone with vein-related concerns on their legs.read more

I have been to the Chicago Vein Institute twice to see Lauren for lip fillers.I can't express just how happy I am with my results! She was able to create the exact shape and pout that I was looking for. Lauren is very gentle and precise with her work. Honestly, I'm hooked and cannot wait to go back... to see her again!read more

I had such an amazing experience at the clinic. I had Dysport injections with Cecilia Lee and could not be happier with the results. She took excellent care of me and made me feel very comfortable with the procedure. Everyone I interacted with at the clinic was very professional and courteous.

The staff, physicians, nurses, PAs, NPs and administrative support, are incredibly friendly, and show genuine concern for the patient. Physicians and nurses take their time, reviewing procedures with clients, and patiently answers questions. The level of competence is very high. I have been to a... lot of offices that offer medical and cosmetic procedures, but this is the absolute best I ever found, bar none. I recommended the Chicago Vein Institute to my friends, and will continue to do so. I wish I could give more than 5 points!read more
