First, try to seek treatment as soon as it is feasible for you to do so
When it comes to vein disease, every day that you delay treatment is another day that the disease has the chance to erode your health and make you miserable. While the varicose veins or spider veins you’re experiencing now are bad in themselves, ignoring them only allows them to get worse and turn into crippling disorders that can become so painful as to leave you unable to walk. The sooner you act, the sooner you’ll feel healthy again.
Second, be honest with your Hawaii vein specialist
You’re planning to meet with one of the best vein doctors in Hawaii, so tell them the truth. If you smoke, admit it. They can help you stop. If you really get almost no exercise each week, don’t claim to get more. If your job requires you to sit at a desk most of the day, every day, tell that to your doctors, because it makes a difference in the types of treatments they prescribe, and their effectiveness.
Third, commit to your Maui vein treatment
By “commit” we don’t mean that you have to marry us — that might be going too far. Many of you might not even live here in our beautiful Hawaiian islands, and are here only for the length of time it takes to complete your treatments. And whether your varicose vein removal treatment consists of sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment, or radiofrequency ablation, the actual treatments themselves can often be completed in one or two visits, each taking only a little over an hour.
But to really fully benefit from your Maui vein treatment, you should commit to taking good care of yourself after it is completed. One of the advantages of the minimally-invasive treatments we offer is that they do not require a lengthy recovery period. Once your swollen veins have been removed, they’re gone. But you should plan on paying attention to any follow-up instructions that your doctor gives you, such as wearing compression stockings for a period of time to speed healing. Your doctor might also recommend walking every day to reinvigorate your circulation, while at the same time restricting strenuous exercise or activity for a week or two.
Also, to keep your veins healthy, you should follow your doctor’s suggestions about lifestyle choices – smoking cessation, getting more exercise, losing weight, taking more “mini-breaks” at work, etc. Committing to taking care of your veins will help to insure that they don’t become damaged or diseased in the future.
