Looking to remove varicose veins from the legs? They can make you feel bad about the way you look and are easy to remove most of the time. There have been some dramatic improvements in the ways we treat varicose veins for patients in Chicago at Chicago Vein Institute. We have locations both in North Center and Downtown Chicago to make it easy for anyone in the area to access our facilities.
Dr. Mensur Sunje, a highly regarded and board certified phlebologist, is the Medical Director of CVI. We house state of the art varicose vein treatments that do not require surgical intervention or vein stripping surgeries. Hospital stays are available but rarely required with the non-surgical varicose vein treatments that we offer.
What causes varicose veins?
Varicose veins are blood vessels beneath the skin that become twisted and enlarged caused by weakened valves and veins. These most commonly appear in the legs and ankles. Varicose veins are usually not a health risk but can hurt the appearance of the skin. Later on, they can cause blood clots and ulcers when left untreated for a long period of time.
In general, varicose veins are caused by lack of movement as well as the natural aging process. It is important to move around and get your blood pumping to keep your veins healthy long term. This is especially important for those working desk jobs, which tends to be most people in this millennial age.
If that sounds like you, make sure you get up and move around! Your future self will thank you!
