Did Pregnancy Cause my Varicose Veins?

Mother’s Day is a sure sign of spring! It can also be a reminder of the unsightly varicose veins and spider veins that developed during pregnancy. Hormonal changes and increased pressure on leg veins, due to weight gain, are potential side effects of pregnancy and increase the chances of developing vein disease. Take the time to celebrate your motherhood and your health by talking with a doctor about available treatments.

What is the Recovery Time?

When you have children, a procedure's recovery time is a major concern. Luckily, technological advancements have enabled physicians to simplify the treatment of varicose veins and spider veins. Most procedures are minimally invasive, so they do not require hospital stays, and they use local anesthesia rather than general anesthesia. This means a faster return to your normal routine, and your kids. Learn more about treatment options, and find a doctor today.
