Houston Varicose Vein Doctor: Vein Removal Timing

If there is a question a Houston varicose vein doctor is asked most often, it is “How long will it take to get rid of my varicose veins.” This question is often asked by people who have put off seeking varicose vein treatment options in Houston for years, but now that they’ve finally consulted a vein doctor, they’d like us to tell them that they can restore the beauty of their legs overnight.

Sadly, we have to tell them that it doesn’t work that way. Modern varicose vein treatments ARE fast, effective, and so painless that they can be performed in the comfort of our vein clinic in Houston, but the complete elimination of a disease that has been allowed to develop for months or years doesn’t happen overnight. Here’s the honest answer:

“The sooner you treat your varicose veins, the sooner they’ll be gone.”

At present, varicose veins can’t be “fixed” or repaired, with either drugs or surgery. Once the valves that control blood flow become damaged or “leaky” and allow blood to pool up in veins and turn them varicose, there is no reversing that process. As Houston vein doctors, we can prescribe conservative treatments (diet, exercise, the use of compression stockings) to help control negative side effects of varicose veins and prevent the formation of new ones, but the existing varicose veins just aren’t going to go away unless we take more serious action.

Fortunately, that “serious action” is so gentle, fast, and effective that – depending on how many varicose veins you have and how large they are – we can often eliminate all traces of them in a few weeks. This time can vary because only a certain number of veins can be treated at once, so if you have few veins to be treated, completing it takes less time, and if you have more, it takes more time.

Treatment type and duration are individual considerations

Every case is different, and the treatment used for removal depends on your condition. But no matter which technique is used, over the few days following a treatment, the now-closed veins will begin to be absorbed into surrounding tissue and disappear. It may take a few weeks for the last traces of the now-removed veins to disappear, but they WILL disappear. So to make sure it happens as soon as possible, pick up your telephone and call Dr. Rao at 281-888-1464 to get the process started.
