If you’re on the Internet a lot, you know that the acronym ‘FAQ’ stands for Frequently Asked Questions. Well, if there is one question that we as Hawaii vein specialists are asked more than any other, it’s “Can you REALLY make my varicose veins go away forever?” People who ask this are always hoping that the answer is “Yes,” but years of experience have taught us that they have lived with their swollen and discolored veins for so long that it’s hard for them to even conceive of being able to look in the mirror again and no longer seeing them.
So one of the most rewarding aspects of being a vein care specialist in Kauai is being able to look these patients in the eye and say, “YES, we really CAN make your varicose veins go away, and go away PERMANENTLY.”
So how do we do it? What does it take to remove varicose veins permanently?
To understand how Maui vein treatment works to eliminate varicose veins forever, you have to understand what causes them: chronic venous insufficiency, or CVI. Your veins don’t have internal muscles to pump blood the way arteries do, so they rely on the contraction of nearby muscles. What controls the blood flow and keeps it going in one direction – back to the heart and lungs – are a series of tiny, one-way valves. In a healthy person these valves open to allow blood to flow through but then close immediately afterwards. CVI damages the valves and makes them “leaky,” so that blood flows backwards into the veins and pools there, causing them to swell and become discolored.
Once this has happened and a vein has become varicose, unfortunately it can’t be “fixed,” either with drugs or surgery. The only way to eliminate the swollen veins and restore the original beauty of your legs is to remove the veins entirely. Fortunately, the modern minimally-invasive methods that the best vein doctors in Hawaii use to do this are painless, fast, and don’t even require you to go to a hospital to have them performed. The ugly veins can be permanently closed in the comfort of your local vein treatment center in Hawaii in about an hour, and after they have been closed, within a few weeks they are absorbed into surrounding tissue and visible traces of them disappear. Once treated in this way, varicose veins don’t reoccur – they really are gone forever.
