A GPS system to navigate your way to healthy legs
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) May 27, 2013
Tired of Covering up?
Visible leg veins are a source of embarrassment for many, often resulting in patients wearing long pants to cover their spider or varicose veins. New technology, merged with proven methods, now clears veins safely and with greater accuracy than ever before.
What is Ultrasound Vein Mapping?
Imagine an accurate GPS system for your legs. Before veins can be treated effectively, we need to know where to go by identifying the source. Vein Mapping allows us to identify the valves causing the problem and target the correct veins for greater patient satisfaction and less return visits.
Faulty valves that inhibit the flow of blood through the vein and cause it to flow in reverse cause varicose veins. This trapped blood causes the veins to swell and results in the ropey, protruding appearance of varicose veins. Many people, along with the unsightly appearance, experience discomfort, pain, and aching legs. Spider veins, on the other hand, rarely cause discomfort but tend to multiply as we age. They appear below the surface of the skin and are usually blue, red, or purple in colour. The name 'spider vein' comes from the multiple offshoots that occur in a starburst pattern; resembling a spiders multiple legs.
Like Bunnies, They Multiply
Genetics, health, lifestyle and age all contribute to leg veins. As people age, they may notice spider veins becoming darker, more prevalent and encroaching on new territory such as feet. These indicators of age are distressing, yet easily rectified and controlled through a treatment program.
