Summer legs … can you ‘bare’ them?

The U-M Vein Center specialists treat spider and varicose veins to improve the health and look of your legs

water legs blogWe know it’s chilly outside now, but summer is on its way! Your legs have probably been covered up, trying to stay warm for the last several months. But now is the time to take a look and start thinking about the shorts and sandals season. Start thinking about summer legs!

If you have spider veins that don’t go with your summer wardrobe, there’s a solution. The University of Michigan Vein Centers in Livonia and Troy can help you get your legs ready for summer. The key is to act now because it typically requires more than one treatment and results are best after 6-8 weeks.

Our U-M Vein Center team can help with vein issues ranging from spider veins and swelling to painful varicose veins. Most spider veins and varicose veins can be treated with sclerotherapy. Some varicose veins require endovenous ablation. Endovenous ablation is a popular alternative to the historical stripping procedure; it is minimally invasive and done right in the office. We work with you, and together we create an individualized treatment plan that is best for you.
