Keep Up Your Summer Workout Routine ( https://goo.gl/z6xPFo )

We know the idea of hitting the #gym doesn't necessarily float your boat during the summer. Warm days, relaxed evenings might make you think more about BBQ's and lazy river days instead of working out. But if you suffer from varicose veins, there is an important reason to keep yourself active during the summer months.

There may be additional benefits to working out year-round instead of just keeping those shorts fit you properly! Regular exercise could help minimize the risk of developing varicose veins.

Varicose veins form when blood is not able to adequately pump from the lower legs back up to the heart. As a result, this blood begins to pool in the veins making them enlarged and in some cases physically painful.

If you are at risk of varicose veins there are some activities that are better for the condition than others.
We wrote a blog post all about helpful activities for minimizing the risk of varicose veins.

It's best to consult with your doctor before taking any advice that you read online, but it's likely that you'll be encouraged to participate in exercises that can improve your circulation and help the blood make it's way back up your legs to the heart.

Moderate activity levels with low -impact may help you deter venous disease. Even walking, a simple exercise is considered an excellent way to improve circulation.

Some Helpful Self-Remedies for Varicose Veins ( https://goo.gl/x8sL6P )

Don't let the title of today's post mislead you, in most cases, there is no DIY treatment for varicose veins that will substitute for seeing a medical professional. But that doesn't mean you're completely helpless if you're starting to notice those thin, ropey veins protruding from the surface of your skin.

Hereditary factors absolutely play a role in the development of venous disease, but we often see women develop varicose veins during pregnancy as well. As always, the talented and experienced team at Advanced Vein Therapy are happy to meet new patients around Boise, Idaho who want relief from varicose veins.

You can follow the link above to schedule a consultation with our team. But if you're looking for some ways that you can fight back on your own, consider the following piece of advice.

Increase your physical activity

It sounds like a no-brainer, but remember increasing your heart rate helps cycle blood to move better through the legs and calf muscles. If you work in an office, remember to take frequent breaks in order to allow yourself to move around and help your blood circulate.

Schedule reminders in your phone if it helps!

More on Radiofrequency Ablation from AVT ( https://goo.gl/PN1q7j )

"Highly effective and minimally invasive" are what we try to provide for every patient visiting us for the treatment of venous disease. No two patients are the same, and treatment approaches will be customized for each unique case. However, the mechanism that causes venous disease are similar - it's a diseased valve that doesn't function as efficiently in getting blood flowing back to the heart from the legs.

One specific treatment that many patients of Advanced Vein Therapy rave about is RFA, short for radiofrequency ablation. As the name implies, this modality uses radiofrequency energy to treat diseased veins.

Correcting chronic vein insufficiency is fast and safe through RFA, and in the hands of the experienced and talented doctors at Advanced Vein Therapy, you'll be back to your regularly scheduled lifestyle sooner than you think.

Ultrasound guidance provides highly accurate insertion of a catheter, then radiofrequency energy and gentle compression is combined to heat and seal segments of the diseased vein.

We encourage anyone curious about RFA to check out the video below. After you've learned about the procedure, head over to our website and request a consultation with a member of our team.

What Do the Movie 'Jaws' and Varicose Veins Have in Common? ( https://goo.gl/x8sL6P )

Remember the #movie Jaws? If you're still dubious about hopping into the ocean, you've probably seen it. While shark attacks are extremely rare, we have a natural inclination to be a little concerned about what we can't see beneath the surface.
Similarly, what are the chances that someone might have varicose veins lurking under the surface of their skin, even if they can't be seen?

Around 30% of the population suffers from varicose veins. But not being able to see venous disease does not mean one is totally clear of having them.

Having superficial varicose veins is OK because at least the patient knows what condition is affecting their quality of life. Treatment of varicose veins or spider veins means the patient can more quickly regain their quality of life.

Varicose veins that aren't present might actually bring more risk of complications due to venous disease.

If you experience chronic tiredness in your legs or work in an industry that causes you to sit or stand for long periods of time it may be worth making an appointment with Advanced Vein Therapy.

Aching legs can be one of the early indicators of venous disease and it's better to get this situation handled before it turns into something more serious.

The Struggle with Spider Veins ( https://goo.gl/6YrPUU )

When it comes to #skin treatment, there are plenty of options for an individual face. There are full aisles dedicated to over-the-counter skin care for facial blemishes. But when it comes to those bluish, tiny, ropey spider veins on the legs or ankles drug stores don't have much to offer.

If you're someone dedicated to flawless skin, the appearance of spider veins can provide a lot of pressure. Skin is the largest organ in the body, which means blemishes and hereditary conditions, like a venous disease, can be a large area to maintain.
This is exactly where Advanced Vein can be your greatest resource in Boise, Idaho. One author of a beauty blog, iDiva, described her struggle with varicose veins. Here's a clip from her article:

Varicose veins and spider veins are not a controllable thing. The only way to treat them is to have [them treated] by a doctor. Most people who have them see them every day and don't need a reminder from others. To have it pointed out by people who think something is strong with your face or body on top of that makes the whole thing a lot worse.

One of the recent options made available for our patients is VenaSeal. Our website describes more about the treatment:

VenaSeal is a cutting edge approach to the treatment of venous disease that involves inserting a small catheter into the affected area and delivering medical adhesive to certain areas on along the diseased vein and sealing it shut. This causes the blood to reroute to healthy veins deeper within the leg.

Each patient at AVT is unique, so to find out which treatment may be right for your condition, the best place to start is at our website. You can request a consultation and learn more about our team.
