Varicose veins are bent or distorted veins, which are common in the legs and high-pressure areas of the body. Nearly one in five adults have them, and while they're usually not harmful, many people receive treatment regardless. After having your varicose veins treated, you may have to deal with inflammation, skin sores, or discolored or ugly patches of skin. To that end, Lavior products, which are focused primarily on skin care and surface treatment, can help.

Deal With Inflammation And Heat

Bent veins have a more difficult time transporting blood throughout the body. This often causes swelling in the veins as blood flow slows and clogs in areas, creating larger blue veins near the surface of your skin that some people find ugly. Because varicose veins are near the surface of the skin though, they’re easily affected by skin creams and hand applied ointments. These can be used to reduce inflammation and redness in your skin and veins after varicose treatments. 

 

Products That Reduces Sores And Ulcers

Unlike arteries which carry oxygen from the heart and lungs to the rest of the body, veins carry your now relatively oxygen-less blood back to the heart. Varicose veins become even more oxygen-deprived, so ulcers and sores can form on the skin above them. Products that specifically treat skin sores and ulcers on the legs when they form, such as Lavior brand creams, can thus be useful in the aftercare of your skin if you have varicose veins.

 

Moisturize And Heal

Treating varicose veins can leave your skin irritated due to their proximity to the damaged or healing veins. Of course, your skin can be discolored or dry even before that, since varicose veins may be worse at transferring nutrients to your skin. As such, moisturizers and skin care products that help to fight against the dry and scaly skin, or that help with discoloration, are useful in the aftercare of varicose symptoms. They can also reduce itchiness in these affected areas.

 

Reduce Scarring

Endovenous ablation therapy is a method of treating varicose veins that involves making an incision, then using heat to close the vein. Endoscopic vein surgery also involves careful incisions near the affected area, though this process is usually only used if sores have already formed. While surgery will help your varicose veins, it comes with increased aftercare needs as well.

Naturally, any incision in your skin can cause scarring or long-term damage to your skin. It's important to support healing in the affected area after the incision is made, to close the wound cleanly and efficiently. Lavior products can reduce scarring and promote healing in incision wounds, which can help in this regard.

 

Wrapping Up

The aftercare of varicose veins can be important if you want to avoid scarring or damage to your skin. Dealing with inflammation and swelling can help both before and after the treatment of varicose veins. Said treatment usually involves incisions or abuse to the affected area, so treatments that reduce scarring are one of our highest suggestions. And since ulcers and sores can form, products that can treat these aberrations on your skin can be very helpful in the end.
