Q: WHAT SHOULD THOSE AFFECTED DO — ARE THERE TREATMENT OPTIONS?
DR. CHAN: The most important thing to know is that there are several options to help treat the signs and relieve the symptoms of varicose veins and chronic venous disease. These include lifestyle changes, compression stockings, along with other treatments including vein stripping, endovenous procedures and sclerotherapy. Newer options include over-thecounter products, such as VENIXXA, which helps relieve the signs and symptoms of mild-to-moderate chronic venous disease. These products have been shown to reduce pain, lower-leg swelling and the sensation of heaviness after just four weeks of treatment.
