If you are a woman you know that there are hundreds of things we worry about when it comes to our appearance as we get older. Since turning 40 a couple of months ago, it seems common to obsess over all shiny new gray hair, crow’s feet and frown lines. But, one thing that I really don’t like about myself right now is my varicose veins. I seem to have gotten them while I was pregnant 12 years ago and they have just gotten worse over the years, thanks to another pregnancy and a job that kept me on my feet for over 12 hours every day. I have been doing research on how to treat this condition and it appears that there are a lot of places that offer varicose vein treatment in Chicago as well as numerous locations throughout the United States.
What I have found is that varicose veins don’t only affect women. Fifteen percent of men in the US have this condition. I had no idea! Basically varicose veins are either blue or purple in color and they are huge and bulging. They are so ugly that I don’t wear shorts in the summer anymore. Any vein in your body can become twisted but varicose veins generally are found in the legs and feet. I got mine from being pregnant and being on my feet all the time.
For the most part, varicose veins are only a cosmetic concern. But, sometimes this condition will cause pain and aches, which result in a great deal of discomfort. If this occurs and it goes untreated it can lead to serious health problems down the line. Having varicose veins may also be an indicator that you might have some sort of disorder of your circulatory system. So it really is important to seek out varicose vein treatment in Chicago, ;or wherever you are.
You don’t have to live with the discomfort and embarrassment of varicose veins any longer. There are so many treatments available out there right now. It’s time to get back our life and our self-confidence. It’s time to put those shorts back on and strut out beautifully once again. And, men don’t forget about your varicose veins. There are treatments for you too. Everyone deserves to feel young and sexy no matter what gender you are. And if you have varicose veins, you just don’t feel that way. It’s time to be gorgeous again!
