1. Eat Fruits and Veggies
Including a broad range of colored fruits and vegetables in your diet can ensure that you obtain all of the important vitamins, minerals, and other elements that your body requires. Cooking gets rid of many vitamins and minerals, so eat your fruits and veggies fresh whenever possible to decrease inflammation and promote blood flow.
Constipation can increase the strain on your veins, so avoid foods like bananas, red meat, chocolate, and dairy items that might promote constipation. On the other hand, most green vegetables and fruits are high in fiber, so they can soften your stools, stimulate bowel movement, and prevent constipation, which can put strain on your veins.
2. Drink Lots of Water/Hydrating Fluids
Drinking plenty of water and staying hydrated will help your body flush out excess salts, lowering blood pressure in your veins and preventing vein disease from developing. Your blood tends to be thinner when you are properly hydrated, which makes it not only easier to circulate, but it is also less likely to clot. Varicose veins and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) are two painful conditions that can be caused by impaired blood circulation and blood clots.
3. Promote Circulation
There are many ways to promote circulation and combat venous insufficiency, which can cause blood to pool in your lower extremities, leading to varicose veins or spider veins. Exercise pumps blood from veins back into the heart and elevating your legs helps gravity to improve blood flow smoothly back to your heart. Gentle massages help – just be careful to avoid applying direct pressure to varicose veins or spider veins that may already be present. Lastly, non-constrictive clothes and flat shoes encourage blood circulation while preventing increased blood flow and pooling in the feet.
BEST – 4. Seek Medical Treatment
Diet and lifestyle can improve symptoms of vein disease but can’t cure it, so the only long-term solution to vein disease is to seek medical attention from a vein doctor at a vein treatment center.
Sclerotherapy, which makes use of tiny needles to inject medicine that improves the appearance of spider veins in just one month, is the standard vein treatment for visible spider veins. VenaSeal, radiofrequency ablation, and varithena are treatments for varicose veins caused by deeper saphenous veins.
VenaSeal is a vein adhesive used to “seal” the saphenous vein in the leg, which causes varicose veins. Radiofrequency ablation is a treatment that uses heat radiation to seal off the damaged vein walls. Varithena is a ready-to-use sclerotherapy foam that is injected into the vein to relieve symptoms and improve the appearance of varicose veins. All of these treatments are relatively painless, and the sessions last about thirty minutes from beginning to end. There is no need for anesthesia or recovery time, so you can go home or back to work immediately after your appointment at the vein treatment center NYC.
Our vein doctors can be found in the vicinity of both Grand Station and Penn Station, making our vein treatment center conveniently accessible by rail, as well as near the Empire State Building, Bryant Park, and Chrysler Building.
