    Is Laser Vein Removal Right for You?

    Last updated 6 months ago

    Do you suffer from leg swelling or leg pain that typically worsens with activity? Or perhaps you’ve noticed visible veins beneath your skin. You could have varicose veins. It’s a good idea to schedule a visit to a dermatologist’s office for an accurate diagnosis and to explore your treatment options. Your dermatologist may recommend laser vein removal, otherwise known as endovenous laser ablation.

    Indications

    Laser vein removal is a minimally invasive procedure that works by heating the affected vein until it seals shut, thus preventing the blood from accumulating and causing your symptoms. The vein is typically reabsorbed into your body within one to two years. It’s a common misconception that only people who experience symptoms from varicose veins can have laser vein removal. In fact, your dermatologist may recommend this procedure even if you do not experience symptoms. This is because a varicose vein is a condition that typically worsens over time. If left untreated, it can cause pain, swelling, leg ulcers, and other complications. In addition, dermatologists recommend laser vein removal to those who are troubled by the appearance of spider veins. Spider veins are similar to varicose veins; however, they involve smaller veins closer to the surface of your skin.

    Benefits

    When determining whether laser vein removal could be right for you, talk to your dermatologist about the benefits of the procedure. You’ll enjoy pain-free legs and you won’t feel the need to cover them up with long pants due to discoloration. You’ll be able to enjoy your favorite activities without feeling the sensation of heaviness in your legs. Laser vein removal is ideal for many people because it is a simple procedure that doesn’t require a long recovery time. The treatment itself typically takes less than an hour, results are immediately evident, and you can return to your usual activities without delay.

    NATURAL VS ARTIFICIAL:

    Last updated 6 months ago

    70 % + of modern medicines are derived from food or other natural sources.

    On the other hand, natural does not = safe: Consider these 'natural' chemical elements, Arsenic, Uranium Radium; and these natural biological species: poison ivy etc, Deadly nightshade, Destroying Angel and Jack O Lantern mushrooms, Staph Aureus bacteria and other infective bacteria, herpes virus (including simplex varicella/zoster, Epstein Barr, CMV), HIV, etc.  

    Also what is safe for one may not be for another : Strawberries can be tasty or cause major allergic reactions similarly bee honey.

    Finally, take cinnamon tasty fragrance or provoker of allergies, the chemicals cinnamic acid, cinnamic aldehyde, and cinnamic alcohol can be extracted from the root as easily as made from chemical precursors for use in foods, cosmetics, medications, etc.  Assays cannot tell which came from extraction and which from chemical synthesis.  So which is natural and which is artificial?
